InDesign CS6 is dedicated to improving workflow, document distribution, and flexibility. This course provides in-depth exploration of the new features in InDesign CS6, showing not just where they are and how to use them, but also tips, workarounds, and practical applications of the features. Author Anne-Marie Concepción introduces the Liquid Layout tools and Alternate Layouts for creating flexible layouts for both print and digital publishing; the enhanced tools for creating and updating linked objects within and between documents; the Content Collector and Content Placer tools; and the introduction of EPUB 3. The course also covers creating interactive PDF forms, using the new primary text frame, previewing and exporting color layouts to grayscale, and utilizing the new production aids such as aligning selections to a key object and using smart math in panel fields.
If you are a Premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library, or if you're watching this tutorial on a DVD-ROM, then you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. They're in one folder, and if you open them up, you'll see that they're divided by chapter, very clearly. And then within each chapter, for every video, they're in their own subfolder. So in the video where I talk about using scaling, then I have a couple of InDesign files right there.
Many of the InDesign files have images placed in them, and they are all linking to this external Links folder right here. So just keep the Links folder exactly where it is in relationship with the internal InDesign files and you won't need to relink anything. If for some reason you do need to relink, this is the folder that you want to point to. If you're a Monthly member or Annual member of lynda.com, you don't have access to these exercise files, but you can follow along from scratch with your own files. So let's get started!
