Creating Long Documents with InDesign shows designers how to create book-length documents in workflows with multiple users—using both InDesign features and third-party plug-ins. Publishing veteran Mike Rankin focuses on long document elements such as page and chapter numbering, table of contents, cross-references, and indexes. The course also provides an overview of document construction, from creating master pages and applying consistent formatting with styles to placing text and images and outputting to both print and interactive PDF.
Hi! I'm Mike Rankin and welcome to Creating Long Documents with InDesign. In this video series I'll show you how to build and deliver long documents using InDesign CS5.5. We'll start with basic solid document construction and move on to creating reusable templates from design prototypes. We'll see how to use the power of styles for consistent and efficient formatting. And of course we'll also cover the long document specific features of InDesign, things like the Book panel, table of contents, indexes, cross-references and footnotes. And we'll see how to make customized versions of long documents with conditional text and object styles.
Finally, we'll conclude with preflighting, outputting and archiving our project assets, so they can be easily retrieved with no missing pieces the next time we want to work with them. Let's get started right now, Creating Long Documents with InDesign.
