This week on Monday Productivity Pointers, I’ll introduce you to a crowdsourced GPS app called Waze.
Crowdsourced GPS means this: The more people who actively use it, the more information you can get from it. With a quick tap, you can actively alert nearby drivers using Waze of traffic, accidents, detours, and other hazards.

When you’re embedding a video in an interactive document, like an SWF or a PDF, you often want to call attention to certain events in the video. With navigation points, you can jump readers to certain time codes with the click of a button. In this episode of InDesign Secrets, Anne-Marie Concepción shows how to add navigation points with InDesign’s Media panel and link them to ready-made buttons (complete with rollover states) from the Button library. You can then assign video-specific actions and export your document to an interactive format—and you’re ready to go.

What’s the easiest way to navigate long documents? You can use the Pages panel, but in layouts with more than 20 or so spreads, you’re doing a lot of scrolling. The Go to Page command isn’t much of a shortcut, either. In this week’s free InDesign Secrets video, Anne-Marie Concepción offers not one but three unexpected alternatives.
The first? Use InDesign’s bookmarks. It’s not what the feature was designed for (creating links in a PDF export), but once you create them and open the Bookmarks panel, you have a creative way to zip around your document.
