Using nested styles, InDesign users can create a single paragraph with multiple character styles inside of it.

  • Annette Dusa says:

    Thank you for a very descriptive, easy to understand video! This will save me a lot of time.

    thank you!, that’s made life way easier for me 🙂

  • David says:

    I tried to add a Shortcut, but it is not working. You need to explain every step as if the viewer has absolutely no experience whatsoever with the application. Just walk through every single reason why something might not work and how to correct it.

  • Bridget says:

    It took me a few minutes to realize you have to use the number keypad to type in the shortcut field. LOL.

  • marsha says:

    I didn’t realize you could actually TYPE in the Nested Style entry –
    always thought it was just pulldown -doh!

    (and haha Bridget I had the SAME problem LOL)

  • BOY says:

    Hi! What symbol you write in Nested Styles – Price section? Is it from keyboard ” – ” minus or something else? Because this is the thing which i do wrong, thats way in the end, my “Product entry” changes tyle to “Product name” style.. 🙂

  • Rama says:

    Great tutorial! I will have great use for this at work. I work with lots of text for tradeshow signage and this will save me loads of time.
    However, I’m getting stuck somewhere. I’ll keep trying until I get it.

  • Rama says:

    I can’t seem to play your tutorial at home. Ugh! I’m trying to figure out some stuff for work and it won’t run.
    All I see is a small red X. I right click it to play, but it still won’t run. How can I fix this?
    Geez, I gotta get a Mac.

  • Dwayne says:

    Thank you, I was going out of my mind trying to make this work until you made this process very clear for me.

  • Glen says:

    great, easy an instructive.

    (BTW, instructions would be easier on the listener if your mouth didn’t *snap* and *tut* and swallow into the mic…
