Here is a script for InDesign which allows you to randomize the tracking of the individual characters selected text. The script has two settings: minTracking which sets the lowest allowed tracking and maxTracking which sets the highest allowed tracking. Script // settings var minTracking = -100; var maxTracking = 100; // main function function main() { /...

In your example, the numbers come after the titles, so I assume that's what you want. If you aren't going to update your TOC, you can just manually edit it like any other text. If you need it to be able to update automatically, you need to enter Layout > Table of Contents and make sure that the Page Number comes After Entry. Furthermore set Between Entry ...

An image would need to extend over the edge of the sheet to form a bleed. So you'd need to extend the image itself if there are parts of it that you don't want to be cut off. It's possible using content aware filling in software such as Photoshop or even free software such as GIMP. Success for this kind of automatic filling is often dependent on the kind of ...

It can't be done natively with InDesign. InDesign has no way of linking master pages or document sections to paragraph styles. It can be done with commercial add-ons for InDesign though, such as my own Mastermatic.

There are a couple different ways I can think to do this. Others may have better suggestions. For me, I'd use the first method below with anchored text frames. First .... merely using anchored text frames Make each "Name of workplace" item a separate text frame. Align the separate frames with each Job Title accordingly. Then you can anchor those ...

I had the exact same problem and removing the cache files solved it for me.

I don't think you can turn paths into actual Guides in InDesign. I'm positive you can't in CS6. However, you can merely place the paths on a layer and then lock the layer. You may also want to set the Layer Options to "non-printing" so the paths don't mistakenly get included if you fail to turn off the layer before outputting. Creating guides from ...

You might have to re-save your .ai file as an Illustrator 2020 (or newer, if you are reading this when a new file format is announced). I was having the same issue, however, the option to see other "pages" (artboards) was not available. After doing a Save-As over the original file, the option showed to choose the artboard from the Place File ...

Sounds to me like the [Paper] swatch has been edited to appear as black. The [Paper] swatch is never printed under any circumstances – it’s meant to emulate the colour of the page you’re printing on, and you obviously don’t want to double the ‘background’ colour. But conversely, if you’re making something that’s going to be printed on coloured paper, it’s ...

It can be done via scripting, but why for? Just rename the folder Links1 to Links and reopen the document. Then, If you need, rename the folder Links back to Link1 and rename the folder Links2 to Links. And reopen your doc again. And so on. The script does just the same thing: Initial folders: Links, Links2, Links3, Links4 Run script 1: Links <-- former ...

This solution works great: (?<=\s)\w{1,3}\W+ only that it won't work for when more than one 1-3 letter words are next to each other, in that case it will skip every other word. I propose to add a second grep style to account for this (?<=\s)\w{1,3}\W+\w{1,3}\W+ and can keep going to find 3,4,5.. 1-3 letter words together. There is probably a smarter ...

Never mind. ##.+?## is the answer. Sometimes after ages of struggle you simply have to ask the question to suddenly find the answer yourself. +? keeps the search to the first complete sequence.

Printing or not printing the guides is an on/off feature of the Print panel. Make sure to uncheck that. You've probably turned this on by accident, or using a preset which does that.

Maybe one of the checkboxes in the options section (print dialogue) is activated by mistake? http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_KEWvt1mbkkI/Sn7_uKRGXaI/AAAAAAAAAM8/-5idR6jEtPY/s320/a.jpg ("Options" under "Pages")

Colour profiles such as the "Iso Coated v2" have about 2.5 MB. Maybe a profile is applied in the pdf export presets.

Check if you have any leftover artwork outside the pages on any of the layers. Try exporting the EN and ES with the PNGs removed, obvioulsy without saving the INDD file. If you still get the file size difference, the problem is not in the PNGs. Otherwise, there must be something different in the PNGs. Check transparency, pixel size, etc.

Thanks to the comments under my question and some additional research I was able to figure this out: Yes, it is possible and reasonable to compensate the media white point of a target color profile—but it depends on the case. Since I’m mostly using Adobe InDesign I will describe the solution within that context. The general idea applies to other applications ...

Fonts will not always include what you expect them to include. As mentioned in the comments, you need a font which actually has the ⌘ and everything else you need. If you paste this ⌘ and it does not display with your selected font, you need to use another font. Not every font out there includes these characters. Not every font out there will even include ...

Not sure what's wrong here. But Illustrator doesn't like it for some reason. Illustrator doesn't even seem to import the paths that make up the text, they're simply missing. It must have something to do with the way the SVG is constructed. Anyway, I got it to work by opening in Inkscape (which is free), selected everything, changed the fill to black, then I ...

I bet the text is there, its just flattened white path on white background. Try to run the file through some SVG cleaner / minimizer / converter. File looks ok when opened in text editor.

If your design isn't part of a longer document you can use the following solution. It's perhaps a little bit hacky, but it works. Set up your document as Facing Pages and make each page half of the final width. So if your final size for example is 300 × 200 mm you could set it up like this: This will give you a document that looks like this: Draw your two ...

You need to use the Create Merged Document feature for the actual data to be pulled from the CSV into the Data Merge fields and baked into a new file, which can then be: distributed in a grid as multiple records per page (see images below) printed
