Week 11 | Thursday | INDD

In InDesign You Will:

Work with a document to understand how to navigate, place graphics, and add formatting to text, creating a finished document that can be printed or distributed as a digital document.

An Overview of InDesign


The InDesign Workspace:

Documents in InDesign are located INSIDE the black border. This is your workspace.

Document Window:

Anything INSIDE the black border will appear in your finished page. The area outside of the black border is called the “pasteboard”. You can drag and drop elements you want to use on your page there but you MUST DRAG them inside the black border to show up on your finished file. This is a great way to “temporarily” hold items until you use them.


Using Guides
Just like Photoshop and Illustrator, guides in Indesign will help you align content on your page and create and organized layout.
  • Margin Guides
  • Ruler Guides
Margin guides define the space around the edge of your document. This is important so that you don’t cut off any content on your page. Margin guides are displayed in magenta. By default, they display 1/2″ within the page edge.
Ruler guides are guides you add to your document layout to align content on your page. You can hide the guides anytime you want.
  • To hide guides:  Choose View > Grids & Guides > Hide Guides or Command+; on the Mac.
  • To view guides: Choose View > Grids & Guides > Show Guides or Command+; on the Mac.

Viewing Modes
The viewing modes option lets you choose whether all content and guides display on your monitor, or whether InDesign displays only content that is positioned on the page and will print.
 Preview Mode
At the bottom of the Tools panel, click and hold the Mode button, and choose Preview from the available modes. The pasteboard will appear gray and all elements located on the pasteboard are hidden. The boarders do not display around any items on the page if they are not selected.
Bleed Mode
Click and hold the Mode button again and choose Bleed from the menu. This shows the bleed area that was specified when the document was created. “Bleed” is the outside of the page that is intentionally used by designers so that any inaccuracies in the cutting, trimming, and binding process do not create a visible white space along the edge of an object that is intended to print all the way to the edge of a document.
Presentation Mode
Click and hold the Mode button again and choose Presentation from the menu. This mode present your document on a black background. It’s a good way for viewing your document. In this mode  you can navigate through the pages of your document by using the up and down or left and right arrow keys. To exit Presentation mode click escape.
Click and hold the Mode button again and choose Normal.

Working with Panels
The Tools Panel
  • Click on the double-arrow icon at the top of the tools panel. This changes it from a single to a double column.
  • Click the gray bar at the top of the Tools panel, hold down the mouse button and you can drag the panel around.

Navigation

SHORT CUTS FOR GETTING AROUND YOUR DOCUMENT

  • Click on PAGES menu – double click on the page you want to go to.
  • To select the HAND TOOL – Hold down the OPTION + SPACE BAR. Use the hand tool to move around a page.
  • To fit the page in the window and center it – press COMMAND + 0 – To center a spread in the window – use COMMAND + OPTION +0

Changing the Magnification of your Document

RESOURCES AND SHORTCUTS

  1. In the Pages panel, double-click on the page 1 icon to display the first page of the document.
  2. Select > Zoom tool and click and hold in the upper-left corner of the Spinnews logo at the top of the page and then drag down to the lower-right corner of the logo. Release the mouse. The area  you’ve selected with the Zoom tool is magnified. If you’ve zoomed too much, hold the Option key while clicking with the Zoom tool.
  3. Select the Hand tool from the Tools panel. Click and hold down on the page in the document window. Magnification changes and a red frame appears,  indicating which portion of the document will be visible when you finish scrolling.
  4. Use the Hand tool to arrange the page so the logo is in the center of your document.
  5. Press and hold the page in the document window. Position the red frame so the entire border of the image is visible, then release the mouse.
  6. To view the entire document: View > Fit Page in Window or Command+0.

#1 DO NOW: Placing and Formatting Text 
Adding Type and Wrapping Text

 Download project files here:

Choose File > Open > Open Project Done
Choose Window > Workspace > Typography

Choose Window > Workspace > Reset Typography to reset the InDesign panels to their default positions for the Typography workspace.
  1. InDesign 01 Project
  2. InDesign 01 Links

 

When adding type in an InDesign layout, you always place it inside a frame. Frames are containers that hold text but they can also hold graphics or shapes.
  1. Choose File > Open File and open id01.indd.

WATCH THE VIDEO > COMPLETE THE VIDEO TUTORIAL > SAVE THE FILE AS lastname_firstname_date_type 

SAVE YOUR PROJECT AND UPLOAD TO YOUR HOMEWORK POST.
#1 PLACING TEXT

SHORT CUTS FOR ADDING PARAGRAPH STYLES

  • Window Menu > Styles > Paragraph Styles
  • See a small PLUS SIGN at the end of a column – this means there’s more text than the frame can fit. Click on SELECTION TOOL – click on PLUS SIGN – hover over text frame in second frame. Text is linked from one frame to the next.
  • Use TYPE TOOL – click on text – COMMAND A to select all text.

#2 DO NOW: Building Documents with Master Pages

  • Creating and saving custom page sizes
  • Creating page guides
  • Adding section

* If necessary, use the Pages panel to navigate to the first page.

  • Choose the TYPE TOOL and position the cursor on the left edge of the page so it is at the margin guide, approximately 1/2″ above the list of stories. Use your mouse to click and drag diagonally down and to the right to create a new text frame. Release the mouse when it is positioned just above the existing text frames that contains the list of stories. The new frame should be place above the existing frame and the left and right edges should be similarly positioned to the corresponding edges of the frame.
  • Type “Inside this issue:” into the text frame.
  • Choose File > Save As > Save it as id0301_work.indd (export as a .jpg as well)

SAVE YOUR PROJECT AND UPLOAD TO YOUR HOMEWORK POST.
#5 ADDING TYPE

TIP: Creating Multiple Frames

When drawing a text frame pressing the right arrow key one time will divide the text frame being created into two linked text frames. Pressing the arrow key a second time will create a third linked frames, which you can continue until you have the desired number of frames.

TIP: TAB CHARACTER  (tab key – symbol is a double chevron) When setting tabs inside a document, NEVER  put more than one tab in a row. Tabs are paragraph specific. One tab character per one tab stop.
