Susan,

Would I be better off to change to the textbook format instead?
Also, what other goodies, landmines?, might I need to be aware of when
using this style?
I obviously need to chase more documentations down on this style...
<grin>

Another interesting thing is that this stuff is being inserted by the
word inputter and not by me.

Thanks and I'll try what you suggest.
 
J. R.

J.R. is using the BANA template, which treats the [lea] differently than
  other DBT templates. When using the BANA template, the runover of the
style is honored after inserting a new page number mid-paragraph ... 
however the number MUST be followed by a space.

Right now, the file has

      I [lea]4[l] still


Use a space after the number

      I [lea]4 still

and everything will be OK. Using [l] within a BANA template style is
similar to using Ctrl-M ... however, instead of creating a new paragraph
with its own set of style codes, it creates a new paragraph WITHIN the
SAME style codes. That's what happened here ... it was just coincidental
that it was after the page number.

Hi J.R.  (And sorry for the attachments being added here, but I'm
copying this to Peter & Joe)

And sorry also  re my earlier message, but I found I needed to look at
this before I slept.  So I could still be wrong in what I believe I have
found.

Unfortunately you didn't attach the Word file, so this is much of a
guess.

Basically,  it appears that there is a Style in the original document
called "B-BodyText".

This is a Custom Style, and not mapped in the MWS file.  So, it gets
brought into DBT - as is - so to speak.

If you change that Style to "para.", you don't get the indent.
Obviously DBT's inner workings recognise the [lea] code within the
"para." Style, and so deal with it as you would expect.

As to a solution, and again without the original file I'm largely
guessing, but could you perhaps
try:-

1)  Mapping "B-BodyText" to "para" in your MWS file, or....

2)  Use SWIFT to do the mapping of Custom Styles for you.

I have to confess that I am a shade worried about Custom Word Styles
coming into DBT in this way.
In some ways it is good, and personally as a, "Styles Man" I really like
it.  However, I suspect it may cause some confusion unless SWIFT is used
properly.

All the best,

George.

George,

Here are the two files attached.
1) a .dxp file with 6 print pages showing the problem.
2) the .brf file after translation.

Let me know what you discover.
Don and I are doing further testing as well and I'll let you know what
we find.

Thanks,
J. R.

Hi J.R.,

Can you provide a small actual example?

What Template is this with?  (I've just tested with the Standard
Literary Template)

FWIW, I do a Ctrl + [, type lea, and press enter.
Then I type the page number followed by a space, and continue with the
text.

Are you by any chance pressing Return after entering the print page
number?

Sorry if I am asking the obvious, but it's tricky to tell what's
happening without seeing an example.

All the best,

George.

I'm running the latest beta release and this problem is causing me major
fits.
Is there a work around for it?

The two spaces are not shown in any of the files except after saving as
a .brf file There is not even a way to edit these out except by editing
the .brf file after translation.
