Changing Paragraph Style in InCopy story does not prompt check-out dialog
InDesign 13.1 and 14.0 both exhibit this behavior.
If you have an InCopy story that is not checked out to you, and you attempt to change a paragraph or character style, the following happens:
The style change does not take effect (this is correct)
- The newly-selected style appears to be selected in the paragraph style panel (incorrect)
The "You must check out the contents of this frame in order to make changes. Check out now?" dialog does not appear. (incorrect)
I expect the "You must check out the contents of this frame in order to make changes. Check out now?" dialog to appear.
There are a few other inconsistencies in these sort of actions as well -- with a checked-in story, most text editing options in the control panel are not available -- but changing the weight of a typeface is, although, like changing a paragraph style, it doesn't do anything. Typing a space produces the expected "Wanna check out? dialog; but typing a tab doesn't.
Thank you for submitting this.
