Welcome and how to use the exercise files

Welcome to InDesign Long Documents. My name is Nigel French, your instructor for these movies. This is not a beginning title, so you need to be pretty much up to scratch working with InDesign. If you're not, I recommend that you check out the existing titles on the library. and in fact I recommend that you check them out anyway. They are all very good. Now regardless of the length of your document, I hope that you are going to find some really useful techniques for speeding up your workflow in these movies.

If you are a premium member of the Online Training Library or if you are watching this tutorial on a disk then you have access to the exercise files used throughout. Let me just explain a little bit about where they are. They are in folder called Exercise Files, Here they are and this is how they are arranged and you will see also that I have on my Desktop this folder, Scripts Panel alias. And I'll be referring to that and explaining what that is all about in the upcoming overview movie.
