Looks simple, I agree, but it's not.
A script will be needed (I think -- I have been known to underestimate the lists feature, but I don't think two different lists can increment in the same paragraph). I don't think one has been floated here before.
1. a. yada yada yada
2. a. insert text here.
b. insert more text here.
there is solution:
you need to prepare 3 ParagraphStyles:
1) for numbers - level 1
2) for "a" with leading = 0 - it will go up and cover "numbers" - level 2
3) for "b", "c" ... letters - level 2
paragraphs with "numbers" - need to be empty
Did anyone ever find a solution to this? I'm trying to do the EXACT same thing, except my bullets are the same character. I need to be able to apply different paragraph styles to the Level 1 and to the level 2, and I need to do this in a script. Any suggestions?
I currently have a script that dumps the text into the text frame, but I need to know how to apply nested paragraph styles in a script... hopefully something I can add to my existing script (pasted below)
filename = "/c/testfile.txt";
myFileObj = new File(filename);
theText = myFileObj.read();
app.selection.contents = theText;
alert ("Unable to open file "+filename);
