Agenda – InDesign Secrets!
Megan Fister, your CPAUG Manager, will show you the secrets of InDesign to help improve your speed and efficiency using Adobe InDesign CS4+ in your day-to-day projects.   Please note the new meeting location and time above!

A few of the secrets you’ll learn:

  • The hidden “auto-expand text” feature
  • Letting InDesign do the math for you
  • Magically building graphs with the Chartwell font.  [Edit: I’m no longer going to present this tidbit because Chartwell is a rather pricey, though awesome font.  I’ll show something else it it’s place – TBD.  If you’d like more info on Chartwell, you can check out the website http://tktype.com/chartwell.php]
  • Using the Eyedropper tool to pick up character or paragraph attributes
Pretzels!
Free pretzels & sodas provided at this meeting! Yay!
