First, Place your image and make sure it actually is grayscale. You can do that by looking at the link info in the Links panel. Setting the fill color on the frame will change the fill of the whole frame and any white parts of your grayscale image. Selecting the image within the frame and setting the fill color will change the color of the black parts ...

Yes, sort of. You can place a textbox inside the table and round that. The technique is a bit tedious but I'm sure somebody has written a script to manage this, if not one could be made. Image 1: Table with textboxes that have rounded corners

The optimum way to do what you're seeking is to create the book in InDesign, as you mentioned, but... 1) The text should all be done in InDesign, not Illustrator or Photoshop. Your file size will be much smaller, you'll have a much easier time editing the text, and your printed product will be better. Illustrator and PS are hugely powerful, but page layout ...

No, pages cannot have different bleed margins compared to other pages in the same document. Bleed is a property of the document preferences, hence it can only be set for the document globally. Apart from that, I also wonder why one would need to set different bleed margins on different pages?

Stacked fractions aren't supported by InDesign's fraction making features. To get stacked (or nut) fractions you need a font that has the stacked fractions. A list of some Google Fonts (all free) that you can use (thanks to @RadLexus): Coda – by Vernon Adams Telex – by Huerta Tipografica Arbutus Slab – by Karolina Lach Unica One – by Eduardo ...

There are 2 methods I have found, 1 of which is a workaround and not a solution. 1) Change the character style for the text you do not want to be hyperlinked. When you first create a hyperlink, InDesign will create a new hyperlink character style called "Hyperlink". Select the text you do not want to be hyperlinked and change the character style. 2) This ...

I would extend the work area to the size of the paper (including the "fold"). Just be careful with the corners of end document as folding can alter your design. It ends up as being the same than creating another document for the jacket and dynamically import tue cover design on - that can be safer. Also, try to figure out the thickness of the cover to ...

No you cannot. From my experience you will need to covert it to XML. If I were you I would script a solution or you can use many conversion tools online to achieve this. After converting to XML, test the XML output before importing it into InDesign.

I think Rad Lexus is correct but didn't give the full answer. Don't use ascii (Alt + numbers) to create the fractions in InDesign. Use InDesign. Good high quality fonts will have OpenType Fractions, which is different than just having a single fraction Glyph: For example with Candara: But then you'll have to find a high quality font that has a ...

I've had the same issue in documents translated into Urdu - mostly Arabic alphabet but still some English text (contacts, etc.). The solution to your question may be to change the Cursor Control setting in 'Preferences > Right to Left'. See explanation on this Arabic/Hebrew Help page under 'Right to Left writing preferences'. My personal workaround is to ...

It is in fact based on the font you're using, and how it's built, as @Alex mentioned above. Here's an example of four different fonts, same font size, exact same setting in each text box: The first font is standard Arial. The second it a fairly common sans-serif font, AG Book Pro. The third and fourth are fancier fonts I got from dafont.com. As you can ...

If you already have a table, select it and go Table > table Options > Headers and Footers and add one header and one footer. Select all of the cells in your table, and give them a central row stroke. make sure the top and bottom row strokes are ...

I have recently started using the InDesign Page Exporter Utility Script and i can confirm this does what you need. I just tried this on one of my documents and yes you have the option to export each page as a separate PDF.

I've found a possible solution: I put all the objects that should adjust their position into a blank text frame as anchored objects, and then in Anchored Object Options set their position as Custom and Relative to Spine with appropriate X and Y Offset from Page Edge. Now when the page changes left/right, the anchored objects adjust their position as ...

There are probably either alternate glyphs for the character or ligatures that include that character in the font. You can check if this is the case in InDesign by opening the Glyphs panel (Window → Type & Tables → Glyphs) and searching for any other glyphs that include that character. You can open the font in any font manager or editor and check the ...

Some things to try: Create a new document. Make sure it's not set up as Facing Pages. Try importing your text into that. If that works, it was something in your document. Copy all your text into a bare-bones editor like BBEdit or Text Wrangler, which will strip out ALL formatting and styling. Paste that into a new IND document. If that works, it was ...
