    InDesign Advanced Training Course

    On this InDesign Advanced Training Course we cover the more in-depth features such as long document handing and collaborating with others. As with all the courses the content is fluid and you are welcome to add and remove elements as you wish.


    The InDesign course can be delivered on your premise or as a Virtual Online InDesign Course. Because of the flexibility of In-house & Online Adobe Training these courses are ideal as one to one sessions or for larger company groups looking for greater flexibility with both timings and dates.

    • Book Panel, Book Properties
    • Pen Tool and Path Handling
