Hi @oolongmi ,

this should only be possible when one of the two Japanese paragraph composers are applied to the text.

From the GUI only available if you use the CJK ( Chinese, Japanese, Korean ) version of InDesign.

With scripting ExtendScript (JavaScript) this can be done in all other versions as well. But the basic thing is, your text must use one of the two Japanese paragraph composers.

You cannot rotate a character in a paragraph, only simulate the italic with an inclination (from -85° to +85°).

Hi @aniri5j9ox8tw2ln ,

thank you for pointing us to that solution where importing a character style with text rotation from Illustrator to InDesign with CC Libraries does the job for InDesign!

 

Did you test that with InDesign 2022 and Illustrator 2022?

 

First I had no success if only property Character Rotation was stored with the character style and loaded to an InDesign document:

CharacterStyle-CharacterRotation-Imported-from CC Library stored from AI.PNG

 

It needed a second property apart from Character Rotation, e.g. a fill color stored with the character style, that finally the character is showing up as rotated:

 

CharacterStyle-CharacterRotation-Imported-from CC Library stored from AI-PlusFillColor.PNG

Hallo Uwe, ich konnte nach verlinkter Anleitung den Stil ganz einfach in Indesign an meinem Text anwenden.

Ich hatte zuvor nur in Illustrator im Charakterstil-Fenster die Attribute unter jedem Punkt sauber und genau ausgewählt, damit es passt (Füllungsfarbe Schwarz 100%, keine Kontur, kein Überdruck usw.). Dann in Illustrator in der CC Library gespeichert, in der CC-App die .cclibs exportiert und in der CC Library von Indesign importiert (anders gings bei mir irgendwie nicht).

Ok, jetzt hat es auch ohne den Import der .cclibs Datei geklappt, es hatte davor was mit der Synchronisation nicht geklappt... Habe es nochmals versucht ohne explizit Füllfarbe oder andere Einstellungen im Attributen-Fenster zu verändern (also einfach neuen Charakter-Stil hinzufügen und in der CC Library speichern) und es klappt in ID ohne Probleme!
