Sample text

Basic InDesign Vocabulary Not too long ago, only a few publishing professionals knew — or cared about — what the words pica, kerning, crop, and color model meant. Today, these words are becoming commonplace because almost everyone who wants to produce a nice-looking report, a simple newsletter, or a magazine encounters these terms in the menus and manuals of their layout programs. Occasionally, the terms are used incorrectly or are replaced with general terms to make nonprofessional users feel less threatened, but that substitution ends up confusing professional printers, people who work in service bureaus, and Internet service providers.

If you are new to page layout programs and are taking your first steps with InDesign, that’s fine, too. You can get up and going with the program after a very short time. If you’re well-versed in how to use previous versions of InDesign, you already know the basics.
