NOTES – Desktop Publishing September 11 - This week will mostly be an introduction and familiarity of InDesign, details will be explained through the next few weeks. Teamsite CMS (Interwoven) - Another content management system, used in HP - Is used for enterprises that are evolving and that are sometimes complex content approval processes XML vs InDesign - Can be brought into InDesign Adobe Stock - Stock art service - Fotolia Adobe InDesign: ● Running head: is a heading printed at the top of each page of a book or a chapter. ● Folio: is an individual leaf of paper or parchment, numbered on the recto or front side only occurring either loose as one of a series or forming part of a bound volume. How-To-Create a Master Template for a Manuscript: 1. Open Adobe InDesign, create a new “Document” 2. Change the measurements to 36p0 x 54p0 (measured in pica, equivalent to 6 in x 9 in) Check the box “Primary Text Frame” and click ok 3. On the upper right hand corner is dropbar that says “Essentials”; Change to “Typography” 4. On the Toolsbar (right hand side) is a Pages tab; click on “A-Master” 5. Once on the Master template, there is a left hand toolbar. Click on the “T”; this allows you to create a text box. Create the box upper half of the pink grid frame on the left hand page. 6. Based on the aesthetic of the book, select a font and placement of the Author’s name. Once placed in the appropriate place, highlight the Author’s name. Click on the “Paragraph Styles” tab on the right. Once tab is open, click on the upper right hand side of tab, click “New Paragraph Style”, and name it “Runninghead”. Check box “Apply Style to Selection”, and press ok. 7. To create a runninghead on the right hand side. Create another text box same size, same shape, and align with the box on the left. 8. Change the name and align the text wherever you want. and continue the same “paragraph style” process. Name “RunningheadRight”, make sure to change Based On: No Paragraph Style to Based On: Runninghead, check “Apply Style to Selection”, and ok. 9. To create a Folio, create another text box. To create page numbers, click on “Type” on the toolsbar at the top, scroll down and click “insert special characters”, then “markers”, and select “current page numbers”. 10. DO NOT FREAK OUT! You are supposed to see an “A”. 11. And continue the “Paragraph Style” Process for both pages. SEPTEMBER 25: Master Pages: - Main building block for the rest of the book - Are spread sheets that is a template for every page through the file without making it twice. Tabs: - This is not the best way to align and layout a spread. - It is a useful tool, but more than one tab becomes wonky and not easy to use. Guides: - These turquoise/blue lines dragged down from the ruler are called guides. - Great tools to align an image or cover lines. - Let’s say you want an ⅛” of space as a guide, just drag a guide until you are reaching ‘1p6’ Safety is the space from the edge of the text to the page number. Bleed is the space from the edge of the page moving out. - The grey outside of the page area. - You can store comments, images, etc… - If you have an image that bleeds off the edge, you have to make sure that there is enough image to fill the page before it gets cut off. - Always 1/4 “ bleed Margins: - Before making a decision in changing the margin of the text box, you can easily create a text box for reference on how the design will work in the layout. SHORTCUTS: W: - This will allow you to preview the page without all of the guides and textboxes. V: - Mouse tool A: - Alternate mouse tool M: - Rectangle tool T: - Text tool Finding ‘1p6’” - Go to the Rectangle Frame Tool and create a box. Go up to ‘width’ = w on the toolbar at the top to change the measurements. Chapter Openers: - Depending on the design, key things to think about: - Chapter Typeface - Numbers - Negative Space - Columns - Typeface - Characters - Images New operating system in Amazon: KF10 (Spacing between paragraphs) New Chapter Opener: - Chapter openers sets the scene for the chapter. (With no running heads) - By creating a “NEW” MASTER page, you create a new building block for chapter openers without recreating a new page design layout. - To create a “NEW” Master Page: - Go up to the top corner pages tab, and click “NEW MASTER” - Change the settings to based on: A-Master - And rename to Chapter Opener - Now, the new master page will be the exact copy of the master page. To alter the new master pages, press command + shift + click (your mouse button) October 2: Grids: - Breaks space or time into regular units. - Can be simple or complex, specific or generic, tightly defined or loosely interpreted. - Types or grids: - Grids as Frame - Dividing space - Grid as Program - Grid as Table - Grid as Navigation - Single-column grid - Multi Column Grid Type classification: - Humanist: humanist letterforms are closely connected to calligraphy and the movement of the hand. - Transitional and Modern: typefaces that are more abstract and less organic. Basic terms in type: - Height - Width: horizontal measure. - Scale: is the size of design elements in comparison to other elements in a layout as well as to the physical context of the work. - Cap Height: the distance from the baseline to the top of the capital letter determines the letter’s point. - X-Height: is the height of the main body of the lowercase letter. - Baseline: Is where all the letters sit. - Stem - Bowl - Serif - Descender: The length of the letter’s descenders contributes to its overall style and attitude. - Ligature - Ascender: some elements may extend slightly above the cap height. - Finial - Terminal - Spine - Uppercase - Small capital - Leading - Kerning - Cross Bar - Counter - Lowercase - Overhang: The curves at the bottom of letters hang slightly below the baseline. Style Groups: - As a form of organization, you can go in you “paragraph style” groups Typesetting systems: - Linotype - Monotype - Ribbon - Phototype setting PRINT PRODUCTION: Chapter 5: VECTOR GRAPHICS VECTOR FILE FORMATS: 1. Encapsulated PostScript (EPS): a. The most common file format for containing vector artwork b. The acronym EPS is associated with vector graphics that new entrants to the mysteries of graphic arts sometimes believe that merely saving an image in the EPS format magically converts it to vectors. c. EPS is a container for PostScript information that allows it to be understood by other applications. 2. Native File Formats: a. InDesign honors transparency and blending modes in a native illustrator file. . Meaning a placed illustrator file can interact with other artwork in InDesign, allowing you to create some interesting opacity and blending effects that would not be possible with an EPS. 3. Adobe PDF: a. If a vector art is not destined for placement in a page layout, but will be submitted as finished art, saving it as a PDF allows you to protect you artwork from unwanted editing. VECTOR FORMATS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR PRINT: 1. Microsoft Windows Metafile Format (WMF) 2. Enhanced Metafile Format (EMF) 3. Rastor Formats Chapter 11: INDESIGN CS4 PRODUCTION TIPS GRAPHICS: 1. Placing Graphics: 2. Drag and Drop a. Good b. Bad 3. Embedding and Un-embedding Graphics 4. Updating Missing or Modified Graphics a. Finding Missing Graphics b. Updating Modified Graphics c. Replacing Current Graphics 5. Editing Graphics 6. Transforming Graphics SWATCHES vs COLOR: - Think of the color panel as an informal mixing bowl for creating a color you’ll apply only to a selected object - Colors created in the color panel are not automatically stored in the Swatches panel – they evaporate. - The swatches panel ensures that you have global control. Change the recipe for a swatch, and you change every object filled or stroked with the swatch. PDF: 1. Creation Methods: a. Export to PDF b. Print to Adobe PDF c. Acrobat Distiller d. Save as PDF 2. Creation Setting: a. Smallest File Size b. High Quality Print c. Press Quality d. PDF/X-1a:2001 e. PDF/X-3:2002 f. PDF/X-4:2008 October 9: InDesign: - Layers: - By creating layers, you segregate different forms of “art” or “word” treatment to create a much more manageable. PPI: Pixels Per Inch October 16: Creating a cover: InDesign: 1. Create a new document: a. uncheck facing pages b. change the margin to 0p9 c. change the bleed to 1p6 2. Create new layers: a. Art b.

Place the image of the cover c. Layers i. Art ii. Box iii. Text 2. Create different Artboards: a. select the artboard icon b. and like a layer, create 2 new artboards October 23: Issues with sending the assignments: - Please, place the images being used in with the Illustrator/InDesign file Back into the InDesign Cover Document: 1. Create a new page within the document 2. Go to File - Place a. Choose your Illustrator file b. Make sure to check show import options before pressing ok c. Under layers, make sure the only layer that is being viewed is the TEXT layer d. And place the image (text) i. If your text is fuzzy, you can go to your preferences and go down to Display preferences, and change only vector graphics to High Resolution October 30: Blatner’s rules of design and production: 1. Know your hub 2. Take time now to save more time later 3. Keep your options open as long as you can Guest lecture Janet Kusmierski: Designing the Book from soup to nuts 1. Read the manuscript a.
