In this video, discover some examples of small details that you should pay attention to.
- [Instructor] Thus far we've been concentrating … on the macro typography. … We've been creating paragraph styles … and applying them where appropriate, … to give structure to our text. … But now we need to turn out attention … to some of the smaller details and here are some examples … of the kind of thing that I'm talking about. … I'm going to zoom in to the bottom of page 46 … and we see that we have a date. … So this brings up the issue of our numeral style. … I would prefer to use proportional old style numerals here, … just 'cause I think that's more in keeping … with the tone of the text and they are going to … integrate better into the upper and lower case. … This is something that I can embed into … the paragraph style itself and since all of … the other paragraph styles are based on body, … I can just edit the body style … and they too will be affected. … So I'll come to my OpenType Features … and what I want to change is the figure style. … Switch this to proportional old style. …
