    InDesign Advanced Training Course

    On this InDesign Advanced Training we cover the more in-depth features such as long document handing, working with Microsoft Office to bring across files and connect with database /spreadsheet content. As with all the Adobe courses the content is fluid and can be customised to suit you. Advanced InDesign courses are delivered on your premises or we can organise a venue in Leicester if you prefer. Because of the flexibility of in-house Adobe Training these courses are ideal as one to one sessions or for larger company groups.


    InDesign and Microsoft Office Training

    If you are bringing a lot of documents from Microsoft Office (Word, Excel or Access) then you could opt to tailor the InDesign course completely around this. These were some of the features covered on a recent InDesign / Microsoft Office Courses:



    InDesign Advanced Training Content

    The full InDesign Course overview is further but in brief on this training you will learn:


    • Master Pages
    • Table of Contents
    • Advanced Graphics & Text Handling, Alpha Channels, Clipping Paths
    • Book Panel, Book Properties
    • Pen Tool and Path Handling
    • Art Tools
    • Data Merge



    This InDesign Course content takes between one and two days depending on the amount of people sitting on the training – for one person a day usually suffices but for small groups of between 4 and 6 people two days is more realistic.   It is perfect for onsite company courses or individuals.


    Laptop Hire

    Short of a laptop or 6?  If so, then I can supply laptops and projector hire and take care of all aspects of your InDesign training course – again, please don’t hesitate to get in touch for an informal chat about your needs.


    Thank you for passing by.

    Don’t have a good day have a great one
