My author has used two deviced to mark new sections/passage of time. (He is aware that he has done this and will find a way to justify this, when asked.) One is the one-line space, the other is the dincus. My problem is this:
When a one line space comes at the top of a page, I cannot resort to using a dincus to show the new section is starting. Naturally, I want to avoid an empty line at the top of the new page. When I start a new section I am removing first line indent (as is usual to do) - so there is a sublte indication that a new section is starting but only if you are a type-setter, I fear. Is there another good way to deal with this visual lack of new section ?
The lack of indent at these points also creates an oddity in itself. All speech is indented consistently throught the book. But when a new section starts with a single line of speech, it looks weird to not have it indented, where all following lines are indented. Any ideas on this, please?
Thank-you Mike. I should have made it clear that my question was not an inDesign technical one, but a type-setting style one. Perhaps this is not the best place to ask, but I thought there might be people who have insight into this,
