My best InDesign tips from 2015

I restarted my Wednesday Adobe Quick Tip a few months ago, but I figured I’d highlight my favorite tips from the last year to make you a more efficient Creative Cloud user. Although I post tips from other Adobe apps, most of them — including my favorite four below — are for InDesign:

That one weird little InDesign printing trick. I had no idea how easy it was to print a single spread in InDesign.

Hidden alignment. For some reason, the most helpful InDesign alignment options are hidden on the Alignment palette. 

Moving InDesign pages to different documents. The easiest way to combine pages from different documents.

Paragraph shading. A new feature in InDesign CC 2015 makes paragraph shading really easy.

But by far, the most visited page on my site is a tip from 2009 on how to create an Instagram-like vignette effect without leaving InDesign. I’ve updated the post in 2014, but Google really loves the old post.

My plan is continue the weekly Creative Cloud quick tip into 2016. You can see all the tips from the past several years on my Creative Cloud Quick Tip page.
