which platform - PC or MAC ?
and how script will know where and how big space to add ?
can you show example of what you need to get ? because maybe you can use VerticalJustification as TextFrame property or you can play with BaselineGrid or ...
Thanks for your answer. I am working with a Mac. Let me give you an example:
bla bla bla nlalkj lka js kd jalk jk l.
bljah lalk djlkaj dlka jdklajd lkajdlaj
kasjdlkaj sdljalsdklak djlakj lk alsdkj
bla bla ökla ölkölak lkölkaö lkölkaölkg
lk j lkjlk lkj lkj lkj ljeklfsdflkj ff
kj kjkfjg kgj kj
klj lkjlkl kl kl
i oi kjjj k kj
As far as I can see, VerticalJustification adds equal spacing between all paragraphs on a certain page. Let us say I want to alter only the space before those lines saying "Text 5", "Text 6", etc.
Is that possible? I also don_t know where the script should find the info. The publisher I mentioned before is still laying out books with an MSDOS programm (!) that reads paragraph definitions from an external file. Those definitions have, for example, space values set like this:
space above = 3 mm plus 2 mm
space below = 3 mm
where plus 2 mm would be the maximal value.
That DOS dinosaur lays out a chapter with 150 pages in half a minute, with leveled pages and without widows. Can Indesign CS4 do something similar?
You might want to take a look at this plugin:
It will automatically justify your frames for you by adding space
proportionately in between paragraphs.
For example, if you have three paragraphs one calls for 3pts. before and
the others for none. It will only add space to the paragraph that calls
for 3pts before to justify the frame.
Looks almost exactly like what I've been looking for. Big thanks!
