Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Updating a shared attribute, part of InDesign CS3 One-on-One: Style Sheets.
In this exercise, I am going to show you how to update another shared attribute and by shared attribute,…I mean a formatting attribute that's shared between a group of associated styles.…For example, inside of this document, I am still working inside the Styled TOC.indd file,…albeit slightly updated here based on what we did in the previous exercise.…If you take a look, I've got my Type tool selected.…If you click inside the Description, you'll see that the type size is 12 point.…If I click in inside the Byline, the type size is 12 point.…
If I click inside the word Editorial, the type size is 12 point.…Actually, if I click inside the 18, it says that the type size is 12 point.…Even though, it obviously isn't the size of the other characters, the reason it's saying that the type size is 12 point is…because this is a drop cap and it has some special scaling going on,…it's scaled to the height of three lines of this text right here.…Anyway, I am thinking, whatever the type size, I am thinking…that the word Editorial is too small and I'd like to go ahead and enlarge it.…
