Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Applying styles and establishing hierarchy, part of Designing a Restaurant Menu.
Now at present, all of our text is just slapped onto our page, and it is very…difficult for us to tell what's what, so we need to establish some sort of…hierarchy and order with our text.…And this will be done using paragraph styles, and also some character styles.…But first and foremost, paragraph styles, which apply formats to our text on a…paragraph by paragraph basis, so they are the more global of the two.…And I like to always start by working with the text that occupies the vast…majority of my document, be it a book, be it a brochure, be it a poster, or in this case, a menu,…and that is going to be my body text. So my body text is going to be each of…the menu items, and that's where I am going to start.…
So I'm going to actually set this to Regular, as opposed to Medium Helvetica, and then I…am going to change the typeface to 10 point in size, and I am going to increase…the leading to 13 point.…Let's consider some of these other options.…I am going to change the language dictionary to UK.…
