Rather new at book body design. Having a little problem. I know there are similar questions here, but it didn't really solve my specifics.
I have loads of quotes in my book that I will indent a little. I have a paragraph style for that, with space before and space after (a lines worth). I could of course apply those manually, but prefer not to. So far all good. The problem is when there is a quoted conversation between two or more people. The writer wants each answer/comment starting on a new line. With my paragraphs' style I get a blank line between each new comment. Some of those conversations are like:
What do you think?
Are you sure?
… and so on
Thus creating terribly long and ugly segments. So I want there to be no blank line between each new comment. How do I do this? Basically I would like the "space before" and "space after" to only apply when the quote paragraphs meet my body style, and not when another quote paragraph comes.
I tried to solve it by using forced line brakes between comments, so every quote would be just one paragraph. That doesn't work with my justified type through as it then justifies that last line, however few characters there are.
