In InDesign CS4 Power Shortcuts, Adobe product manager and designer Michael Ninness reveals hundreds of tips to boost productivity, including the top 20 power shortcuts every InDesign user must know. From placing multiple images to the hidden power of Quick Apply, each one of these videos covers an important topic, and includes just the right amount of information to make anyone a true InDesign power user. InDesign users are always looking for faster, more efficient ways to do everything, and this course offers just what they're looking for. Exercise files accompany the course.
Here's a couple of quick shortcuts for changing the case of text. So from normal case or sentence case to all caps or small caps. Let's go ahead and select this headline paragraph by triple-clicking, and then your keyboard shortcut for all caps, Command+Shift+K, Ctrl+Shift+K in Windows and that changes it back to the All Caps. This is a toggle. So if I do Command+Shift+K or Ctrl+Shift+K again, it takes it back to being normal. And then the keyboard shortcut for small caps is Command+Shift+H or Ctrl+Shift+H that takes it to small caps were the first letter, if it was capital it is still a capital letter but the rest of them have been set to small caps.
And again that's a toggle as well. So Command+Shift+H again, or Ctrl+ Shift+H again, takes it back to normal. So two very quick shortcuts. Often time a lot easier than trying to remember which menu or which button in a panel is used to specify those attributes.
