I need to find a fast way of styling type with varying character baseline heights? I want to give the impression of jiggly type with each character having a different baseline shift. Any suggestions on a script that might help me?
each character of the sentence will have a different baseline shift value.
the baseline shifts are a repeating sequence of the following values:
2, -1, 1, 2,3,-1, 0,-2,-1,0
Is there a script I could use or modify to help me with this?
At present I have to modify each individual character which is very time consuming
I seriously doubt there's already a script to do this, but it is fairly easy to write. How would the script know which text to work on? Selection? Particular paragraph style (in which case you don't need a script, just a bunch of character styles and some nested styles defined as part of the paragraph style). All the paragraphs in the parent story of the selection?
Dave, thanks for your response, i think the tpye needing styling would be selected first.
The type needed to be styled is a single paragraph at the most.
So you think a bunch of individual character styles grouped into a nested style as part of a paragraph style could work?
I shall investigate nested styles
Thanks for your help and suggestions much appreciated
