About the Course

In this training, we'll be taking a two-page newsletter previously created in InDesign and expanding it to a four-page document.

We'll also work with advanced tools and features of InDesign, and learn how to prepare and package a publication for printing.

  • Create automatic “continued on” segments
  • Thread a story with in and out ports

  • Package a publication for sending
  • Export in Portable Document Format (PDF)

Prerequisite Skills

  • Experience with using Adobe tools and panels
