Assuming you're looking for 8.5 x 11 (since you provided no dimensions), I just googled for trifold brochure templates and found several links. Here is one for you: http://www.expresspressprinting.com/id80.html If you are designing a brochure that will letterfold, meaning the 3rd panel will fold inside the 1st and 2nd panels, you must provide gripper ...

"Paragraph composer" means that ID will shuffle hyphens and line breaks throughout an entire paragraph to make it "look better" according to some arcane Adobe algorithm. "Single-line composer" means ID will only hyphenate where its internal dictionaries and your hyphenation settings tell it to hyphenate on a per-line basis, and other than checking "number ...

You can add Javascript inside a PDF and make the form inside the PDF make an HTTP call to a web-service. This way the only requirement for your client is having an internet connection. See the Acrobat SDK: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/acrobat/acrobat_dc_sdk/2015/HTMLHelp/#t=Acro12_MasterBook%2FJS_API_AcroJSPreface%2FJS_API_AcroJSPreface.htm

Maybe I will not address your question to 100%, but I found more general solution for making indexes. My clients often want me to create index from MS Word document with the list of words to be included in index. Of course Word has it's own tool for it but you have to put index words manually word by word. My colleagues also want me to create the index in ...

Thanks a lot to everyone who tried to find solution of my problem. Special thanks to @13ruce advice I found very nice and simple solution. I use PDF Toolkit server and its feature of combining two files into the third one. The general PDFTK string is: pdftk K=black.pdf C=color.pdf cat K1-2 C3 C4 C5 C6 C7 C8 C9 C10 K11 K12 output out.pdf In this example ...

Found my own answer, so posting here for others: In InDesign, export as EPS. In the dialog window that follows, there is a Bleed option. Set that to your current bleed width and export. Each page will be exported as a separate EPS file, but won't preserve artboard dimensions. The art will be the right size though. In Illustrator, open the EPS file. Edit ...

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, ...

They are all the same profile. The name of the profile is sRGB IEC61966-2.1. The other labels are just where they are set: Working RGB says your program is using that RGB mode. Yes you can work in a space that does not reflect the document setting. Document RGB says the document is specifying that RGB mode. They are all the same profile though and result ...

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. ...

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 ...

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. ...

There's no way to make InDesign do it. But there's plenty of ways to make the Finder/Explorer do it. Hazel on the Mac and Belvedere on Windows, for instance, can fix this problem for you, by automatically copying the file at certain intervals to a new folder and giving it a timestamp.

Firstly your need to add some navigation in so that you can move between the pages.

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}); ...

don't use copy/paste--always use the place command in Indesign. sorry that really didn't answer your ques--this will--when you copy/paste from illustrator--the vectors will be editable vector elements in Indesign--the reason no resize box is there--is because Indesign see the vectors as having been created in Indesign so there is no frame--if you want to ...

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 ...

If you're looking to make a Table of Contents and the built-in tool can't perform the formatting the way you like (and if I'm right about this, it can't), then the next-best thing is to utilize cross-references. It's more time-intensive to setup, but it's also format-proof. This may seem counterintuitive if you've always made TOC's with the TOC tool and ...

If you change the size of the page manually (File > Document Setup), it will change the size of all pages, not just this page. I'm going to approach this as if you are a super beginner (no problem with that) and you're dropping everything in as a single illustrator file. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Here are two things I'd advise: Quick Solution: ...

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 ...

Your files look alright here, besides the bleed missing ;) Maybe it's a hardware performance related issue. I couldn't reproduce the issue with or without the different rendering in the Acrobat preferences (smooth and all) but I suspect Acrobat is "working" on that rendering; try without the smooth line and all the rendering effect in Acrobat preferences ...

In our company similar situation with network links. As a result, I made a small script.

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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. ...

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 do a Find/Change to delete them all. Find: ^n (that’s the code for a forced line break) and leave the Change blank. Choose Document in the dropdown so it does the find/change in all the stories, rather than only the active one.

An easy way is to use Adobe Acrobat Pro to convert all your PDF pages into JPG WITHIN the PDF; this way you won't have to waste time assembling again your pages together. You can create your PDF as you normally do in InDesign and then use the Preflight function in Acrobat Pro to convert all your pages to images by creating a custom profile for it. ...

"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 ...

The easiest way to keep the text styling the same is to use the same paragraph style on both sets of text. The only way to force line-to-line alignment across a spread is if your "spread" is actually one horizontal page made of an enormous two-column table, and each pair of lines is one row in the table. This is not workable if you're doing anything more ...

Sure, that's possible. You may, however, add this functionality in Acrobat, as InDesign may not provide the needed user interface to do it.

ok I just figured out this is indeed possible. What I would need to do is just create some element to serve as a page break and bookmark it. So when I make the "Next page" button I can just click "go to destination" and select the bookmark I want it to load to.

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 -- ...

It essentially is possible. However, the main work would better be done in Acrobat than InDesign. You can place form fields in the "interactive PDF" document in InDesign, including button fields at the place where the images should go. If you want to use simple text fields, be aware that you then specify all text properties for that field; if multiple text ...

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) ...

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 ...

First, how are you designing the buttons? Did you pull them from the sample buttons menu or did you just make a box and set it as a button? What it looks like to me is the appearance layers are mixed up. Go into your "Buttons and Forms" pane and look at the appearance and see if you see a box in the mouseover selection, check the click on and click off ...

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 ...

It's helpful to assign a shortcut to the Type-->change case-->option of your choice. That way you can put in your search string and then when it highlights it, you just hit your keyboard combo and then hit find next and keep on going.

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 ...
