Lesson 5. Working with Typography > Applying special font features

Applying special font features

You can add creative touches to your document using the special InDesign font features. For example, you can make the first character or word in a paragraph a drop cap, or apply a gradient or color fill to text. Other features include superscript and subscript characters, along with ligatures and old-style numerals for font families with these features.

Applying a gradient to text

InDesign makes it easy to apply gradients to the fill and stroke of text characters. You can apply gradients to an entire text frame or to different character ranges within a frame. Here you’ll apply a gradient to the pull-quote on page 1. You’ll use a gradient swatch that was previously created and added to the Swatches palette.
