Free InDesign style sheet template

If you have a long text document to format and aren’t quite familiar with setting up Style Sheets in Adobe InDesign, this free pre-made Style Sheet template is just for you. The template is based on an OpenType mix of two fonts fonts (Meta Serif/Sans Pro), but can easily be changed to another pair of fonts. Besides directly using modifying the styles, exploring the file will give you some great ideas of how to achieve different looks through the use of paragraph and character styles. The download includes the following styles and more:

  • Semantically named paragraph and character styles
  • 3 subheading levels, with and without automatic numbering
  • Bullet and numbered lists in 2 levels
  • Paragraph with and without indents
  • Drop cap paragraph
  • Quote
  • Table style
  • Text box styles
  • Caption
  • Text formatting styles
  • Footnote layout

The article from InDesigning.net explains how to load and use the styles in your InDesign document, as well as provides a PDF file showing off the styles in a sample document. The document was created in InDesign CS4, and is quite handy because it saves you the time of setting up a style sheet from scratch – allowing you to simply edit an existing one.
