Being one of the major components of Adobe Creative Cloud means it integrates perfectly with the other apps apps such as Photoshop and Illustrator.

    Onsite Adobe Training Yorkshire

    Onsite Adobe Training Yorkshire

    We’ve not just been delivering onsite Adobe training  in Yorkshire recently. We have had a very busy month travelling around the UK delivering training courses but we have spent a lot of our time in the North.

     

    So we’ve been to Brigg and York both well inside beautiful Yorkshire and then crossed the border into Grimsby in Lincolnshire and zoomed back down to the Midlands to deliver a range of onsite courses including InDesign, Photoshop, Acrobat and Premier Pro.

     

    So what have we been doing with all this travelling? Some interesting and very varied stuff but we thought for this post we’d stick to Brigg in Yorkshire which is a beautiful town. Actually we like Yorkshire so much that this isn’t our first blog post about “God’s own county”.

Her objectives were quite clear she wanted to create and edit slim yet professional looking newsletters in InDesign. Having had a chat prior to the course she selected a few random samples she liked from the Web and we used them as training examples during the course.

    Once the spread has been created for print or elsewhere you can then add elements from the InDesign Interactive Panel to create eBooks, presentations, slideshows and other online media. You can also use InDesign’s Interactive Panel to design and publish online forms to collect data and other information from perspective clients.

    InDesign CC 2019 Properties Panel

    Posted on 5th January 2019 by Greta Powell

    InDesign CC 2019 Properties Panel

    Looking for the Control Bar in InDesign CC 2019? The control bar no longer appears automatically when you install or update Creative Cloud. It now needs to be manually turned on from the Window menu. Why? Because Adobe have introduced the the new InDesign CC 2019 Properties Panel and this opens on the InDesign load. Just like the Control Bar the Properties Panel is also context sensitive and changes according to what is currently selected.
