Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Styles housekeeping, part of InDesign: Advanced Styles.
- [Instructor] Throughout the course of a project,…especially a large project,…your styles panel can get untidy.…It's a good idea to periodically do some housekeeping.…Firstly, to purge any unwanted styles,…come to your paragraph styles panel,…choose select all unused,…and then delete.…You can do the same thing on the character styles panel…and the objects style panel.…This is most necessary at the end of a project…before the final is archived…or is repurposed as the template for a similar project.…
Secondly, you can arrange your styles into groups.…As well as keeping like styles together,…this gives you more space to work with…on the paragraphs styles panel.…Making sure I have nothing selected,…I'm going to select theses three body styles,…and I will right click on any one of them,…and choose new group from styles.…Now I'm going to name the group.…Because style naming is case sensitive,…I can name that with a capital b,…and it's not going to conflict with the…lower case b that I have for this style name itself.…
