Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of InDesign CC 2018 New Features.
- [Speaker 1] In this course, I'm going to assume that you have a working knowledge of InDesign. Otherwise, how are you going to appreciate the new features? As I do for all my training videos, I've changed the interface from the default of white text on a dark background to black text on a light gray background, which I personally think makes it easier for viewers and students to follow along. You don't have to do that, but if you want your copy of InDesign to match as you're following along, just go to Preferences, which on a Mac is on the InDesign menu, or on Windows is under the Edit menu.
And then in the Interface panel, change the appearance to the lightest one and turn off Match Pasteboard to Theme Color. That's what I've done here. Also, in a few videos throughout the course, most especially in the first two, I compare certain features in CC 2017 to the ones in CC 2018, and I flip back and forth between both versions of the program. To make it easier for you to tell which version I'm in, I've left CC 2017 at its default interface of white text on a dark background.
And another way to tell which version of the app I'm in is to look at the application bar up here. This is CC 2017, or CC 2017.1. And this is CC 2018. Look what they're doing. They're including Adobe InDesign CC 2018 right here, so you can immediately tell which version you're in. I love it. Apparently this only works though on the Mac, because on Windows the application bar is crowded with a lot more information, so this won't fit. But that's another way to tell which version of the app I'm currently in.
That's all you need to know. Have fun.
