  1. Great video! I am a newbie to Indesign but I've used photoshop for awhile, so this was perfect to acclimate myself to indesign. Thanks!

  2. Thank you for this. I have a job interview this week and to be honest, my knowledge of InDesign is a bit limited. The graphic design work I've done hasn't required any heavy lifting by InDesign so this is great to help me brush up on concepts so I can actually hold a conversation. #fakeittilyoumakeit

  3. Good tutorial but has some faults..viz.
    The Mouse pointer should have had acolour so as to follow where the icon being discussed is. secondly you could probably use zoom to highlight the area of discussion.

  4. It's like going to a car dealership, sitting in a new car, and going through each button, dial, knob – all the while never starting it up and going for a drive.

  5. So I'm really new to this and your video has me lost. I need to know how to START a document. I guess I had better look for a more remedial video.

  6. Great tutorial! I'm soon going to start studying graphic design and this video really helped me grasp concepts that i didn't understand.

  7. hello there @adobemasters

    I was working with indesign and now "OMG" i have getting these heavy projects like 4000 products or 8000 products for catalogs.
    I'm using | i5@4th generation | 16ddr3 | no graphic card | hdd 5200 rpm |

    i know its a quite out dated pc but untill i know which is best to handle these heavy loads of graphics i don't want to waste my money.

    So , if you can help me that what kind of machine (desktop) i use to mange such a heavy load graphics in indesign. would be really helpfull for anyone who is facing this kind of problem,
    really looking forward to your answer


  8. Hello,
    I am a book designer and have my own company. I have been using Pages as my primary working tool. Pages 9 was a brilliant version for publishing applications and very versatile. However as this version has become redundant and i operate with much larger files now and am hoping to take it to another level, using the Pages 9 (for which i have a dedicated Mac where this is installed and no updates are done is not helping anymore as files are hanging and pages is crashing :(..

    I am having to switch software and InDesign is looking like my pick.

    I watched your video and do appreciate the effort in making the video .. however if you are demonstrating something to a beginner of Indesign / Adobe – ' Bad design on my part' and using an already created master document with inherent flaws does not assist a beginner ! Further demonstrating text additions outside of the sample document is not helpful ! Its like hitch-hiking – starting from in -between a journey and having to piece things together for yourself !
    If i could humbly suggest, starting right from scratch by opening a New document and demonstrating grids and text boxes from the get go would actually be helpful if its a beginners video.
    thanks .. hope this is helpful for upcoming Tutorials.
