I'm working on a document that a client has made some tweaks to. We're trying to figure out if there's a way to create a paragraph style to accomplish this layout.
Basically we have a bulleted list, separated by a paragraph rule below, that is followed with another list. These are feature points on some product packaging. This was originally set up with only the paragraph rule below - so there was a soft return between the items. Now that they've made it into a list, a hard return is required to invoke the bullet - which in turn invokes the paragraph rule below.
I've attached a screenshot of the completed layout that we're trying to get to. I know we can do it with two individual paragraph styles, but we have a very large number of files to edit that use the existing style without the bulleted list - if there was a way to get everything into one style, we can just import/replace the existing style in the other INDD documents without too much hand time involved. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
If it is always exactly two bullets between the lines, you could set up the two styles, with each being set at Next Style for the other. Then select the whole list and choose Apply Style, then Next Style from the paragraph pallet flyout menu.
Unfortunately, it will be between 1 - 3 bullets. But that might be a great way to approach it if we end up stacking styles. I hadn't considered "next style" as an option. Thanks!
