I'm typesetting a document in InDesign, copy/pasting from a TextEdit file that I copy/pasted into from a client-supplied PDF. Not sure if its the greatest workflow, but I collated all the text from the PDF into the TextEdit file because the PDF didn't have editable text, and so I could have all of the text in one place (and not use Word). I thought this would strip the text to as close as plain text as could be, so when I paste it into InDesign, I could apply a Paragraph style with no problems. But when I'm doing this, I'm getting colors that aren't even in the Paragraph style that I'm applying:
and the formatting seems to be almost random in different instances and I don't know why. I thought I could override whatever was going but no errors are showing up in the Paragraph styles panel in any of the cases:
So not sure what to do or why its doing that, and where purple is coming from when its nowhere in the style? Maybe missing something simple but I don't know what.
