Explore the numerous type options, type-related features, and type-specific preferences of Adobe InDesign. Using practical, real-world examples, instructor and designer Nigel French dissects the anatomy of a typeface and defines the vocabulary of typography. The course moves from the micro to the macro level, addressing issues such as choosing page size, determining the size of margins, adjusting number columns, and achieving a clean look with baseline grids. This course takes you from laying out a page to delving into the hows and whys of typography.
If you're a Premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library, you have access to the exercise files for this course. Once you've downloaded them, you may access the files for each movie by opening up the individual chapter folder. If you find yourself unable to open any of the InDesign files with your version of the software, try downloading and opening the IDML version, which is compatible with InDesign CS4 and later. This course is all about typography, and throughout the exercises, Nigel makes use of fonts that probably won't be available on your computer.
If this happens, you may see a dialog box like the one you see onscreen. You can try to either find the font on your computer, if you believe it's installed somewhere, or you can simply click OK, and continue following along using a substitute font. If you're not a Premium member of the Online Training Library, you won't have access to the exercise files, but that's okay; you should still be able to follow along with no problem.
