Ok! My sample will work because there's a grep style inserted to manage the blank lines: You need to keep them!
That makes no sense, I am trying to import text from a website not from another indesign document
When you select all the text, is "[Basic Paragraph]" underlined in the Paragraph Styles panel?
No Body is!! This is my standard format. GREP is only used for characters, not paragraphs
You have same "5 paras" sequences!
You only need to modify the 5 paras styles as here:
Paste your "text" in a single (no thread) text block:
… and go to the paras styles panel on "aaa" para style (no selection) (contextual menu):
To finish: copy the text and paste in your layout!
About the blank line, as I said, I've used a grep style to control the space before!
"0" is a char style where I've decided to have a 0pt leading!
OK, I can do day by day with this and saves a lot of time. Just experimented and now can be done in 20 minutes rather than 2 hours.
Aha! You mean 15 seconds!
Sadly no, its not a perfect science. Date only appears once per day of events, Not all events have descriptions etc, so will still have to go through day by day but better than line by line
Mark, I don't agree!
When I take a look to your text, I see "patterns" that can help you to play easily and quickly the game! not in 15 seconds but 1!
"Monday" means a date
"Blank line" means that the following para can be styled with …
You'll only need (imho, simple) cool regex!
