i think it is not possible with pre-installed software on both OS: Mac OS X and MS Windows, but with a third party application like: Suitcase (Win) / Suitcase Fusion (Mac) Font Explorer X there are more Applications, auto on/off fonts is possible with, can be found on the web …

Books for electronic devices are typically sold with reflowable text. I suggest you look into how to build an ePub. I suggest this because your are not allowed to sell or offer PDF format on iBooks Since you have mentioned possible building for android I would advise reflowable and not fixed. Fixed layout ebooks are developed based on the devices ...

um... I would HOPE the developer is using it as a reference point and plans to code what you have designed. I would request clarification on this and you could provide a .pdf file of the website as a reference. If they are trying to slice the file for a website that is a bad idea.. You could always extract the site in an .xml file from InDesign or even ...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but pretty sure this isn't possible in PS. If you're working with that much type that you need to use many text boxes, ideally it should be done in InDesign or Illustrator.

When generating a PDF for print production you should first use the PDF/X-1a setting. "High Quality Print" is okay, but PDF/X-1a is much better. It ensures the PDF will meet standard requirements for press in terms of color, flattening, etc. It is also important to always select the Crop Marks option unless you're asked not to specifically. Crop marks tell ...

It's certainly possible, and I'm not able to find a problem with it in any of the current versions (CS6, CC, CC 2014) of InDesign. There were some issues with cross-references that spanned documents using the Book feature, but I believe they were fixed somewhere between CS4 and CS5. Do make sure that your text anchors don't overlap (each should be a ...

[How] can I be sure that this PDF generated from InDesign will print to paper as it is shown on screen in PDF ? You can't. There at least a dozen variables in the path from screen to press. You can not control all of them and it's entirely possible ones you can control are incorrect. You have to calibrate everything - monitors, scanners - use proper ...

Its not a good idea to parse HTML with regular expressions (GREP). ;( Why are you esscaping the < and > chars? they should have no specific meaning in regular expressions. Try <(.*?)> or even better <([^<>]*)>. But that matches the entire thing tough it has a matching group, you can use it to replace, but it does not alter the ...

Marc Autret's IndexMatic is still the king of the hill for InDesign indexing: To index singular and plural forms—or other variants—under the same heading, the best way is to extend the original words to regular expressions. Here is the most common example, including the letter 's' at the end of the word: /cats?/ => cat which can be also ...

I'm not aware of a function specifically for that, but if you right click the text layer and convert the paragraph text to point text then back again it will get the job done.

As I know there is no software that natively supports hexa-color space (e.g. CMYKOG by Pantone or one you mentioned). You can take this advantage manually via multichannel mode in Photoshop. But it is really tricky and requires constant color separation and tests. As for desktop printers which use 6 colors. This printers have own color separation and RIP ...

Font managers like the two Chris mentions are really the key to this problem. They come with their own quirks and problems, but they do help. TypeDNA is an inexpensive tool ($50 for a license for two machines). It allows you to deactivate any fonts that aren't required by the system, browse your library, make groups of fonts and activate fonts permanently ...

I would strongly recommend changing the .docx file to .zip, opening that up and copying everything from the images folder into a separate images folder with your .indd document. That will a) let you access the not-messed-with-by-Word originals, and b) let you use Bridge or your OS navigator to select and place them. This just makes things a lot cleaner. ...

You need to: start w/ a .pdf which has the characters encoded using Unicode (check document properties) have the font in InDesign set to one which has those characters at the same Unicode slots Then it'll ``just work''.

You should be able to use the "starting number" option on each bullet if you don't want them in numerical order. Make sure only the line you want to change is selected. If you have all the lines selected, they will all display your "starting number"

The most direct way to handle this is to Find/Replace any instance of the Bold+Italic Character Style in the List of Figures Paragraph Style with your Italic-only Character Style. In generating any TOC, InDesign passes through unchanged anything that is not exactly as defined in the target Paragraph Style. Thus if you have a 24 pt chapter title that ...

Click, hold, and drag the ruler origin (top left corner where they meet) to move the 0s. You can place the ruler at the center of the spread and measure from there.

InDesign's Paragraph Styles are a text attribute, not a frame attribute, so the applied Paragraph Style dominates. Even if you specify different Object Styles for different frames, and set different Paragraph Styles for each, it's the last Paragraph Style of the first threaded frame that takes precedence. Think this through, and you'll see the logic. You ...

If you are wanting to do this automatically and have InDesign CS6+ the only alternative is to create a script to achieve what you want. If you're on a Mac you could always use AppleScript to record what you're doing and modify it accordingly to apply to every object in your project. So this would extend further on Marcoslhc's answer. If you're not on ...

Here's a rule you should never break: Professional print projects should not be viewed in, or printed to, non-Adobe PDF engines. The problem you're running into is a common one, caused by the fact that your PDF "printer" engine (FoxIt, in this case) doesn't implement the full PDF specification. Instead, it contains a subset that covers the most common ...

These screenshots are from InDesign CC, but should be similar to your version of InDesign. Please start with the pages flowing the default way InDesign sets them (first page is page number 1). The triangle above the first page indicates that a section starts there. Next, select pages 2-3 by shift-clicking them individually. Then, right-click that spread, ...

You can't really get there in one step. Although InDesign could strip out the unwanted line breaks using a grep find/replace in some cases, that won't work at all for Ps or Ai. The smoothest way to accomplish this is to export the PDF from Acrobat to Word, plain text or even Rich Text, or to use a converter like TextSoap (as Lauren recommends) or PDF2ID, ...

Word documents are good for printing hard-copies from your desk. But if you're looking to get any of your marketing collateral or a serious piece of work published, then you'd need a software like Indesign. There are several advantages to typesetting your professional brochures, whitepapers, leaflets and ebooks on Indesign. Even while looking similar, ...

I'm fairly certain it's not a feature in Indesign. Not sure if you were after something exactly like this, but I coded it anyways: Just save it in the indesign script folder as "Master Page Numbers.jsx" and run it with a document open. When you press check, it'll give you a list of page numbers where the selected master is applied. // ...
