This is more of a description of a problem I'm having and not so much of a question. When I make a paragraph and format it to be the right size font and color, I can't highlight text and click on a character style without first clearing overrides. That would be fine, but it changed the font size, leading and kerning to some default size 12. So after clearing and clicking on the character style I have to edit the kerning, leading and font size. At that point it would be faster to highlight the text I want and manually set all the things I set up in my character style. Maybe I'm missing an easy work around. If anyone knows of a workaround I would appreciate it.
