In InDesign CS5: Interactive Documents and Presentations, Adobe Certified Instructor and designer James Fritz shows print designers how to use InDesign by itself and in conjunction Flash Professional to layout and design a wide range of digital documents. The course provides a tour of digital publishing trends, showing real-world examples of what can be achieved through InDesign. Several start-to-finish projects are also included, such as creating a presentation with transitions and animations, and building an interactive microsite. Exercise files accompany the course.
One of my favorite features of InDesign are scripts. They are tiny little programs that automatically perform repetitive tasks that would otherwise be a lot of manual work. To install a script, we are going to go to Window > Utilities > Scripts. We can also hit Command+Option+F11 on the Mac, or Ctrl+Alt+F11 on the PC. We want to install our scripts inside the User folder in the Script panel. Right now, I don't have any installed. I am going to right-click the User folder and choose Reveal in Finder on the Mac, or Reveal in Explorer on the PC. On my Desktop, I have two scripts that I am going to install.
At the bottom, we can find more information about each of these scripts. Using scripts may sound complicated, but if you think of them as extra features inside InDesign, you'll be happy to find out that they're only a double-click away.
