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.
This next shortcut is exactly the same as how it works in Photoshop, so you get two for the price of one here. And that's when you want to hide all the layers, but one. But maybe you just want to focus on the content of one particular layer, maybe of a complex document, and you just want to hide everything else from view and just focus in on that one particular layer. To do it is it's the make-better key again. Hold down the Option key or the Alt key and click on the eye of the layer that you want to see. So if I just want to see all the content on Layer 2 and hide anything else, I am going to Option+Click on the eye for Layer 2 and that turns off all the other layers in the document except for the one that you Option+Clicked on.
If you Option+Click back, it just toggles it back and all the other layers come back on. So just Option+Click or Alt+Click on whatever layer that you want to isolate. That turns all the other layers off. Option+Click again to toggle it back on to the way it was. So great shortcut. It works exactly the same in Photoshop as well.
