Chapter 70. Paragraph Rules > Setting Appearance

Setting Appearance

In both programs, you can add a paragraph rule using a dialog box or in a paragraph style. In InDesign, select one or more paragraphs with the Type tool, and then choose Paragraph Rule from the Paragraph palette’s flyout menu (or press Command-Option-J/Ctrl-Alt-J). The Paragraph Rules dialog box appears (see Figure 70-1). Unfortunately, while InDesign allows you to set both a Rule Above and a Rule Below in the same paragraph, you must select one or the other from the popup menu, and you can only look at the settings for one at a time. Be sure to turn on the Preview option, which works similarly to XPress’s Apply button.

Figure 70-1. The Rule Above applied to the heading of this poem is so thick that it makes the heading appear “reversed out.”
