Overview

Adobe InDesign has rapidly established itself as the driving force in the page layout and design markets. InDesign CS2 in easy steps shows you how to harness the creative potential and power in both the existing features and the exciting new features such as Object Styles, Snippets and image controls as well as the extensive file management capabilities of the Adobe Bridge.

The early chapters concentrate on the fundamentals of page layout, creating a platform on which to build new skills. Further chapters deal with InDesign's comprehensive typesetting capabilities. There are chapters on color; text editing; paragraph, character and objects styles; master pages and document construction and layers — all of which progressively expand the user's skillset.

In the second part of the book there are chapters dealing with tables of contents and indexes, the book palette, InDesign's industrial strength print, pdf export and XML capabilities, together with chapters covering InDesign's powerful table functionality, and its sophisticated Bezier curve functionality.

InDesign CS2 in easy steps brings a clear, logical and informative learning sequence to the software, using, step by step instructions and an abundance of screenshots that clarify and explain features with the minimum of fuss and the maximum impact.
