Complete Reference Guides and Online Manuals for All Adobe Tools. Even years after it went up, a lot of people still don’t know about it. We’re talking about the free online documentation for all Adobe software – a set of user manuals that can answer quite a few customer questions, and also be a great resource if you don’t own a product yet but want to find out more about it… This exists in searchable and downloadable form for all major Adobe applications, including the Creative Cloud, Creative Suite, Lightroom, Acrobat, Photoshop Elements, etc. – for all recent releases on both Windows and Mac OS.

For example, around once a month we receive a question on how to save back to earlier versions from InDesign CC or CS6… Fortunately, this is answered in the “Saving Documents” section in InDesign’s online manual. (And for all the cases like these, we also put together a special roadmap for CC file compatibility.) Related: Trying to decide which is right for you?

Adobe’s Creativity Conference smashed all records with 7,000 attendees coming together in Los Angeles earlier this month, up from 5,000 just a couple years ago… And that was despite an increase in the cost of a full conference pass to US$1,595.

For the price of that ticket, participants enjoyed major new product launches, inspirational key­notes from creative luminaries, hundreds of enriching training sessions, plentiful opportunities for networking with colleagues, access to the latest cool technology on the pavilion floor, meeting the Adobe product teams in person, the highly-anticipated “Sneak Peek” demos of jaw-dropping new features under development, and of course the famous MAX Bash party. And this year, all attendees also received a free year of Adobe Stock as well as a new FUJIFILM X-T10 camera. Special: Legally download dozens of free Adobe books for a limited time!

By: David Blatner | September 7, 2007 Tom wrote: I have been trying to find a way to do an alphabetical sort to produce a glossary of definitions. The project is a manual that has many procedures. We would like to place definitions from all of the procedures and place them in their own section. While InDesign doesn’t have a sort feature built-in, it does come with a script called SortParagraphs.jsx. But I think what you want goes even further than this.

You can tag words or phrases throughout your document with the Index palette by selecting the word and (when the Index palette is open… choose Window > Type & Tables > Index) and then pressing the New Index Entry button (or pressing Command/Ctrl-U). Later, after tagging all the words you want, press the Generate Index button in the palette and it creates one for you — alphabetized for your pleasure! However, once you’ve made your list of terms, you’ll want to add the glossary definitions, right? InDesign Help | InDesign getting started tutorials. Design Center - CS3 Adobe Video Workshop.

Leading is measured from the baseline of one line of text to the baseline of the line above it. Baseline is the invisible line on which most letters—that is, those without descenders—sit.

Leading Text height Larger text size of one word increases leading for that one line.

Creative Cow contributor and Premiumbeat blogger Andrew Devis recently completed a 9 video tutorial series on creating and authoring DVDs in Adobe Encore. Although video pros are dealing less and less with DVDs, for many clients and consumers it’s still the medium of choice. Knowing how to create and deliver quality (and often complex) DVDs is still essential for post production professionals. In addition to standard DVDs, Encore provides the tools necessary to author Blu-Rays.

In this 9 part video series for Creative Cow, Andrew walks you through all stages of Adobe Encore DVD creation, from importing video sequences to creating complex menus and buttons. 3 videos are dedicated to creating Slideshows using Encore – a robust use of that application. Naturally, the more complex the DVD project the more room there is for error. Check out the first few Adobe Encore tutorial videos below (the full series is on Creative Cow).
