Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Appending a paragraph style to an object style, part of InDesign CS3 One-on-One: Style Sheets.
In the previous exercise we created an Object Style based on the left hand list and applied it to the right hand list,…but we left some problems at the bottom, the last four entries, the last four sets of lyrics are styled improperly.…And that's because we neglected to associate a Paragraph Style with our new Object Style.…We are going to resolve that problem in this exercise.…I am working in a catch up document incidentally called Two nice lists.indd that's found inside of the 01_Introduction folder.…I am going to go a click off of my page, in order to deselect everything.…
I could also press Ctrl+Shift+A or Command+Shift+A in the Mac. Just the better way when you are thinking of editing a style,…it's best to have nothing selected as I mentioned earlier.…Now I am going to go to the Object Style palette, which I have open, and I am going to double click…on Violet frame. Notice here this tiny little item over here…in the upper left hand list, it's called Paragraph Styles right there.…Notice that it's neither here nor there. It doesn't have a checkmark, which means it'd be turned on…
