How To Use A Next Style In Adobe InDesign CC

Hi there in this video, we are going to learn what the next style does. I'll show you what it does and then we'll look how to make it. So I got this list. It's repeating the name, the color, the price and the description and that goes on and on. Imagine if I could just kind of like click on this one and say I'd like you to apply heading but then spill through all of these other ones. And do it repeatedly look at that really useful things like catalogs or anything that has repeating data. Let's look at how to make the next style in in design. Alright, so to create the next style, I've created a new US letter. Okay. Any old document will do, we're going to grab the type tool drawer, type box. I'm doing about half the screen. For no real good reason. We're going to play some ticks. We're going to go to file. I'm going to go to place and we're going to bring in the product sheet. Okay, So the product sheet is a kind of repeating bit of information. There's the product name, there's this co...

lor, its price and its description. So this only works when it is this kind of repetitive nous. Now, if your description has two paragraphs in it. Okay. Say this in a return and another paragraph. Okay. And this one only has one and this one has three. It's not gonna work. So this really has to be a defined list. Okay. Of really kind of regular paragraph breaks often. It's really good if you get out of the database or Excel sheet or sc SV something like that. So the way this works is we need to create three styles. So I'll do it by selecting this first one and go you are going to be bigger. He's in my shortcut command shift period. Okay, the big picture color white is just gonna be made the same color, but bold, the price is going to be made a bit bigger and the description is going to be made a bit smaller so whatever you do, Okay, it doesn't really matter. I've got three of these actually what I'd like to do is have that to have a bit of a paragraph break. Have a command option seven. We'll switch you over to paragraph and I'm going to have space after I said paragraph break, I meant the space after. So there there there this one needs a bit more as well and then a big one between that and the next kind of name. You can see repeats, repeats, repeats. So I'm gonna turn these into styles by going to window styles and going to paragraph styles. Okay, if you ask to get going to that, you can actually just use this one up here. You might not be able to see it depends on how big your screen is. This is a 15 inch Macbook, so I can see a reasonable amount. If you're on a smaller one, maybe a Macbook or a 13 inch Macbook Pro, You might not be able to see this one here. I can just go to here and go to new paragraph style. Alright, I'm gonna call this one heading. I'm gonna put one at the beginning here. You don't have to this just will make it easier for you to follow my heading. It's based on nothing. Okay, same with this one here, I'm gonna say new paragraph style and this one's going to be called to, This one is going to be called colour. It's about that way based on nothing price. You see what we're gonna do here. Okay, same. Same. Same. And then the last one is going to be the description. Four description. Great. Okay, so I've got four paragraph styles. What I'd like for them to do is kind of repeat. That's what the next style is for. Okay, after the style, the next one is going to be this and then this is the way to make them work. Is I'm going to click off so I got nothing selected. Open up my paragraph styles. You can do it from that little drop down. Let's find it a little easier from here, at least to show you. Let's just drag them so they're heading is at the top, then color then price. This doesn't have to happen as well. Just makes it a little easier for me to explain. So what I'd like to do. Nothing selected. Open up, hitting all we do under general is say hitting. I want the next style to be color. Okay. Okay. Double click color. I'd like the next style after that to be the price. That's why number them 1234. Make it easy. Okay. And after price I would like it to go to the description And then this is the Magic 1 to get it to repeat. Okay so when it gets the description, I want to go to the next style which is back to the heading so it loops around now to make this work okay Or to apply it. It's a bit weird and you select on the text box. I'm going to write like hitting and I'm going to say apply hitting one to this whole box but then apply the next style. Watch this. Hey ho Magico goes through and applies the style and then the next style and the next style. Okay so that is the next style. It kind of continues to work. Okay so you can apply it like I did there. Okay there's a few extra options here. But watch this if I'm here and I'm working. I want to add another one. I hit return. I start putting in my next one which is going to be the made up name called a no joe silk. I made up these names at the top here trying to be all Swedish with my finisher names. Return. I'm gonna put in the color of blue. Put it in return. I'm gonna put in the price. Okay? And you can see I've run out of space. But as I go along, okay, it's going to apply that next style every time because of that little next style thing we did in there. Next one is dead description. Cool. So hopefully find a good use for a next style. Great for catalogs or kind of things that are pulled out of databases or terribly named furniture. All right, that's it for next styles.
