I created a file with those dimensions and dpi, Photoshop issued a warning that images larger than 30000 pixels in any would not be backward compatible. When I wanted to save this file, I had to save it in PSB format reserved for files larger than 2GB. Also noteworthy was the missing PDF format among the option. Based on this, I will conclude that these ...

This category can range wildly from advertising posters, vehicle wraps, 2 story billboards, etc. The variable to consider is the distance the viewer will be from the material. A person driving on a highway will never be able to discern the difference between 300dpi on a billboard and 40dpi. You would up close, of course, but the only people viewing a ...

Absolute easiest? Move in the edges of your picture box to cover the crops. If the PDF is a multi page PDF, check the options box in your window and it will let you select which page you want to place.

I would crop the PDF to remove the printers marks. In Adobe Acrobat Pro: Open the PDF and select Document > Crop Pages and select Trim Box You could then place the PDF in line with your document edges as if it were a standard asset.

You are not pasting into a text frame, you are pasting into a text flow. The only way to tell inDesign where in this flow you want the image(s) is to place the cursor and paste. If you want all the objects in a single place, group them before copying. If you are trying to incorporate runaround, then don't do it this way, place images beside the text and ...

Import the images using XML? Just create a basic XML file which references the graphics in question. Alternately, get the filenames into the text flow and use a script which will replace the filenames w/ the matching graphics.

Definitely PDF!!! Can't stress this enough as I've been struggling with a similar issue over the past week. CVS, Walgreens etc. only accept JPEG files for printing. I am trying to print a large poster with text that I created in Illustrator. Each time I export as JPEG it looks totally clear on the screen, but when printed it comes out super pixelated and ...

Hard to say exactly, but I can suggest some things to check: -- A right indent applied to just that paragraph. -- A hidden object on another layer that is causing the wrap. -- A hard return inserted into the text. -- An empty text box in the layout that is causing the text to wrap.

I think it is not possible to select all stories at once with the UI. You will have to iterate through all paragraphs in all textframes in all stories or the selected story. Should be something like (not tested): edit: remove textframes as suggested by Jongware for (var s = 0; app.documents[0].stories.length; s++) { for (var p = 0; p < ...

You can also do this in Illustrator. You just make one business card and write a script that changes the name and exports out a printable copy, then changes the name to the next one on the list and exports out a printable copy, and so on. The advantage is you don’t have to make 50 pages in InDesign, and this would also scale to 10,000 names if you like. ...

1) Real Screen resolution It is a little dificult to answer becouse we dont know which software the tv has or inclusive the resolution. At 50" it could be either Full HD or 4k. There are a cuple of 4k sizes, but probably it is 3840 x 2160px. If it is full HD it is 1920 x 1080 px. There is also a posibility it is a standard HD if it is a cheap TV. 1280 x ...

Johannes is right, but give it a try and export as PNG24 set to sRGB, make sure to set the right resolution for the TV HDMI I suppose, 1920x1200px or 1920x1080px and try 96dpi instead of 72. If there is still JPG-moiree it's hardware based. If it's just blurred and streached it's the false resolution or aspect ratio. Due to colormanagement-reasons it's ...

It is likely that you are exporting an image that is very small and it is getting scaled up by the TV and therefore looks terrible. If the TV is HD (likely) then it is natively showing a 1920x1080 pixel image. So for best quality, you want to export a 1920x1080 image at 72 dpi (which means 1:1 pixel ratio — show 1 pixel of image in 1 pixel of TV screen.) ...

@zachzurn... I actually came across this write up and it might be exactly what you are looking for. https://indesignsecrets.com/outlining-fonts-the-2016-edition.php

As far as i know NO. But you could do sort of second stroke with dropshadow set to zero blur.

It's a combination between using Magic Mouse and Preferences in Adobe. So when Edit > Preferences > General > "Zoom with Scroll Wheel" is checked, then the Alt + scroll is disabled. But when you uncheck the option of "Zoom with Scroll Wheel", then Alt + scroll is enabled. So you could leave the "Zoom with Scroll Wheel" checked and change/disable ...

A quick fix for now would be to use your Photoshop PDF, then apply hyperlinks using Acrobat Pro. This is found in the edit PDF menu.

Answering my own question because I have finally (finally!!!) figured it out. You are supposed to use section prefixes, not section markers. To mark page 2-1, for instance, put 2- in the prefix box and make sure "Include Prefix When Numbering Pages" is checked.

NVM....just saw the "ignore text wrap" checkbox on the text frame options! Problem solved. Open the Text Frame Options menu: Check this box:

Thanks @jongware, that did it. In case someone else finds this thread in the future, here's what I did: Clicked the first page in my doc Went to Main Menu Layout > Numbering & Section options Under Page Numbering, choose 01,02,03 etc. from the dropdown

My first guess would be to check your display settings: Display settings have no effect on the final output of your document, they merely control how detailed your images are displayed in-program.

InDesign doesn't always play nice with picking up gradients from other Adobe applications. If I were you I'd just select the shape you made in InDesign, and Place (File > Place... or Ctrl/Cmd+D the gradient's file into the shape. Some adjustments with the White Arrow tool should get you where you want to be. Alternatively, you could try to make the gradient ...

InDesign's color picker is not easy to select colors along a light-to-dark scale. Possibly because this is a separate functionality in the 'color' panel found in window > color > color. I find that so frustrating that I just use Adobe Kuler for everything and bypass the color picker entirely. Kuler is an extension enabled in window > extensions > Kuler.

Depends on what the contract says. Typically the freelance designer owns the source files and will deliver you a finished version for you to use, example a PDF for print. If the designer works for the company then the company would own the source files. All this really depends on what the company and the freelance designer agreed to. If you're ...

You should not leave any marks on the part that gets printed because, well, then it'd show up on your printed cards! Find out how much bleed the printer requires for your job. Set this as usual in your InDesign document; then add an extra slug amount. The Bleed is for printed content that may (usually accidentally!) appear on the extreme borders of your ...

Adobe InDesign is not meant for creating reliable imposed PDF files. I always hate when I see an answer like "Why would you want to do that?" ... now I am guilty of asking it. For the last 5 years or so, there is no professional printer asking to deliver the imposition. Please check this link, where you will see even the staff of Adobe passing the ...

ePub is not an editable format. You can consider it to be a piece of paper you are printing to. In the same way that it is not possible to print to paper from InDesign and then load that paper back into InDesign for editing, it is not possible to roundtrip ePub either. PDF is specifically designed for this purpose. It can maintain editable vectors and even ...

Sorry, ID doesn't work that way; it's not like Photoshop. If you open the CS5 document in any later version of the program, it will convert it. You don't have the option to save an earlier InDesign file; you can only save as an IDML. If you don't want multiple documents, then either don't work on it in CS6, or save the IDML in CS5 immediately when you get ...

I'm not certain if you're asking if there's a way to replace automatically links that have new file names or update all links without doing it manually. So these are probably very simple ways you already know. Unfortunately I don't know any script or plugin that can replace different files with different names. To update all links that are in the same ...

It's because this is how pdfs recognises text – every line becomes in fact a paragraph (hence return at the end of it). There is no way round, you have to change it globally in documents, after copying, using Find/Replace option and hidden characters.

This may result from converting text to outlines. Paragraph based text should not render the issue you're experiencing. Also consider your PDF export options.

Once you (or your designer) have the completed design of the PDF, to make it interactive (with formulas), that is not to be done in InDesign. To make a form, see suggestion here: Creating an indesign fillable form with computation (addition)

To fix your particular situation, I would simply save and import your .ai pages into your indesign document. (File -» Import). Make sure you check "Import options" to select all the artboards. That will keep your text and visuals crisp and vectorised. For the future, the generally desirable workflow is to use inDesign for all your text treatment and ...

Updated Answer: The problem is that using a paragraph break for every new line means that every line is a paragraph and using GREP paragraph styles you can only target a single paragraph. Theres no way to tell if you are on the first line because every line is the first line. The only way to get around that would be to test if the paragraph before is ...

InDesign has three levels of display quality. To change this, choose Edit → Preferences → Display Performance (Windows) or InDesign → Preferences → Display Performance (Mac). You can then select one of the following settings: Fast: optimizes performance, the entire image or graphic is grayed out. Typical (Default): This setting makes bitmaps look a ...

That is a rule. In inDesign it is called a paragraph rule, and you can get to the configuration dialog via the paragraph palette drop-down menu, or via ctrl+alt+j/opt+cmd+j. You can also set rules in styles.

I don't know how that line was created so my first step would be to recreate that specific text style and then add the underline that adjusts to the text length and not the frame length. Create a new text box and write you title. Set the same font, colour, spacing so it matches what you already have. If you know how to disable that underline you don't need ...

As both softwares are vector based you could take advantage of those InDesign features and then export/copy the shapes to Illustrator. There's nothing similar in Illustrator to the feature you described. If it was me I would use Indesign to somehow create the base design and then copy the shape to Illustrator and proceed from there.

If the presentation needs to be done in Powerpoint, I wouldn't try to use a different platform. As you mentioned, your client might want to change things, so the format should be a popular and easy to edit one. Since re-usability seems to be an important point here, I would consider preparing a Powerpoint template for your client. A template contains ...
