|0003768: Use existing style-name when frame is copied, not "copy-of-stylename"
|When copying a text frame: Today,sometimes, a style "Copy of frame-text-style" is created.
I suggest use existing stylename, and if none with same name exists then copy paragraph style using original name.
|No tags attached.
|cannot confirm here, can you give me the exact steps that lead to the creation of "Copy of frame-text-style"? You could upload a test file with such a frame/style too.
|I suppose pingu is talking about copying a frame from one document to another, and he's right. Perhaps "name-of-style1" would be better.
It always happens when copying from one document to another, when the same stylename exists in both documents but are not identical.
Maybe the best solution here would be a dialog asking what you want to do:
"Styles are not identical. Give new name or style to use instead."
or something like that.
However, it happens some other times too although I can't trigger it now. I just see in a document there are "Copy of somestyle" where somestyle is used only once. Here I defined it in one doc and copied the frame to another doc where the specific stylename was not in use. Maybe I deleted/copied the frame several times, I don't really know? But I do know the style is used _only_ once - it's specific to this ad.
