Floating Text with Icon
 
1 Attachment(s)
What would be the best way to tackle this variable. I've attached a screen shoot of a Indesign file I'm doing the variable for. There are 4 lines of variable with a percentage point. If that line is zero it does not print and the rest of the text moves up. No problem, done this before. Whats throwing me off is the little icon in front of each variable line. The cross is a font in white with a small circle drawn behind it. Would a inline graphic work best? Thanks for any help or advise.

You could create a Repeatable Component, with a graphic frame and a text frame, and repeat that as necessary. Otherwise, unless, you can find a symbol font with that icon, you'll need to use an inline graphic.

Thanks Dan. That is my next stop. To see if I can find a font thats close to this.
A inline graphic has always given me trouble with getting the base align just right.
What do you mean by Repeatable Component? Thanks

It's basically like a little page of content, with various text and graphic frames, which can be put inline into a text flow and repeated. Search in the FusionPro User Guide for "Repeatable Component". I'll see if I can dig up an example.
