Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Preferences and usage, part of InDesign CS3 Long Documents.
In this chapter we are going to look at using the Story Editor and related features in InDesign…for preparing your text and editing your text.…The Story Editor is a very humble feature but an incredibly useful one and for more than just editing your text.…Let's just remind ourselves of how we get there in the first place.…You need to have a story selected either with your Type tool or your Selection tool…and then come to the Edit menu, Edit in Story Editor.…Here we have just a plain vanilla galley of our text and it's simplicity and plainness is its strength…because we don't see font sizes, we don't see graphics, the column breaks, page breaks.…
All we see is text and that can be incredibly useful because when we want to concentrate just…on the text it's often much quicker to work this way.…Now you can do your edits in the Story Editor, they automatically update in the Layout,…you can apply your styles in the Story Editor.…You have some story editing viewing preferences onto the View menu.…You can hide this Style Name column should you choose the depth ruler, which is this thing here.…
