      I’m loving the functionality of this incredible script (although to be fair, it is such a robust script that it feels more appropriate to call it an InDesign “extension”.

      Here’s my question: can WordDrop settings be integrated as an element within a Paragraph Style, or does applying DropWord to a paragraph always create a “local override”?

      Thanks and keep up the incredible work,

        Hi Daniel,

        Thanks for your kind words, and glad you’re finding it useful!

        DropWord III adjusts the position of the first tab-stop in the paragraph to be flush with the beginning of the second word on the first line – in order to create the “window.”
        The position of tab stops is part of a paragraph style. So if a tab stop is moved manually (or by a script), it becomes a style override (marked by a + next to the style name).
        So, unfortunately, there is no way to avoid the fact that paragraphs that have a dropword show up in InDesign as having a “local override.”
