One Comment on “InDesign How-to Video: How to Switch Paragraph Styles Automatically

  1. A most handy tip. The same technique should work with how I handle inset quotes, with the first having more space before and the last having more space after. It has a similar issue with the middle paragraphs, which have no added space before or after. There’s no ‘next paragraph’ trick to apply a middle quote style to all in between, however many they are.

    I wonder if there’s any way to create scripts that deal with an indeterminate number of repeated paragraph. It’d certainly be handy for speeding up layout.
