Hey,

I'm trying to export an XML file from Indsign, but I'm only getting this information when I create the XML-file. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>

 

How do I tag the document fonts so I get: font size, color style, placement and so on?

I am not sure XML supports design info. In the past I used xlst file to format data imported.

but that was a few years ago. Transforming XML with XSLT | Real World Adobe InDesign CS4: XML | Peachpit

Before you export XML from Indesign, the document needs to be tagged. Window > Utilities > Tags brings up the Tag panel, where you can create tags. Then you need to select content within document, text frames, text, ext. and apply the tag. Keep in mind that tags only defines an element within the document, it does not include style information like font, color, etc.
