Then I found out that PageMaker 7.0 was the end of the legacy and I felt as if my best friend was moving away to Siberia and was never going to return. Then I met the new girl on the block, InDesign, and all is better now. Although the first couple versions were chaotic and cumbersome at the least, "CS" has cleaned up and definitely taken a growth spurt for the better. Although it is still in it's puberty stages and is awkward to maneuver at times, it is by far one of the best programs I have worked with.
As I sat down and started my first layout project with InDesign CS, an 84 page booklet, I felt much like I did that first few days home with a new baby. You should know how to do this but know matter how many you have, they are each so different in their own ways that it takes awhile to get used to their little idiosyncrasies. Although there is endless "how-to" books out there on the market, I knew what I needed ... A Bible!
The Bible was able to walk me through everything from setting up my paragraph and character styles, saving my own unique workstations, hyperlinks, anchor points and bookmarks, and getting it easily saved to pdf format. My job requires me to utilize a program such as InDesign in a huge variety of ways, sometimes for simple layouts, like brochures, posters, etc.. and sometimes for more complex layouts that will be going to a professional printing shop or possibly need to be created to be viewed by either print or pdf format. This is one area that Page Maker fell very short in and InDesign ROCKS!
The Bible does a fantastic job of covering each of these unique needs and requirements of the user in a easy-to-understand format and encompassing all possible problems, where you were previously a PageMaker user or a Quark user. I really appreciated the tips and notes on the side and how to transition yourself painlessly from one application into the next generation, InDesign.
In just the short month that I have had a copy of the InDesign CS Bible I have filled it with post-it notes, highlighter ink, and just a few coffee stains. My advice would be if you are about to sit down and do ANYTHING with InDesign, whether you're doing your first layout in your life or you're a seasoned pro, go buy this book because you will use it as regular as the Pope uses his Holy Bible!
