Yes, Photoshop could be used to design a magazine. But, so could MSPaint. This is absolutely a job suited for InDesign. InDesign has much better tools for typesetting. If I didn't have InDesign available to me, I'd probably even use word processing software to lay everything out instead of going with Photoshop. It's definitely not the tool for the job.
My question: Can I create a magazine exclusively using PhotoShop? YES you can, BUT this is not the industry standard and it is highly frowned upon. See last paragraph. My understanding: It should simply be a case of using CMYK and an adequately high resolution. The standard is 300dpi for print, but again, that depends on the medium, ...
Edit: Even though you seem to mention it multiple times, it just dawned on me that you were talking about character styles and not paragraph styles... :( I'm just going to leave this here anyways. You could do this with table of contents. You can make table contents by using paragraph styles as the "hook". Layout > Table of contents... Here I pretty ...
In actual production all advertising spaces have specified dimensions - full page, half page, third page, quarter page, eighth page, etc. Those dimensions are posted online or provided in a specification sheet to advertisers. Specifications would include trim size, bleed size, and any other restrictions. Advertisers provide artwork for their own ad at the ...
Right click the swatch on your swatch panel. Go to Swatch Options. Change the Color Mode to CMYK. You will get decimal points which isn't a problem really but if it annoys you just then decide to round up or round down.
Choose File > Print Booklet. If a printer preset has the settings you want, choose it in the Print Preset menu. To use the print settings (as they appear in the Print dialog box) of the current document, choose Current Document Settings from the Print Preset menu. If you don’t want the entire document to be imposed, select Range in the Setup area and ...
Here's a method that works and doesn't require anything other than basic InDesign features. It's pretty easy, but has a few steps, so, if you need to do this often, it might be worth looking into using scripts instead (see comments below) so you can do all of this with one click, not many. 1: In a copy of the file, remove all text that doesn't have this ...
I don't have InDesign to check this, but assuming it behaves the same as the tester here, I believe this should work: ^.*?(:|$) That's just matching everything from the start of a string up to either the first colon or the end of the string.
I'd cheat (but I do that a lot). Make sure every line ends in a colon, even the short titles which have no subtitles. Use your GREP to make everything up to the colon bold. Run a second S/R to find everything with "colon-hard return" and make it just "hard return" (which removes colons from any line without a subtitle).
This is the closest I've managed: \<[^:]*|[^:]*: It means: \<[^:]* - from the start of the paragraph (\<), grab things that aren't colons ([^:]), and grab any number of them (*)... (this gets lines that have no colons, and lines with colons up to the first colon) | or... [^:]*: grab any number of things that aren't colons ([^:]*) that are ...
I have a solution, please follow the steps below, it will help you: Export your PDF file from Indesign as usual. Open your PDF file if the file did not open automatically after saving it. As you are viewing your PDF file In Adobe Reader, go to Preview / Preferences / PDF. Unselect Smooth text and line art. Close the image and export it again and you good ...
