You cannot convert PNG images into SVG in any meaningful way. You write: "I have web portfolio with images for the websites I worked on". The only way you'll be able to use SVG images for your web portfolio is if you can export the SVG files from the program you originally used to work on the websites.

As it says later on that same Adobe help doc page... When you install a Middle Eastern or North African version, the default typing font is set to the installation-specific language, by default. For example, if you have installed the English/Arabic-enabled version, the default typing font is set to Adobe Arabic. Similarly, if you have installed the ...

This is not for InDesign, however it is possible to apply the Roughen filter in Illustrator to text to give it a very slightly irregular look. Obviously you can mess around with the size and detail sliders to tweak the effect yourself. Here's an example showing the effect being switched on and off.

There is an InDesign script called Humane Type that does something like that and allows you to tweak the parameters with a UI. If you need something even more specific, this would require writing your own script.

When you choose Wrap around object shape the Top Offset works as a uniform offset all around the object. It wouldn't really make sense to be able to set the offset for all four "sides" when the object is complex. A thing you can do is to override the automatic offset and manually manipulate the offset with Direct Selection Tool. Once you have manually ...

The table text was changing after re-importing the Excel file because I had a pre-selected Character Style select in the Character Style Window. To fix this, I opened the InDesign file before I edit the text in Excel. I select nothing and change the Character Style to None. I save and close InDesign. I then edit the info in Excel, close, open the InDesign ...

Possibly helpful: What are the differences between vector graphics and raster graphics? SVG, much like EPS, is merely a file "wrapper". What is inside the wrapper can be a mix of actual formats - vector or raster or both. Simply having an SVG file never means you have a vector file. All the SVG suffix means is the data is in the SVG wrapper, nothing more. ...

I have found @Arthur's script very useful. However, I wanted to use it only only afterSave, but also afterSaveAs (which was easy to extend: just append another event listener command) and afterSaveACopy (which I could not accomplish by myself; I have seeked the help at community.adobe.com). Now I have a working script that works for all three use cases, see ...

Simply highlight the 2 pages in the Pages Panel and drag them until you see a solid, straight line. Not a bracket line with hooks on the ends, a straight line. The Allow Document Pages to Shuffle is somewhat illogical. Whether or not the check mark is next to that item doesn't necessarily mean anything. What matters is... if you are trying to do something ...

Rotate the page content so it's vertical.. or set up a vertical document and then use the page display options to display the pages rotated 90°. Basically, set up a vertical book with the content rotated. That allows you to use the "print booklet" command and get a landscape book.

You probably don't need a script for this. Just running this command in your particular folder using the command prompt ('cmd') in Windows will generate that list for you, alphabetically. dir /on /b >> list.csv It will just be a plain text file in this format: image 1 image 2 image 3 ... image 5000 Then, add this at the top of that text file: ...

Here is a method for a script which will do what you want. The goal is a setup like shown below. You need a Main Text Frame (cyan) which contains the main story. The Main Text (red) is left aligned and used for the punctuation and defining the main leading. Each Interpreted Word (blue) with its corresponding Original Word (green) below is center aligned ...

This is in Illustrator. It uses the most basic functions. Top left: A circle is drawn and Type on Path was inserted. The circle became invisible by default. Top right: A new circle is drawn. It snaps easily to the same center as the 1st one if you have smart guides and snap to point ON. Btm left: The new circle is splitted with the scissors and the extra ...

How images are to be used is really not your concern if you are merely taking photos. It sort of sounds as if you trying to train them in the use of InDesign as well. If hired as a photographer, that's really not your concern. If you can't shoot larger images, then tell them that, don't make excuses. Not everyone has a 10+MP camera. It's not unheard of to ...

Yes, definitely. The settings for this are in the very window shown in your image and you are looking at those. 'Include Paragraph Styles' section is a list of styles from your chapters that should be pulled into the TOC. Then, the styles referred to below are the actual styles you need to use in the formatting of the TOC, which of course can be different ...

Okay, I figured out how to add custom paper sizes to the Microsoft PDF printer (and just wrote about that over here), but I'm pretty annoyed InDesign can't do this. It seems like a pretty trivial missing feature. Anyhow, for the custom paper sizes to create a PDF, if anyone's interested: Open Control Panel (easiest way is to search for it from Start). Open ...

My thought would be to create multiple PDFs and then combine them Export PDF of pages before duplication Export PDF of only the pages to duplicate Export PDF of pages after duplication In Acrobat choose File > Create > Combine files into to Single PDF... and then order the pages in that dialog appropriately, adding as many copies of a single PDF as ...

The only way I know is to simply enter the wanted page range in the Export Adobe PDF > General > Pages > Range field 52 times. If the range you want for example is "2,15,17,30" you simply repeat those four numbers 52 times with a comma between each copy like this: 2,15,17,30,2,15,17,30,2,15,17,30, and so on. If the range is four adjacent pages like 2,3,4,...

Definitely. You need to set up two separate styles: one style for simple text (not numbered) a copy of that style where you merely select 'Numbers' under 'Bullets and Numbering' section of this second paragraph style. the auto-numbering will work with everything else set by default under this panel further read: https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/...
