- Hi, I'm Mike Rankin and welcome to Creating Long Documents with Indesign. In this video series, I'll show you how to build and deliver long documents using Indesign CS5.5. We'll start with basic solid document construction and move onto creating reusable templates from Design prototypes. We'll see how to use the power of styles for consistent and efficient formatting and of course well also cover the long document specific features of Indesign. Things like the book panel, table of contents, indexes, cross references, and foot notes.
And we'll see how to make customized versions of long documents with conditional text and object styles. Finally, we'll conclude with preflighting, outputting, and archiving our project assets. So they can be easily retrieved with no missing pieces the next time we wanna work with them. Let's get started right now creating long documents with InDesign.
