Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

InDesign CS4 is more than just a page layout tool; as part of Adobe's new Creative Suite 4, it's a key component of an overall design workflow that lets users work seamlessly among all of their graphics applications to create spectacular layouts. Work faster, create more is what Adobe wants users to do with InDesign, and this info-packed guide lets users get right down to doing just that by focusing on the InDesign CS4 features they're most likely to use and showcasing each in a stand-alone tip--complete with a relevant hint or two and a graphic example. In this fashion, readers learn as they go, exploring the program in a way that makes sense to them. Before they know it, users will be using the Bridge to manage their files, object styles to format their images, and snippets to save layout parts for reuse.

Features new to InDesign CS4 that are covered include: live preflight, customizable Links panel, conditional text, cross references, interactive document capability with the new SWF file, animated page transitions, export to Flash CS4 functionality, Smart Guides and Smart Spacing, spread rotation, and smart text reflow.

Book News Annotation:

A sampling of topics includes navigating documents, setting tabs, wrapping text around objects, drawing complex lines, managing graphic links, and filling objects with color. Though there are several ways to perform most tasks, the authors present only the easiest and most obvious for each. Keyboard shortcuts are not covered.
