I just imported a Word file into Frame.

I want to tell Frame to do the following:
Take every paragraph in the document with this override--*body--and apply a certain paragraph format (which, BTW, is called Body) that already exists in Frame's Paragraph Catalog.

I've used the CusSpan Plug-Ins before with a fair bit of success:

And if you're importing tables from Word into Frame, you may very well be happy to discover Table Cleaner, from Carmen Publishing:

I've also used the paragraph tools from Silicon Prairie Software,, with mixed success. But at times it's done exactly what I wished for for the very low price of $10.

Hope these tools help,
