- This course will teach you lots of tricks and methods that will take your InDesign work further, faster.

This course moves on from the basics and covers a wide range of useful advanced tips and tricks to help speed up your work. It covers creating and saving tables, story jumps, GREP searches, adding footnotes, CMYK and RGB blending modes, data marge, creating your own keyboard shortcuts and how to hide menu items that you don’t often use – and a whole lot more.
- Anyone who wants to take their InDesign skills to the next level.
If you need to add footnotes to a document on a page-by-page basis, InDesign can help. Here's how.
Draw a text frame, and the caption automatically appears. Magic? No – it's 'text variables'.
This video shows you how to add new, or change existing, keyboard shortcuts. InDesign will tell you if the shortcut you propose is already assigned, and if so to what. In that case you can either come up with something different...or use it anyway! It also shows how to hide menu items that you rarely use.
This video covers the three ways of importing a large block of copy – manual, semi-automatic and automatic. Then it shows you how to create text frames on master pages and flow the copy into the result – which automatically generates as many pages as are required for the whole thing. Then it shows you how to insert different layouts into the mix, and include them in the text flow.
If you're working on a long document and need to place a number of hi-res CMYK images into it, you may find that InDesign begins to slow down...and down...and down! So, the closer you get to your deadline, the slower the app becomes. Awful. This is an easy way to deal with it, so no matter how many images you're dealing with, InDesign never slows you down at all.
