A common feature in word processors is to define which style follows the application of any given style e.g. 'Heading 1' followed by 'Heading 2' itself followed by 'Body'.

I've had a good look around the UI and this forum but cannot find anything. So please add as a suggestion or show me how to do it! 

 

PS: at present I'm copying past the first couple of lines of a given section and then replacing the text. Not ideal but it works.

Hello @Moscool,

go to text styles and double click a style. In the topmost section called 'Style' you find a drop down box called 'Next style'. It does exactly what you are asking for :)

Allo Dominik

I'm being particularly hopeless here... I cannot find the 'Next Style' option anywhere!

Hi @Moscool,

I try to explain in three steps and give you a screenshot. I assume you have an APub document open with some text in a text frame. By the way: I'm on Windows.

  1. Select menu 'View > Studio > Text Styles' and make sure it has a checkmark.
  2. In the 'Text Styles' studio double click on any text style > a pop up window opens named 'Edit Text Style'.
  3. The 'Next Style' drop down is located in the upper section (see screenshot)

I hope this helps.

It sure does! All working now, many thanks! (note to the UI team: not the most obvious feature...)
