The Secret Power Of Keep Options In Adobe InDesign CC

Hey there in this video, we're going to look at keep options and in design. Now keep options are a magical potion that does things like this. If I've got this heading. Now, I'm going to apply this paragraph style that I've made with a keep option that says whenever this is applied, you be on the next column please. It's super handy to get some paragraph styles to start on the next page, maybe chapter headings. And in our case it's a subheading so it makes sure it jumps to the next column. We can also use it to make sure that the heading is always connected to the first paragraph and not broken across pages or columns. There's lots of things we can do with keep options. Let's go and look at those. Now in design. Okay, So the first thing we need to do is we need to create a paragraph style because that's where the keep options are created and made and held. So what I'm gonna do is just after this first paragraph here, I'm going to create a subheading cord called cube storage. Ok? And I'm...

going to make it a subheading paragraph style. So I'm just gonna make it bold. I'm gonna make it a chunk bigger and I'm going to make it my MF green and now I'm going to turn it into a paragraph style, it's a new paragraph style, Double click paragraph style one. This one's gonna be called MF submitting. Okay. And I don't want it to be based on another paragraph. Styles wanted you to be based on nothing and have all the styles in for you there. Ok, so we've created a paragraph style. Okay. And we applied it to this. Now, what I'd like to do is prevent things like this. So whenever I'm doing my notes, like longer notes and kind of add text up here on another page or up here in this other paragraph. So I'm gonna add some text and copy and paste this. I paste it and paste it and paste it and paste it and you start to see like I get end up with this title that's kind of by himself. He should be over there with the first paragraph. He shouldn't be just hanging here by himself. I want him to automatically when he gets close to the bottom there. Okay, wherever the paragraph goes on to the next line and delete some stuff. Okay. I want him to kind of jump across and be on the next line there. It might be easier just to show you. So I'm going to click off, have nothing selected with my black arrow. I'm going to double click subheading and then here I'm going to go down to the keep options. Where are you where you are? So I want to keep it with how many lines? Probably. What would look nice like if it's a really long paragraph. Maybe I wanted to maybe just 123. So maybe about four lines. I'm happy if it's back over on this one if there's four lines or more but not if there's not I wanted just to kind of jump across maybe three lines might be better. Okay, because I could be happy with cube storage being over on this column. If there was the hitting plus three lines. Actually, I wouldn't say I wanted just to push to the top of the next column, it's a lot easier for people to read and find titles if they're at the top of the column. So let's see how it works. Let's click. Ok. So if there is three lines, if I delete a couple of lines here, it will move back but if it doesn't it'll jump to the next one. So it's just a nice way of kind of encouraging these guys to be in a nice space. Okay, be on their own page if they need to be. Okay, another option to use keep options is I'm gonna have nothing selected. I'm going to turn off the key thing that we just did. So I'm gonna say you can be on its own line so back to zero click OK, So now it's not doing that thing we're doing previously, but what it's going to do now let's say that I have a really long subheading, so keep storage is really handy way to store. Okay, whatever it is. So it's a really long subheading and watch this if I add some text up here copy and paste if I get close to the bottom there, you'll notice that breaks across two lines. Okay? So that paragraph style allows this to break across lines and it's a heading and we're like, no way we want that to happen. So what we can do is nothing selected. Open up subheading and we'll use keep options in a slightly different way. We're gonna say keep lines together all lines in that paragraph. So it just means that this particular style we're going to say keep that paragraph altogether. So, if it gets to the bottom of a column or a page, jump across to the next one. Alright, let's click. Ok. Let's say I'm going to undo that to go back to what it was before. Let's say we've got a different situation. So another use for keep instead of doing the keep options where it expands a column, we keep it together. Like we just did we want actually to say every time there's a subheading, I wanted to go to a new column regardless of where it is or a new page. Okay. Say it's a chapter heading. Okay, Rather than the subheading. We want to say whenever this appears, go to its own page or in our case, I wanted to go to the next column. It doesn't really matter where it is. Just go to the next column when you apply it. Okay, So let's have nothing selected again. And just that paragraph style And under keep options, we're going to use these options to say start this paragraph anywhere. No, no, no. I want to start on the next column or the next page. Okay. So I want to say you definitely have to start in the next column. I could say next page if I wanted to push this to another page. Okay. To go to the next page. So it can be really useful for those kind of large headings, like chapter headings where you say, actually, I just wanted to be on its own column regardless of where it is in the paragraph. So that's it. To keep options really handy, especially when you're dealing with like little headings in the flow of text like we've got here just to make sure they break and keep together where they should alright onto the next video.
