Pantone to Pantone gradients are really never smooth on screen. The translation to RGB for display doesn't tend to allow for smooth transitions between spot colors. L*A*B is smooth because it's spectrum is not as rigid as spot colors. Create two separate gradients, one which goes from Pantone A 100%-0% and the other which is Pantone B from 0%-100%. Stack ...

As far as I can tell, the only place you can override the document's baseline grid and set a different baseline grid is at the text frame level. There are a few ways to do this: As a one-off: select a text frame, then Text Frame Options > Baseline options For a class of text frames: in the Object Styles window, create an Object Style, then set the new ...

The files in your InDesign document are previews of the images you placed. You can't retrieve the originals from within your InDesign document if you deleted the original files. To prevent losing or accidental removing images, its best to work with versions and to package each version.

If you choose No Style for the Based On field all references to other styles get removed. However all formatting will be retained. Based upon your question, I believe you can set the Based On to No Style and be set. This way all the original "Word (Entry)" style formatting will still be applied to "Main". However, if you change the "Word (Entry)" style, ...

Essentially yes. InDesign, when exporting to a press-ready format, will convert RGB images to CMYK based on your assigned color profile settings. So theoretically you could use RGB images in everything and allow Adobe and your color setting to handle all conversions. This will work. However, in many cases you may want to verify color in an image when ...

No. The only thing InDesign supports, and exports to PDF, for hyperlinks is the literal URL. You cannot include another 'target' (see https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1508480), or in fact anything else than the bare URL.

Where does your items name "linkslist" come from? By setting a name for the textFrame? The "name" property of a textframe seems to be persistent for the document. Also if you copy paste the textframe to another doc it still is there. But if you have a page with 2 textframes and you run: $.writeln(app.activeDocument.pages[0].textFrames.length); it ...

In situations like these, the quickest way is usually to use a script. (At least if your 800 pages are already created without utilizing master pages. If you're just setting up your document, you should really make use of master pages in your workflow, as Marc Edwards pointed out.) Here is a little snippet that could be used as a script in your specific ...

it should be like this: app.activeDocument.stories[7].paragraphs[0].contents = "blah blah blah\r"; See http://yearbookmachine.github.io/esdocs/#/InDesign/Paragraph/contents. The \r creates a had linebreak. For a soft linebreak use \n

I assume all the pages have a similar layout? If so, I’d use a master page to ensure the layout is identical, and as you’d like. It’s been a while since I’ve used InDesign, but these points from a Lynda article seem relevant: Create a master from an existing page Have a document page you want to use as a master? No problem! Just drag a document spread ...

Here is a Javascript that creates named destinations from a set of paragraph style names. This script uses the paragraph styles and levels defined in a Table of Contents Style. That way, you can easily review and modify what styles it should use. It also needs the TOC level number; this is used to create a unique name for each destination. After the 'level' ...

I am not familiar with inDesign too much, but you could try the following in case you initially found the picture on the Internet... Take a screenshot of the pictures in your document and use Google Reverse Image Search to find similar or the exact same picture. In case you got it from the Internet, you are most likely to find it doing so. Here is an ...

Are all of you text boxes aligned to baseline grid? Maybe some are and some aren't? Make sure you have the same master pages for both sides of the booklet or at least to align it appropriately. Regarding the indesign document and the need to add pages - I'm not so sure you need all that. Think about how you are going to bind the book. If you are going to use ...

You could also define an object style and apply it to your frames. This would make it easier to change the corners later on. If you have multiple pages you can't select all frames at once.

You set up your document exactly to the trim size (the size requested). When printing/exporting the document, you check "crop marks" in the "marks and bleed" section of the print/export dialog. ( reference: Adobe Help Docs ) As a general rule, you should always set your document to the final desired "trim size" and then worry about what size paper you will ...

Create and apply appropriate styles and you can generate any TOC you like. For example, create paragraph styles Newsitem and Cultureitem to apply to the appropriate kind of heading or first paragraph for each item.

Command(CTRL)+SHIFT and grab a corner handle to resize both the image and the container at the same time.
