Hi everyone. I'm designing in InDesign CS3 for PC. I normally design in illustrator, which explains my extreme ignorance of InDesign. Using it makes me feel like I'm trying to make a sculpture with boxing gloves on.
I'm working on an existing file a client sent me and there are these dashes that form dividers between paragraphs. I can't select them, though they're definitely part of this text, they're like some horrible elusive rule or something.
I need to add a paragraph which means copying the stupid divider thing, but whenever I start a new paragraph, or even copy and paste the ones which the divider, the divider won't copy below a certain line. It's driving me crazy, someone please help!!!
I'm probably too late to help you, but it sounds like you have a paragraph rule on (rule above or rule below)...put your cursor in one of the affected paragraphs, and go to the paragraph panel and choose paragraph rules. Check the pull down menu for rule above and rule below and see if either is checked. If you want the rule to occur after every paragraph, then you should build a paragraph style and build the rule into it. Hope that helps!
