Overview

If you work in page-layout programs — whether you're transitioning fromQuark or PageMaker, or just getting started using InDesign, you'll want tohave a copy of "InDesign 2 for Windows and Macintosh: Visual QuickStartGuide" as your resource of choice.

Adobe InDesign 2.0 is coming of age — it offers new features such as truetransparency, table creation, long document support, indexing, a superior printing interface,and native Mac OS X support. The program's tighter integration with other Adobe products enables graphic designers, production artists, and prepress professionals to exercise design innovation and improve productivity. This cross-platform, visual guide introduces you to the InDesign interface, including the tools and palettes, how to create and navigate a document, import and style text and objects, automate your work, manage longdocuments, use the Bezier pen tools, and work with color. More advancedtopics, such as advanced text control and preflighting are also covered.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Adobe InDesign, QuarkXPress's page layout competitor, can integrate with other Adobe applications such as Photoshop, Acrobat, and Illustrator. With new features like the ability to import directly transparent image files from other Adobe applications and XML support, version 2.0 has spawned several guides to its use; public libraries with older books should be sure to upgrade. Visual QuickStart's extensive screenshots, clear instructions, and valuable tips make it a winner. An appendix lists keyboard shortcuts for both Windows and Mac users, and step-by-step explanations help InDesign novices quickly accomplish common tasks. Classroom includes self-paced tutorials that lead beginning users through common projects. Along with the CD's lesson files, review questions and answers in each chapter make this a useful self-study resource.
