Paragraph & Character Styles

Some help was needed on Paragraph & Character Styles in InDesign for a friend so I thought I’d do a complete video on the subject.

This was using InDesign CS5 but it would still be applicable from CS3 (I don’t recall how well InDesign used Styles in CS1 or CS2) to the current version which is CS6 at the release of this video.

Topics Covered

  • Paragraph Styles
    • Creating Paragraph Styles
    • Applying Paragraph Styles
  • Character Styles
    • Creating Character Styles
  • Nesting Character Styles in Paragraph Styles for Increased Functionality
  • Basing Paragraph Styles on other Paragraph Styles to allow global alterations by editing just a few Key Styles
  • Nesting Character Styles in Paragraph Styles and Basing Paragraph Styles on other Paragraph Styles together
  • Advanced Nesting example
  • Applying Character & Paragraph Styles to your text Quickly & Efficiently
    • Using Shortcuts
    • Using Find/Replace

If you click the image, it’ll show the most appropriate version for your connection.

    You actually make it appear so easy with your presentation however I find this topic to bee actually
    one thing that I feel I would by no means understand.
    It sort of feels too complicated and very vast for me.
    I am looking forward to your subsequent post, I will try to get the
    clingg of it!
