Hello, I'm trying to create a directory. The column on the left is the text that was created using data merge. I want to create some kind of style, in order to deal with changes. I want it to look like the columns on right. Is this possible? Thank you in advance.
If it is truly as consistent as you are showing us, you can do this with nested styles.
Create these 5 styles (fine tuning the formatting):
Then, select the entire story, right click Name in the Styles panel and choose Apply Name, then Next style. It's magical!
Details on the next style attribute here: https://www.rockymountaintraining.com/adobe-indesign-how-to-use-the-next-style-attribute/
Thank you so much, I'll give this a try.
Barb, you haven't accounted for the specialties titles (red, all caps), so while nested styles will work (as long as each listing has the same number of lines), you can't do the whole doc in one go.
Good point. You'd have to do it in sections.
