Applying the sequence Paragraph styles using Next style

Hi guys!

 

I am facing a problem, when using the Next style option in Paragraph style setting. What to do if you wan one Paragraph style in the sequence to be applied to more paragraphs than just one? See this schema please:

 

  • Heading Paragraph style <then Next style>
  • Subhead Paragraph style <then Next style>
  • Bullet Paragraph style <?>
  • Bullet Paragraph style <?>
  • Footer notes Paragraph style

 

I am sure, that the solution will be simple, but I am really lost in this "problem".

 

Thank you in advance!

    It depends on how you set up your next styles.

     

    If Next for Bullet Paragraph is "Same Style": select first 4 lines, apply This, then Next Style. Then select the 5th line and apply the last one.

     

    If Next for Bullet Paragraph is "Footer notes": select first 3 lines, appply This, then Next Style. Then select the 4th and 5th and apply the Bullet Style, then Next Style.

    Using Next Styles whenever possible is "the simple solution". You just can't use it all the time.

    If this is a long document and you really want to save time, you can

    make two identical styles for your bullet paragraph ("bulletPara1" and

    "bulletPara2"). BulletPara1 next style will be BulletPara2, and its next

    style will be "Footer notes".

     

    Also, if you're using a lot of next styles, check out my free script

    that allows you to easily apply next styles. It works like "quick

    apply", but unlike quick apply, respects the next style setting. Much

    easier than all that right-clicking in the paragraph style palette. Look

    under the scripting tab on www.freelancebookdesign.com
