(Music playing.) Hello, I'm Michael Ninness. As an author for lynda.com, my mission is to make learning fun and practical, and turn you into a power user. This course, InDesignCS4 Power Shortcuts, is aimed at just that. It reveals the essential shortcuts and hidden tricks in InDesign, so you can get more done in less time. At the start of this course, I'm going to show you the top 20 power shortcuts that every InDesign user must memorize. But that's just the warmup. From there, I'll show you how to make InDesign fly by keeping your hands on the keyboard as much as possible.
I'll also demonstrate better document and panel management strategies, aimed at getting the interface out of your way. First, I'll show you techniques in how to be quicker and more nimble when working with text, styles, pages, master pages, layers, guides, placing images, and much, much more. Now, I developed this course so it could be watched from start to finish, but also so it could be used as an ongoing quick reference tool as well. With that in mind, I recommend you breeze through the entire course, but come back often for specific reminders until you've memorized all the power shortcuts that are relevant to you in your InDesign work.
