Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Formatting type, part of Learning InDesign (2011).
In this exercise, I am going to show you how to apply what are known as…character-level formatting attributes to your text inside InDesign.…Now by character-level formatting attributes I mean such things as typeface and…style and size and anything that you can apply to just the selected letters of…text inside of a document.…So we're going to start things off by selecting the text, but before I do, I…want you to notice one of the key players in InDesign's interface, and that's…the Control panel up here at the top of the screen, this horizontal strip of…options, and these options are context sensitive.…
So in other words, InDesign is presenting you with the most important controls…you need for whatever task you're doing.…So if I were to go ahead and click on the text block using my Selection tool,…then I'll see some positioning options, some scaling options, and so forth that…are applicable to this text block object.…However, if I were to select the text, I would switch to a completely…different set of options.…
