Advanced Styles: Nested, Line, and GREP Styles

Wednesday, 1:15 pm – 2:15 pm

Everyone knows that using styles in InDesign is key for efficient formatting of text and objects in a document. Not only do they save time and allow us to format content quickly and efficiently, but they also facilitate easily making changes in a document as well. Let’s not forget that they’re also a requirement if you want to take advantage of some powerful features in InDesign that help you to automate tasks. With styles however, there’s a lot more beneath the surface that can help you take your text formatting to the next level by automating specific formatting within a paragraph.

In this session, you’ll learn how to…

  • Specifically format every instance of a word or phrase in a document
  • Leveraging Nested Styles to apply text formatting
  • Isolate and format text using GREP Styles
  • Understand the order of operation when using automated and manually applied styles
  • Thinking creatively with styles
