There are probably either alternate glyphs for the character or ligatures that include that character in the font. You can check if this is the case in InDesign by opening the Glyphs panel (Window → Type & Tables → Glyphs) and searching for any other glyphs that include that character. You can open the font in any font manager or editor and check the ...

Typekit lets you sync fonts in its library between systems that are signed in with the same account credentials. Unfortunately this doesn't allow you to sync fonts downloaded externally. One app that can do this, however, is Rightfont. It allows you to sync fonts – any fonts – across multiple computers using Dropbox or Google Drive, and lets you preview and ...

Enable the Paragraph Rule: Above for your style. Set its weight to 0 and (you never know) its color to [None]. Check "Keep in Frame"; then, use "Offset" to move the paragraph down. Apart from using the Rule Above (which you may need to, ehm, draw a rule above), the only drawback is that the Offset is calculated from the baseline of your paragraph. That ...

One solution is to vertically offset the text negatively as much as you need and set a space after enough to compensate. This isn't the cleanest of workarounds—To edit the text you need to select the text where it should be, not where you can see it, for example—but it works. A better option would probably be creating a new master page, as ...

For answers that are better for your question, a screenshot would be helpful. Something that helps others see what you're trying to achieve. Possible solution Create a separate Master Page for the chapter title page and let the main text frame start lower on the page. Adding space before a paragraph that is first in the text frame is not possible, as I ...

I would suggest using Illustrator for this. I do this whenever I manually need to tile graphics of different sizes. Example: Say my Blueprint is 17" W x 22" H (4x 8.5x11 sheets) I would create multiple Artboards of 8.5x11 with no spacing. Then place your PDF, File -> Place. Make sure "Link" is checked. Save your PDF, File -> Save As -> Adobe PDF. ...

According to Adobe's website: Media Box Crops to the original size of the page. Crop Box Crops to the clipping region (crop margins) of the PDF file. Bleed Box Crops to ...

Yes, it's possible. Would I want to do it? No way, except for a book of 24 pages of full-color photographs and no text. Then I might do it in Photoshop. The thing about most "books" is that they contain linked columns of flowing text, plus generated text such as tables of contents, indexes, lists of illustrations, page numbers, and more. NONE of those is ...

For better results, you could use pen tool instead of magic wand tool in Photoshop. Using pen tool create shape around the border and than make selection of it. After selection just crop it using ctr+shift+i to invert selections. It will give you a border with more refined result.

On the top menu Select>Color Range Then click on any white part of the image and move the tolerancy slider to get more or less accurate on the selection of the color. when you click OK you'll get a selection of all the white color on the image, if you press delete you'll remove all the white from the image.

Instead of the magic wand tool you could try the magnetic lasso tool. This tool will snap to the edges of the border, but will not select the white background behind the border. If you want a bit more refined result you could invert your selection and apply a slight feather to it. This will make the line a bit smoother. Or instead of a feather you could ...

Every Adobe product has a purpose for which it should be properly used. InDesign is mainly used to organize text and images and design layouts like you can see mostly in newspapers and magazines. Photoshop is usually used for editing "pixel" based images such as a photo. The advantage of using Photoshop is its ability to view effects as you apply them, and ...

When you Save As, it may "replace" your file in Illustrator but your original file will still exist (and you can open it back up). So if your file is AI and you save as PDF the AI file will still exist. You can always use "Save A Copy..." instead if you prefer to keep the original open while saving the other format. Here's a recording I did showing the ...

You may need to save/name it in different format one for viewing .pdf type & another for editing .ai type. Hope this helps. Thanks
