Default text/character/paragraph questions...

firstly, i'd like to thank everyone that's helped me thus far. its really apreciated!

heres the sceneario, i've got text like this (all in the same text box):
HEADING
small
small
small

Heading
small
etc

how (if its possible) can i control the distance between the last 'small' font and the following 'heading'? I'm looking for something like a half-paragraph return.

any ideas? thanks

Increase "Before paragraph" spacing on the second heading, if you were to do it as a style sheet. Otherwise you could just increase "After paragraph" spacing on the last paragraph of the small text.

Easiest way is to create a “last line” style that includes the desired space after, and use that where needed.

Or you could create a “subhead” style with space.

The choice depends on how much of this stuff you need to do, and which would be more efficient.

Thanks guys!

"Space After" worked a treat for this job! and i found "sequential styles" (exactly what i was looking for) which I'll be using from now on.

ok, different question....

I'm making a 48 page event guide in adobe ID.

whats the best way to create a footer with a website address and page numbering that alternate left/right?

www.website.com 1

2 www.website.com

www.website.com 3


(the printers asked for the file to be uploaded as pdf with single (non-facing) pages.

should i use 2 masters with the alignments set out, or is there a better/easier way?

thanks

Why does the printer want you to use non-facing pages, I wonder? It makes this harder to manage.

Anyway, one way is to set up two different master pages, one with the “website #” format, the other with “# website” format. Then you will have to manually apply the correct master page to each page in the file.

You will also need to be careful when making edits or changes to make sure the alternate masters are assigned correctly. Normally, odd-numbered pages are on the right; evens on the left. You will need to ensure this, page by page.
