Actually this was not asked, but I have never seen it difficult to drag the columns to exact widths if needed. I have prepared some rectangles by inputting numerically their dimensions and dragged table columns (and rows as well, if needed ) to snap to them.

You need to use the Table Panel. Here you can specify the Column Width (and other useful settings). You can't enter percentages (or rather they work relative to the current cell size), but you could enter the percentages in a physical unit and then drag the table to fit the text frame. Perhaps you need to reenter the wanted Row Height afterwards as you might ...

"making the drawing in correct size in Illustrator to make the resizing unnecessary" Doing this is really the only way to ensure all placed images have the same stroke weight - in addition to ensuring all images are at the same scale in InDesign. There's no ability, feature, or mechanism for InDesign to see or understand the strokes within a ...

There is nothing like "the default ppi for Windows is 96". Your monitor has pixels, and inches, therefore it has many pixels per inches. Digital stuff just uses dimensions (x, y). A 1920x1080px digital image may be represented at different physical sizes depending on the screen size (TV, smartphone, etc). The dpi in digital images is just a ...

Whether you use a Windows PC or Mac makes no difference to InDesign (or Illustrator for that matter). The software works the same on both platforms. The OS is irrelevant. InDesign is page layout software (mostly used for print), unlike software such as web browsers or image viewing software. In InDesign images have a physical print size, measured in inches/...

InDesign cannot make changes to placed assets. When you place something, it is what it is, and if you scale it, it gets scaled completely, like a picture.

There is no way to have InDesign embed images by default as you place them. You can, however, select all of the linked images in the 'links' palette and then use the links palette menu to embed them all with one click, which is almost as easy. Generally speaking, it is not recommended best practise to embed all of your images. It makes for a large InDesign ...

The short answer is here in this video thanks to Neil Malek: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUrtYQGNyQE&ab_channel=NeilMalek The video adds a script for an action On Focus: if(event.target.value==event.target.defaultValue) event.target.value=""; And also you can add two other actions for when your field is Left empty to get filled with ...

First, if you need to rule out pixelation, circles linked as PNG in AI is the incorrect approach. You should use proper vector shapes, you have a few circles, it takes a couple of clicks to put some circles on the page. Everything in that calendar should be vector shapes, not PNGs. That's the proper way to do it, which will result in zero pixelation. Second, ...

A workaround would be to use the placeholder text as default, and then add a little bit of logic to make it disappear when the field has the focus, and reappear when it loses it, and the value has not changed.

Finally, it seems I found a solution. It was originally posted by Barb Binder on Adobe forums. Given that there are two levels of headings, the paragraph style used for table captions should be adjusted as follows: And here is how my heading styles are adjusted, just in case. Level-1 heading: Level-2 heading: Result: update If you have both figures and ...

InDesign does not have this exact functionality. An InDesign document starts with a clean page. You can add any content you want. A page might have just one text frame with text flowing from page to page (like a Word document), it might have 100s of text frames in a large diagram or it might have no text frames and only graphics and images. To make a system ...

You can .. use a separate text box for the chapter name. This way the width of the page numbering and the width of the chapter names will always be fixed, because of the separate text boxes. the thing you are actually looking for, but a bit difficult to explain, and you probably need to experiment a bit and see what works with your specific setup, is by ...

You are right to be worried about this issue. Placing images that have already been converted to a specific CMYK profile in InDesign and then exporting to another profile is a common source of shifting colors. Or similarly, designing vector graphics in CMYK with the wrong profile and then changing the profile on export. Background A CMYK image is basically ...

For any object on a Master page (or 'Parent' page as recent versions of InDesign have started calling them), you can unlock it on any regular page by Ctrl / Cmd + Shift + clicking it.

I found a thread on Reddit where someone had the same problem. The solution: Save As. Worked for me.

Continue Numbering is actually part of the Paragraph Style. When you apply Continue Numbering, notice that a + is added after the name of the Paragraph Style. It is seen as an Override. So you could just hit the Create new style button in the bottom of the Paragraph Styles panel to create a new style based on the numbering style, which will continue ...

A guess. I have run MathMagic, but not the InD plugin version, only the trial of lower cost MathMagic Personal. I guess it gives some information of the functionality of MathMagic's core. I have a formula PDF which resembles your equations and tried to see in Acrobat what the PDF contains. The formula is an EPS image and its color is plain process k. A ...

If you have a printer capable of printing on both sides, check the printer settings and how that works. Otherwise, go basic: print page 1, then, put the paper back into the printer, white side facing up, and print page 2.

There seems to be a discrepancy between the suggested keyboard shortcut in the "Objects" dropdown menu and the actual keyboard shortcut. It is not cmd+alt-L, but actually cmd+alt+shift-L. The shift key makes a world of difference.

You could use this GREP expression to select the first phrase: .+(?= \|) Let's have a look at the individual parts of the expression. .+ This searches for Any Character . repeated One or More Times +. (?= \|) This is a Positive Lookahead which searches for text that comes before a space followed by a vertical bar \|. We need to unescape the | with a \ ...

Most likey your source of your posblem is one of: Your converting your color to CMYK with the SWOP v2 profile, this profile is for offset printers yet you are printing with a inkjet. Not a good combination. Snce your printer does not have a postscript processor its likely a bit limited in capabilities so send in RGB. Your conversion intent is relative ...

So, I guess Indesign is the issue with RGB color with your images, so can you turn off indesigns control of color management with images. So in Color Settings, can you tell indesign to perserve Embedded Profiles or Turn Off and test with your printer?
