Paragraph Styles and RGB Conversion
by David Berezai on Nov 26, 2004 at 9:46:33 am
I’m a newbie user of creative cow, it has been recommended to me by a design colleague of mine. I’m also a new user of Indesign and in using it frequently it has posed a couple of questions. Despite my problem solving with the aid of the manual I am unable to find the answers.
I have recently been using Character and Paragraph Styles. In using them I have notice that you can achieve the same thing in terms of character (Font Families etc) in the Paragraph Styles options as the Character Styles options. Is there a reason for there being two ways to achieve the same thing? And if so what is its usage?
Also, is there any way to convert images from RGB to CYMK within the application or do images need to be converted prior to import?
If anyone could help me with these issues I would very much appreciate it

Are you asking why the need for both character & paragraph styles? Paragraph styles have extra settings such as space after a paragraph, justification, and apply themselves to the entire paragraph. Charcter style are when you just want a few letters or words to be different than the paragraph style, such as italicizing type
You need to convert RGB images to CMYK in Photoshop. If you are not getting the correct amoutn of Black generation, you solution is actually in edit >> color settings > CMYK: custom CMYK >> Black Generation.
