External Styles / Style Libraries to push Style updates dynamically and automatically to all documents.
Please develop some kind of External Style file format, that can be applied locally, and hopefully, via the cloud. But at least locally, PLEASE.
It is a crime that InDesign currently has NO WAY whatsoever to keep multiple documents styles synced. I run into this deeply frustrating problem all the time.
Currently, If I create a template file with some styles, and use that to create documents, and then If I update or refine paragraph styles, character styles, table styles, etc — there is no way for me to easily carry over those same styles to all other documents that are using those same styles.
This is deeply insane.
Please. PLEASE. It is 2019. Fix this.
Styles should work like external Sketch file library updates do. They should work like External CSS code. It should be possible to update a style in one document and push that style update to ALL documents using that Style Library.

Currently, you can use the Book feature to sync several INDD files to a Master and update all by modifying this Master.
But, it's a workaround and —like you— I'd prefer to be able to link my documents to the Styles I'm placing in my CC Libraries.
