First set Left Indent to where you'd like the text to start from and then set First Line Indent minus that amount.

Don't take me wrong anithing I will write here. One thing is extra work and one thing is usless (not usable) work. 1) The 300 ppi output for a raster image is not due people want to save pixels, it is for an intrinsec limitation on a print workflow. Yea in a high quality print you can use a 400ppi image... But 700ppi? No, not really. People do not realize ...

The way you'll make sure overprinting is applied is simply by adding your background color to the color recipe of your gray illustration. Background CMYK + Gray CMYK = Fake Overprint of the gray. If the gray is a rich gray, you don't need to literally add the ink; as long the gray contains the same value or more of yellow/cyan/magenta than your ...

"You can't export PDF with animated GIF. And you can't export PDF with a video where the controllers are hidden and the video loops itself automatically." Unfortunately I haven't test the Indesign interactive PDF but you could have a look at exporting in ePub. Another option is to create your PDF as you normally do and add your videos directly in ...

Yes. Select the first text box, click the square just above the lower right corner, and then click on the second text box.

Im hestiant about showing you how to do this because you still haven't show any effort but Im having a great day so Im going to pass along the love. This is how I would do it: Create the shape in Illustrator and round the corner (reference: How do I modify custom radius for each corner of a rectangle in Illustrator?): Export shape as an EPS file and ...

You're right, you need to align your artwork in the live work area (yellow) for best results, NOT the page. You can look at most hardcover or paperback books, you will notice they are easier to read if there's more room in the middle. And because of the binding, when you open a book the central part where the binding is will curve your sheets and give ...

Grouping both objects into the same button (even if the grouped version is only visible during the Rollover State) turns the total area of both objects and the space between them into the Rollover Area. To avoid this, create two separate buttons, and have one button "control" the other: Turn the rectangle pop-up into its own button called Rectangle, and ...

What you could do is make a new indesign document with the page size set to the height and width of the panels and make 8 pages so you can drag and drop each panel onto the appropriate page and export it as a pdf. Then you'll be able to flip through each page one by one. That's about the best you can do in terms of seeing each panel by itself. There's ...

Set text and then choose Object > Envelope Distort > Make with Mesh configure the mesh so you have 1 row and 2 columns. This provides a mesh line in the middle of the text. More columns will provide addition mesh lines for more alterations. Then it's a matter of selecting mesh points and double-clicking the Scale Tool to adjust how the mesh alters ...

Once two unconnected pages are in the same file, you can connect them the same way you have with the pages that were already there. Click the text thread square in the bottom-right of the page (just above the bottom-right corner) and then click on the frame you'd like to connect. Even if there's content in the imported frame, the two threads will connect. ...

I'm not sure why your InDesign doesn't interpret well that transparency. Maybe you need to use PDFx or check your export settings. Personally I don't use much drop shadows and transparency in these software because of that kind of surprise or the white rectangles it often creates on the PDF. It's alright for printing but if you need that file for web too, ...

1. Color Swatches If it was my project, I would update my color swatches to grayscale and the style will be updated as well. Or vice versa. Of course, it's something easier to do if you plan from the start that you'll use 2 versions; this way you add color swatches for your grayscale 60% and name them this way, and then replace that recipe with the color ...

Several causes spring to mind. You could have some object in Illustrator hidden. It's still part of a Group or Symbol so it comes along, but since its turned off, the location is making the dimensions larger. Alternatively, it could be a Guide placed in Illustrator. Same deal as any layer — they could be grouped incorrectly and thus come along for the ride. ...

You can avoid this problem by using Advanced Crop Marks script. It is free InDesign script that makes creating crop and registration marks very comfortable and intuitive, based on chosen parameters, see the following picture. It can be downloaded for example at the following link: http://www.scriptopedia.org/en/js-indesign/122-advancedcropmarks-en.html. ...

Firstly your need to add some navigation in so that you can move between the pages. Switch to the Interactive for PDF workspace. follow these instructions- https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/interactivity-5.html (choosing the forward and back buttons from the sample menu should automatically add the effects to the buttons. Select the pages- in the page ...

First if you want to do logos, you should consider Adobe Illustrator first. Maybe have a look at the Adobe's website and learn about their different software before throwing yourself into focusing on learning one only. They work all together, so eventually you'll need to learn a few! But if you need to learn InDesign from scratch... I'm not really sure ...

You can do this in Acrobat Pro. You can do this manually trough the GUI but it might get involved so you can just type this in the JavaScript console Open the document you want to manipulate. Open the JavaScript console, you can find it in the debugger. In console type: this.insertPages({ nPage: 4 ,cPath:"x:\\path\\color.pdf", nStart: 0}); ...

That would be interesting to see one of your design example and one of your co-worker design to see what you mean. RGB, CMYK There's no issue in working in RGB and then converting to CMYK if you know what you're doing. Anyway some filters are not even available in CMYK mode. What counts is the final result; 1) does it look awesome and 2) Is it well ...

I don't think there is a way for InDesign to manage this task unless you break each section into its own file and assemble it as an InDesign book (maybe?). That's probably more of a hassle than you want to deal with. However, PDFTK (PDF Toolkit) is a free tool that has (among other things) a combine function that will allow you to accomplish this via ...

The other answers have covered quite a bit. However, if you do end up needing a cover letter, I would suggest that you go for something that matches your resume design. In a way, you are creating your personal branding. You want potential employers to remember you and often continuity of design can be beneficial. With that being said, you do want to keep the ...

Thanks all, because each face/ball was a separate AI file it was a bit of a mission to recreate it. I ended up exporting a nice high res file and just doing a trace on it - looks like it has solved the issue - next one I will do all in AI i think! I was just because we had a colour version for one side and the Sandblast Vinyl the other side - it was easier ...

InDesign would be your greatest solution. It is a program focused on typography and meant to make ready-for-print output. In InDesign, you will create "rules" when you begin laying out your document which will define a structure upon which you can build. InDesign will allow you to easily create rectangles, squares, etc. much like you can do in Photoshop. ...

I think depends on 2 main things. Design The trim area does not necessary means that you do not touch or put something in this area (like with a photograph). A side note: Thoose margins are (in my opinion) too small to have text, so that is not a "safe area". In my opinion a safe margin is arround half inch or 12 mm on the outer borders. If you are ...

In general, I've found that opening the exported InDesign PDF with Acrobat and then resaving using Reduce File size . . . in Acrobat results in smaller files without any significant loss of quality (for proofing). I use a custom Job Option when exporting from InDesign for proofs. The custom Job Option is slightly better than the "Smallest file" option -- ...

I do not think that is possible and if it is, most non tech oriented people will have difficulties updating it, even if it is via PDF. I have never seen such feature in a PDF. However there are online platforms such as https://readymag.com that will allow you to create a template, where people will be able to swap out the images and export it as PDF. If that ...

Here is how I solved it. First I moved back to my Google spreadsheet using Regex. I did the thing in 2 steps which could probably be joined together. I want to use the =REGEXREPLACE function that recognizes a certain string pattern. But as this function only accepts strings and not dates or numbers I add a character "A" to the dates in a new column (C) ...

With vinyl, you need to make sure you don't have overlapping paths. That's probably what you printer is referring to. Maybe the issue the printer has is because you didn't clean up your graphic by using the "pathfinder" tool and having transparent filling and/or white instead of transparent. Your strokes should also be "expanded." Mini guide here. 1. ...

Object > Text Frame Options . . The Inset Spacing options controls how close text is allowed to get to the edges of the text frame. This is what is indicated by the inner frame.

Without inspecting your artwork file or talking with your printer, it's a bit of a shot in the dark for us to determine what pre-press setup you'll need for this to work. Is there any way I can remove the non-visible lines and objects "Non-visible lines and objects" could be a few different things. If they are closed paths with no Fill or Stroke ...
