Inserting custom text: InDesign Secrets

Inserting custom text with paragraph styles

Explore InDesign Secrets at lynda.com.

Did you know you can insert text before any new line with paragraph styles? The trick is to use numbered lists, and sneak the text into the numbering. This is especially useful in situations where you want to label phone numbers (as work, mobile, home, etc.) or any other information that repeats throughout your document. In this episode of InDesign Secrets, David Blatner shows you how to create a style, change the list type, and replace the numbering with the word, phrase, or even symbol you want to insert.
