Join Chad Chelius for an in-depth discussion in this video Add text styles to a CC Library, part of Learning the Adobe Creative Cloud (2018).
- [Instructor] Text styles provide a way…to store the appearance of text in a Creative Cloud Library…that can be reused in other projects…and other applications as well.…Let's take a look at the options you have…and how to add text styles to a Creative Cloud Library.…Now, I'm starting here in the LM_magazine_styles document…within InDesign, and I like to add my styles in InDesign…because of all the programs,…InDesign has the most style attributes of all of them.…
Illustrator probably second place, and then on from there.…But, for example, the span feature in InDesign…literally doesn't exist in any of the other applications.…It's important for you to understand…that the other applications when you reuse these styles…are going to use the most common denominator…to control what attributes are applied…to the text in those other programs.…So, by creating the style in InDesign,…I'm kinda grabbing the maximum amount of attributes.…
And then when I reuse them,…they'll use the appropriate attributes from there.…So, I'm gonna start here.…
