Chapter 44. Character Formatting > Basic Character Formatting

Basic Character Formatting

It’s worth mentioning that character formatting can be applied locally to selected text or text frames—which is what we’re talking about here—or it can be applied using character styles (see Chapter 55). We’ll start by considering the text attributes you change the most: typeface, font size, and leading.

Typeface

QuarkXPress lets you set the typeface with the Measurements palette, the Style menu, and the Character Attributes dialog box. InDesign uses the Character palette (see Figure 44-1) and the Type menu (see Chapter 43). As we mention in the previous chapter, InDesign creates its own hierarchical font menus based on font family, so the order of your fonts in the list may be different than you expect.
