This is about all the new features introduced in the January 2014 update patch. This update has a load of new features to get to know.
Adobe InDesign CC has more preferences and interface settings than ever. It turns out that these preferences are scattered well beyond Edit > Preferences. So, if you want a complete tour of preferences...
Accessibility of publications is an important consideration due to legislation requiring that all information posted online should be available to all readers, including those with visual and motor skills impairments.
Need to be a quick producer, but don't like a lot of drop-down menu clicking? Do you find memorizing keyboard shortcuts difficult? You might like these three new productivity panels for InDesign CC and CS6: OpenTools, PageZoom, and TypeSetter.
The InDesign CC preflight panel that debuted in CS4 is great. It seeks to proactively prevent prepress errors before deadline time. But it could be made even better, just by waking up more of its built-in features.
Trying to study and master your Adobe CC, CS6, CS5.5, CS5, and CS4 softwares? Looking for easy-to-use, printed keyboard shortcuts? We have them here...
GREP searches in InDesign CC and earlier is a strange new world for me. The ability to search for text patterns immediately suggests new and powerful possibilities. Here are some things I have learned.
After being told all about it by Peter Kahrel, I thought you might enjoy an update on the GREP capabilities since InDesign CS4. It turns out there are more and newer GREP code tricks supported in InDesign CS4 within its Find/Change dialog box.
