Course Description

In the Adobe InDesign IV course we will examine ways to speed up productivity in your workflow by taking advantage of the many advanced features throughout InDesign CC/CS6. Presets and GREP (Generalized Regular Expression Parsing) is a way to find and change recurring patterns in text that literal word searches cannot accomplish.The entire Creative Suite, and especially InDesign CC/CS6, is scriptable.
We will test many JavaScripts that save time by turning tedious and time-consuming activities into scriptable events. Also in this class we will complete a Data Merge project for joining graphic design with data from an external file.
