The proper way, in my opinion, to typeset such paragraphs/columns is to use the Space After options for a paragraph style. Creating one paragraph style with the space, and one without the space. Then it's a simple matter to assign the paragraph style to the paragraphs. Using the Space After option, you will NEVER have an empty line feed at the top of any ...

Copy pasting not good, use linking instead. Save the pie as an AI file and on its on artboard. I'm guessing you already have that. Drag the AI file into the INDD document, which creates a live link of the AI file, without actually dumping the artwork into the INDD document. The same result is achieved by using the File → Place command to link external files ...

Embedded generally means they are in a linked file and therefore not directly accessible from within InDesign. i.e. You "place" an Illustrator/Photoshop file with type into InDesign..... the font for live type in Illustrator/Photoshop becomes "embedded" in InDesign.

Set the text color to [None]. Text "with color" will always appear in a PDF, even if there are objects covering it or you select 'white' as its color.

Add spacing to the bottom to this particular text frame that suits your fonts descenders + additional space that you want.

All you need to do is "shuffle" your single pages so they are set up in spreads: Note: You don't have to use a 2-page master if you don't need variations between the left and right pages. You can use the same master page for all pages if it is appropriate. The animation above, while showing the concept, was originally created to show how to handle ...

You can use Layers in InDesign – also on Master pages. So if, for example you want text to always be visible on top of images or backgrounds, you can place the text frame on a separate layer (stack layers accordingly: the layer at the top of the list is the topmost to be displayed). A common use-case are page numbers: You usually place them on the master ...

It sounds like you probably make the error of duplicating your style without having the new styling selected. To create a new paragraph style from a paragraph style with overrides do like this: Select a paragraph which has the overrides you want to turn into a new paragraph style (or just place the cursor within the paragraph). In the Paragraph Styles panel,...
