Nested Styles

InDesign dramatically reduces the pain of applying two or more character styles in a paragraph when there is some definable structure, such as “apply one style to the first sentence, then a different style to the rest of the paragraph, except use a third style for the final word.”

After creating one or more character styles, you can create this effect by choosing Drop Caps and Nested Styles from the flyout menu in the Paragraph or Control palette. Or, choose the Drop Caps and Nested Styles panel from the Paragraph Style Options dialog box (see Figure 26-5). Click the New Nested Style button and from the Nested Style drop-down menu, choose a character style. Then, choose how much of the paragraph start should be formatted by selecting how many words will be formatted or choose another method for defining the ending point of the character style, such as the first tab character. You can create multiple nested styles and use the arrow at the bottom of the dialog box to select a Nested Style and move it up or down in the list to determine which styles are applied first.
