This Month in InDesign Articles, October 2016
It’s a spooky time of year, but InDesign users can always take comfort that InDesignSecrets is here to help save you from the ghouli-ghastlies of inefficiency and confusion. In fact, we wrote a whole feature article on the kinds of nightmares InDesign users often encounter! But there are lots of other fun articles and videos out there on the web that provide succor to InDesign users…
- Want a little inspiration about how you can use Publish Online from within InDesign? Here’s a great example. And, here’s a cool example that uses in5 instead (so they can put it on their own server).
- For InDesign users who want to get it right, on all their pages: the Equalizer script.
- Are you an InCopy user? If so, you should know a better way to rename stories.
- If you have a Lynda.com subscription and you’re interested in digital publishing with InDesign, check out Keith’s “curated playlist” of courses.
- Here’s another Lynda.com (or LinkedIn Learning) course you should know about: the brand new Learning Print Production from Claudia McCue.
- I think Optical Kerning is awesome (in some situations), but here are three typographic situations that you may want to avoid it!
OK, these aren’t really about InDesign, but they are about our industry:
- How to build a “post-Amazon” bookstore
- Wouldn’t it be cool to have a single font that can handle over 800 different languages? Have you heard about Noto (from “no tofu”) from Google?!
- Check out this fun interview of Von Glitchska on the new Creative Pipeline blog (okay, Von is an Illustrator guy, not really InDesign, but he’s awesome anyway).
- Want to change the kerning values throughout a document? You can use GREP styles!
- Looks like Adobe posted a little video tutorial I did for them on the “new” features in InDesign CC
- Want to learn how to use type and create type-related special effects? Check out this amazing list of tutorials.
- This short video about how books were (and still are!) hand-crafted makes me nostalgic and very happy
- This blog post about how InDesign is good for bloggers is interesting. Here’s another one.
- You want to learn how to design better? You’d be hard pressed to find a better teacher than John McWade from Before & After. Check out his new title at LinkedIn Learning on designing layouts (or the same course at Lynda.com). John also has a funny new post/contest going: Design a Boring Book Cover.
