Unexpected changes in font size or other formatting for certain paragraphs

If you notice that some paragraphs in your output are formatting differently than others bearing the same style name, there probably are format overrides affecting those paragraphs. You may have manually changed the style definition for a single paragraph in FrameMaker—perhaps making some text bold without using a "Bold" character style. Another popular override involves the use of change bars. By definition, change bars alter a paragraph's format, and thus count as a format override. If you apply change bars manually to a select group of paragraphs, those paragraphs are reported to ePublisher as having been overridden.

If a paragraph has format overrides, ePublisher ignores the formatting defined in the Style Designer and uses the styling cues set for the paragraph in FrameMaker. So, when you see some of your paragraphs stand out in your output, you likely have applied a format override to those paragraphs, in addition to making changes to the style (or a parent style) in the ePublisher Style Designer.

To resolve the issue, there are a couple of options:
