(music playing) Hi! I'm David Blatner. Welcome to InDesign Insider Training: Beyond The Essentials. In this course, we're going to learn tips, tricks, and techniques that InDesign experts use everyday to layout pages fast. I'll start by showing you how to manage all your documents quickly and efficiently, using workspaces and split windows. Next, I'll cover how you can customize InDesign to the way you work with shortcuts and preferences.
Then I get into the meat of this title, exploring Parent/child master page, Advanced Text and Typography features, such as the Optical Margin Alignment and GREP Styles, and best practices for importing and managing linked graphics. Finally, we'll see how to get the most out of InDesign's Scaling, Gridify, and Color Tools. Strap in tight and prepare to learn, as we delve beyond the essentials.
