Last week was “pi approximation day” (22/7) so I’ve been thinking a lot about estimates, approximations, or “ballpark figures.” I guess that’s why I’m comfortable with this series of articles being called “This Week in InDesign Articles.” Obviously it doesn’t truly come out weekly, and the articles aren’t all from a single week. It’s really […]

Before CS6, Adobe had different icons for each version of its applications. So it was relatively easy to tell which version you were using to open a file. Starting with CS6, Adobe stopped changing the icons for each version. So it was easy to get confused as to which version you very using. Today I decided to […]

Did you ever wish you could fill multi-line text with a gradient, so that the gradient is applied to each line separately, like so: If you target the fill of the text and just try dragging with the Gradient tool, the gradient gets applied once to all the text in the frame. Instead, take advantage of […]

In the latest episode of InDesign Secrets on lynda.com, you can learn how to achieve some cool text effects by rotating text and text frames independently.

by Erica Gamet If you use GREP in InDesign, you either know the name Peter Kahrel or you should. He literally wrote the book on using GREP specifically in InDesign. I had the pleasure of meeting him in person at this year’s PePcon (in my GREP session, so no pressure there). He let me in on a little addition to InDesign’s […]

One of the nifty new features in the 2014 Release of InDesign CC is the improved handling of scaled effects. Now when you scale an object with transparency effects applied to it all (including drop shadows) the effects will also scale as expected. And to mark this occasion, I’ve added four new movies to the InDesign FX […]

by Olav Martin Kvern I like to build things. Physical things, not just software and page layouts. In fact, I like to build synthesizers and robotic musical instruments. Yes, I am a weirdo. Don’t run away just yet—even though you may not be doing this yourself, there’s a reasonably good chance that you’ll be able […]

If you’ve ever used InDesign’s PDF form tools to make a List Box or Combo Box, you know what a pain it can be to add a long list of choices manually. So. Very. Boring. That’s why InDesign scripter Chuck Weger created the ComboMambo script back in 2012. It allows you to import a list of […]

by Andrej Balaz The first time I learned about the XML workflow in InDesign was when I was confronted with the massive task of designing a new edition of the Mobile Developer’s Guide to the Galaxy every few months. The Mobile Developer’s Guide to the Galaxy is a beautiful community publication project initiated by Enough […]

As David Blatner reported here, I discovered a cool technique to solve an attendee’s question at the recent PePcon. (For all of you who haven’t gone to a PePcon, the “Meet the Speakers” table is not just a great place to meet the people who speak, do podcasts, and write articles and blog posts, it’s also […]

In the latest episode of InDesign Secrets on lynda.com, David Blatner shares his must-know tips and tricks for using the Paste Into feature, which he calls “one of the coolest and most important features in InDesign.” And unfortunately as David points out, Paste Into is also one of InDesign’s least intuitive features. For example, you might not know […]

When InDesign CC 2014 was released, it introduced a new feature called Seamless Update. This feature migrates all the preferences and settings you’ve created in a previous version of InDesign into the 2014 release. But I’ve observed that many people are very confused over how this differs from another feature offered in InDesign CC and […]

A few people I know—well actually it was me—got confused when they looked at their Adobe Creative Cloud desktop manager and saw that the listing for InDesign as well as the other Creative Cloud 2014 applications were listed as “Updates.” The label “Update” is wrong. Notice the category at top called New Versions. This means […]

Have you ever placed a black box over something, trying to blot out whatever was behind it, only to find that you can see through it after all? For example: And what’s even stranger, the settings you choose when you make the PDF sometimes affects how it appears in Acrobat. For example, if you export […]
