Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Opening and getting around a document, part of Introducing InDesign.
- In this movie I'll show you how to open…an existing InDesign document, that is…something you've created and saved in the past.…I'll also show you how to get around that document…by which I mean, zoom-in for a closer look,…and zoom-out to take in an entire page.…Now, if you're a Premium member of Lynda.com…and you have access to my exercise files,…I want you to go up to the File menu…and choose the open command.…And this is a command that you'll be using…on a regular basis to open documents…that you've created in the past,…but it also allows you to open documents…created by other people on different machines…whether they're using a Mac or a PC.…
You also have a shortcut of "Ctrl O" here on a PC…or "Command O" on a Mac.…And that will bring up the Open a File dialog box.…Now notice that I've got two versions of this file…that's called Photoshop 3D notes; there is an "indd" version…which you can open in the most recent version…of InDesign CC, but if you're using an older version…of the software, that is InDesign CS6 or earlier,…
