How To Create Nested Styles In Adobe InDesign CC

Hi there in this video, we're going to look at how to create a nested style. And what it's gonna do is I'm going to click in this paragraph anywhere and I'm going to apply the style that I've created for feature and magically it's going to also apply a character style to all the words right up into this colon. Super useful for a numbered list or in our case, this featured list. Let's go and learn how to do that now in in design. Okay, so for this to work, let's open up a file that I've got made for us. It's an 06 styles. Open up nested styles, click open Open up your paragraph Styles panel. Okay, It's under window styles, paragraph styles. Now a nested style. Remember is a way to connect paragraph styles and character styles together automatically. So you need both of them to exist first. So first of all, we're gonna work on this features list. And what you'll notice about it is that built to last? And there's a colon saying with timeless. So I would like a style that automatically mad...

e this kind of bold and green. So we need two things. We need a paragraph style. So I'm gonna select all of this. Okay, And I'm going to say, let's make a new paragraph style, even though there was a body copy one, they have to be separate. Double click paragraph style one. And this one is going to be my feature Feature Style based on I like to just go back to no paragraph style click OK, it's up to you that doesn't really matter. That's just my personal preference. So we've got a paragraph style. Now we're going to create a character style. So I got nothing selected. Okay, go to character styles. I'm going to create a new one. Double click it. This is going to be my feature character style. I should have called the other one paragraph style. And we're gonna get a basic character formats. And all I wanted to do is to make it bold and I'd like it to make the character color owl. Actually, I don't have that green in this one. Different document. It's okay, I'm gonna make mine the awful green just to prove a point. So click. Ok, So nothing really happens. Right? I've got a paragraph style over here called Feature style. And then I've got a character style that that just as bold and ugly green Now is where we connect them up. So nothing selected. Go to paragraph styles. Double click. Feature style and the nested style connects them in here. It's under drop caps and nested styles. So they get connected through the paragraph style and we say nested styles, let's new nested style, click there where it says none. I want this nested style to apply the feature character style that we made. That's the bold and ugly green. And now if I kind of click around, you'll see previews on and at the moment it's doing it by automatically through one word. So it's just going to the first word applying the green and bold. Okay, so that might work for you. You might just have the first word and you need to make it that green and bold. So just apply the paragraph style and that will work. What I'd like to do is I'd like to go actually just so you know, you can go up to two words. Okay click out, you'll see it goes to words up to you. But I would like to go through one and instead of words, okay, you can go through here and look at the different options. You might have a tab that you wanted to break across. It might be a certain mental letters or digits. You go through the first three digits. Might have an em space or an in space. I am going to actually just delete the word words. Okay, and actually use my own character and put in a colon. Okay, because that matches their click off. So what it's going to do now is it's going to apply that character style through to the Colin. This becomes really nice when I'm doing something else. So greatful design click on this one here and I'm going to say I want you to be a feature style. Huh? It's broken. Okay because it's looking for that colon. It can't find it. I'm gonna put in the colon here. Awesome. So that's a nested style and it's just a way to automatically connect paragraph styles and character styles, and in particular, it uses the beginning of the paragraph as its starting point. Now, I want you to on your own to create a new paragraph style. Okay for this group and instead of using the character for Colin to stop it, I want you to change it and go and use this open bracket. The only difference will be there was an option that said through too. You're going to say up to because you wanted to stop before it gets here. Alright, So that's how to create a nested style in in design.
