    Mixed style running header

    akribie Level 2

      Hi,

       

      Setting my first book using ID CS6 Win.

       

      Main titles start with chapter number followed by title words, but the publisher doesn't want the chapter numbers in running headers. So I have set up a blank character style to pick up just the remaining words into the running header using a text variable, which works just fine.

       

      However, some chapter titles include a variable number of italicised words in variable positions within the title. eg THIS TITLE CONTAINS ITALICS or THIS TITLE CONTAINS ITALICS.

       

      If I apply the italic character style to the title words, italicised words and the rest of the title do not appear in the running header because the text variable only picks up the blank character style on first use.

       

      What's the best way to retain the italics segment of the title in the running header?

       

      Thanks for any help.
