Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Resources for Word and InDesign help, part of Using Word and InDesign Together.
I threw a ton of information at you in this title, but there is more to learn.…I hope that what you learned will solve 85% of your problems.…But there's always that pesky 15%. And there's always the need to keep up to…date with the new versions of InDesign and Word.…So here are some of my favorite resources. First of all, InDesign Secrets.…This is the blog that I run with my partner David Blatner.…We talk a lot about dealing with placed Word files.…I'll probably be talking a lot about the lessons that I taught in this video as…posts on InDesign secrets.

And the other site that I brought up a few…times during this title is the Editorium. This is run by a friend of mine, Jack Lyon…who is a book editor and he's been running this site for years.…
