Yes you can actually. See Adobe's instructions: https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/formatting-paragraphs.html Use Keep Options in the Paragraph panel menu (if you have text selected, then click on the paragraph panel expanded options for this menu to be accessible). You can also do this within the paragraph styles. Check "Keep Lines Together" and then ...

No, multiple masters cannot be applied to a single page. Conceptually, master pages are alternate templates — an actual page in your document can only use 1 template at a time. Now, you can do multiple master pages where subsequent master pages add to earlier master pages. So, let's say you start with A-master. You can setup your basic page grid, etc. ...

As per the Adobe InDesign website: InDesign is a page layout tool. The program allows you to collect graphical (raster and vector) and textual content into a layout, enabling easy multi-page processing and powerful exporting options for both print and digital purposes. And I feel like an Adobe salesman now. InDesign has powerful tools for easy workflows ...

You have extra numbers because you have extra returns. Your style gives each paragraph a number, and InDesign doesn't care if your paragraph has content or not. You have to search/replace two returns to one return, and then if you want physical space between paragraphs, edit your style to contain Space Before.

Put simply: Illustrator is for creating vector graphics, logos and single page layouts. InDesign is for creating single and multi-page layouts using elements created in illustrator/photoshop/corel etc Yes you are correct that CorelDraw is basically very similar to Illustrator.

PDF/X-1a is the most common format designed for print production. It is specifically designed to create a universal format that contains all the necessary information for printing. Be certain to include trim marks and bleeds. PNG is never acceptable. JPG can be at times, but it's not that common and there are some important considerations to be aware of - ...

Paste it as an inline graphic. Wisdom is in the eye of the beholder and/or client. Only you can figure out if the annoyance of working with an itty-bitty wandering graphic is worth whatever benefit it provides.

.25" on all sides -- left .25" + right .25" = .5" What you are seeing is standard.

Ask your printing guys. There are firms that only accept EPS, even in this day and age, because they use an outdated (and cheap!) workflow, where often somewhere along the lines "CorelDRAW" gets mentioned. There are even 'print-only' firms that only accept JPEGs. If your guys are like these, run! and find some other printing guys. You should be counting ...

Not sure how well it works with data compression, but you may want to give git annex a try: http://git-annex.branchable.com If your files aren't so big, plain git or mercurial may be the best fit. Just avoid SVN at all costs

The best option is probably to make your icon a font. This can be done using a script by @jongware. He can do a better job of explaining it than I can. It's something that I have on my radar for the next time I need to create glyphs, so I haven't used it yet. There's a free trial or basic version. The script and more details can be found on indiscripts.com: ...

Autosize bases the new size on the text in the frame. But the placeholder character for a page number doesn't have a definitive size - it can be smaller or (much) wider on every single page. It's either intentionally made so (for reasons of software design), or a straight out bug (and I suspect the latter, because text variables suffer from similar ...

Set up 4 Master Pages. Then on each master page use File > Place and place the template file. Apply the masters where needed. You won't be able to edit the templates. However, if you go back and change the original template file, the placed versions on the master pages can be updated, keeping them consistent with original template file changes. If ...

The basic idea Corel Draw and Ilustrator are mainly for vector based ilustrations. This is very broad, it can be a logo, and icon or inclusive almost photorealistic vector based images. It can also be used for layout. This is for printed materials, flyers, posters, etc. This can combine photographs, vector based images and text. On the other hand, the ...

In terms of evenly spacing elements in drawing software, I'd use the alignment tools and/or blend tool. Illustrator has both. My typical process is: draw single object clone/duplicate as many as I need position one at the beginning and one at the end select all then use the align tool

I don't have the reputation required to post a comment, but I'm wondering if you're using master pages for these layouts and if your content is tagged with the needed paragraph styles. If so, then you as long as all the content is in the primary text frame, it should convert nicely when you apply a different master to the page. I believe more detail on your ...

What order should pages be? (sequential or otherwise) Generally, for the designer, reader spreads (sequential). It is most often in the hands of the print provider to impose a reader spread PDF or document into printer spreads for production. There are some cases (generally for smaller print shops) where you may be asked to create printer spreads. But ...

No, you’re supposed to use two separate styles. Why are you trying to confuse how things are formatted by having two separate visual appearances be applied by a single style?

I made something similar recently in Illustrator. To start out, I created a diagonal line, then copied and pasted it multiple times on my artboard. After I added the desired number of diagonal lines, I used the horizontal and vertical distribution and alignment buttons to evenly distribute and align the lines. For me they are visible by default in the top ...

Your PDF needs to be linked - you cannot copy and paste it into your ID document. Go to the "links" panel and make sure that the PDF resides on your computer/network, and you are linked to it. PDFs that are "unlinked" will be blurry.

Different styles are for different styles You don't want one style to produce two different visual results. That would be a very strange feature. What you're after is automation of applying the styles. That makes sense. I assume you have your whole book chained in one text flow. And the styles surrounding your chapter text are already in place from the ...

It is NOT a Mac OSX vs Windows... It is a color calibrated workflow issue. The options are. A. 1) Send a color chart to the client. (see this post How to get close to PMS 662 or PMS 296 in CMYK?) Already embedded in a Word file. 2) Let him print this color chart on the specific printer they will be using. 3) Pick up that sample. 4) Adjust the colors ...

Maybe your Photoshop is not set to Fogra or has a different setup in your "Edit/Color Settings". There are many options that can throw it off if your InDesign doesn't match. Otherwise, if you study color management, you'll discover that conversion is tricky. It doesn't just go from RGB to CMYK. First you have to convert CMYK to LAB using the profile and ...

Well it's been a while since I posted this question but I figured I would let everyone know what my solution was. The truth is, there is no way for InDesign CS6 to reset the proportions of stretched images. The only method is to directly select the graphic, then scale up or down with the proportions locked, then they will match. BUT I learned a thing or ...

I came across this https://everythingfonts.com/accenter while searching for a solution to a similar problem. Seems to do a good job in automatically building the accented glyphs from the base font. The transformed font seems to include most of the accent characters needed for most European languages, don't know whether it includes the polish glyph that you ...

There is a setting during export: Visible Guides And Grids Exports margin guides, ruler guides, column guides, and baseline grids currently visible in the document. Grids and guides export in the same color used in the document. https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/pdf-options.html Examine that setting.

Observing that the EPS file uses PDF-style syntax, I noted that the text scaling is done with Tf: 8 0 0 8 5.327283 18.119995 Tm The 6 numbers are a transformation matrix, where the first number (8) is the x scale and the fourth number (also, as it happens, 8) is the y scale of the text. You have to pick one (well, usually) – I picked the first number. ...

I'm not certain I understand. I assume you are wanting the logo to be 100% opacity while the photo behind it is 60% opacity. In order to do that you need the logo image placed as a separate object. InDesign does not allow you to pick and choose object layers for its effects. The InDesign effects apply to the entire object. They essentially alter the frame, ...

There are a few ways to do it: Redokun https://redokun.com (disclaimer: I’m a co-founder) Export all the sentences in an Excel file, translate them and then reimport the sentences into the InDesign files. Otherwise, there are a few (paid) tools (InPagina come to mind, but there are a few of them). There are also some solutions that save your document ...

The question got me curious so off on a google hunt I went... Found this thread archived from Typophile: http://web.archive.org/web/20141114141104/http://typophile.com/node/37437 The last comment states: The font was created by a guy named Josh Korda and was based on my own handwriting. We created it as designers for Scholastic Publishing in the early ...
