Chapter 15. Text and Object Styles > Using Nested Styles

Using Nested Styles

Every once in a while I see a feature that is revolutionary in the field of desktop publishing. Nested styles are such a feature. Nested styles allow you to automate how character styles are applied to paragraphs.

Imagine you are formatting a phone directory. Each paragraph starts with a person’s name followed by a colon. After that comes a phone number, and then a new line symbol forces the rest of the address to the end of the paragraph. These are repeating elements that you can reliably count on to use as markers for formatting using nested styles.
