In my last post, I outlined how to create individually named PDFs from a Data Merge using: bookmarks from a table of contents; and bookmarks from document structure I had mentioned that at the time of writing, I had been considering the use of a script to take a specific paragraph or character style to […]

Running headers, footers, and page numbers are document elements that should always come from a master page. But you might wonder how to keep things like page numbers visible on your document pages when you have other objects like photos or backgrounds that overlap them. Unless you override them, master page items will be stuck sitting behind […]

Several years ago, I wrote a blog post called Pointer Lines for Technical Writers. It explored the process I went through in creating a stroke style that allowed me to call out important items in technical photographs. To summarize, I created a custom stroke striped stroke style with a black stroke and a white gap. […]

There is more in the InDesign universe that is dreamt of in your philosophy, my friend! Here’s just a glimpse of what I’ve been looking at recently: Here is a list of GREP wildcard codes I’ve never seen before, apparently based on Perl — including “any math symbol,” and more. Okay, this is cool: a […]

Let’s take a little break from the usual fare of tips, tricks, scripts, and shortcuts, to consider a topic that’s probably a bit over your heads—literally (unless you are reading this in an airplane)—human flight. When we fly, we put up with everything from baggage fees to body scanners to get where we need to […]

The next issue of InDesign Magazine is coming soon and the theme is…(drumroll please)…workarounds! So it’s only appropriate (yet entirely coincidental) that in the latest InDesign Secrets video at lynda.com, David Blatner shares one of the most amazing workarounds you’re likely to ever see. He shows how to build a table of contents with any text (not just the text that’s […]

InDesign offers five kinds of Text Wrap: No Text Wrap, Wrap Around Bounding Box, Wrap Around Object Shape, Jump Object, and Jump to Next Column. Most of the time, one of these will give you the right results for your layout. But once in a while, you might find that none of them gives you the exact look that […]

I was just working on some artwork for The InDesign Conference and I exported a PDF and some of my text disappeared: Where did the “The” and “Conference” go?! I exported the PDF several more times with different settings. I confirmed that the text (which had been converted to outlines so I could make some […]

Unless you were trapped under a rock (or a pile of Android tablets) recently, you undoubtedly have heard about Apple’s new iWatch, er, Apple Watch. The glossy wearable gadget got more press attention than a Kardashian running for President. And whether you think the Apple Watch is a game-changing gizmo or a crazy contrivance, you had to have some […]

If somewhere on this Earth there existed a stone tablet on which were carved the Ten Commandments of InDesign, you can bet your bottom dollar that the words “Thou Shalt Not Commit Local Overrides” would be at the top of the list. Having a cleanly styled document has many benefits, regardless if your document is […]

The FindChangeByList script is a marvel, and I’ve used it many times to clean up documents. For example, double-clicking this script in the Scripts panel will convert all your double-dashes to em dashes, remove multiple spaces in a row and spaces at the beginning of a paragraph, and more. I’ve recorded a movie about it […]

Krissy wrote: Does anyone know what that bullet symbol with the A is called? And why anyone would use it as a bullet?

In a recent browse through the InDesign Scripting Forum, I came across another little gem, a script you can use to apply cell styles based on the content within those cells. You can get the script here. You’ll need to open it in a script/text editor and make a couple changes to match your needs, […]
