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.
So here I am in InDesign with three open documents. Two of them have not been changed yet. They don't have an asterisk next to their filename. The asterisk means that it has not been saved. In geek-speak, that means the document has been dirtied since it was opened or after it was opened. So that means there is a change to the document. We want to quickly close all our opened documents and there is a keyboard shortcut for that. It's Command+Option+Shift+W, Control+ Alt+Shift+W. Now, because there is a document that has made a change to it that has not been saved, it does intercept the close command.
It says hey, do you want to save this? I am going to ignore it and just say Don't Save and then it's going to proceed to close all those opened documents. So you just want to get a real quick, one-stop way to get rid of all your open documents, Command+Option+ Shift+W or Ctrl+Alt+Shift+W.
