Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Mini Bridge, part of Creating Long Documents with InDesign.
In order to build your long documents, you are going to have to pull content…like Photoshop files and Illustrator files into your layouts.…And quite often you'll have to get content out of your layouts as well, to share it…with your coworkers.…The Mini Bridge panel helps you to be super efficient in this regard because it…allows you to preview content, place it into your layout, and even save content…out of your layout as snippets, all without leaving InDesign. Let's see how it works.…So we can open Mini Bridge, like any other panel, by choosing Window > Mini Bridge,…and it opens up, and I can see at the top…I have buttons to go forward and backward to navigate through different views.…
I can see my recent items, I can go Home, or I can click Browse.…I have a button to go to the full Bridge application.…I have buttons to change the views I have in Mini Bridge, and I can search …for items specifically.…There is also a breadcrumb trail here that I can click on to navigate, and a…little pop-up menu also to navigate to different folders.…
