Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Long-document workflow overview, part of InDesign: Creating Long Documents (2012).
Careful planning at the start of a project can put you on the path to success.…So, let's spend a few minutes considering some of the questions you might want…to ask and answer before you create your first InDesign document.…And first of all, let's acknowledge that every project is unique, there are…unique requirements and everyone has their unique way of working.…My general recommendation is that you start with the end in mind, start with…what you're trying to build and then figure out how to build it.…Start with the top issues and then drill down to the details.…The time you spent at the start of your project thinking about your…workflow, identifying important issues and planning for them can be the most…important time spent of all.…
First of all let's talk about deliverables.…What are your deliverables?…What are you trying to make and what are you trying to get out of InDesign?…It could be a print PDF, interactive PDF, an eBook of some kind, or maybe you're…packaging up the InDesign files with their assets and delivering those too.…
