It's hidden away but it is possible. 1) File > New > Document Enter the number of pages of your PDF in "Number of Pages". Deselect "Facing Pages" if you want individual pages. If you know the dimensions of your PDF, set that as your document width and height now, otherwise you can edit it later using File > Document Setup. 2) Window > Utilities > Scripts ...

InDesign will show a preview image of an ai file which will use less memory. The file will print fine. If you want to see a more accurate image, change the Display Performance (found in the View menu) from Typical to High Quality Display.

Everything in InDesign is inside of boxes except text. You can either move the whole box or just the content inside of that box. In order to move the whole box you just need to use the Selection-Tool (the "black" mouse) and move your image. You used the Direct Selection (the "white" mouse).

Import using CTRL+D (not drag & drop) and tick the "Show Import Options" check box. That will open up some options where you can choose which specific artboard to place. This is indeed useful to keep multiple vector assets into a single AI file, thus reducing the number of linked files.

What you are trying to do is to embed the file to your project, rather than linking it. That can be done by Selecting the file in the Links panel (Window→Links), and choosing Embed Image from the dropdown menu. Note, that embedding the images can (and most likely significantly) increase your artwork size. Read more about embedding and linking on Adobe

You need to check-out the content first to edit the placed ICML. In the layout, select the text or graphics frames to edit and choose Edit > InCopy > Check Out. See Working with managed files If the content is already checked-out it might be that the content was never checked back in again. Find the hidden lock file and delete it. (something ...

This is InDesign CS6. So, it's feasible there's a difference in newer CC versions... inDesign effects applied to placed graphics If the effect, such as drop shadow, is applied in InDesign to a placed graphic, it is possible to adjust the graphic opacity separate from the effect opacity. Merely use the Direct Selection Tool (White arrow) to select the ...

By default, Illustrator loads it in as a raster object link of the Illustrator file, to fix this. I was wrong, thanks @Scott for this great insight: (paraphrased) It loads in the PDF preview which technically − can be referred to as a "raster preview". It links to the vector data in the linked .ai file. It's closer to a symbol in how it's one ...

Use File > Place to import your photo. InD lets you to position, resize, crop, rotate, make transparent, fade gradually, shear, add edge shadow or glow, but not to edit the content. From links panel you can launch Photoshop for editing. Beware: It takes the original under the work. Texts can be constructed in InD over the photos, too.

When working with InDesign, you can import a PSD file saved in Photoshop by using the Place command, found via "Main menu > File > Place" or via the CTRL+D shortcut. You generally cannot edit a PSD file in InDesign, most edits will need to be done in Photoshop, however cropping is possible in InDesign after importing. You can easily re-crop a placed file. ...

The answer is already posted but since you're new at this let me give you an extra hand. What you need to do is use the first arrow (not the second) from the vertical toolbar on the left edge of your screenshot. You can also select this tool by hitting V on your keyboard. The first arrow selects the image container, while the second arrow selects the image ...

Select your object. In the menu bar select Object > Fitting > Fit Frame to Content (Command-Option-C). This will get the frame back to its original position. According to your photo you are using the direct selection tool (white arrow) which selects either just the frame or just the contents, rather than the selection tool (black arrow) which selects the ...

I think what happens is that your Photoshop is configured to always open JPEG files in Camera Raw. Your Camera Raw is apparently configured to change the resolution of images to 240 ppi, so when you hit Open the resolution of your image changes from whatever it was to 240 ppi. The image itself hasn't changed. It's still the exact same pixels, but since the ...

I once encounter the same exact problem. My app icons on the start menu just didn't appear. I tried a couple, there are people who come to different solutions. There is this post in SuperUser forums on this issue that addresses the icon cache refreshing approach. Although, the right solution for me is the scaling approach which mentioned in this answer, ...

As you probably expected, no such feature in Indesign. However, you can simulate the effect by: applying a huge [paper] inner glow. Normal mode, 100%. This will turn your artwork into white applying your drop shadow. Make sure the option 'Object Knocks Out Shadow' is unticked. setting object transparency to multiply. Now let the magic happen: NB: Don'...

To update a linked component, the way I know is to save it in your CC library and import it inside your XD project, and when you need to edit the component you edit the CC library object, and then you save the component, in PS or AI, the component in XD will be updated.

You need to update to Adobe CC, otherwise your older version (is that CS6?) can only open this in single page mode. This is why you are getting one page instead of 7.

To my knowledge, InDesign will not auto-update renamed or moved links. The proper way to handle this is to create a 'Links' folder next to your INDD source file and drop everything in there. Clearly, not the only way, but when working with long-term clients and multiple versions of the same job, its better to remove any doubt and just know by default every ...

InDesign will normally look for links in a folder which should actually be called 'Links'. Rename this folder you have so the new name is 'Links' and make sure the source file is just outside this folder. If this doesn't work then some files are either truly missing or have been renamed (which is something InDesign will not autodetect).

You have narrow pixelated lines which are mangled another time when placed into Photoshop, where the pixels probably do not fit and it's automatically resampled and antialiased. Probably quite disastrous to thin lines. Many persons make the compositions in InDesign or Illustrator and import the needed photos, because their work needs may be very different ...

Recently I have found that, when you save an Illustrator file (.AI) with the Compress option on, even if all you have in there is vector content, that will give you jagged edges. I assume, the content gets rastered or at the least, a pixel proxy is created. And yes, this occurs even at High Quality display settings and exports out into a PDF in that way. ...

When doing complex work with hundreds of links dumped into a single INDD file, thats when InDesign starts slowing down and so the default behaviour is to show this fast low quality preview of linked files. InDesign will work smoothly for a business card, but does indeed slow down for very large documents (also depending on your hardware). To permanently ...

Within InDesign, change your view settings. View menu > Display Performance > High Quality Display.

Unfortunately no, not in Illustrator. Raster images require embedding for many operations involving transformations. It may be best to warp a Smart Object within Photoshop, unless there's a reason you specifically need Illustrator here. Edited to add: If you highlight a layer in Photoshop, and choose Edit > Transform > Warp then look at the control ...

To find spot colors introduced by placed images do the following: Open the Links panel. In the menu in the upper right corner choose Panel Options. Scroll down and find Swatches Used and check the Show Column checkbox. Now you can see in the Linkspanel which images that contains which spot colors. If none of the placed images contain the undeletable ...

The built-in javascript will place one PDF page per Indesign page. However I recently had a need to place a multiple paged PDF into a grid of pre-existing image frames. I want to do this sometimes when I'm putting an existing document into a "presentation" document for review. So I wrote an AppleScript that does this. It has the option to place not just a ...
