Your design is done. It looks great! But when you go to print it, InDesign squawks at you. It’s finding problems that aren’t detectable to the naked eye: overset text, missing fonts, missing links. That’s all fine and good—but why doesn’t InDesign alert you to these issues earlier in the process?
In this free episode of InDesign Secrets, I show you how to use Live Preflight—a feature kicking around InDesign since CS4—to alert you to design issues in real time. This feature is constantly working on your behalf. Learn how to use it right, and save yourself a lot of last-minute headaches when you go to print or export your documents.
I’ll show you how to use the InDesign Preflight panel to dive into the details when alerts pop up, and create custom preflight profiles that will check for exactly the kinds of issues that seem to crop up in your documents.
Watch the free video to get started! Then check back next week for more InDesign Secrets.
