Join Chad Chelius for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding InDesign styles, part of Creating Accessible PDFs (2014).
…InDesign provides some incredibly powerful styles that allow you…to consistently format text in any way that you wish.…From an accessibility standpoint, styles are the hooks, if you will, that allow…us to associate text in an InDesign document to a specific PDF tag.…Let's briefly look at how to create and apply styles in InDesign.…I'm beginning this video with the styles.indd file already open on…my computer, and you can see that we have a tri-fold brochure.…
And what we're going to do is we're…going to jump over to the second spread here.…And we're going to focus, I'll just zoom in.…On the upper left corner here, because we want to focus on this area of…text because all the other areas, as you can see, have a style applied.…You can actually see that up here.…But what we can do to make this easier is we can…go to the Window menu, go to Styles, and choose Paragraph Styles.…And I'm just going to dock this over here,…because we're going to be using it quite a bit.…
