Set up your text frames with a custom baseline grid that starts offset from the top of the frame. Set the Start to a value big enough to fit your headers: Set the paragraph style for your body text to align to the baseline grid: In the paragraph style for your headers, under Keep Options, set your headers to always start on a new frame. Make sure your ...

There are several issues here. The "damage" is aparently already done. There is no real damage. EPS is an old format but widley supported. Yes, there are better options to save transparent bitmaps. For RGB files PNG and PSD. For CMYK TIF and PSD. Regarding the compression there are several ones on each format. On TIF just do not use JPG compression. ...

Edit: It's not impossible per-se. But impossible without changing some other spacing (which you probably don't want to do) (see Rad Lexus' answer) You can't. It's impossible. If all the spaces were equal you would no longer have equal line lengths (i.e. not justified). There is no way around that. The justification options in your paragraph style (Word ...

A typeface with a large x-height (the relative size of lowercase vs. uppercase letters) may have one typeface 'look' bigger than the other. Moreover, and no less common, point size is hardly a measure for actual glyph size. Verdana uppercase is larger than Garamond uppercase, for example. Some typefaces have ridiculously small letters for their point sizes. ...

What you're looking to do here is to make a table, where the rows expand, keeping your content aligned. Luckily InDesign has such a feature. Make a new text box roughly the size of you're whole Q&A area, then insert the table from: Table > Insert Table (cmnd/ctrl + alt + shift + T) The column number will be 2 (one for questions, one for answers) ...

I'm sorry to say, but it is not possible on a keyboard without a number pad. You need to use the number pad numbers, for your shortcuts, not the regular ones. You can still edit keyboard shortcuts through the Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts menu, but you can't assign Paragraph or Character Style shortcuts. I've found that using the Paragraph/Character Style ...

My personal workflow for down-and-dirty "in-house" branded "gallery wall labels" which vary in size is to use an extra box that has a dotted rule at 1pt, set to black @ 20% tint/opacity. Vary the tint value so they are barely visible (I often work on gray laid paper). I still use a straight edge, but all I need to do is drop the edge on the line and cut, ...

Hooray, as this answer states: With InDesign, generally the reason an image is not displayed in the Links panel is because it has been pasted into InDesign. The script available at the page below will extract pasted (and embedded) images. See here: http://www.kahrel.plus.com/indesign/unembed_images.html It was created by Peter Kahrel. ...

You can, by changing InDesign's default Justifications parameters. However, you should not do nor want to do that. Starting with replicating your result: – this is 11/13 pt Times New Roman in a frame 60.5mm wide –, I found I had to insert multiple spaces in exactly those places in your "total mess". In modern typesetting, entering multiple spaces in ...

Start setting up dedicated master layers when creating masters. Even though the master layers are visible in layers panel when working in a regular page, only the items you have released from master can be selected / will be listed in your master layers.

You need to profile both. 1) The basic idea is that you buy or rent one hardware like http://www.colormunki.com/ 2) You follow instructions on calibrating your monitor, the hardware analizes patches of color the inner software generates and adjust the output accordingly. 3) You print a sample of color patches provided with the hardware's software, scan ...

The only way I can think to do this is to create a master pages with pre-defined text frames positioned where you want them. If Column A on the left will always be the header (your red bar) and only your header, and there will never be headers in any other column, then create your master page called header that way. Your text will flow into the container ...

Paragraph styles do affect the numbers of the footnote text (or at least they should, I can't find a way for them not to). If you want to style the number differently to the body of the footnote then you can use nested styles (or drop caps). As you can see, I have applied a drop cap style to the first character of the paragraph style. The entire number ...

If I understand correctly, you'll need to create two paragraph styles. 1) Create a paragraph style (bullet style #1) for the first line of the bullet list. 2) Duplicate that first paragraph style and rename it (ex. bullet style #2) and add a "left indent" value. 3) Go back to the first paragraph style (bullet style #1) and make sure you select ...

Adobe Creative Suite, since it's beginnings, was optimized to integrate InD, AI and PS. When using InDesign, the best way to place images with a transparent background is to simply save your PSD file as a PSD making sure the background is deleted and you see the transparency grid. That's it, no need for a clipping path, or to save as TIFF (it will not work ...

Adobe Comp Like Indesign Adobe Sketch Like Illustrator Adobe Fix Like Photoshop Adobe Mix Like Photoshop Note: You will probably need an Adobe CC subscription to use those apps. Possibly through mirroring the display ( desktop to ...
