Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Formatting a four-panel card, part of Designing a Restaurant Menu.
So this is where we left off; we have our text more or less in place, but it…has the formats from the previous version, which are entirely inappropriate for…what we want to do here.…So I am going to go over the basics of how we get from this, to this alternate version.…And I am going to do this in an abbreviated way, because you don't need to see me…doing lots of repetitious steps.…Basically, this is all about changing the style sheet definitions. We have the…paragraph styles already set up; we just need to change their definition.…
I seem to have lost my Paragraph Styles panel, so I am going to come to…Window > Styles > Paragraph Styles.…And I am going to start out by editing the item style.…I am going to change the font from a sans serif to a serif font.…Everything else about that can stay the same.…I want to then change the section styles, and what I want to have happen is this;…if I go to the finished version, turn on my guides, we can see that I've got…a five column grid, and I'm using the first column as white space, and for the section heads.…
