InDesign CS6 is dedicated to improving workflow, document distribution, and flexibility. This course provides in-depth exploration of the new features in InDesign CS6, showing not just where they are and how to use them, but also tips, workarounds, and practical applications of the features. Author Anne-Marie Concepción introduces the Liquid Layout tools and Alternate Layouts for creating flexible layouts for both print and digital publishing; the enhanced tools for creating and updating linked objects within and between documents; the Content Collector and Content Placer tools; and the introduction of EPUB 3.

InDesign EPUB


- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Anne-Marie Concepcion, and welcome to InDesign CS6 New Features. In this course, we'll look at the conveyor panel, and how the new content collector and placer tools help you easily copy and place multiple objects from one place to another in the same document, or different ones. Then I'll explain the concept behind InDesign's new alternate layout, and liquid layout feature set. How to link objects, and map styles, and help you get up to speed with using all these tools synergistically to generate multiple variations of the same content for different devices.

And I can't wait to show one of the most sought after features by designers, designing and creating interactive PDF forms, right in InDesign. Now let's get started with InDesign CS6, New Features.
