In this video, you'll explore InDesign's multiple undos and mini saves.
- [Voiceover] How do we recover from mistakes in InDesign?…As you might expect, there's an Undo feature…with unlimited undos.…Just so long as the document is open.…I'm gonna select some frames…and then press the delete key, to remove them.…Now if I want to undo those steps,…I can come to the Edit menu and choose Undo…or use the keyboard shortcut Command or Control+Z.…And I could just pressing that keyboard shortcut…until I'm back to where I had began.…
If I want to redo the steps,…then that the second item under the Edit menu.…or the keyboard shortcut, Command or Control+Shift+Z.…Sometimes you lose track of the sequence of changes…and you need to revert the document to it last saved state.…From the File menu, come and choose Revert.…In InDesign you won't find a History panel…like you do in PhotoShop…and if this is something that you're used to,…and are missing a plugin from DTP tools,…we'll add this functionality.…
As a safe guard against mistakenly…overwriting a file,…or in the unlikely event…that the document becomes corrupted,…
Author and designer Nigel French explains how to set up an "editorial workspace" that puts the tools you need most at close reach. He then moves on to selecting and editing text in InDesign: changing case, adding special characters, formatting lists, and inserting breaks. He also shows how to use the Story Editor, Notes, and the Track Changes feature, and explains how InDesign documents are constructed, so that you can edit them with more confidence.
