Convert All Text to Outlines When Exporting an EPS File from InDesign

InDesign Secrets -

Okay, you’ve been asked to provide your InDesign layout as an EPS file and with all the text converted to outlines. I’m going to ignore the fact that I think this is crazy and that people should neither be exporting EPS files nor converting text to outlines. Instead, I’m just going to assume that you […]

Aquafadas

Peras al vino -

Aquafadas es una herramienta para la producción de app digitales partiendo de InDesign.

Nos va a servir tanto para producir apps de revistas y publicaciones, como para generar ePub 3.

Todo esto para las dos grandes plataformas: Appstore y Google Play, pero ademas, y muy importante para la web: podemos ver nuestra publicación con todo su contenido enriquecido en nuestro navegar. Ademas de estas tres salidas también podemos mostrar nuestras obras en iBookstore, Amazon, Kobo o Sony.

Su funcionamiento se basa en la instalación de una extensión que dará a InDesign la capacidad de crear contenido enriquecido (como PDS). Este contenido va desde (ver vinculo original):

  • Incluir paginas HTML
  • Pop Up
  • Bonotes
  • Desarrollar tanto en horizontal como en vertical
  • Insertar videos y audios
  • Texto (o cualquier elemento) en scroll
  • Comparación de imágenes
  • Imágenes animadas
  • Permite leer el texto
  • Además de esto se pueden comprar una serie de efectos como juegos, script, etc.

Otro aspecto importante es que nos permite usar y probar el sistema sin tener que gastar nada. Todos los pasos son gratuitos hasta que llega el momento de publicar, claro, al estilo de DPS.

Aunque no todo son ventajas:

  • La documentación es realmente mala. No solo que esta solo en ingles y en francés si no que ademas no esta actualizada. La ayuda que te dan en castellano es nula, ni pagando.
  • Algunos cuadros de dialogo dejan de funcionar bien y no permiten pegar texto, por ejemplo. Esto se soluciona cerrando y abriendo InDesign pero es molesto.
  • Cualquier cambio en un documento conlleva la generación nueva a la hora de exportar la app. Esto lo puedo entender. Pero es que basta con abrir un documento para que ya este cambiado para su motor interno con lo que conlleva en tiempo a la hora de generar la app.

Dicho esto os recomiendo que la probéis porque es una herramienta realmente buena y potente y el resultado es espectacular.

Saludos,

How to Download CS6 When You have a CC Subscription

InDesign Secrets -

If you have an Adobe Creative Cloud (CC) subscription, you can still get the CS6 versions of most of the apps, including InDesign. Sometimes you need an older version! But Adobe currently doesn’t make it obvious how to find the CS6 apps. So here’s a quick lesson in where they’re hiding. (Note that the Adobe […]

Using InDesign to Create UX/UI Designs

InDesign Secrets -

I’ve talked about how InDesign is great for wireframing (designing a web page, for example… not for the actual HTML, but for the design aspects, as a mock-up). Now Justin Putney has gone one further and produced a whole movie at lynda.com on the topic of using InDesign to create UX (user experience) designs for […]

Adding Prefixes to Page Numbers in InDesign

InDesign Secrets -

For a page-layout program, adding page numbers can be surprisingly confusing! But fear not, it’s not as bad as it sometimes seems. We have several articles about page numbers already, but I want to focus on one aspect of numbering (or adding “folios” as some call them): adding prefixes. For example, let’s say you want […]

Multilevel Numbering With a Zero (like 2.0.1)

InDesign Secrets -

Here’s an interesting problem: How can you make an auto-numbered list of paragraphs that goes 1.0, 2.0, 2.01, 2.02, 2.1, and so on? It seems like it should be simple, but it takes a little extra work. I’ve discussed how to make multi-level numbered lists here, and stressed the importance of making multiple paragraph styles. […]

InDesign and the Trumatch System

InDesign Secrets -

When people think about color swatch libraries, they almost always think about Pantone, but Pantone isn’t the only library out there and there may be good reasons you should consider others. For example… Trumatch! Background First, it’s critical that you understand that most color swatch libraries are for spot colors — that is, colors that […]

Adjust the Space Between a Drop Cap and the Next Letter with Kerning

InDesign Secrets -

When you assign drop cap formatting to a paragraph (so that one or more letters at the beginning of the paragraph drop down more than one line), InDesign creates the drop cap in a rectangular area. That means the text to the right of the drop cap does not runaround or wrap to the contours […]

Why Document Fonts Sometimes Don’t Work

I was reminded today about a common problem. In the following image, I have opened a document, selected some text, and applied a font: Unfortunately, the text was immediately highlighted with “the dreaded pink.” What’s wrong here? Why can’t I apply this font that is in my Font menu? The dreaded pink means one of […]
