Not with a paragraph style, but you could use Find and Replace to add an Indent to Here marker after the colon and the space.
That would allow all of your paragraphs to retain the same style, but would move your indent based on the placement of that marker in each item.
No tab stops required.
I think thats a nice solution. I didn't know about that special character. Thanks!
What would be great is if there was a way for a style to automatically insert the "indent to here" character based on where my nested style ends.
Styles can't add or remove text, but the GREP find and change in my previous post should make it fairly painless to insert them.
Yeah. I did a regular find and replace which was also painless. This is really just a specs list that was pulled from a table in a word doc so there probably would only be 1 colon per paragraph anyway.
I know styles cannot insert content but it would be nice if there were advanced controls for when there are variables like this so that things can be more automated which equals less chances of making mistakes.
Either way, you had a good solution that worked like a charm.
You're welcome. I'm glad I could help.
(The reason I did the GREP find/change was in case there were to be an additional colon elsewhere in one of the descriptions. )
