Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a style based on another, part of InDesign CS3 Long Documents.
Some things to consider when creating your styles and what I'm going to cover in this movie may not be news to many of you,…if you have already watched the InDesign Essentials title or the Beyond the Basics title or my Typography title.…But I think it bears repeating at this point, as it's a very useful foundation for creating your styles.…Firstly, and a point I made in the opening Overview movie, if you have already got the styles created,…you don't need to recreate them again. You can load them from another InDesign document.…
If you choose Load Paragraph Styles, you are just going to load those.…Load All Text Styles will load your paragraph and character styles.…You will find this same menu item obviously relevant to the actual style that it is referring to,…for object styles and for table and cell styles as well.…So if I were to choose that and then choose a document that contains the styles that I want,…Open, I can either cherry pick specific styles or I can take the whole lot, click OK and they will all be added…
