Q. What are the top 10 new features in Adobe InDesign CS2?
A. Adobe InDesign CS2 is packed with new features, which are described in detail in Whats New in Adobe
InDesign CS2, which you can nd on www.adobe.com/indesign. The top 10 new features are:
Adobe Bridge Browse, organize, label, and preview graphics, as well as InDesign documents, templates, and
snippets. Drag and drop assets from Adobe Bridge into layouts more easily and eciently. Search for les using metadata, such as keywords, colors, and fonts used.
Object styles Apply and globally update object-level formatting more eciently using object styles. Save a
wide range of graphic, text, and frame-level attributes as object styles to create more consistent designs and speed up production tasks.
Control visibility of layers in Adobe Photoshop and PDF files Selectively display layers and layer comps in
Photoshop les, and layers in Adobe PDF les, to experiment with dierent design options or use multiple variations of a le in your layoutall while linking to a single le.
InDesign snippets Easily export InDesign objects as snippets, which can be shared with colleagues or reused
in other documents. When you place or drag a snippet into a layout, InDesign recreates the original objects, their formatting, and their relative positioning on the page.
Tighter integration with Adobe InCopy CS2 Collaborate more closely with editors through the new Adobe
InCopy CS2 LiveEdit workow, which enables designers and editors to work in parallel on an InDesign layout without overwriting each others changes. With the new assignments workow, you can break up access to documents among multiple editors by assigning only those elements that dierent editors need to work onwhether thats specic frames on a page, on one or more spreads, or across a document.
Ability to open InDesign CS2 files in InDesign CS Export your InDesign CS2 document to the InDesign Inter-
change format (INX) to share with people still working in InDesign CS. For more information, see page 7.

the positioning of anchored objects, apply text wrap settings, and more.

Smart text handling Drag and drop text within and between text frames, tables, views, and documents.
Automatically strip the original formatting from copy as you paste it, so that the pasted text will inherit the formatting applied at its new location. Preview fonts in WYSIWYG font menus.
Enhanced XML support Import XML les using enhanced import options, which give you exible control
and make it easier to achieve the results you want. Create a link to an XML le on import for easier updating. Apply XML tags to InDesign tables, and then import XML content into or export it from those tables. Q. What is Adobe Bridge? A. Adobe Bridge, which is included with the standalone version of InDesign CS2 and as a component of Adobe Creative Suite 2, is a visual le browser and a hub for productivity in both InDesign and the suite. You can run it independently or access it from within InDesign CS2, Illustrator CS2, Photoshop CS2, and GoLive CS2. Adobe Bridge allows you to eciently organize, browse, and locate the assets they need to create content for print, Web, and mobile. Adobe Bridge is also the primary interface for Version Cue CS2 le manager and includes access to the new Adobe Stock Photos service. (It is not available for purchase as a standalone product itself.) For more information, visit www.adobe.com/creativesuite.
Q. What is Adobe Stock Photos? A. Adobe Stock Photos, accessible from within Adobe Bridge, is an exciting new service that can help you get your creative ideas owing. Oering one-stop shopping for high-quality, royalty-free stock images for your creative work, Adobe Stock Photos is a convenient way for you to view, try, buy, and manage stock photos from some of the worlds leading image librariesor simply to get inspired. Q. Will Adobe continue to sell and support Adobe PageMaker software? As a PageMaker user, should I be thinking about switching to InDesign? A. Yes, Adobe continues to sell and support Adobe PageMaker software for business, education, and small- and home-oce professionals. However, we recommend that professional designers and production artists who uses PageMaker be sure to try InDesign CS2. InDesign is a natural upgrade choice for you because you can get up to speed quickly with familiar Adobe tools, open your library of PageMaker documents (versions 6.07.x) in InDesign, and experience a new level of design power and control. Adobe oers special upgrade pricing for PageMaker users who switch to InDesign. See page 5 for details. Q. What happened to the Adobe InDesign PageMaker Edition and the Adobe PageMaker Plug-in Pack? Why arent these products still available? A. Weve incorporated all of the functionality rst introduced in Adobe InDesign CS PageMaker Edition and the PageMaker Plug-in pack into InDesign CS2, so these separate products are no longer necessary. Both the InDesign CS PageMaker Edition and the PageMaker Plug-in Pack were originally created to help PageMaker users more easily make the switch to InDesign (users could either license the PageMaker Edition, or, if theyd already licensed InDesign CS, they could add on the PageMaker Plug-in Pack to make it match PageMaker Edition). Now InDesign CS2 includes these features as part of its core functionality, just for PageMaker users:
Q. What is Adobe InCopy and how is it relevant to InDesign users? A. Adobe InCopy CS2 software is a professional writing and editing program that integrates tightly with Adobe InDesign CS2 to deliver a complete solution for collaborative editorial workow. It is designed to scale to the needs of small, medium, and large content publishers. A version of InCopy is available directly from Adobe for small workgroups. Medium-to-large publishers can acquire powerful editorial solutions based on InCopy CS2 and InDesign CS2 from third-party developers and systems integrators. InCopy CS2 for small workgroups includes editorial workow technology that enables designers and editors to work on the same InDesign CS2 document simultaneously without interfering with each others work. InCopy CS2 gives editors 100% accurate information about line breaks and up-to-the-minute visual feedback about page design, so editors can copyt text with complete insight into how the copy and design interact. This support for parallel workows reduces the number of review and revision cycles, and ultimately streamlines the time it takes to get publications to market. It also puts copy-tting control back in the hands of editors who have more control over the integrity of their editorial content. For more information, see www.adobe.com/incopy. Q. How does InCopy CS2 dier from the Story Editor in InDesign CS2?
A. InCopy CS2 is a full editorial solution thats designed to support more ecient workgroup publishing
by giving designers and editors simultaneous access to the same InDesign layouts without fear of overwriting each others work. In addition, InCopy provides powerful customizable editorial tools and cross-media publishing support. In contrast, the Story Editor in InDesign provides excellent word-processing and copytting support for a single user working on an InDesign layout. Q. Why is InCopy CS2 only oered separately from Adobe Creative Suite 2?
A. Professional editors are the primary users of InCopy CS2 and generally dont require the full
functionality of Adobe Creative Suite 2, while the designers they work with do. As a result, it makes sense to oer InCopy and the suite separately. Designers can make full use of Adobe Creative Suite 2, while the editors they work with can easily integrate standalone InCopy CS2 with InDesign CS2 in a collaborative editorial workow. Q. What is Adobe InDesign CS2 Server and who uses it? A. Adobe InDesign Server CS2 is a new technology platform for third-party systems integrators and developers who build design-driven, server-based publishing solutions. It is the Adobe InDesign CS2 engine, with its innovative design and typography features, adapted for server usage. This server technology will enable Adobe partners to provide new levels of automation and eciency in high-end editorial workows, collateral creation, variable data publishing, and web-based design solutions. Adobe expects to launch a pilot program in the spring of 2005 to support an initial group of developers in designing and deploying customer solutions based on InDesign Server CS2. As a technology platform, InDesign Server will not be available directly from Adobe to end users but will instead be available to you through third parties who build and deliver a wide variety of publishing solutions. For more information, visit www.adobe.com/indesign. Q. What is product activation? A. Product activation is an interactive interpretation of the licensing agreement that has always existed between Adobe and its customers. The activation process authenticates licensed users without hindering their ability to use the software the way they have always done. It requires a series of simple, quick, anonymous steps upon product installation or within the grace period set by Adobe. Just as creative professionals use watermarks to protect their intellectual property, Adobe is using activation as a way to curtail unlicensed copying of its products. Adobes activation process is required on both Mac OS and Windows systems for standalone versions of InDesign CS2, Photoshop CS2, Illustrator CS2, GoLive CS2, and Acrobat 7.0 Professional, as well as for Adobe Creative Suite 2 Premium Edition and Standard Edition. For more information about activation, please see www.adobe.com/activation.

Support for Making the Switch to InDesign CS2
Q. Is InDesign CS2 easy to learn? A. Yesif you already know Photoshop and Illustrator, you can get up to speed quickly with InDesign CS2 just by applying that knowledge. In addition, you can nd help mastering InDesign basics with Adobe InDesign CS2 Video Workshop, a free training CD created by Total Training (www.totaltraining.com) and included with all versions of InDesignRetail, Upgrade, Education, and PageMaker Upgrade. (Adobe Creative Suite 2 users: See the Adobe Creative Suite 2 Video Workshop CD for similar hands-on training.) Q. Whats available to help QuarkXPress users make the switch to InDesign CS2? A. Yes. You can, for example, switch the keyboard shortcuts in InDesign CS2 to match the ones in QuarkXPress using the Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts command. You can also open QuarkXPress 3.34.x les directly using the File > Open command. InDesign is able to map QuarkXPress layout elements to InDesign equivalents to preserve the look and feel of documents as closely as possible. An in-depth conversion guide for switching from QuarkXPress to InDesign is also available on the Adobe Web site at www.adobe.com/indesign.
Q. Whats available to help PageMaker users make the switch to InDesign CS2? A. InDesign CS2 is a natural upgrade choice for PageMaker users, delivering innovative design and layout features that help you work smarter and faster on the latest Windows and Macintosh operating systems. Its also designed to help you make the transition from PageMaker to InDesign as smoothly and rapidly as possible. You can, for example, apply what you know about PageMaker, Illustrator, and Photoshop to learning InDesign, which shares the common Adobe interface. You can switch the keyboard shortcuts InDesign to match those in PageMaker, so you dont have to teach your ngers new tricks. You can open PageMaker 6.07.x les as InDesign documents. And you can take advantage of InDesign features that address the needs of PageMaker users, including Story Editor, Control palette, data merge, automated bullets and numbering, InBooklet SE for imposition, and a PageMaker toolbar. In-depth conversion information is also available on the Adobe Web site at www.adobe.com/indesign. Q. Is it possible to convert QuarkXPress 5.06.5 documents to InDesign CS2 format? A. It is our understanding that Quark has chosen to encrypt the XPress 5.0 and 6.0 le formats. Because of this decision, InDesign CS2 cannot directly open and convert XPress 5.0 and 6.0 les. By contrast, the InDesign le format is not encrypted, so it better supports and adapts to a wide variety of workows.
Mac OS users: We know of one solution for converting your XPress 5.06.5 documents to InDesign. A
third-party plug-in developer, MarkzWare (www.markzware.com), produces MarkzTools 5.5, a plug-in to QuarkXPress 4.x and 5.x for the Mac that can open your XPress 6.x les and save them back to XPress 4.x format. You can then open those les in Adobe InDesign CS, which is able to convert les from XPress 3.34.x. Please note that new XPress 6.0 features may not be supported when you save backwards to QuarkXPress 4.x format.
Windows users: Unfortunately, there are no solutions available at this time for Windows users of XPress 5.0 or 6.0 to move their les to InDesign. Should any options become available in the future, we will provide information about those solutions on the Adobe website at www.adobe.com/indesign.
Q. Quark oers free technical support in all English-speaking countries. Why doesnt Adobe provide free technical support for InDesign? A. All registered users of current Adobe desktop products are eligible for complimentary, person-to-person support on issues related to installation and product defects, including crashes and errors. For more information about Adobes complimentary support, visit www.adobe.com/support/cfcomp.html. Adobe customers also have online access to Frequently Asked Support questions, the Support Knowledgebase, and online forums, where they can nd answers to a wide range of product questions. In addition, Adobe oers Adobe Expert Support, a trio of paid support packages that: address the dierent technical needs of our creative professional and business customers by oering alternatives instead of a one-size-ts-all approach to technical support. deliver extended evening and weekend hours. provide access to Adobe experts who are trained in how Adobe products work together. With these oerings, customers can eliminate the time it takes to research in-depth issues, and instead get fast, priority access to Adobe experts for a reasonable fee. Providing high-quality support is expensive, and users end up paying for it one way or another. Many of our customers are self sucient or have excellent in-house Help Desk services, so rolling support costs into product costs unfairly requires some customers to subsidize others. A pay-for-your-need approach enables us to provide the best quality support in a way that balances the interests of all of our customers.
Q. Can I save InDesign CS2 les in a format that can open in InDesign CS? A. Yes, you can. When you want to exchange InDesign CS2 les with someone who is still working in InDesign CS, you can export the le to InDesign Interchange (INX) format. Just choose File > Export, select the InDesign Interchange Format, and then click Save. A designer using InDesign CS can then open the le as long as theyve installed an update to InDesign CS called InDesign 3.0.1 April 2005 (Compatibility Upgrade). This update is available free of charge on the Adobe website: Visit www.adobe.com/indesign or go to the Downloads area at www.adobe.com/support/downloads. Note that some changes to your document may occur because InDesign CS does not support all of the new features in InDesign CS2.
Note about whats happening behind the scenes The INX le preserves the content and geometry of the
original InDesign CS2 le. When the INX le is opened in InDesign CS, it is read by the InDesign scripting engine which uses the data to accurately recreate the le (minus any InDesign CS2 data that isnt supported by InDesign CS). Q. How do I nd service providers who are experienced at printing InDesign les? A. Visit partners.adobe.com/asn/partnernder. Then click Search for an ASN Service Provider, ll out the online form, and click Search. The Adobe Partner Finder enables you to search by product and metropolitan area to locate the InDesign printing support you need. If you do not nd the service provider you need, you can e-mail Adobe for help. You can even request that Adobe provide information to your current service provider about how to work with InDesign les (we have comprehensive training information available). Q. How do I get my service provider business listed in the Adobe Partner Finder? A. If youre a service provider who outputs InDesign les and youre not registered in the Adobe Partner Finder, visit partners.adobe.com/asn/partnernder today to register your services with us free of charge. Its an easy, cost-eective way to connect with InDesign and other Adobe product customers in your area. Q. Where do I nd trainers who will train on InDesign? A. Many of Adobes ASN Training Providers support InDesign. Just visit partners.adobe.com/asn/partnernder. Then click Search for an ASN Training Provider, ll out the online form, and click Search. Q.

Plug-ins for Adobe InDesign CS2
Q. Can you extend the capabilities in InDesign the way you can with Quark XTensions? A. Absolutely. InDesign is extensible by design. In fact, it epitomizes the modern, modular, object-oriented approach to programming that has evolved since QuarkXPress and PageMaker were rst developed. Adobe InDesign provides a core application that denes both the object model and the interfaces that determine how objects behave. All of its type, color, printing, and other features are provided through plug-ins to this core application. Virtually every aspect of the program is a plug-in, giving third-party developers extraordinary freedom in modifying InDesign and adding customized functionality. You can locate commercially available plug-ins, contract with freelance developers to create custom solutions, or have your IT department develop any custom tools you need. To locate commercially available plug-ins, visit the Adobe Web site at www.adobe.com/products/plugins/indesign/main.html. To nd a thirdparty developer, visit the Adobe Partner Finder at www.adobe.com/asn/partnernder. Q. Why are there more XTensions for QuarkXPress than there are plug-ins for InDesign?
A. Adobe InDesign has a lot of features built in that are available in QuarkXPress only through retail or
shareware XTensions, so InDesign has less need for additional plug-ins. Q. What plug-ins will be available for Adobe InDesign CS2? A. Were working with a variety of third-party developers to update or create new custom plug-ins for InDesign CS2. Information about specic plug-ins for InDesign CS2 will be available at www.adobe.com/ products/plugins/indesign/main.html after the product ships. Q. I want to develop plug-ins for Adobe InDesign CS2. Where do I start? A. The Adobe Solutions Network (ASN) provides developers with high-quality tools, information, and services to help you create plug-ins for InDesign and other Adobe products. We encourage developers to join ASN to receive timely product information, developer support, and access to prerelease software. ASN also oers developers the opportunity to participate in co-marketing activities. In addition, we host developer camps in the United States, Europe, and Japan to share information about new APIs, review SDK documentation, and oer engineering assistance. While we encourage ASN membership, we do not require it for you to take advantage of in-depth technical information for developers. Approved developers can also receive Adobe Software Development Kits (SDKs) and Technical Notes. For more information, visit the ASN website at partners.adobe.com/asn/developer/main.html.
Q. In which languages will Adobe InDesign CS2 be available? A. In addition to Universal English, Adobe InDesign CS2 will be available in these languages: Brazilian Portuguese, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Spanish, and Swedish. It is also available for the rst time in Traditional and Simplied Chinese and in Korean.
Note Winsoft is expected to release Central European (CE) and Middle Eastern (ME) versions of InDesign
CS2. For more details, visit the WinSoft website at www.winsoft.fr. Q. Are language dictionaries included with Adobe InDesign CS2?
A. Yes. InDesign comes with 28 Proximity dictionaries for the following languages: Catalan, Czech*, Danish,
Dutch, English (Canadian*, UK, USA, USA Legal, and USA Medical), Finnish, French, French Canadian, German (Reformed, Swiss, and Traditional), Greek*, Hungarian*, Italian, Norwegian (Bokmal and Nynorsk), Polish*, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian*, Slovak*, Spanish: Castilian, Swedish, and Turkish*. (Languages marked with an asterisk have been newly added to InDesign CS2.) Q. Do I need to buy something extra to work on documents in dierent languages? A. No. You can easily open and work with les produced in any language version of InDesign, including Japanese, in any other language version of InDesign. So, for example, you could open an Italian document in a German version of InDesign, or a Japanese document in an English version of InDesign (see the page 11 for more details about opening Japanese documents in a Roman language version). In addition, because of the built-in dictionaries, you can easily associate a language with a character, a word, a paragraph, or a
lengthy piece of text; or you can specify a language as part of a character or paragraph style. Adobe InDesign then uses the appropriate language for spell checking and hyphenation. When you send the document to a colleague, client, or service provider, the language dictionaries are embedded with the le so the hyphenation remains consistent on dierent systems. Q. How does InDesign dier from other page layout applications in its support for Japanese typography and layout? A. Adobe InDesign is designed for professional Japanese publishing, delivering true Japanese page layout and exacting typographical control on the desktop. In the past, Roman page layout applications have made few accommodations to the precision of Japanese design. For example, all localized versions of Roman page layout software have included built-in Japanese type controls, but these controls have been completely inadequate because the underlying typesetting metaphor is dierent. In Roman software, type is laid out on a baseline. Japanese text, on the other hand, has no concept of a baseline and instead positions text in relation to its center point. Because InDesign is easy to customize, we could easily replace the Western-oriented type engine with one that supports high-quality Japanese typography. We could also extend the page layout functionality to support a real Japanese page design workow. Here are a few of the key InDesign features that support Japanese publishing: Japanese layout gridsMaintain a traditional Japanese layout workow by dening character-based page grids for precisely positioning objects and text frames. Then save them as templates. Frame grids and frame directionUse frame grids with text to precisely position text based on Japanese font metriCS2. Set up frame grids with a horizontal or vertical orientation, and switch directions at any time. Also display the character count for any frame grid, and track how many characters are overowing it. MojikumiCreate and edit customized character-spacing rule sets using exible controls. Or, select predened sets of character-spacing rules. Measurement systemsSpecify or convert measurements with unparalleled accuracy, whether youre working in millimeters, Ha and Kyu, traditional Western points and picas, or other measurement systems. Customizable typographical controlsUse, create, or edit Kinsoku Shori rules. Combine dierent fonts into a single composite font. Easily set Ruby and Kenten. Select vertical characters and quickly change their orientation to horizontal with automated Tate-chu-yoko controls. Edit Japanese hanging punctuation rules to suit your designs. Q. Will a Japanese version of Adobe InCopy CS2 be available? A. Yes, Adobe will be introducing a Japanese version of InCopy CS2. This professional writing and editing program will integrate tightly with the Japanese version of InDesign CS2, empowering designers and editors to work in parallel on the same design document. InCopy CS2 fully supports Japanese typography, including SING Gaiji glyphlets used in an InDesign layout, so editors can work with 100% accurate information as they write, edit, and copyt text. In addition, InCopy provides highly productive editorial tools to help editors prepare copy more eciently for publication. Together, InCopy CS2 and InDesign CS2 introduce a revolutionary new collaborative editorial workow to professional Japanese publishing. Q. What is Adobe SING Gaiji and how does it work with Adobe applications? A. High-quality Chinese, Japanese, and Korean (CJK) typography requires an open-ended class of Chinesederived characters. Dierent CJK fonts provide a core selection of these characters as part of their standard character set. However, publishers often need supplemental glyphs or characters that are known as gaiji. Gaiji is a Japanese word that refers to any glyph thats valid in your written language but is not in the font you are using. The Adobe SING architecture enables you to extend your CJK fonts with individual new glyphlets, representing variant glyph shapes or symbols. These glyphlets are embedded in documents. This means that anyone at any point in the workow can edit documents using the embedded glyphlets without having to install them on their system. The SING architecture solves a critical layout problem, so designers and publishers can take advantage of the power and cost-eectiveness of desktop design systems without sacricing typographic exibility. The SING architecture also opens opportunities for font, IME, and other developers.
For years, proprietary CJK publishing systems have had an edge over desktop systems because of the quality of their typography and the ease with which they could create and manage gaiji characters. Adobe and other industry leaders addressed many CJK typography requirements with the introduction of Unicode support and the OpenType font standard. Adobe also built robust support for Japanese typography into Japanese versions of InDesign, InCopy, Illustrator, and other Adobe products. Now built-in support for Adobe SING Gaiji rounds out the requirements for achieving high-quality Japanese typography on the desktop. Q. Can the Roman and Japanese versions of InDesign share les? A. Yes. As noted previously in this document, the Roman and Japanese versions of Adobe InDesign CS2 share a common le format, so you can open and modify Japanese layouts in Roman versions of InDesign CS2 and Roman les in a Japanese version of InDesign CS2. However, the Roman versions of InDesign CS2 do not have the typographical, layout grid, and frame grid tools for editing Japanese text that are available in the Japanese version.

Switching from Adobe PageMaker to Adobe InDesign CS2
TABLE OF CONTENTS 4 Section 1: Getting Started with InDesign CS2
Congratulations! If youre reading this document, its because youve made the switch or are thinking about making the switchfrom Adobe PageMaker software to Adobe InDesign CS2 software. As a PageMaker user, youve probably invested many hours developing your expertise, and the thought of learning a new page layout program may at first seem daunting. However, InDesign CS2 makes it easy to make a quick and smooth transition by including several familiar PageMaker features among the many powerful features available in InDesign CS2. This document helps ease the transition to get you quickly up to speed. The main focus is on key differences between the two programs. The 12 sections that follow are arranged in the way you would learn and use any page layout programsetting program preferences, opening documents, creating and modifying text and graphic objects, building pages and documents, and finally printing and exporting documents. If you need more detailed information about InDesign CS2, refer to the online help file (Help > InDesign Help). Benefits of InDesign CS2 If you havent had a chance to check out InDesign CS2, youre in for a pleasant surprise. InDesign CS2 offers several compelling advantages, not only over PageMaker, but also over all other page layout programs. Benefits of switching to InDesign CS2 include: InDesign CS2 is tightly integrated with Adobe Photoshop CS2, Adobe Illustrator CS2, Adobe Acrobat 7, Adobe GoLive CS2, and Adobe InCopy CS2 software, so you can quickly get up to speed with InDesign CS2 and then can work more efficiently with the other creative applications you use every day. It also includes Adobe Bridge, the new file management hub for all Adobe Creative Suite 2 components. InDesign CS2 offers sophisticated typographic features, including optical kerning, optical margin alignment, nested paragraph styles, paragraph-based text composition for improved hyphenation and justification, and full support for OpenType fonts. InDesign CS2 offers several creative features that arent available in PageMaker. These features include transparency effects, such as drop shadows and blending modes; type on a path; object styles; character styles; nested frames; multicolor gradients; custom line styles; and built-in corner styles and arrowheads. InDesign CS2 lets you directly export Adobe PDF files without having to go through Acrobat Distillerin fact, you dont need Distiller or an installed PostScript driver. In addition, PDF files exported from InDesign CS2 can contain prepress or interactivity information that cant be included in PDF files created from PageMaker. The multiple undo feature in InDesign CS2 lets you undo a virtually unlimited number of steps (depending on available RAM), which means you can design with complete freedom. InDesign CS2 was developed from the ground up using modern modular software design and development techniques.

PageMaker Features in InDesign CS2 PageMaker users will find several features in InDesign CS2 that are designed to help PageMaker users make an easy transition to InDesign. These features include: Publication conversion for PageMaker files. InDesign CS2 can convert document and template files from PageMaker 6.0-7.x, and in some cases you can even fix damaged PageMaker files (with limitations). (For more information about opening PageMaker files with InDesign CS2, see Section 2: Converting PageMaker Publications on page 13.) PageMaker keyboard shortcuts. If youre like most designers, youve invested considerable time in learning keyboard shortcuts that help you work as rapidly as possible. The last thing you want to do is learn a whole new set of shortcuts. Thats why you can switch the keyboard shortcuts in InDesign CS2 to match the familiar shortcuts in PageMaker 7.0. In addition, InDesign CS2 lets you edit shortcuts for practically every tool and command, which means you can customize InDesign CS2 to work just the way you want. To switch to PageMaker keyboard shortcuts, choose Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts, and then choose Shortcuts For PageMaker 7.0 from the Sets menu. ALAP InBooklet SE. One of the most popular cant live without it features in PageMaker is the Build Booklet command, which lets you automatically rearrange the pages in a document so that they will fall in the correct sequence after being printed, folded, trimmed, and bounda task known as imposition. InDesign CS2 offers similar functionality through the ALAP InBooklet Special Edition plug-in. (See Printing printer spreads with InBooklet SE on page 62.) Automatic bulleted lists and numbered lists. Bulleted and numbered lists are common design elements that authors use to organize information and make it easier for their readers to skim. The Bulleted List or Numbered List icons on the PageMaker toolbar (Window > PageMaker Toolbar) let you quickly create lists. If you subsequently change a listfor example, by inserting another itemInDesign CS2 automatically renumbers the entire list. The Bulleted List and Numbered List icons are also available in the Control palette when paragraph formatting controls are displayed. (See Creating bulleted lists and numbered lists on page 29.) Data Merge palette. The Data Merge palette (Window > Automation > Data Merge) lets you quickly create customized publications, such as catalogs, direct mail campaigns, business cards, form letters, and mailing labels, by using text and image data that is saved in a data source file. The powerful typographic and page layout features in InDesign CS2 combined with the Data Merge palette let you automate simple customization of design-intensive documents. Position tool. The Position tool, which is paired with the Direct Selection tool in the toolbox, is similar to the Crop tool in PageMaker. This tool eliminates the need to switch between the Selection and Direct Selection tools to resize and move graphics and their frames or to reposition graphics in relation to frames. PageMaker toolbar. The PageMaker toolbar (Window > PageMaker Toolbar) is similar to toolbars used in Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft Word and gives both Mac OS and Windows users easy access to commonly used commands, such as New Document, Open Document, Save, Print, Find/Change, Insert Pages, Remove Pages, Text Frame Options, Place, and Update Links. Learning InDesign CS2 The longer youve been a PageMaker user, the more ingrained your knowledge and work habits have become. Its natural to think that retooling your skills for another page layout program is a formidable task. Dont worry. PageMaker and InDesign CS2 share many shortcuts, commands, palettes, and approaches to common page layout tasks. Some of the reasons PageMaker users will feel right at home in InDesign CS2 include: InDesign CS2 and PageMaker use the common Adobe user interface. Tabbed palettes contain most of the controls you use to format text and modify objects. In addition, some palettes, such as the Layers palette, work similarly in InDesign CS2 and PageMaker, and many of the common keyboard shortcuts, such as Ctrl+D (Windows) or Command+D (Mac OS) for the Place command, are shared between the two applications.
Section 3: Setting Up Documents
After you open a new document, youll probably want to do some initial setup work before you begin adding text and graphics and laying out pages. For example, if youre creating a newsletter and you want to use different page layouts, your first task is to adjust the columns and margins on one of the pages. If youre creating a longer document, such as a newspaper, magazine, or catalog, youll want to build a master page or even multiple master pages, so that you can quickly add new formatted pages and choose among different page layouts. And if youll be working on longer documents, knowing how to navigate quickly between pages is crucial. In this section, youll learn several basic setup tasks and how to navigate within a document. Setting up margins, columns, and guides Most designers use guidelines to help them place and align objects on a page. Both PageMaker and InDesign CS2 automatically display guidelines for margins and columns and let you add custom guidelines by dragging guides from the rulers and by building custom guide sets. Setting margins When you create a new document, both PageMaker and InDesign CS2 allow you to specify margin settings in the New Document dialog box (File > New > Document). InDesign CS2 also lets you specify column settings (the number of columns and gutter width) when creating a new document, while in PageMaker you use the Column Guides dialog box (Layout > Column Guides) to specify column settings.
You can specify the default margin settings for a new document in the New Document dialog box (File > New > Document).
You can specify default settings for selected pages in the Margins and Columns dialog box (Layout > Margins and Columns).
To change margin settings in PageMaker, you use the Document Setup dialog box. Any changes you make are applied to the document master pages and all document pages that are based on the document master page. In InDesign CS2, you use the Margins and Columns dialog box to change margin settings for a document, and any changes you make are applied only to the pages selected in the Pages palette (Window > Pages). For more information about the Pages palette, see Working with master pages on page 18.
The Layers palette (Window > Layers) lets you add document-wide layers and show or hide individual layers.
As in PageMaker, layers in InDesign CS2 documents involve all pages of a document, including masters. For example, if you hide Layer 1 while editing page 1 of your document, the layer is hidden on all pages until you show it again. Working with master pages Just as in PageMaker, master pages in InDesign CS2 can contain ruler guides, page-number markers, logos, or any other objects you want to add to multiple pages in a document. You create, delete, and apply master pages in InDesign CS2 by using the Pages palette (Window > Pages). As in PageMaker, new documents in InDesign CS2 include a document master thats given the default name A-Master. In PageMaker, you display the document master by clicking the left or right master page iconsat the bottom of the document window. In InDesign CS2, the document master is displayed in the Pages palette. Unlike PageMaker, InDesign CS2 also includes a choice for no master, called [None], in the Pages palette. In PageMaker, you use the Master Pages palette to create and apply master pages, while InDesign CS2 master page controls are in the Pages palette. Many of the controls for working with master pages are the same in both programs, but InDesign CS2 has some useful master page features that arent available in PageMaker. Here are a few: Basing one master page on another You create a new master page in InDesign CS2 by choosing New Master from the Pages palette menu. The Based On Master menu in the New Master dialog box lets you base a new master on an existing master page, much as you base a paragraph style on another paragraph style. So, if youre creating a newsletter and you want to use two-column, three-column, and four-column layouts, you can create a parent master page with all of the repeating elementspage numbers, headers, footers, folios, etc.and then create child master pages with different column settings. If you change the parent master page, all other master pages based on it are automatically updated.
Use the Navigator palette (Window > Object & Layout > Navigator) to navigate among pages or within a page.
Section 4: Working with Frames
In PageMaker, frames are optionalyou can place text and graphics within frames, or text blocks and imported graphics can stand alone (that is, text and graphic objects can exist without frames). In InDesign CS2, you place all text and imported graphics within frames. While this might sound like a small difference, it has a big impact on the way you select, resize, move, and crop graphics in InDesign CS2. Paths versus frames The drawing tools in PageMaker and InDesign CS2 let you create objects and use them without content as graphic elements or as containers for text and graphics. You can also create frames in InDesign CS2 by simply placing or pasting content into a path. In InDesign CS2, objects without any content are called paths, while objects that contain text or a graphic are called text frames and graphics frames, respectively. A frame can also exist as a placeholdera container without contents. For example, a rectangle created with the Rectangle tool does not include a placeholder X, but a rectangle drawn by using the Rectangle Frame tool does include a placeholder X. As containers and placeholders, InDesign frames are the basic building blocks for a documents layout.
Different types of frames. With InDesign, you can make any object a frame, and you can easily change the content of a frame. 1a and 2a show frames created with the Pen tool and by converting text to a path. In 1b and 2b, text and graphics have been placed into the resulting frames. In 1c and 2c, the type of content has been switched.
Because a frame is simply a container version of a path, you can do anything to a frame that you can do to a path, such as add a color or a gradient to its fill or stroke or change the shape of the frame with the Direct Selection tool or the Pen tools. You can even convert a frame to a path (by removing its content) or vice versa (by adding content). This flexibility makes it easy to change your mind and provides a wide range of design choices.
Switching from PageMaker to InDesign CS2 21
A few things to keep in mind about paths and frames: Paths are vector graphics like those you create in a drawing program, such as Adobe Illustrator. A path can be closed, such as a rectangle or a polygon, or open, such as a curved or straight line. Because a path doesnt contain text or a graphic (although a path can contain a solid or gradient fill), its content is unassigned. Frames are identical to paths with only one differenceframes can be containers for text, graphics, or other objects. A frame can also exist as a placeholder.
Different types of InDesign CS2 frames. Left: unassigned frame. Center: text frame. Right: graphics frame
Creating frames The tools in InDesign CS2 let you create three types of frames: unassigned frames, text frames, and graphics frames. An unassigned frame (that is, a path) has no content. When you create an object with the Rectangle, Oval, Polygon, Pen, or Pencil tool, by default the object contains no content and is called an unassigned frame. The Content commandsGraphic, Text, and Unassignedin the Object menu (Object > Content) let you change the content associated with a frame. Note that you can change the content of text or graphics frames only if they are empty. A text frame determines the area to be occupied by text and how text flows through the layout. You can recognize text frames by the in and out ports in their respective upper left and lower right corners. You can create a text frame by dragging with the Type tool or by clicking within a path or an empty graphics frame when the Type tool is selected. If you select the Master Text Frame checkbox in the New Document dialog box, a text frame is automatically added to the documents default master page and to all document pages based on the default master page. A graphics frame can function as a border and background, and it can crop or mask a graphic. When acting as an empty placeholder, a graphics frame displays an X. If you dont see the X inside an empty graphics frame, the display of frame edges may be turned off (View > Show/ Hide Frame Edges). You can create a graphics frame with the Rectangle Frame, Oval Frame, and Polygon frame tools. Placing content into a frame When you use the Place command to import a graphic or text file, you can either place the imported content into an existing frame, or you can create a new frame on the fly. When you place a graphic, the current selection determines where it is placed: If a graphics frame is selected, the graphic is placed within the frame. If the graphics frame already contains a graphic, the graphic is replaced if Replace Selected Item is selected in the Place dialog box. If you dont select this option, a loaded graphics icon is displayed. You can click the loaded graphics icon to create a new graphics frame thats the same size as the imported graphic, or you can click and drag the loaded graphics icon to create a new frame thats the size of the rectangle you drag. If the text insertion point is flashing, the graphic is placed at the insertion point as an anchored graphic. If any other object is selected or if nothing is selected, a loaded graphics icon is displayed when you click Open in the Place dialog box. If nothing is selected, you can click the loaded graphics icon within an empty graphics frame or click an unassigned frame to place the graphic within the frame.
Switching from PageMaker to InDesign CS2 22
Similarly, when you place a text file, you can place the text into an existing frame or create a new one. The current selection determines where the text is placed: If the text insertion point is flashing, the imported text is inserted at the text insertion point. If text is highlighted, the imported text replaces the highlighted text if Replace Selected Item is selected in the Place dialog box. If this option is not selected, the loaded text icon is displayed. You can click or drag the loaded text icon to flow text onto your pages. For more information, see Flowing text on pages 26. If an object is selected or if nothing is selected, a loaded text icon is displayed when you click Open in the Place dialog box. You can click or drag the loaded text icon to flow text onto your pages. Selecting and modifying frames and graphics To select a frame in InDesign CS2, choose the Selection tool, and then click within the frame. To select an unassigned, colorless frame, you must click the edge of the frame. To select a master text frame on a document page, hold down Ctrl+Shift (Windows) or Command+Shift (Mac OS) and click within the frame. To select a graphic within a graphics frame, select the Direct Selection tool or the Position tool, and then click the graphic. Here are a few tips for modifying frames and graphics within frames: Dragging a frame handle with the Selection tool resizes the frame, but not the graphic inside. To transform both the frame and its contents, make sure Transform Content is selected in the Transform palette menu (Window > Transform) and use the Scale toolor hold down Ctrl (Windows) or Command (Mac OS) while dragging a frame handle with the Selection tool. Also hold down the Shift key to maintain the proportions of the frame and content as you drag. To change the shape of a frame, use the Direct Selection tool to select it, and then drag any of the frames handles. Use the Pen tools to add and delete anchor points. To modify a graphic without affecting its frame, use the Direct Selection tool to select the graphic, and then drag any of its handles to resize it. Use the transform tools, the Transform palette (Window > Object & Layout > Transform), or the Transform commands in the Object menu to move, scale, rotate, or shear the graphic. The frame acts as a window through which you view the graphic. The parts of the graphic that are outside the frame are cropped and do not appear in the layout. If you pause before dragging a graphic, InDesign displays a ghosted preview of the cropped area so you can more easily adjust whats visible within the graphics frame. To move a graphic within a frame, to resize a graphic without affecting the frame, or to change the size of the frame, use the Position tool. The Position tool functions similarly to the Crop tool in PageMaker. You can resize a graphic and its frame at the same time by selecting the frame with the Selection tool, and then changing values in the Horizontal and Vertical Scale fields in the Control palette or the Transform palette. Before resizing, make sure Transform Content is selected in the palettes menu. You can add a stroke to a frame to create a keyline around a graphic or a border around text. To add a stroke, make sure the Stroke icon is selected in the toolbox, the Swatches palette (Window > Swatches), or the Color palette (Window > Color), and then use the Control palette or the Stroke palette (Window > Stroke) to specify the width of the stroke and the stroke style. Use the Swatches palette, the Color palette, or the Gradient palette (Window > Gradient) to apply color to a stroke. You can use the Paste Into command (Edit menu) to paste a copied object or group into a path. The path into which you paste the copied object acts as a clipping path for the pasted object or group. The pasted object/group is said to be nested within the path. You can use the Object > Fitting commands to center a graphic within a frame. The fitting options are: Fit Content To Frame, Fit Frame To Content, Center Content, Fit Content Proportionally, and Fill Frame Proportionally.
Threading and unthreading text frames PageMaker is like InDesign CS2 in that the text in a frame can be independent of other frames, or it can be part of a linked sequence of frames. Linked frames can be on the same page or spread, or on any other page in the document. In both programs, the process of flowing text through multiple frames is called threading text. In InDesign CS2, each text frame contains an in port and an out port, which are used to make connections to other text frames. An empty in port or out port indicates the beginning or end of a story, respectively. An arrow in a port indicates that the frame is linked to another frame. A red plus sign (+) in an out port indicates that there is more text in the story but no more frames in which to place it. This remaining unseen text is called overset text.
When you choose Show Text Threads (View menu), InDesign CS2 shows how threaded text frames are connected.
Creating threaded text frames When you add or remove text in a threaded story, the text flows through existing frames as necessary. You may need to resize the last frame or create a new frame so that all of the text is visible. When working with text threads, keep the following in mind: You can show text threads by selecting View > Show Text Threads and by using the Selection or Direct Selection tool to select any threaded text frame. If you want to see threads from different stories at the same time, use Shift+click to select a frame in each story. To turn off display of text threads, choose View> Hide Text Threads. When the loaded text icon is active, you can perform many actions, including navigating to a different page, creating new pages, and zooming in and out. If you start to thread two frames and change your mind, you can cancel the thread by clicking any tool in the toolbox. No text is lost. You can thread text frames whether or not they contain text. You can also add automatic continued on or continued from lines that track threaded stories as they jump from frame to frame. You have several options for adding text frames to threads. Connecting existing frames. To connect two frames, click the out port of the frame you want to be first in the thread, and then click within the second frame. Adding a new frame to a thread. To create a new frame and add it to a thread, choose the Selection tool, select a text frame, and then click the in port or out port to load a text icon. Clicking the in port lets you add a frame before the selected frame; clicking the out port lets you add a frame after the selected frame. Position the loaded text icon where you want a new text frame to appear, and then click or drag to create a new text frame.
Use the New Character Style menu (Character Styles palette menu > New Character Style) to create character styles for quickly applying a set of character attributes.
Use the New Paragraph Style menu (Paragraph Styles palette menu > New Paragraph Style) to create paragraph styles for quickly applying a set of paragraph attributes.
Using nested styles InDesign CS2 lets you create nested styles that specify character-level formatting for one or more ranges of text within a paragraph. You can also set up two or more nested styles to work together, one taking over where the previous one ends. Nested styles are especially useful for creating runin headings at the beginning of a paragraph and other complex formatting tasks. For example, you can apply one character style to the first letter in a paragraph (say, a drop cap) and another character style that takes effect through the first colon (:). For each nested style, you can define a character that ends the style, such as a tab character or the end of a word.
This Run-in text was formatted by applying a paragraph style that includes a nested style. You can also set up two or more nested styles to work together, one taking over where the previous one ends. Nested styles are especially useful for run-in headings. For example, you can apply one character style to the first letter in a paragraph and another character style that takes effect through the first three words.
The Drop Cap and Nested Styles panel of the Paragraph Style Options dialog box (Paragraph Styles palette menu > New Paragraph Style or Style Options) lets you assign a character style to drop caps and nested styles.
To create a nested style, you must first create the character style you want to nest in a paragraph or paragraph style. After youve created the character style, you associate it with a nested style by using the Drop Caps And Nested Styles command in the Paragraph palette menu or the Drop Caps And Nested Styles panel in the Paragraph Style Options dialog box and select your settings. To display the Paragraph Style Options dialog box, select New Paragraph Style from the Paragraph Styles menu or double-click an existing paragraph style. Using object styles Object styles work similarly to paragraph and character styles. An object style is a saved set of object-level attributes that you can apply over and over again. Using object styles lets you format even complex objects in a single step. The attributes available for object styles are Fill, Stroke, Stroke & Corner Effects, Transparency, Drop Shadow And Feather, Paragraph Styles, Text Frame General Options, Text Frame Baseline Options, Story Options, Test Wrap & Other, and Anchored Object Options.
Switching from PageMaker to InDesign CS2 38
Object styles have many uses. For example, if the publications you create often include sidebars within stroked text frames, you can set up an object style that specifies the width, style, and color of the stroke, as well as text insets. Each time you need a sidebar frame, you can simply create a rectangular object and then apply your object style. Other benefits of object styles include the ability to build libraries of object styles, the option to import object styles from other documents, and the ability to modify an object formatted with an object style and then redefine the style and update all objects to which its applied You create an object style much as you would a character or paragraph style. You can begin by modifying an object, selecting the object, and then choosing New Object Style from the Object Styles palette menu (Window > Object Styles). If an object is selected when you create a new object style, the properties of the selected object are displayed in the Object Style Options dialog box. You can also create an object style from scratch by choosing New Object Style from the Object Styles palette menu with no object selected. In the various panes of the Object Style Options dialog box, specify the properties you want to assign to the object style. For example, you can apply a stroke and a corner effect, transparency attributes (blending mode and opacity), drop shadow settings, text frame attributes (such as columns, gutters, and text insets), and text wrap attributes.
Using object styles makes it easy to globally change object formatting in an InDesign layout. When you modify an object style, all objects to which the style is applied are automatically updated.
In addition to creating object styles, you can set the default style applied to the drawing tools. To set the default style applied to new text frames, drag the text frame icon (the square box with a T within) displayed on the right side of the Object Styles palette list to the object style you want to use. The next time you create a text frame with the Type tool, the object style that has the text frame icon will be used. To set the default style applied to new graphic frames created with the Rectangle tool, the Ellipse tool, or the Polygon tool, drag the graphics frame icon (the empty square) displayed on the right side of the Object Styles palette to the object style you want to use. The next time you create a new frame with the Rectangle, Ellipse, or Polygon tool, the object style that has the graphics frame icon will be used. The options available for object styles are similar to those available for character and paragraph styles. For example, you can change an object style by choosing Redefine Object Style after manually modifying an object thats been styled using an object style, and you can break the link between an object and the object style used to format it. You can also use the Load Object Style command in the Object Styles palette menu to import object styles from other InDesign documents.
Its easy to drag and drop assets from Bridge (shown here in Compact mode) into an InDesign layout.
Additional features of Adobe Bridge In addition to browsing assets for quick and easy placement into InDesign layouts, you can use Bridge for a variety of other purposes: Display files in a number of different views. The View menu in Bridge offers several options for viewing files: Thumbnails view displays a grid of preview images with minimal file information; Filmstrip view displays an enlarged view of the selected asset and a filmstrip-like view of other assets; Details view displays a list of thumbnails with detailed file information; and Versions And Alternates View displays a list of assets with any available alternates (if youre using a Version Cue file management workflow). The View menu also includes commands for showing and hiding the five available panelsFavorites, Folders, Preview, Metadata, and Keywords and you can display all files, only graphic files, only camera raw files, or only vector files.
Bridge provides several options for viewing the files on your computer. In this example, files are displayed as thumbnails. When you display thumbnails, you can control the size of the thumbnail preview.
View and add metadata to files. Metadata, or information about files, is descriptive information that can be searched and processed. By default, InDesign CS2 and its sister applications, Illustrator CS2, Photoshop CS2, GoLive CS2, and Acrobat 7.0 Professional, embed eXtensible Metadata Platform (XMP) metadata into all of their associated documents to describe some of the attributes of those documents. For example, InDesign CS2 automatically embeds information about all of the links, fonts, color swatches, and inks used in a document, as well as basic file creation details. That information is displayed in the Metadata pane of Bridge when you select an InDesign document. You can then add, edit, or import metadata information, such as information about the copyright, the author, and more. You can also search for files based on embedded metadatafor example, you could search for all InDesign files that use a specific Pantone color or font, or all of the Photoshop files authored by a certain person.
Section 10: Creating and Editing Tables
PageMaker users can create and edit tables and then import them into publications. The table features in InDesign CS2 are built into the program and are much more extensive than those in PageMaker. By using the built-in table functionality in InDesign CS2, you can create, edit, and format tables directly in your document with the following benefits: You can import formatted tables from Word and Excel. You can format text in tables by using the same typographic controls and paragraph or character styles that you would use for text outside of tables. You can change the row height and column width, apply alternating colors to rows or columns, rotate text, add header and footer rows, and merge and split cells to format a table. You can add graphics to tables, embed a table inside another table, apply alternating colors to rows and columns, and more. You can make tables automatically flow across page and column breaks as your layout changes. In InDesign CS2, every table exists within a text frame. A table consists of rows and columns of cells. A cell is like a text frame in which you can add text, anchored graphics, or other tables. To edit and format tables, use the commands in the Table menu or choose Window > Type & Tables > Table to display the Table palette. Table controls are also available in the Control palette when you select any part of a table. Tables flow with surrounding text just like anchored objects. For example, a table moves through threaded frames when the text above it changes in point size, or when you add or delete text. Importing Word and Excel tables When you use the Place command (File menu) to import a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet or a Word document that includes tables, you have the option to import a formatted table, an unformatted table, or tabbed text. If you dont like the results of importing a formatted table, you can re-import it and select the Unformatted Tabbed Text option. You can then clean up the text and convert it to a table. You can also copy and paste data from an Excel spreadsheet or a Word table into an InDesign CS2 document. When you paste tables from another application, the information appears as tabbed text. You can then convert the tabbed text to a table.
When you import an Excel table, InDesign CS2 provides several options for controlling how the table is imported.
With InDesign, you can create and format linked tables with running headers and/or footers.
Formatting tables You can use any of the text formatting palettes to format text within a tablejust as you would format text outside a table. For example, you can use the Control palette to manually format text and to apply paragraph styles and character styles. In addition, you can format the table itself by using the Table Options dialog box (Table > Table Options > Table Setup) and the Cell Options dialog box (Table > Cell Options > Text). You can use these dialog boxes to change the number of rows and columns, to change the appearance of the table border and fill, to determine the spacing above and below the table, to edit header and footer rows, and to add other table formatting. Before you can format a table, you must select the Type tool and then select a cell, row, or column, or an entire table.
The various panes of the Table Options dialog box (Table > Table Options) let you control the appearance of a table.
The various panes of the Cell Options dialog box (Table > Cell Options) let you control the placement of text within a table cell.
The Row Strokes, Column Strokes, and Fills panes of the Table Options dialog box include controls that let you alternate strokes and fills to enhance readability or improve the appearance of a table. Adding alternating strokes and fills to table rows does not affect the appearance of the tables header and footer rows. However, adding alternating strokes and fills to columns does affect header and footer rows. You can also use alternating stroke and fill settings to create nonalternating patterns, such as applying a fill to every cell. To create such an effect, specify 0 for Next in the second pattern. Alternating stroke and fill settings override cell stroke formatting, unless you select the Preserve Local Formatting option in the Table Setup panel of the Table Options dialog box. The Table palette, the Control palette, and the context menu also include controls for modifying tables. Table-related commands are displayed in the context menu when you select one or more table cells. Placing graphics in tables You can use the Place command (File menu) to add a graphic to a table cell, or you can copy and paste a graphic into a cell. If you add a graphic that is larger than the cell, the cell height expands to accommodate the graphic, but the width of the cell does not changethe graphic may extend beyond the right side of the cell. If the row in which you place the graphic is set to a fixed height, a graphic that is taller than the row height causes the cell to be overset similar to the way a text frame is overset if its not big enough to display all of its text.
You create, edit, and preview an index by using the Index palette. The palette includes two modes: Reference and Topic. In Reference mode, the preview area displays index entries for the current document or book. In Topic mode, the preview area displays topics only, not page numbers or cross-references. You can create or import a list of topics to use as a starting point when creating index entries. Later, when you add entries to the index, you can select topics from the topic list (instead of typing them each time) to ensure that information is consistently indexed throughout your document or book. Creating a topic list before you add index entries is optional. Each time you create an index entry, its topic is automatically added to the topic list for future use. You create and edit a topic list by using the Index palette in Topic mode. Topic mode displays topics only. To preview index entries with their associated page numbers and cross-references, use Reference mode. This mode is helpful for getting an idea of what the final index will look like. Topics in the topic list appear in the Index Entry dialog box as well. To create an index entry, simply select a topic and then associate it with a page or cross-reference. Unused topics (those without pages or cross-references) are excluded when you generate an index.
Section 12: Printing and Exporting to Adobe PDF
InDesign CS2 offers several features for producing high-quality printed publications. Some of the printing features in InDesign CS2 are new to PageMaker users, such as the ability to preview color separations on-screen. In this section, youll learn about several printing features in InDesign CS2, and youll also learn about exporting InDesign CS2 documents as PDF documents. Preflighting documents In PageMaker, the Save For Service Provider plug-in lets you perform a quality checkon a publication before printing it or handing it off to a service provider. In InDesign CS2, you use the Preflight command (File menu), which warns you of problems that may prevent a document or book from printing as desired. The Preflight command flags issues such as missing graphic files or fonts and provides helpful information about a document or book, such as the inks it uses, the first page on which a font appears, and print settings.
The Preflight dialog box (File > Preflight) lets you check a document for problems that may prevent a document from printing as desired.
Other printing-related features In addition to the Separations Preview palette, InDesign offers several display options that let you see on-screen how a document will look in its final printed or PDF form. The Flattener Preview palette (Window > Output Preview > Flattener) helps prevent mistakes, reduce costs, and ensure the highest quality printed results by identifying the objects on a spread to which transparency effects are applied or that interact with transparent objects. The Ink Manager provides nonbinding control over inks at output time. Changes you make using the Ink Manager affect only the output, not how the colors are defined in the document. Ink Manager options are especially useful for prepress service providers. For example, if a process job includes a spot color, you can open the document and change the spot color to equivalent CMYK process colors. If a document contains two similar spot colors when only one is required, you can create an alias that links one spot color to another. To display the Ink Manager dialog box, click Ink Manager in the Output panel of the Print dialog box. The Overprint Preview command (View menu) displays an on-screen ink preview that approximates how gradients, transparency, and overprinting will appear in color-separated output. For more detailed information about the powerful printing features in InDesign CS2, refer to the online Help system. Printing documents Similar to the Print Document dialog box in PageMaker, the InDesign CS2 Print dialog box (File > Print) groups printing options into several sections. To print a book or selected documents in a book, open the Print dialog box from the book palette.
The Print dialog box (File > Print) includes eight panes with controls for specifying print options.
Printing printer spreads with InBooklet SE In PageMaker, the Build Booklet plug-in lets you create publications in which pages are arranged for printing multipage spreads. In InDesign CS2, the InBooklet SE command (File menu) lets you create printer spreads for professional printing. The term printer spread refers to two or more pages that fall next to each other on a sheet of paper. For example, if youre working on a 20-page booklet, the pages appear in sequential order in the layout window in InDesign CS2. However, in a printer spread, page 4 is positioned next to page 17 so that when the two pages are folded and collated, the pages end up in the appropriate order. The process of creating printer spreads from layout spreads is called imposition. InBooklet provides five types of imposition: 2-up Saddle Stitch, 2-up Perfect Bound, 2-up Consecutive, 3-up Consecutive, and 4-up Consecutive.
