Style Sheets

Get Rid of the Plus Sign (Local Formatting)

I applied a style sheet to some text, but some or all of the text didn't change to match the paragraph style. And there's a “plus” symbol after the style sheet name.


The plus symbol means that the text has local formatting (manual formatting) “on top” of the formatting applied by the style sheet. (Note: The plus symbol only appears when such locally-formatted text is part of a text selection, or your insertion point is blinking within it.) InDesign retains local formatting even when text is linked to a style sheet because it thinks that's what you want.
