Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting preferences, part of InDesign CC: Interactive Document Fundamentals (2014).
InDesign offers a lotta preference settings you can use…to customize it to the way you want to work.…And to the kinds of documents you're building.…So let's examine some of the preferences and settings that…can help you work faster and easier with interactive documents.…The first thing that's important to understand about…InDesigns preferences is, that some are global, meaning…they apply to all documents you work with,…while others are document-specific, affecting only the current document.…That idea's not hard to understand,…but unfortunately, there's no indication in the…Preferences dialog box, as to which ones…are global, and which ones are document-specific.…
It would be really helpful to tell one…kind from the other, when you're setting your preferences.…This is why I created the visual guide…to InDesign preferences which you can find at indesignsecrets.com.…The guide is a PDF file that you can download…with screenshots of the preferences dialogue box, and the document specific…preferences are all highlighted.…
