Learn about nested styles that repeat.
- [Instructor] In this movie, I'll show some uses…for the repeat nested style option.…I'm going to start by recreating this first example.…I'll double-click to insert my cursor into the text,…press Command or Control + 2 to jump to 200%…and then just reposition my page.…I'll come to my Paragraph Styles…and edit the repeat_begin style.…Right-click and choose Edit.…Drop Caps and Nested Styles.…New Nested Style.…
I'll start out with none,…so that the first word has just…the base paragraph style formatting.…New Nested Style a second time.…This time I'm going to choose color,…and this will apply through one word.…That takes care of the first two words.…I now need to add a third nested style,…which will repeat the last two styles.…And there we have our repeating effect.…Now the second example is a bit more complicated.…
So we go from regular to bold to regular to bold,…and this kind of treatment is useful…if you have a bulleted list…and there just isn't room to have each of the items…be their own separate paragraph.…What's making it more complicated…
