InDesign Secrets -

Using a One-Cell Table to Highlight a Paragraph of Text

InDesign Secrets -

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.

InDesign Secrets Video: Uncovering InDesign’s Special Font Folders

InDesign Secrets -

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 […]

Making a Checkerboard Pattern With Nested Styles

InDesign Secrets -

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. […]

The InDesign Conference Returns to Seattle

InDesign Secrets -

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who love delving into history and those who prefer to focus on the present and future. (Of course, I don’t really believe that there are only two kinds of people, but it is such a convenient saying.) My problem is that I am forever wanting […]
