My interview on InDesign Secrets Podcast!
So, did anyone notice that I was the special guest visitor on David and Anne-Marie’s famous InDesign Secrets podcast?the famous podcast for all things InDesign heard round the world!
I would like to tell you some of the “behind-the-scenes” information on the podcast.
My morning started with a white, stretch limousine picking me up and whisking me off to a small airstrip outside Manhattan where David’s private Gulfstream jet was ready to fly me to Chicago where we would pick up Anne-Marie for the trip to Seattle. There we woud…
errr…what’s that David?
David says I have to be honest and explain that the whole interview was done over the phone with each of us in our respective homes. Oh well…the fantasy was fun.
Meanwhile here’s another bit of useless trivia that I remembered after the Obcusre Feature of the Week (…week…weeek…week).
Let’s say you have all sorts of strange spaces inserted in your text. Flush spaces, hair spaces, thin spaces, etc. And you want to turn them all into normal spaces.
Instead of running a search for each type of space, go to the menu triangle next to the Find field in the Find/Change dialog box. And scroll all the way to the bottom.
You’ll find a listing for white space. This white space will find any kind of white space in the document?regardless of its width.
It’s one of the wild-card characters. And although I haven’t had any files that required it, it might be helpful for cleaning up those weird spaces that sometimes come in with Word document. If someone has one of them, let me know.
