Adobe InDesign Advanced Tutorial by Bring Your Own Laptop, get your free downloadable exercise files and printable PDF above.

You’ll learn advanced font tricks using Typekit & Opentype fonts, font grouping & font pairing. Mastering colour features like the colour theme tool and colour modes as well as professional proofing for colours for print. We’ll set permanent defaults for fonts, colours & will learn how to turn hyphenation off for good, once and for all.

What would an advanced InDesign course be without all the tactics to fully control paragraphs, auto expanding boxes, spanning & splitting columns. You’ll become a Styles master, using nested styles, grep styles, next styles & advanced object styles.

We’ll make beautiful charts & graphs for your InDesign documents. You’ll learn the pros & cons of various digital distribution methods including Interactive PDF’s, EPUBs & the amazing Publish Online.

You’ll become a master of long, text heavy documents, autoflowing, primary text frames & smart text reflow, cross referencing, indexes, text variables & the InDesign book feature. There is entire section dedicated to how to speed up your personal workflow & how to speed up InDesign and get it running super fast.

We look at interactive forms & scripts. There is just so much we cover and I want to share everything here in the intro but I can’t. Have a look through the video list, there is an amazing amount we cover here in the course.

If you’re one of those people using InDesign and you know there is probably a better way, a faster way to work then this is your course.

I am an old-school typesetter (Quark express the InDesign for over 25 years) and would argue that points is still the way to go. If you use inches or millimeters, the paragraph leading and spacing will always have fractional numbers. I hate fractional numbers. The point system is much more efficient when creating precise, detailed grids. Very informative and fun video that taught an old dog some new tricks.
Cheers, Erich Collar

This is, quite simply, the best ID tutorial I have seen. I would recommend anyone who uses ID, regardless of their experience level, to watch it in full. There are tips in here that will be invaluable. Don’t let the length put you off. Watch it in stages if you must, but be sure to watch it.

Lyn Lin says:

Joseph Schmidt says:

Finally an InDesign video that doesn’t spend eight hours on absolute basics, but yet clearly explains intermediate and advanced strategies without skipping steps or assuming niche knowledge.

Liked the video very soon. Multiple times while watching attempted to do so again. Never wanted to multiple-Like? a vid more than this one.

Great stuff! Still on it, but will check out the extended course.

Nishant Kursange says:

Thank you for this amazing tutorial. I have been using InDesign for the last couple of years. Although I use it heavily, I don’t really delve into the depths of this amazing software since I use it for work and there are set workflows I have to follow. But this video has some amazing insights and shortcuts that can take my work to the next level. Thank you once again for making such a well structured and well-executed video. Peace!

Garry Mathers says:

instead of going back and forward to color object in native app – you can use inner glow (fx – adjust size / choke to suit) to save time and keep to current iD swatches.
