Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Placing and cleaning up text, part of Designing a Restaurant Menu.
I've saved my ongoing work as menu_ insert1, and by the way, I'm working in the…Typography workspace, if you want to use the same workspace as me.…I'm now going to place the text: Command+D or Control+D, File > Place, and this is…the one I'm after. It's just called menu.…There is a strong likelihood that when I place this text, I'm going to find, in…the text file, lots of information that is superfluous to what we need.…There maybe extra formatting, most likely though, there is going to be…extra spacing, particularly extra paragraph marks, extra word spaces; there…may be extra tabs. We want to strip all of that stuff out. We just want…pure, plain vanilla text.…
So just to help me here, I'm going to choose Show Import Options, which gives me…the option of stripping out any formatting.…Now, I happen to know that in this text file, there isn't any formatting, but there…is a strong likelihood, if you're working on similar project, that there will be.…I can choose Show Import Options; most of the time, you don't need this option on.…
