I'm working on a book design and I'm currently trying to format the blockquotes. I want them to be offset from the rest of the text to create a bit of visual interest, but I cannot seem to do it the way I want.
I want the margin towards the spine to be larger and the margin away from the spine to be smaller, but I still want the text to be aligned justified to the left. I know there's an "Align Away From Spine" option, but that's not what I'm looking for. I'm looking for a way to indent relative to the spine, keeping the alignment the same for all pages.
Is there a way to do this in InDesign?
This is what I would like to do:
The text on top and bottom is normal body text while the paragraphs in the middle are blockquotes. As you can see, all text have the same alignment.
This is a sample page from the design:
(Emphasis done on margins and page edge for clarity.)
As you can see, the text is indented the same amount on both sides, allowing me to outdent things like dropcaps for chapter headings. Right now, the quote is indented by two units on each side, but I'd like to outdent it by two units on the side away from the spine instead.
