comment Match web color to fabric swatch
While everything you say is correct, I will say that my personal experience (color-matching separations to antique paintings) is to ignore color temperature and ideal conditions and focus on the real-world setting.

comment Can a Word Document Be turned into a Data Stream To allow for Editing over the Network to Update a link into InDesign?
One thing you need to look out for in all this (from experience). Editing a document virtually always will reflow text. Silent automatic updating, especially in a busy environment with complex documents is dangerous and can get expensive when you have to throw a print run away.

Then again, as a single-person design team, I have only EVER stored all my files on a server. Yes, indesign chokes if the network drops momentarily.

Consider that in the vast majority of cases, specifying dpi is like saying you are looking for a glove in a a size 12 shoe.

Like jooja says, you can uncheck interpolate, but if you change the ppi of your 100 x 100 image and then go back an reset the pixel size to 100 x 100 before hitting OK, that is the same as "no interpolation"

Don't edit the PPI. It is not relevant. How big in inches is the final printed size?

comment Point vs Pixel: What is the difference?
@da01: yeah I agree, squareness (or not) is a function of their rendering to output, but the pixel data is stored as a single number in an one-dimensional array. One could use the same data to render, say, a hex-grid etc.

comment How can I create scalable half tone patterns for images in Adobe Indesign?
@AleGummy: I am confused: you say option 1 is impossible, but the accepted answer is exactly what I suggested without the most important step. If you set images at random percentages and then halftone them, how is this different than halftoning and then resizing? It isn't. You need to halftone the image at 100% size and place at 100% size to ensure that all the halftones have a uniform dot size and also ensure none of them have moire and scaled-halftone issues.

comment How do I reduce the luminance of this sky without it looking weird?
Since there is a mask involved, it is easy to edit the mask if one needs to limit or expand the effect.

comment How can I share swatch palette between desktop and laptop?
In indesign, in addition to export/import to a swatch file, one can import swatches directly from an existing document.

comment Which serif font is suitable for a manual and best matches Arial for length of text?
This is called "text reflow" and you are looking to minimize it. The best thing for you to do is to put several paragraphs of text in a text box, duplicate it, and then try different typefaces in one copy of the box until you find the font which changes the size of the text the least.
