They’ll thread text between text frames, add jump lines, and use columns in text frames; use the Paragraph Formatting controls; use Find/Change to replace formatting; and create and edit paragraph and character styles. They’ll position text in text frames and format frame edges; place Photoshop images in documents, set text wrap, modify graphics, and nest frames; group objects and manipulate objects within a group; and create layers and assign objects to them. They’ll print documents, create print presets, and export documents to PDF; and prepare documents for commercial printing. They’ll create and edit vector paths; create and edit clipping paths; and wrap type on a path. They’ll also manually resize type; use Quick Apply; create nested styles and GREP styles; create path-based text wraps and convert type to outlines; and precisely control leading, hyphenation, justification, and horizontal spacing. They will create, modify, and format tables; import Microsoft Word documents and map Word styles to InDesign styles; add headers and footers to tables; merge table cells; add editorial notes; and create table styles.

Adobe® InDesign CC will be used in class. It is much less applicable to earlier versions of the software.
