A good tutorial never dies. You’ve helped me understand a lot! I deal with designers at work and they are always looking at me like I have three heads when I don’t understand their design issues I bring to them from my clients.
Now..I might be able to teach them a thing or two. Maybe even start designing on my own. 🙂

Thanida R. says:

Lillian Zelinski says:

Did I tell you already how great these tutorials are! I’m watching them again and the husband is now watching them also. Takes the both of us to remember all the great information you provide. You gave us both the confidence to publish the journals of all our travels!

I am setting up a brochure on a tabloid paper size (11 inch x 17 inch). There will be one fold to create 4 pages that are in landscape orientation. How do you set up so that the pages are on top of each other rather then side by side? Also I need to flip the back page 180 degrees since there will be a fold.

Nick Baker says:

how the heck did you get the page numbers to appear at 5:55 ? “number the pages like so” Some kind of shortcut? could you please make that explicit ?
