Okay, I am SURE the subject of my question is difficult to understand, so I will try to explain a little better below
I am working on a catalog where the bullet points for items are all 'inline' and not each on their own line.
Here is an example below:
• bullet point one • bullet point two • bullet point three • bullet point four
• bullet point five • bullet point six • bullet point seven • bullet point eight
Now, once the item info is placed, the bullet points usually ends up running over several lines because some fo them can be rather long. Now, next to each of the sets of bullet points an image is placed with a text wrap (on the left side of the image only), so that the right side of the set of bullet points wraps to the image. What is happening in a lot of instances tho' is that the bullet point itself falls at the end of a line, and I want to know if there is anything I can do to prevent this from happening and have it rather carry over to the next line. Perhaps there is no way to do this, but I am SO hoping there is. What is so great about InDesign is that I have so far been able to (almost) make it do anything I need it to do:)
So here is an example of what I wish to prevent from happening:
• bullet point one • bullet point two •
bullet point three • bullet point four •
bullet point five • bullet point six •
bullet point seven • bullet point eight
so that it rather looks like this:
• bullet point one • bullet point two
• bullet point three • bullet point four
• bullet point five • bullet point six
• bullet point seven • bullet point eight
SO HOPING that someone can come up with an easy solution:)
Thank you in advance for your help,
Are you typing in the bullets? The simple solution is to use a non-breaking space after each bullet.
The more complex method is to use a GREP style to make the space non-breaking.
If you give us more details about how the text has been entered we can give better advice.
Peter, thank you SO much...you actually answered my question and a big "DUH" just hit me like a hammer The text is simply being pasted in from a spreadsheet and I am manually adding bullet points using OPTION-8 kb shortcut (on a mac). Doing bullets the regular way (via the "Bullets and Numbering" accessible from the Paragraph panel) will not work in this case since they are inline.
All I had to do was insert a non-breaking space instead of a regular space after each bullet. I am able to do this very quickly tho' because I am pasting in the bullets along with the non-breaking space. Thank you SO MUCH:)
