InDesign Secrets: the Quick Apply feature

In this week’s free InDesign Secrets movie, David Blatner reveals the often overlooked but indisputably indispensable Quick Apply feature. Quick Apply allows you to access styles, menu commands, and even scripts by employing two simple keystrokes (Cmd+Return on a Mac or Ctrl+Enter on a Windows machine), and then typing a few letters of your desired feature to immediately find and apply it. This means your fingers don’t have to leave the keyboard and your brain doesn’t have to remember where to find things in menus or panels.

For lynda.com members this week, Anne-Marie has an exclusive members-only video that demonstrates ways to customize the Links panel. The Links panel got much more informative starting with InDesign CS4, but sometimes the copious amounts of information presented is inconveniently stashed in the Link Info section of the panel. Anne-Marie shows you how to move the key information  you want about your linked files to make it conveniently accessible.

And Anne-Marie and David will be back in two weeks to reveal more secrets of InDesign.
