Stylesheets not working with placeholders...

Post by vom491 » 18 Oct 2005, 14:10

I experienced the same problems with imported XML text not taking the applied styles. However, the text took on whatever my Normal paragraph style was set at, so I modified the Normal paragraph style then created character styles for other styles I wanted to use. Used the Normal style for entire XML text, and used character style for specific instances. It worked for me, maybe it'll work for you.

Stylesheets not working with placeholders...

Post by mpretka » 08 Feb 2006, 21:40

I am finding style sheet paragraph formatting will work if the tag is a the begining of a line and preceeded by a space - which is an annoyance in the layout. I also find that if you work with positioning the place holders or change style sheets they may stop working. Deleteing the placeholders and starting over seems to clear this up. I am using OSX 10.4 and Quark 6.5.
