InDesign Secrets -

I was digging around in the InDesign CC 2015 "Object Model" today while working on a complicated script project, and I ran across this:  For those unfamiliar with scripting, this might not look like much.

InDesign Secrets -

The details of how Creative Cloud subscribers can install older versions of InDesign have been mentioned here before in other posts, but since the question comes up a lot (and Adobe is always tweaking things), I thought the topic should have its own post, which I will try to keep updated.

Make a Continued Heading in a Table

InDesign Secrets -

You probably already know that InDesign has a feature that lets you put headers at the top of each table, even when the table spans across two or more columns, text frames, or pages.

Free lynda.com Video: Optimizing Baseline Grid Previews

InDesign Secrets -

I think we can all agree that baseline grids are an essential tool for creating high quality long documents, right? So why are InDesign's default settings for baseline grids so…weird?
