Fortunately the latest free video in the InDesignSecrets series at has all the info you need to fix these faulty defaults.


In the video, Anne-Marie Concepción shows three key settings you must change to really get the most out of your baseline grids so they’re less distracting, and only visible where (and when) it makes sense.
