Join David Blatner for an in-depth discussion in this video Using advanced libraries, part of InDesign CS4 Beyond the Basics.
In the Essential Training title, we looked at how you can put often used…objects in the Library panel and then pull them out whenever you need them.…Let's revisit Libraries so that I can show you some even cooler aspects of this…awesome feature.…I am going to create a new library by going to the File menu, choosing New and…then choosing Library. I will give it the name Library, but you can call it…anything you want. I will drop it up here on the desktop, click Save and it…opens the Library panel. I will move this off to the side so we can see our…page a little bit better and I am going to simply drag one of these objects…into the library, there it is. The image is now in the Library panel. But what…if I want a bunch of objects on my page, maybe even all the objects on the page…in my library.…
No problem, I can go to the Library panel menu and choose Add Items on Page 1.…It takes all the items on page 1 and adds them as a single library entry. Note…that it will not add locked objects, or objects that are on hidden layers.…
