Go to the Pages window and there, double-click your master page. In place of the page numbers, you will see a letter. This gets replaced by the page number on actual pages. Select this letter and delete it. Now make sure to have your caret on position to replace that character, if you were to type. Go to Type → Insert Special Character → Markers → Previous ...

Ok 1 of 3 things you could be talking about... Option 1, changing the document to start with page 2 (typically used for when you're trying to avoid the first page in a "Facing Pages" layout. Option 2, you have your pagination set on your master pages: Use the selection tool (V) then hold Cmd+Shift(Mac) or Ctrl+Shift(Windows) while clicking it to ...

Children's t-shirt graphics are, of course, smaller. Adult graphics are generally the same size because unless you're designing for a company such as Big Dog, who specializes in larger sizes, the number of extra large sizes which are sold is very small in relation to the normal small-medium-large sizes. Much will depend upon who your end customer will be - ...

You could use the diagonal line options.... Table > Cell Options > Diagonal Lines While a bit limited, it would offer some variations, especially if you use color in conjunction with line directions.

You're right that Corel Draw is like Illustrator. InDesign is for larger, sometimes much larger publications and when combined with other Adobe applications is incredibly robust. A few key features that InDesign provides. I've never used Corel Draw so this is compared to Illustrator but did glance online to see which of these Corel Draw offers and believe ...

The basic idea Corel Draw and Ilustrator are mainly for vector based ilustrations. This is very broad, it can be a logo, and icon or inclusive almost photorealistic vector based images. It can also be used for layout. This is for printed materials, flyers, posters, etc. This can combine photographs, vector based images and text. On the other hand, the ...

As per the Adobe InDesign website: InDesign is a page layout tool. The program allows you to collect graphical (raster and vector) and textual content into a layout, enabling easy multi-page processing and powerful exporting options for both print and digital purposes. And I feel like an Adobe salesman now. InDesign has powerful tools for easy workflows ...

Put simply: Illustrator is for creating vector graphics, logos and single page layouts. InDesign is for creating single and multi-page layouts using elements created in illustrator/photoshop/corel etc Yes you are correct that CorelDraw is basically very similar to Illustrator.

This is a problem with inDesign that many users suffer from! Here is a detailed tutorial on how to fix this issue so that the dimensions are measured just like illustrator. http://www.nineteenfortyone.com/2011/05/indesign-dimensions-include-stroke-weight/ The trick is to set the "Dimensions include Stroke Weight" setting within the software.

I've seen others use Fire Alpaca, a software that mimics Photoshop in many ways. Its user friendly, and similar to Photoshop in tools and menus. A student of mine found it and used it for a graphic novel spread. It handles both high res pixel-based images and low-res output. http://firealpaca.com/en

Just package the file, then navigate to the Package folder on your hard drive and delete the "Document Fonts" folder within it. There is, of course, also the option to "copy fonts" in the packaging dialog, just uncheck that.

CS5 and CS6 both should work completely fine on your laptop, doesn't matter if you want to use Ps, Ai, or ID. Check this link, Intel HD 4000 is on the Adobe approved list. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-cs6-gpu-faq.html

Whoops, there is an easy way to do this, it's just not where I expected it to be. It's on the save dialog screen at the end of the process, here (note that for some reason it appears to not work for Chinese, Japanese and Korean fonts): I was expecting it to be in the earlier screen similar to how InDesign's PDF export options are set out, here, but it's ...

I've been using Affinity Photo beta (instead of Photoshop) for a while now and it's a great alternative! AP even uses most of the same keyboard shortcuts as PS, and the UI is beautiful.

If you see a pale gray background: This problem often happens when using a layer mask but not a C100-M100-Y100-K100 black to cover your image on the layer mask. As a result, there will be a very small transparency since not all 4 channels are covered at 100%; some will be covered at 95%, some at 99%, etc. It's very hard to see on screen because it can ...

No, you cannot. There is a very simple reason for this too. All characters in a font have a little bit of whitespace to its left and right side. Without this, the characters would touch each other (in the current font design systems, anyway). In addition, it's debatable what 'the left edge' is, for any given character and/or font. For instance, do you count ...

Took a while, but I found it: When choosing the file to place, in the bottom left, tick "Show import options": Under Options, switch to one of Crop, Trim, Bleed or Media. These will respect the whitespace - they're the same unless the placed file has crop and bleed or media settings that InDesign understands, in which case, choose whichever suits your ...

Set the resoulution on the export dialogue high (150 - 300 ppi) and JPEG Quality to High or Max. This will increase filesize.

If you want the electronic version to truly mimic the print version, use spreads. Just make sure your inside margin (on the binding side) is generous enough for your binding method. (I'm not sure what that would be in the case of OTA binding).

You could use a Table of Contents for this. For every photo create a textframe with the respective photo credits and put it on the same page as the photo itself (you can of course also use captions for this). You may choose to put these textframes in a seperate layer, to easily hide them. Give these textframes a specific paragraph style (say ...

Simple and fastest way. Save your illustrator vectors as an EPS or PDF (High Quality, or Press Quality). Then simply File > Place in InDesign.

Don’t paste content into InD! Okay, that takes care of that nightmare. I’ll let others explain the limited exceptions to the rule. Check your vector display settings InDesign tries to spare your memory by displaying linked vector files in a pixelated preview mode. It assumes you know what it looks like. However, unless you’re working in ...

Using InDesign and linking to external files via File > Place is generally the best method. While copy/pasting is certainly possible from Illustrator to InDesign, the paste can sometimes be problematic to edit later depending upon the actual artwork. Using the Place method allows you to edit the original, in Illustrator, then the link will update. ...

Don’t mis-use Sections. The divider which you want to use is Part.

In the table of contents set-up, you've got ^y instead of ^t in the "Between Entry and Number" field. I don't know if this is your only problem, but the Indesign Reference Manual (updated as of June 15, 2015) suggests this.

First.. there is no such thing as a "standard" PDF. What does that even mean? What is a "standard" pdf??? If anything, there are "PDF Standards" which is the PDF/X format. PDF/X-1a comes with some valuable restrictions on the data it can contain. All color must be greyscale, CMYK, or Spot colors. RGB data is not allowed in a PDF/X-1a file. All fonts ...

PDF is a complex standard that includes a huge number of features, and the kitchen sink on top of that. Not all of those features are conducive to print production (for example, hyperlinks). PDF/X requires that your document is prepared for print. That is: All fonts are embedded in the file All images are in CMYK or in spot color mode, OR contain color ...

It looks like the design was done in RGB and then coverted to CMYK OR the designer simply didn't care and used a wrong black recipe for the color. Here are some details about black and rich black for printing. What you can do as a shortcut, is to either use the "selective color" adjustment or "levels"; but that requires a lot of work and care because it ...

One trick is to simply make the background of this logo in Photoshop a lot bigger and use the same black recipe for it! Then you won't need to use another black in Indesign and you'll make sure the same color is applied and will be printed. Here are more details on rich black and what to verify when working with black background as your design uses. ...

I don't know why you choose that rich black combination in the first place. You probably don't want a neutral gray but a warm red. Also, when doing a print job you can simply use the values of the colors you expect, not a transparency which, depending on the ink and blending modes you use, throw different results. A neutral rich black, needs to have some ...

To my knowledge, there is no way or preferences settings to really insert a copied element exactly at the same coordinate relative to the document that welcomes the "placed" elements. But there are some good old tricks that can save you some time. Maybe you already know them. Personally, I love using the coordinate numbers because it's the most precise ...

Best is not defined, one of my pet peeves. Best in this case depends on what you know how to use. You will naturally get the answer that you should use InDesign because you mention the word 'cover'. This leads people to think about print publication and the correct answer for designing publications is InDesign. But this answer also casually glosses over the ...

Because of how you black is being decomposed, you'll always see the other tone when using a rich black, especially if you use high density of colors other than black in your recipe. As you know, your rich black has a large tint of magenta, it's totally normal the gradient will look a bit brown. In Photoshop, the only way you could achieve what you want ...

If you want the grey color to show, then you can't change the overlaying object's opacity to do it, as that will always result in the color behind showing through. My first choice would be to build the grey fade into the Photoshop doc, but if you must do it in InDesign, then you should save the grey object as a gradient in Photoshop from opaque in the center ...

If your works related to printing medias, I suggest you to use InDesign. If you have knowledge to work in Photoshop, It will be easy to learn to work with InDesign. Having clear understanding about Pixels, Vectors and resolutions will give better quality to work

I would layout a cover like this in InDesign. Especially if the document has many other pages following. The photos I would edit in Photoshop and if there was any more complex vector graphics I would use Illustrator to do this. You could probably do the whole thing except the photo editing with any of those tools though. The tool for lay outing pages is ...

The way ePub work is very similar to how older 90' websites used to work with the benefits of CSS. You can use basic functions of HTML and CSS if you want to keep it "safe" (eg. fully compatible with pretty much any eReader.) They don't work like websites from the 90' but what I mean is you need to keep it simple. The only quick (but not fancy) solution I ...

There's really nothing to worry about in terms of output. All that's being done is the text frame is getting a color applied to it. It's no different than placing a colored rectangle behind the text frame. Output would be the same, it's only the production method that is changing (and is easier).

Off the top my head I'm pretty sure it's grouped as a guide so you can try command/alt + ; to toggle visibility.

As it turned out, I could just edit them away in the story editor. They are hyperlinks anchors. Still, I have no idea how the got there.

Todays Adobe CC Update (2015) brought the solution to this problem. You can now enable paragraph shading to add a background to paragraph styles.

No. Templates are a one-direction mechanism. You start from the template and then the template is no longer referenced. In other words, templates are only referenced when a new file is opened. They aren't "linked" to anything after that. Making changes to a template after the fact does nothing to alter any files previously started with that template. That ...

If you want to make sure your PDF is "clean", you can always use the "/Save as/Optimized PDF" option in the Acrobat Pro "File" menu. Then you can look at the options, and check every boxes in the sections "discard objects", "discard user data" and "clean up"; this will flatten your layers, remove the extra data that might be invisible and as it says, clean ...
