Setting a Few Preferences

For our first project, these few suggestions on how to configure InDesign will do, but I have many more than are on these next few pages.

The full discussion about customizing InDesign can be found in the first chapter of the Compendium, “Workspaces & Preferences.” Or you can save that for later and be content with these few customizations.

When to Set Preferences

To ensure that these preferences are set consistently for all the documents we create during this course, be sure to set them with no documents open at all. Many of the preferences are document-specific, but there’s no way to distinguish them from those that are global (application-wide and applied to all documents).
