Loved the data merge tutorial, but can you include sample files (especially the xls file) so I can use that as a starting point?

 

Hi 👋 @Lord McSquash my colleague Alan Stonebridge created an article on Spotlight about Data Merge, you might find it useful as it is filled with knowledge and  supporting material.

Hope this helps, thanks for watching the tutorials. :D

I would love to see some more information about handling color in documents. I am still struggling to understand the swatches tab and all the functions in it. I work as a production artist at my press company. There are times I have to take really bad PDF files convert them and make some sort of sense out of them so they can go to press. A lot of the time I have to get the mangled colors straightened out and make them uniform thoughout the document, but I am having a lot of difficulty doing so.

PS: Converting PDFs in this program is wonderful, it does it better than anything else that I have seen. Plus it makes PDFs so much better than any version of InDesign that I have worked with.

That list of videos is exactly what I needed. The playlist on YouTube is not in order.

This video will probably also help folks who are putting together an Amazon KDP book:

IMO, he is not very skillfull:

  1. Defines margins when creating a new document, but totally ignore them when setting master pages elements;
  2. Enters numeric values manually instead with mouse;
  3. Leaving orphans / widows...

Well, he pronounced opacity as "pay-city" and leading as "leeding", so he is obviously not coming from a trained Graphic Design background. But I watched all the material there was for my use-case on YouTube and his definitely helped me get my bearings..
