Default InDesign paragraph styles

Hi!

Is there a way to copy a single paragraph style from one InDesign CS (Mac OSX) document to another? The Help suggests that you can only copy all styles.

Best wishes, Adrian

The help is right Adrian. I believe that this wish has been implemented in CS2 though. Time to upgrade?

Draw a frame, yupe some text, apply the style, then copy and paste the frame into the new document.

and yes, cs2 allows you to cherry pick which styles to import.

Apply the style to a paragraph. Select the paragraph by triple-clicking. Copy and paste the paragraph into the new document. The style will then be copied into the new document.
