The Martian Easter Egg (CS2 and CS3)
Anne-Marie and Sandee Cohen and I are currenly at The Pixel Conference and The Vector Conference in Chicago, Illinois. (Anne-Marie is just about to go on stage to do a session on cool stuff in Adobe Bridge, and Sandee is about to do a session on Fireworks.)
But after I showed the butterfly easter egg trick in a class yesterday, one attendee asked if there was a Martian in CS2… Yes! So, I know we’ve had a lot of talk on easter egg features recently, but forgive me… I just have to talk about one more:
To find the Martian easter egg in CS2 (this works in CS3, too):
- Open the Print dialog box (File > Print).
- Click the Save Preset button
- Name the preset “Friendly Alien” (no quotes) and click OK.
- Click in the page proxy area in the lower-left corner of the Print dialog box window and wait a moment.
Okay, that’s it! I’m done. No more easter eggs. (Well, at least for a while… ;) ) But remember: If you’re not having fun while using InDesign, you’re not doing it right!
