In the indents and spacing setting for the paragraph styles open the alignment drop down and select “away from spine”
It's do-able, but right off-hand I can't think how to deal with the grey bars and the text in them flipping from one side to the other.
On how to handle the citation text, I'd experiment with anchored text boxes, and set the positioning relative to the spine. That would flip it when it moves onto a facing page. It'd be a pain in the patoot to set up for a 300 page document, but probably no worse than having to flip those manually every time you have a text re-flow.
Bob, You're brilliant. I'm a dunce. I set up the paragraph style and it certainly works just like you said (why didn't I see that in the drop down menu?)
Now my problem is that all the "citation" paragraphs have to line up with the "primary" paragraph that they cite. All this spacing has already been done (using a combination of hard returns and "space after" for fine adjustments.) When I apply the "Away From Spine" style the hard returns remain but all the "Space After" settings are dumped and the whole alignment is thrown off for the whole book. So -- is there a way of applying this style without losing any of the current overrides (namely the Space After settings)? Kirk
Yo Bob, I've anwered my own question. I'm so lame. There is an alignment option right in the paragraph panel that changes the alignment to "away from spine" and does not drop any of the "space after" overrides. I'm stoked !!!
Thanks again. You're my hero (well, for today at least). Cheers, Kirk
Chronology of Babylon 5. . .
It's been a long time. It is amazing how the narrative threads were woven throughout the series.
Thanks for the memory!
