InDesign Trick

I learned this trick from GoMediaZine on Friday. Tried it yesterday. It will literally change my layout life. Works like a charm and I can’t believe I lined up any other way! I had to share.

In Adobe InDesign, move your cursor right before the first letter of the paragraph on the first line of your bulleted list. Press ctrl + \ and the other lines will fall in directly below that one. You are left with a clean left justified bulleted item. NOTE: When setting your rags by hand on the item, do not use a hard return (Enter) or the trick will not work. If you need to insert a manual break, use a soft return (Shift + Enter) and the list will still line up correctly.

Thank you, GoMediaZine.
