Adobe InDesign has transformed into InDesign CC, a sleek 64-bit application with an ever-evolving toolset. But how do these changes impact designers? In this course, get an insider's take on the new feature set and performance enhancements that ship with the latest update to Creative Cloud. Author Justin Seeley reviews the most compelling features in InDesign, including HiDPI and retina display support, the modern dark interface, EPUB enhancements, and QR code generation.
Note: Adobe Creative Cloud is updated on a regular basis. We will add more tutorials as features are added or changed, so check back often.
Another great new feature that's been added to Adobe InDesign is the fact that index stories are now supported in the exported ePub file. Which basically means that there's going to be a live hyperlink to index terms that are displayed inside of the exported ePub file. And so, if you have an index in an ePub document, like the one that I have here, all you have to do is go File Export. Go to the Normal Export options, so I'll just name this index stories, ePub format, hit Save. I'm not going to worry about any of the settings in here, and I'm just going to hit OK. And once I hit OK, that is going to save that out onto my desktop. I can then, navigate out to my desktop, and I can open this up with Adobe Digital Editions.
And, once I get to Digital Editions, I can cycle through, all the way to the end, where the index is, and you'll actually see that there are live hyperlinks, here at the end, that link to the different areas, where these index terms live, inside of my ePub document. I could then tap on one, like the cathedral, and it takes me to the page where that indexed word is located. So again, all yo have to do is set up your indexes just like you normally would inside of Adobe InDesign, and then when you export this out to ePub, you automatically get these page links built into the document.
Now, if you're not sure exactly how to create an index inside of your InDesign documents, my suggestion is to take a look at the InDesign insider training course with David Blatner and specifically chapter six. Chapter six deals with long document text techniques and it actually has a movie on indexing a document. So, if you need help doing that, I suggest watching that course. Otherwise just generate your standard, indexes the way you normally would, an then you can now, view those exported, linked, indexed stories in your exported ePub documents.
