Default Hidden style applied over already-hidden text.

I am using templates and styles to organize a large number of documents to be easily switched from one standard to another. In every document, there are two title lines that each have their own styles (title 1 and title 2). I also have two different character styles (A and B) that are applied to either of two different ways of representing section numbers. Those numbers are within the text of titles 1 and 2.



All templates have either style A or style B set with font hidden, so that only one way of representing the section number is in the document.

However, I also need to set some of the templates to hide the Title 1 and/or Title 2 styles, as those headings are not used in those templates. But when I try to do this, the fact that there is already hidden text in that line seems to mess everything up-- the hidden text of A or B reappears and also pulls the text from the following line to its line, thus messing up the rest of my numbered document.

Does anyone know what my problem could be?

Default Double styling

I'll hope others may chime in on this one, but it looks to me as if you are doing the same thing that we refer to in language as a double negative, which negates the negative. In Word, if a Style already has Bold formatting and one then applies Bold to it, the Bold disappears.

In your case, I suspect that you would have to either have a clever macro to apply, or replace your hidden number formatting with another means of accomplishing the same end.

Best, Ulodesk
