Cut and paste in Indesign style names

Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum.

I have a question about the cut and paste in Indesign: Let's say I have two documents.

-In the first, I have several rules of paragraph style, let's say style1, style2, style3.

-In the second document, I have exactly the same paragraph style (style1, style2, style3) names, but different formatting rules (for example in doc1 style1 is 13 times, the same style1 doc2 is Minion 11).

What I want to do is to copy the text of document 1, the selected paragraph style name, but not the setting shaped styles. So when I did the copied text in document 2, can I get the text automatically style with rules of formatting of document 2.

I can't find a way to do it: I cut & spent keeping the formatting, but not the names of the styles only.

Did someone in the face of this problem or have a solution?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi everyone and thanks for your help.

I finally found out why the cut & paste has not worked for me.

The problem was that in doc1, I put all my styles in a folder, while in doc2 (take a guess!) No.

That was the problem. Once I put in a folder with the same name as doc1 doc2 styles, everything worked magically.

Thank you very much!

  • keep the formula when cut and paste cells

    I have a workbook for card games where we're going to turn seats/tables throughout the day (6 moves in total).  I have reproduced the a sheet that has cells with formulas to pick up names among the other sheets in the workbook.  When I cut and paste them, for my seat of update, the formula of data changes.  IE:, journal name game 1, cell #A1 said = name cell A2 of sheet summary and so on.  When I cut and paste, it will change this formula in the correct sheet but bad cell.  Why is she even change any link to the other sheet?

    Thank you.

    It is difficult to follow what you describe here.  By workbook (not a term of numbers), it seems you're saying that worksheet. But in numbers, you can't have a sheet that contains cells. The cells are take-away in an array of numbers that is located on a sheet.  You can duplicate a table of numbers and you can also duplicate a sheet of numbers, but it is not too clear what you're doing.  How about providing a screenshot of what happens?

  • Images lost during operations cut-and - paste from memory card on my computer

    I was moving pictures on my memory card in a folder in "my pictures" using the cut and paste.
    on my memory card and when I plugged my camera into my computer, the photos were in different files as the memory card has been put in two cameras; a samsung and a cannon. Some of the pictures so share the same name of the image.
    When I cut and pasted the warning came to say something in the sense of 'element already exists, replace the existing file' I clicked on "Yes to all" without thinking about it, and now I've lost the almost all of a folder of photos! And because they were cut out of the memory of the device, I can't think of a way to get back them.
    I tried many searches in my files to try and find / recover, but I have no idea where they would have gone!
    They are pictures of vacation and I really want to try to recover, any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • Dreamweaver - cut and paste text of strange characters appear

    Just started using Adobe Dreamweaver.   When I cut and paste Google adsense of Google Chrome ad codes in Dreamweaver, the "citations" are transformed into: & gt;

    Here's a sample:

    < script >

    (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle | .push ({}) [of]);

  • Cut and paste the text of the anchored text box?

    CS4, Mac G5, Leopard.

    I've recently been investigating scripts in InDesign and I have a problem to solve that exceeds my, base, understand.

    I used Rorohiko "Lightning Brain text exporter" to extract text (rtf) of a book.

    The text contains countless anchor text blocks. I would like to be able to select all the text in the block of text anchored, cut and paste it into the document where the anchor element is referenced, and then remove the anchor text (now empty) block.

  • Layers: Copying, cutting and pasting

    Another feature I am used that I can't live without (coming from a background of Corel PHOTO-PAINT), is the ability to copy or cut a layer with CTRL + C or CTRL + X. In Photoshop, first of all, you have to CTRL + click on the layer to select its transparency and then CTRL + C to copy the layer, but I'll tell you why it isn't ideal. First of all, it's one more step that is totally useless. Second, sometimes I want to cut the layer completely, which means storing the entire layer to the Clipboard and delete in the same process. In this way, I can just paste right back into my document if I want or I can select a different document and just paste it. I realize, you can drag and drop, but add this feature would not ruin all the existing features, and it makes sense!

    To clarify, my request is that if no mask is selected and someone hits CTRL + C or CTRL + X he copies or reduce the entire layer, and layer attached to it masks.

    Thanks for listening

    I feel that, by allowing the copy/cut of the layers in the way you propose, it would create a paradox of the Photoshop interface.

    The paradox would be: If we allow this to happen, then should we also allow the copy/excision of channels, styles, presets, accurate history, swatches & etc.?

    Pretty weird (come to think of it), it works with the railways, if... Well, maybe it's preventing them to apply this feature to the layers. Try this: open the paths and layers palettes. Create an image with a layer and a path. Then, select the layer in the palette. And select a path in the palette. Copy (or cut). There he goes: the functionality you want, but in the wrong palette ;-) Easy don't paths... but then again, the railways are not as annoying as pixels...

    As I see it, essentially (PS and I, don't know ' end other applications), elements that appear inside the pallets are prohibited for common OS operations such as copy, cut, and paste. For these operations, you must use the corresponding palette menu.

    I guess it's something to do with the maintenance of the entire uniform user interface, without "pallets of rebels behave differently from others" (well, we already have a: paths!) "Maybe thay don't want another?) And also, it keeps things simple and intuitive. Think about it: If you have so many possible recipients for content in the Clipboard, Visual reference of where you want to put to get totally awkward (imagine someone with 3 monitors, 2 of them filled with open palletes PS):

    "Allright, I want to stick this thing that I got in the paper..."

    ...

    hummmm...

    (eyes desperately scanning the monitors and editing... neck pain)

    ... ah! Gotcha, here it goes

    Heck! Come to the wrong place! Argh!

    .... ..."

    It's a chore. I don't want that. It is not always that I know what is in the Clipboard (I remember HAVE contained one like it, Kind ' a 'show' content of the Clipboard-(Hey, it's another request for devs make'em!))

    --------------------

    On a different subject:

    Some while ago, I was struggling remove some 30 masks + I had in this doc PS of the mine. Man, HOW I WISH I could CMD-select all these channels and delete'em all in a scream. At that point, I was really upset and wrote a demand function (I guess it was for CS2) about the deletion of multiple channels in the palette layers. After a few ranting I've cooled down and started to think straight, so I thought: if they do not have the aux channels on a separate palette, or do not clearly separation between the layers of color and auxiliary channels, we would never have to be able to remove multiple channels, ' cos that just don't make sense (you can select several channels , but cannot delete them. Something to do with the color channels? Guess it would be weird, but don't know for sure why. A Photoshop guru could enlighten us?

    --------------------

    Carefully read your posts, I understand that you don't like Shuffle windows. So here's a tip, where the devs don't you listen to:

    Create a new Action and assign a function key (i.e. F2).

    In the Actions Palette, select it and on the Actions Palette Menu, assign a menu item to the action. Choose "layer > duplicate layer...» "You can then select a layer or a group (works with both), press F2, and then choose the destination of duplication among all open documents. You can even create a new doc that contains only the duplication.

    It's not like you want, but close enough.

  • Cut and paste the tables of a project to another

    When cut and paste existing tables from one project to another, the weight of the line for the cell borders appear to vary randomly - some are the original line weight and some are heavier when pasted.

    I tried to unravel with the properties of the table, but without result dialog.

    Is there a quick fix or I'm better import in all subjects, then changing any theme?

    Hi Colum/Peter,

    It is not a custom table, I just need to copy a table from one project to the other.

    Blasted my developers (may the fleas of a thousand camels, etc), recently decided to change toolbars in one of our applications. As this toolbar appears in slightly different forms in about 6 tabs, I tried to update the table that shows which icon does what and cut and paste this table in all subprojects that I. Each table then needs only a minor modification for some this subproject-specific icons.

    Peter on the right track. When I cut and glued to the table, it is also stuck in a number of lines of HTML associated with styles in the other project. If I delete these lines, the table will appear as it should.

    Thanks for the quick reply

  • How to cut and paste the image of the body of the received email

    I'm trying to cut and paste an image included in the bottom of an email and insert it into a Word document so that you can size and print. I can highlight, cut it with Ctrl C, paste it into the document Word with Ctrl V, but the image doesn't show, although the picture frame appears when I click on the place where the photo was pasted. Framework, but empty, no image. Any thoughts?

    Thanks to everyone for their help.

    The problem has been resolved - to try and finally understand everything.

    If you encounter this problem, it is perhaps because, unless you know the file format of the inserted picture, programs can not figure it out for you. Place your cursor on the image, right click and save the image under a .jpeg instead of simply copying. Then work with the file .jpeg in any photo management program you use normally - or even insert it in Word.

    It does not work.

    You can have a degree of capability.policy.allowclipboard.sites pref, so in your case, the second line with http://www.mozilla.org will replace the first with the office.iris.ac server.

    If you need more than one URL, separate by spaces, but in your case, you don't need the mozilla site that is indicated as an example.

    user_pref("capability.policy.policynames", "allowclipboard");
    user_pref("capability.policy.allowclipboard.sites", "http://office.iris.ac");
