If you are a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library, or if you're watching this tutorial in disk, you have access to the exercise files used throughout the training title. You can find them on your desktop in an Exercise Files folder. To follow along, just open up this folder and then open up the InDesign document referenced in the overlay graphic that appears for each video that uses an Exercise File. Most of the videos in this particular title are going to be using the Power Shortcuts .indd file. Go ahead and double-click to open that document. You may also see a page number referenced in the overlay.
You may need to turn to a specific page for the Exercise File to follow along with that particular video. If so, you can just press Command+J or Ctrl+J on Windows. Type the page number that's referenced. So, let's say it's number 5. Hit the Return key, and you'll be on that page and ready to follow along. If you're a monthly or annual scriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to the Exercise Files, but you can certainly follow along from scratch or use your own assets. Okay, let's get started.
