Small caps in running heads - case problem

Small caps in running heads - case problem

Small caps in running heads - case problem

(OP)
My running head reproduces text which appears mixed-case in the body of the doc. I want the head in small caps all of the same size. There is no way I can find to force it to be all 'lower-case' (or upper-case), ie to avoid getting larger initial caps. Any ideas? I can't believe this is not possible.

RE: Small caps in running heads - case problem

You're running head should be on the master page.

Then you only have 2 instances, left and right page, to change the running head style to your liking.

What version of InDesign are you using?

Did you manually insert each running head on all the pages and not use a master page?

RE: Small caps in running heads - case problem

Yep done all that. When you apply the style Small Caps (via the button at TL on toolbar) to the running head on the master page, you get 'mixed case' heads, ie a larger small cap where there was a leading cap in the original text, on the actual pages.

RE: Small caps in running heads - case problem

(OP)
And when you 'change case' on the master running head to, eg, all lower case or all upper, it has no effect on the generated running heads.

What?

Follow my link in my signature to a blog, and my contact info is there.

Can you do a Save As and then follow this please, I'd like to see the file:

Can you go to your file and go to File>Export and choose InDesign Interchange (.inx)

And forward it to me.


It doesn't have to be the whole file, or the actual text, just a few pages, and you can remove any sensitive data.

OK, will do this evening (This is not my day job) And thanks for showing interest!

RE: Small caps in running heads - case problem

No problem.

It could be a number of things. Saves the back and forth of questions and mix ups and things like that.

OK it's fixed - somehow I missed that you could edit the header variable to control the case.

RE: Small caps in running heads - case problem

Ah I just opened it a few minutes ago.

Yes, you edit the Case in the Variable.

Glad you've got it working now.
