Discover how InDesign object styles work.
- [Instructor] In this movie, we're going to look at yet…another kind of style in the form of object styles.…But just before we do that I want to do something…to the text that I finished off in the previous movie…because I'm not happy with it.…It's not sitting on all the baselines…or filling this side as I'd expected.…So what I'm going to do is double click on it…and that will, first of all, activate the text…and also place a cursor in the paragraph.…And I'll go up to the icon here, the little pilcrow icon…and click on it and this is where I can edit my style…with the style options.…
So if I choose that, I'm going to go straight to indents…and spacing and I'm going to change the Align to Grid…to All Lines and hopefully, even behind the dialogue,…you can see how now that's matching all of those lines.…I'm going to make one other change here…because there's a sort of uncomfortable jump…still in there somewhere and I think…if I change the baseline grid to half its value,…it will overcome that.…So I'll go up to the InDesign menu here…
