Let's say you are working on a poster in InDesign and you have something that looks like this:
You want the text on the right to align neatly. There are lots of ways to accomplish this, but the easiest is the "Indent to Here" character. You find it under Type > Insert Special Character > Other > Indent to Here. (If you prefer keyboard shortcuts like I do, it's Command - \.) This awesome invisible marker wraps everything underneath it back to that character.
It's handy when there is only one or two lines to do. With lots of lines or complex lists, there are, of course, better ways to handle the indent. I find that I tend to use it most often on posters, fliers or invitations.
This is the fourth tip is what will be an ongoing series of Wednesday Quick Tips on Adobe products. I've set up a page in the main navigation to summarize all of them. Hope you find them helpful.
