I’m wanting to create a line underneath my headings but I would like them all to be the same size – I know I can create a paragraph rule but I am unable to get this to be the same size for all my headings, it’s either the length of the text or column which I don’t want.
Is there any workaround or another way of doing this?
Tricky. You could perhaps anchor a line. For example, you could find all the headings and paste an anchored line at the beginning of the paragraph. Make sure the line is set to an object style, so that it’s easy to adjust later, after being anchored.
To paste an anchored object, you would want to use the find/change “from clipboard” trick:
Michel A. sent me a private msg with a brilliant workaround to do this! In the Strokes panel menu, choose Stroke Styles. Make a new Dash stroke that has a very long pattern length, no corners, and a dash the length you want. For example, here’s how you can get a stroke that is always 5p wide:
You can apply that custom stroke as a Rule Below. Thank you, Michel!
