- An illustration (AI file) is placed (linked) in Indesign
- Using right click > Layer options, I can control visibility of layers (good!)
- Using the same options can I also change/control the style? e.g. I want the line thickness to be thicker?
- Using the same illustration on another page, I want to zoom in the illustration (by scaling content) keeping the line thickness same (or near about visually), but the line thickens due to scaling. Can I control this?
- If I could, what I mean in the above example is, very important, is to have different thickness of a line of the same illustration (AI file) on different pages!!
Is THERE a way to do this in InDesign CS6?
PS: If there is any Autocad user here, they will know this is easily and since decades done in Autocad. Different scales of the same drawing print in same line thickness. or whatever one desides for each viewport.
What you want cannot be done in ID.
I wish so much you were not right!
But I thank you for your quick reply.
I will await for a while before someone can offer some workaround for this (may be there is some plugin?)
Use styles inside Illustrator and open the linked file from InDesign to change these styles.
I have learned to set up a template in the size of the layout area of the book where the images are inserted to have a comparative sense how sizes will be compared to the final size. I set up some styles for objects and fonts and use them in all files for that book.
