In this week’s free InDesign Secrets video, Anne-Marie Concepción reveals 10 secrets of the Story Editor feature in Adobe InDesign. The Story Editor is designed so you can read text in a window that’s separate from your layout file, away from the distractions of the formatting and graphics.
But the Story Editor can also be handy in other situations, especially when it’s difficult or downright impossible to see in layout. If you encounter any of these scenarios in InDesign, Anne-Marie can show you why the Story Editor may be exactly what you need:
1. Changing text color
2. Sideways text
3. XML tags
7. Tracked changes
8. Inline or anchored objects
9. Overset text
10. Overset tables
All of which are easier to read, grab, and move around in the Story Editor. Check out the video above to see the Story Editor in action.
Meanwhile, Anne-Marie’s partner in InDesign secrecy, David Blatner, has an exclusive video for members in which he shares 10 ways to move an object in InDesign. The movie is aptly named Moving an object: Ten ways! and lynda.com members can find the video with the entire collection of InDesign Secrets.
