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.
If you ever feel a bad feeling like the power is about to go out, this shortcut might come in real handy. It's the shortcut to save all open documents in one keystroke. Command+Option+Shift+S or Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S, S for save. You'll see that all three of these documents and the tabs have an asterisk next to their filename. That means they've been dirtied since they have been opened, meaning something has changed. So that's just to set up and show you that I am going to go ahead and save all these simultaneously. So Command+Option+Shift+S, Ctrl+Alt+ Shift+S, all three have now been saved and those asterisks go away.
So that shortcut may actually just come in handy, right before a power outage. The problem is you have to know when the power outage is going to happen, but you get my drift. It's a great shortcut.
