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, […]

A reader just asked if it’s possible to make several objects on the page move when a text frame expands. For example, in the following image, there’s a “body text” text frame, followed by four images with captions (four graphic frames and four text frames under them): The body text frame (the one that is […]

You probably know how every frame in InDesign, whether it contains text or images, is a vector object that you can reshape like a path in Illustrator by moving anchor points and control handles with the Direct Selection tool. But if you’ve ever applied corner effects to frames you may have been mystified about how to […]

by Ben Richardson This tutorial will show you how to simulate screen-print effects directly in InDesign, rather than using Photoshop and then placing the artwork into your layout. If you’ve ever played with blending modes in Photoshop, chances are you’ve created this effect at some point on your own. The blended colors can look lovely, the artwork […]

I know it’s trite that “there’s always more to learn,” but it is so true. I’ve been doing this for a long time, but still, every InDesign event I go to, I learn something. Every issue of InDesign Magazine I read, I learn something. And I’m constantly learning stuff from articles and videos around the […]

Did you ever wish you could print a set of pages from an InDesign document according to which master page they were based on? Something like that might come in very handy with certain long documents when you just need to print a specific subset of pages. For example, say you wanted to print out all the […]

I’m super excited to announce my newest lynda.com course, Adapting a Print Layout for Digital Publishing. The course is composed of 25 movies and the goal is to offer a clear roadmap for converting legacy print projects to digital—even if all you have to work with is a copy of the printed book. I also cover workflows […]

They say sharing is caring. It’s true in life and in the world of graphic design. For example, if you care enough to use consistent colors across InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator, you need to share your swatches. And in the latest InDesign Secrets video at lynda.com, Anne-Marie Concepción shows how to do that, by exporting swatches from InDesign […]

Did you ever need to highlight a paragraph in InDesign? Should be simple, right? You’d think there would be an option to do this in the Control panel or Paragraph Style Options. You’d think that you could just select a paragraph, click a button, and be done with it. You’d be wrong. Of course there are workarounds, like using custom […]

It’s always fun to stumble across some useful new resources for InDesign. Recently on Twitter, I found a link to a fun batch of InDesign scripts posted on GitHub by John Pobojewski. He calls it the InDesign Toolbox and it includes nine scripts that do useful little jobs, like… Adding a Page Border: Counting the number […]

We’re happy to announce that InDesign Magazine Issue 65 (September, 2014) is now available!

And the issue itself is a pretty long one: 98 pages of tips, techniques, and advice for every InDesign user! Here’s what […]

Fonts. Can’t live with ‘em, can’t live without ‘em. Sometimes you can’t get ‘em to load properly in InDesign. And sometimes you might’ve wished you could have some fonts available to a specific document (or to InDesign in general) and not activate them on your computer. And indeed you can make fonts available only in InDesign or […]

I love coming up with new and unusual ways to make patterns in InDesign. Awhile back, I came up with a way to make 1950′s inspired floor tiles; basically, a black and white checkerboard pattern. But I recently thought it would be fun to try creating this same effect using text. 1. Go to Type > Glyphs. […]

We also need to maintain a strong online presence to promote our work, find new clients and partners, and be part of the conversation on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social media. So with that in mind, this month’s Premium member benefit templates […]

by Gerald Schmidt From a very early glimpse (just a table with a few splashes of color) at the start of 2014, to the big unveiling earlier this summer at PePcon and the Creative Cloud launch, the new fixed-layout EPUB export feature has been, for me, the year’s main event in the InDesign world. Selecting Export […]
