So, I need every other line of text to be formatted differently.
For example: Line 1 - with character style 1, line 2 with character style 2, line 3 - again with char style 1 and so on
I tried few nested styles setups, and all I could manage to do is to make 2 first lines change, since all my text lines ends with € sign, so I put that as a point for change. However, I need all text to be like that ...
I also found a Dave Cross-es tutorial for making this, but WHILE TYPING. I can not find link for it now, but basically, he used 2 paragraph styles and pointed both to other one in "next style" tab. And, it works, but not on imported text (don't know why? - I even tried putting hard breaks at end of lines, thinking it will simulate typing to Indesign )
So, does anyone know how or can this be done in inDesign? I'll be FOREVER grateful! (I did have a need for it in the past several times)
Should work with nested Line Styles.
What version of ID are you using?
Well, first of all - thanx for the reply, and - sorry for late reply on my side, got lot to work on, and it is holiday season here ...
Anyway, I manage to make it work with nested styles, but due to a lucky fact that I did use that € sign after all (lucky being - it was a menu and it had € sign at the ends)
My mistake when I tried this first time was - i never styled second line ...
So, correct setup was -
styleA through 1 € sign
styleB through 1 € sign
So, that was it ...
P.S. Couldn't make it work in nested line styles, because I did have soft break between lines of same type of meal, and hard break on other lines - - - restaurant menu items
