InDesign 101: Tips and Q&A for Beginners

Attention All InDesign Beginners! Have you been using InDesign for less than a year? Perhaps you are a recent convert from QuarkXPress, or perhaps you're new to page layout. Come join internationally renowned InDesign expert, author, and trainer David Blatner for this one-hour "Essentials" seminar that will help you get up and running better than ever!

Whether you use a Mac or Windows, regardless if you're using InDesign CS3 or CS4, you'll learn a ton of "use-it-today" techniques in this information-packed e-seminar:

• Essential tips that every InDesign user needs to know.

• The most important preferences you should change before you even start working.

• Top 10 "gotchas" that frustrate new InDesign users (and what to do about them)

• Extra-long live Q&A session lets you ask the questions you have been burning to get answered!

This is an eSeminar!
