You don't need to do anything other than ensure the bleeds are set in the Document Set Up and you include bleeds when exporting to PDF. Just place the image (or whatever) across the gutter of the facing pages. When you output facing pages to a standard single page press-ready PDF the bleed will be added to the gutter area. You simply don't see the bleed ...

Command/Ctrl+Shift+click the item(s) you want to override on the page you want them overridden on. This will unlock them from the master page and make them in-page elements.

Master pages, as suggested by Vincent, will help you not need to lay out each spread every time you create a page. The simplest way to do this is to lay out one page, place the first image, then duplicate that page. Note that you can multiselect within the Pages tool, then select Duplicate, so you don't have to do this 300 times. Fit the image within the ...

a better workflow Instead of going to the trouble of adding a rich black to the logo, make it transparent where it should be black and save in a transparency-supporting file format eg. PSD. use acrobat to review Instead of relying in the InDesign preview, output to PDF and open the Output Preview window (Tools > Print Production > ...). There you will ...

Well, you can import external objects into InDesign in a easy way. If I remember correctly, you can do it with the shortcut Ctrl+D (Cmd + D on Mac). When you do that, there is a window with options for the Import features where you can customize the way you do it. There are options for tables, where you can keep the original format, or use plain text, or ...

That CMYK code for black is known as True black and is not that black on screen, but different appearances could be caused by the different colour profiles in PS or ID, and of course .pdf export settings, even though you used CMYK. Also, about looking different from different angles.... Is your monitor properly calibrated? Does your monitor have that wide ...

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
