As mentioned in a comment, this could be achieved using Anchored Objects. I've written an answer about that here. But if your design is as simple as you show on your screenshot, it can actually be achieved only using paragraph styles in one single text frame.
Edit: I've realized that this method only works in a single text frame. If the text flows to another ...
Transliteration of Egyptian uses all these four characters as well, and several fonts have been made specifically for Egyptian transliteration based on classic typefaces. Unfortunately, though such fonts exist based on Garamond (Aegyptus/Nilus) and Bembo (Cardo, for general philological use), I’m not aware of any which are based on Caslon.
Adobe Caslon doesn’...
One method would be utilize the Shape Builder tool and Pathfinder..
Convert the T to outlines via Type > Convert to Outlines
Draw colored rectangles to cover the areas you want colored
Select All this
Grab the Shape Builder Tool, hold down the Option/Alt key and click the areas you don't want to remove them
Lastly, select all again and click the Merge ...
First, your current setup probably works.
Not good, not bad, but will get the message across. People are used to reading all kinds of randomly formatted docs. What you're calling the "antipattern" is actually bad UX.
Also, calling the solutions A, B and C after already numbered as 1, 2 and 3 is redundant. They are either 1,2,3 or A,B,C. Information ...
Yes its called a paragraph.
Word is perhaps not the program that you want to use as a metric for what is possible or even common.
For example stackexhange handles this kind of structure with no problems.
See you can have number of items
Inside each other
And return to previous level
Then add a item.
Although the css may not be super optimal for this.
The striped texture in your example can be a real photo of cardboard which is curved and also has a dimples. The grey nearly horizontal lines are not grooves, they are on the surface with no depth.
The text has Bevel&Emboss layer effect as you show. The texts have the same striped texture as the cardboard, but it doesn't by any means follow the curvature ...
I'm not sure I really see what the problem is. Aren't you just missing the paper texture?
Set the layer mode of the Text layer to "Soft Light", text colour to 50% grey, and try Bevel and Emboss settings like these:
Obviously I don't have the same font here.
Depending on your setup or how many of these pages you've got, a table setup could be easier to keep under control and that can also spread across multiple pages.
Just need two columns, drop everything left and right, and then customize the formatting & spacing of all cells in one go, apply styles in one go, etc.
I had this same issue for a poems book we are working on. I created a new paragraph style with a font of 10 pt and space after of 62 pt (1" = 72pt) and applied that style to a new first paragraph.This moved our title down to 1" from the top of the page.
