Adobe, the Adobe logo, Acrobat, Adobe Reader, the Adobe PDF logo, Classroom to complete the exercises in this book, as well as other content to help you learn more about Adobe InDesign CS6 and use it with greater efficiency and ease. Adobe InDesign CC is a page-layout software that takes print publishing and page design beyond NOTE: This tutorial is fairly comprehensive in that it discusses the most common aspects of.

Adobe helpfully lets you pin the object by either clicking the pins attached to the object, or by clicking checkboxes in the new Liquid Layout panel. When working with complicated layouts, the checkboxes can be easier to click than the pins. Note the solid brown circles extending from the object to the page edges.
By either clicking on the circles or dashed lines, or using the checkboxes in the Liquid Layout panel, you can control how or if it resizes, and whether it moves in relation to the page edges. Other Liquid Layout techniques include: Special guides to control the positioning of entire columns or rows of frames in long, rigidly structured documents and the Controlled by Master function in which pages are adjusted according to the Liquid Layout rule assigned to their Master page.
In my testing of all of the Liquid Layout rules, none of them gave me anything close to a perfect result. Thankfully, InDesign can show you a live preview of how your objects will change. Just use the improved Page tool to drag the corner of your page to its new size and watch as objects move and resize.
Content tools for ePubs Most of the high-profile improvements to InDesign are aimed at repurposing content. The clever new Content Collector, Content Conveyor, and Content Placer tools work together to help you collect items for repurposing, multiple re-use, and efficient placement.
The Content Conveyor lets you collect objects from a page, and then place them into other pages or layouts.
You can choose to link to the original objects and map original text styles to new ones. These features reflect the increased popularity of creation for tablets like the iPad, Kindle, and Nook ebook readers. Adobe has improved the output quality for ePub-based readers and streamlined features for creating ePub-ready documents.
Because Flash is clearly on its way out for these kinds of projects, Adobe encourages you to use Adobe Edge beta to create animations in HTML 5 format for your website. When you open the Folio Builder panel for the first time, it instructs you to use the Help menu to download the latest updates. Specific ePub enhancements Adobe has enhanced its ePub support in various ways, not the least of which is that the output is far more likely to pass ePub validators, and thus more likely appear as you intended in an ePub reader.
On the positive side, InDesign now exports. Creating an ePub file is far easier in CS6 than it was before. When you export to ePub, you can use this feature to break pages based on paragraph style sheets such as Section Head. This is so much easier than it was in CS5. The ePub Export Options dialog box has a smart redesign, with new support for custom bullets and numbers, and tables.
Other ePub-authoring improvements include allowing an inline frame to maintain its background color, frame width, and inset, and graphics anchored in the text flow can now be exported with their text wrap.
When exporting to ePub 3, the file includes ePub 2 files as well, for backward compatibility. Oddly, with ePub 3 barely on the brink of acceptance, Adobe has chosen to include its own, proprietary ePub 3 option: ePub 3 with Layout.
This format supports multiple columns, text wrap, and adapting layouts across different mobile devices. In InDesign CS6, you can now create most common PDF items, including a text field, radio button, checkbox, combo box popup menu , or signature field, as well as buttons for printing, submitting a form by email, and clearing the form.
InDesign includes several pre-built fully functional buttons with rollover options, or you can convert your own objects into buttons. InDesign CS6 includes a collection of pre-built, interactive PDF form buttons, checkboxes, radio buttons, and fields that you can drag and drop onto your page.
You can even include tooltips, set the tab order for form fields, and show and hide form fields based on triggers such as responses to other questions on the form.
Adobe also added the ability to export your PDF from InDesign as a grayscale PDF file, which reduces file size and complexity when printing with only black ink. You can now also export pages as separate pages, rather than as spreads.
Previously, you had to use Acrobat to rearrange the pages. You can now preview your page as it might appear printed in grayscale or exported to PDF as grayscale.
Text-handling facility With InDesignCS6, font menus now group your most recently used fonts at the top, sorted either alphabetically or by recent use. Vikrant, the InDesign content and community lead, has already fixed a number of the content-specific issues and will repost the PDF shortly. It will take us a bit more time to fix some of the navigation concerns. We made a lot of design changes with this release and will work out all the kinks. We have made the some updates and posted an updated PDF.
We will continue to optimize the content and keep updating the help systems periodically. Feel free to reach me at virai [at] adobe dot com or or via twitter vikrantrai for any concerns that you may have.
Thank you Vikrant! Downloading the new PDF now …. Thanks, Vikrant.
Booksmarks are still only two levels deep. Obviously taking a cue from Microsoft. In the past, the User Guide PDF was clearly of independent ancestry, and was always much more detailed. First, they stopped putting user guides in the box, but at least they included the PDF of the guide on the install disks.
Then they stopped that, and only provided the PDF online. I am a professional graphic artist, using Adobe software for more than 23 years now.
Adobe software is getting worse with each new version. For this kind of money you would expect proffesional software, but all the programs in the suite are unstable, slow and in NOT ONE the help system is working!! Well normal? Adobe allready skipped this in CS4 and maybe earlier. Anyway, in any reliable software even from small companies like Smith Micro or Corel, the help system is superb: In my case I am running the suite under windows 7 on a i7 with 8gb ram , in After Effects clicking help does not do anything at all, no online help, no offline help, no warning, nothing.
In No other program of the master collection I will get offline help or online help, but mostly alert boxes stating that I am not connected to the internet which of coarse i am permanently through glassfiber notably!
The only button in these alert boxes that one can click is an irritating OK button. In these cases it would be normal is ther was also a button: The fact that a simple thing as a helpsystem is totally out of reach for Adobe programmers, gives me the feeling that they are completely incompetent and that probably there is a lot more wrong under the hood of every Adobe program. It is now januari and I have read similar complaints way back in june , so after all this time they are still unable te fix this.
Or are they unwilling? Bob, the issue you seem to have is with ntuser. Problem is removing ntuser.
