Define and apply styles via drag-and-drop

The Smart Styles plug-in is here to help save time on mind-numbing tasks like repetitive formatting. Follow these two steps:

  1. Define your Smart Style. This is as simple as dragging a formatted page element into a Smart Styles library.
  2. To apply your formatting to another page item, simply drag-and-drop from the library onto the object(s) and you're done!



Share, update and reuse formatting

Smart Styles’ intelligent programming recognizes complex structures within tables, texts and other objects and does all the hard work for you. And, if you decide to modify a Smart Style that's already been applied, the entire document can be updated in a simple step.

Smart Styles are stored in one or more InDesign libraries which can be shared with other users. And because text styles and swatches used by Smart Styles are automatically created when they are not available in the document, sharing and reusing styles is just a breeze.

Add spreadsheet functions to InDesign tables

Smart Styles doesn’t stop at formatting. It can also help you by adding formulas to InDesign and InCopy tables and by sorting rows. You can use formulas such as Sum, Round, and Average to calculate totals, and use up to three sort criteria according to your specific language requirements.

Smart Styles is available in the following languages
Brazilian, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish.
