There are plugins, XCatalog by Em Software comes to mind, but that isn't an inexpensive solution. However, it does babysit the process. Does InCopy provide any options for you?

I use: Command/Ctrl+Option/Alt+Shift+E (fit to frame proportionately) Command/Ctrl+Option/Alt+E (fill frame) Command/Ctrl+Shift+E (Center in frame) All these items can be found in the menu under Object > Fitting >

To avoid mousing over to the toolbar, or having to press the A key to switch to the Direct Selection Tool, you can just click the target in the center of your placed image (appears when you float your mouse over it). Then, as long as you have the content selected and not the frame (brown handles instead of blue), you can just drag the handles to scale the ...

Yes, with the image selected within the frame, press s (for the scale tool), click once to set the origin, then click-drag holding shift to resize the image. Or if your reference point (below) is set to the centre, you can skip straight to click-dragging. When preceded by command Fill Frame Proportionally this workflow is quite efficient. More on ...

There's a much easier way to achieve the effect you're after: that is, applying style-A to the first paragraph and style-B to the remainder. InDesign has a feature for it. Set up two Paragraph Styles as you'd like them. Then, edit style-A by setting it's "Next style" to style-B. (Next Style is found on the general tab of Paragraph Style Options.) Then, ...

This regular expression does it: \A[^\r]+

I don't think it's possible because in Indesign there is no carriage return character to define the end of a line the way you are thinking. There is a hard return that defines the end of a paragraph, and there is a soft return that defines a forced line break. The only way I know to style the first line is with a Nested Line Style. (bottom of the example ...

Following on from your (most excellent) set up: 5) Create a new character style, name it "non-italic" and set it's font style accordingly ("Regular" works in this example). 6) Bring up Find/Change, but leave the "Find what" and "Change to" fields blank. Beneath those fields you'll see Find Format. Specify Character Style as "italic" and Paragraph Style as ...

In Indesign, go to Edit>Transparency Flattener Presets, click on "High" as a starting point, then click on "New". In the dialog box that comes up, slide the raster/vector slider all the way to the left. Set the lifework resolution to around 1200/600/300 (whatever your printer's resolution is) and then set the gradient/mesh resolution to 150 or 300 if you are ...

Late answer... Watermarks You can easily designate any image as a watermark and position that watermark within an existing PDF. If the area for the logo is left blank, it's a simple matter of positioning the watermark to fall within that area.

If they are offset within their cells, reset the character, paragraph, table, or cell style. If they are offset by a cell or more, you need to adjust the spreadsheet to remove the additional cells. Removing or merging cells after you've imported a spread sheet will cause those cells to be present again if you update or reimport the same spread sheet. ...

This should provide a sufficient answer as there is a bit of a process. http://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/spell-checking-language-dictionaries.html

Lets try to make the comments an answer, shall we. Feel free to edit. First of all find out what software your client uses and what version (for example newer word files can embed pdf as images). Then you need to, preferably if at all possible, use that same version. Design in the same application as the client will be using, othervise you risk not being ...

You have two problems with this. One is getting the header and footer copy into the text you are importing. You can do this if you save the .doc as plain text (.txt), although it will strip out the formatting and you'll lose any images. The other is that InDesign doesn't know where to put the header and footer. You have to create text boxes for header text ...

I'm unable to reproduce this difference after trying with a number of layouts that include transparency effects and various kinds of linked vector and raster images. Three possible troubleshooting approaches: If your document includes any linked EPS files, convert them to AI files and relink. Export the document to IDML and create a fresh document from ...

I'm not really sure what you're asking, because your question doesn't make much sense to me. I believe that you are asking how to split one image across two pages? If so, ensure that when you make your new document you select "Facing Pages" Then, when you insert your image, simply make it cover the two facing pages. Below is a screen shot from ...

I think Alan is right in relation to your problem but doesn't your printer do the impositioning for you? You should get them to. It'll mean you'll get the right layout with any creep allowances and it will be ripped straight from your clean PDF with less possible issues.

Ginolin, I might have the answer for you. There are a couple of steps but what you're wanting can be achieved in InDesign. Be aware that it does bloat your files though (all image no vector). STEP 1 In InDesign, go to Edit > Transparency Flattener Presets Create a new preset and move the Vector/Raster Balance slider all the way to Raster Change both ...

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 ...

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 ...
