Adobe® InDesign® Creative Fundamentals

OnDemand Webinar (88 minutes)

Learn how to get the most out of Adobe® InDesign® and how to use the program efficiently under pressure.

Many InDesign® documents have last-minute design changes beyond the designer's control, or must be repurposed for other types of output (interactive PDF or EPUB). Documents that are not set up correctly take 3-6 times the effort to change, often affecting deadlines. This topic will instruct viewers on how to set up a document to make last-minute and format changes without greatly impacting the deadline. Knowing the best practices is critical not only for workers, but for managers so they know how much time should be allotted for changes and so they can plan accurate schedules for deliverables.
