I've been working on a very long document (a book manuscript) for a few weeks now using Pages (OS Mountain Lion). I had all my Styles set up like I wanted - including the fonts, font sizes, paragraph spacing, etc. Well, for some reason, today when I started working on the document, the styles aren't working right! Here's what's happening...
I'd been working on this document by copying and pasting from a Word document in order to format this book for the author I'm working for. She had set the original document using Palatino font. For the new document, I have Minion Pro assigned to both the Normal style and the Body Text First Indent style. Up until now, I would copy and paste from the Word doc into the Pages doc and then triple-click each paragraph and then click on the Style to assign to that paragraph - which would then changing everything necessary to match the formatting of the new document (the font would change from Palatino 12 to Minion Pro 11, etc.).
Today, when I tried to continue working in this manner, when I click on the Style to assign to the paragraph, it doesn't change the font but leaves it at Palatino and at size 12. I have tried to "edit" the Styles to make them update again - thinking they'd somehow lost the original specs I'd assigned to them - but it doesn't change anything. I really need this to work again!! Not sure what would have changed it to cause this problem. I can't finish out this book having to manually change the font and font size for every paragraph! That defeats the whole point of using styles, right?!
Any help would be greatly appreciated...!!
