That Search in Styles from Id-Extras.com is a good option, thanks for the hint. But I think that´s more complicated than it should be. And not enough.
The interface for the Paragraph Style Options dialog box has to advance for more flexibility. Either you are creating new Styles or changing existing Styles, it eats up so much time.
You have three Styles (in simplified terms, imagine there are more settings)
Headline: Arial + Bold + Size:15pt + Space after: 2 mm
Subline: Based on Headline + Italic + Size:11pt
Text: Based on Subline + Regular + Size:9pt + Space after: 1 mm
You want to change all fontsizes to 10pt. Your options now: Open each style and set it individually. Or Search in Styles from Id-Extras.com I guess.
The option i whish for: Selecting all three styles, opening one Paragraph Style Options dialog box, making one collective change. For the fontsizes I could type in 10pt or since InDesign is able to calculate I could type in -1 to set every fontsize 1pt smaller.
You want to reset your Indents and Spacing settings. Your options now: Open Headline and Text and set Space after to 0mm individually. But what if you need to reset more than just Space after, Indents and Spacing holds ten settings. Resetting them all takes too much time. In our case Tabs always need to be reset and newly defined, takes ages!
The option i whish for: A Reset Button for Indents and Spacing and all other settings/categories.
Speaking of Tabs. Imagine you have four Tabs in your style and you want those Tabs in other styles, too. Your options now: Write them down or remember them, open each style and set it individually.
The option i whish for: A copy function. Or at least a way to skip through the styles without leaving the Paragraph Style Options dialog box. Or maybe 2+ Paragraph Style Options dialog box open at the same time?
I hope this helps to understand. I am happy to explain it further, if you have more questions.
Any way to skip through styles without leaving the Paragraph Style Options dialog box is a win! I thought of a Button to jump to the next/previous style in the list.
