Day 1

Get up to speed quickly with InDesign’s interface, investigating the many panels used to format and arrange your artwork ie. Control, Info, Links, Layers, Align, Pages, Stroke, Swatches, Text Wrap, Tabs and Character and Paragraph Styles. Automation is also a focus, with key ways to set up and edit your documents for global changes and changing both document and application preferences.

Navigating your page(s) effectively and learning to use the appropriate tools is part of the first session. Other techniques learnt on day one include the following: creating, reshaping and positioning frames. Entering, editing and formatting text, importing images, resizing and manipulating. As part of the brochure exercise, a form is completed, using tabs and tab leaders.

Design considerations

The course also explains terminology and methods relating to good design habits relevant to page layout and typesetting.

Areas such as the importance of leading, tracking, kerning, correct typesetting (ie en, em dashes) and baseline shift controls, proportional spacing relating to margin and columns, line weights and using gradients and reversals, etc, are covered.

Day Two

Day two of the InDesign course, students produce a multiple page document which demonstrates the features that replace repetitive tasks, and are a must for effective editing, such as Master Pages, Auto Page Numbering, Character and Paragraph Styles, Find/ Change, Spell checking, Paragraph Rules, Hyphenation, Defining and applying colours and Text Frame options, etc.

The last session looks at preparing your document to send to your printer using the Preflight and Package commands, managing your fonts and linked images and exporting your document to various types of PDFs.
