CS110 Fall 2011 - Extra Credit Applications A Little Help To Get You Started WHERE TO FIND THE SOFTWARE: Some of the following software is available on both the Macs and PCs in the labs. . SOME HINTS TO START WITH: 1. InDesign Adobe InDesign is in the Applications folder on the Macintosh in the labs and also on the PCs (see Start Menu, All Programs, Adobe Creative Suite 3, Adobe InDesign CS3). InDesign is a desktop publishing application. In particular, it is layout software used to create documents that combine text and pictures. For example, it is good for creating newsletters and magazine-like documents. Though you can enter text and draw simple pictures within InDesign, it is not meant to replace word processors and graphical editors (Paint and Draw programs). Instead, it is best used by importing such text and graphics from other files or sources. The key command within InDesign is the Place command which allows you to import the information you are using from elsewhere. Besides being used for importing such information, the Place command is also used to select the exact location within the document where you want the image or text to appear. InDesign also makes it easy to make multiple column presentations, to have a section of text end at some point in one column and automatically continue (flow) into another column - possibly on another page. You can do this by using the handles that appear on the bottom of sections of text (you need to have selected the text using the selection tool arrow). If you shrink a section so some text is obscured, you then can click on the + icon that appears on the lower right section of that text to grab the remaining (obscured text). After that if you click elsewhere (new column on the page, a totally different page), the text will continue where you click, placing the remainder of the text in that new section. These two parts will act as one continuous section of text with parts flowing from one to
