Initial Words in Text Style


Recommended Posts

Hi @osang  Forgive me if I'm misunderstanding your request (for starters, I've never used InDesign), but you can have multiple End Characters.  I think I saw this demo'ed in one of the original Getting Started videos…  Is that what you mean?

Apub's End Character (Up to & including the end character) is not equal to ID's option of Up to (Up to & not including the Up to character) is not equal.

Instead of APUb's method of a single, mostly worthless option, a drop down of options (not explicitly seen in the ID screen shot) should be how Initial Words work. QXP has similar options as ID, though it does not have Nested Styles. Instead it has a Conditional Style option (different than ID's use of the same term) to achieve the same result as ID's Nested Styles.

Nope, adding other characters produced different results. I prefer zero word count and the end character shouldn't be part of the equation.

+ 1 for this, or better be able to include/exclude the end character with a checkbox.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

Is \t correct?

This seems to work as follows:

type the following in the end character field: ", hold option key and hit tab, then type ".
Make sure you have opening quotation marks followed by option tab followed by ending quotation marks.

A bit old thread, but for convenience of other users:

Inserting Zero-Width Space in text where you would like initial words to end and then using it as End character can be useful. You can enter '<ZWSP>' (without quotation marks) in 'end characters' input box. Not ideal, but mostly workable solution.
