Documents and Pages

Design documentation includes information about target users, product features, essential implementation details, design decisions that you have agreed upon, project deadlines, and anything else that the project requires you to keep track of.The five main elements of document design are text/typefaces, visuals, graphics, color, and white space.

  • Creating a new document
  • Managing pages, master pages, and document settings

Working with Text

Text in InDesign resides inside containers called text frames. (A text frame is similar to a text box in QuarkXPress and a text block in Adobe PageMaker.) There are two types of text frames: frame grids and plain text frames.Learn how to add text to your InDesign projects. Select the Type tool in the toolbox. With the Type tool selected, drag in the Document window to add a text frame to the document, or click in an existing text frame to add text. Choose Type > Fill With Placeholder Text to fill the frame with placeholder text.

  • Styles, formatting options, and text threading

Images and Graphics

Graphics are an integral part of page design, and InDesign puts you in control of cropping, sizing, borders, and effects, thus controlling the appearance of images in your layout. You can place a wide variety of graphic types into your layouts, including PDF, TIFF, JPEG, and EPS.In InDesign, you can bring raster images, like an image you take with your phone, or vector graphics, like a logo, into your documents

Color and Swatches

Swatch is a super class that embeds color, gradients, mixed inks or a mixed inks group. Color is just a member of that family. To break it down, color swatches are basically a show of different colors, gradients, patterns and tints, which you can use to select a perfect match. The Color Picker lets you choose colors from a color field or specify colors numerically. You can define colors using the HSB, RGB, HSB, Lab, or CMYK color model. Double-click either the Fill or Stroke box in the Toolbox or the Color panel to open the Color Picker.

  1. Master Pages and TemplatesA Master Page is a nonprinting page that you can use as the template for the rest of the pages in your document. Master pages can contain text and graphic elements that will appear on all pages of a publication (i.e. headers, footers, page numbers, etc.)A master is like a background that you can quickly apply to many pages. Objects on a master appear on all pages with that master applied. Master items that appear on document pages are surrounded by a dotted border. Changes you make to a master are automatically applied to associated pages.

    • Utilizing libraries for efficiency

Print Preparation

The easiest answer is that a print ready file is a file that when sent to a print company can be immediately put into the production workflow and contains all of the necessary details so the printing equipment can read and reproduce the design without issue.When you print a file, Adobe InDesign sends it to a printing device—either to be printed directly on paper or to a digital printing press, or to be converted to a positive or negative image on film. In the latter case, the film can then be used to create a parent plate for printing by a commercial press.
