In part two of this course, we'll be looking at crucial issues of macrotypography, alignment types, indents and spacing, how to efficiently format your InDesign documents with paragraph styles and character styles, and how you can control the way your words, lines, and paragraphs break. I'll also be discussing techniques for combining typefaces, using grids, and incorporating whitespace into your layouts.
