    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.

    For arguments sake if you have a page selected then Page Properties will go live giving you the options to change Page Sizes, Margins, Adjust Layout and change Grids and Guides. Properties is a main panel which is broken down into various sections as can be seen in the following example.


    InDesign Quick Tip!


    Down towards the bottom of the panel is the ‘Import File’ button which gives you a Quick Action to bring in linked files. Personally still think Cont + D Cmd + D is the best way to do this but InDesign has always been full of many doorbells leading to the same destination.


    The Page Properties panel also provides a Quick Action section which provides a button to Import Files – this is the same as File > Place.

    It also contains the new and wonderful Adjust Layout button which is brilliant if you need to change page layout dimensions, margins and so forth quickly and easily.

    The Properties Panel is a panel that just keeps giving . Each section comes with three small dots. Ignore these at your peril because they lead you under the bonnet to more features.


    If you would like to find out about the new features in InDesign CC 2019 or want to take an InDesign Course why not get in touch for an informal chat.
