InDesign Typography: Finessing Beyond the Defaults

Tuesday, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

InDesign’s default settings will only take you so far. They might help you avoid bad typography, but for good typography, you’ll need to go beyond the defaults to understand and take charge of InDesign’s wealth of typographic settings. If you’re ready to take your typography to the next level and set your work aside from the work of your competitors, this session is for you. You’ll learn how to adjust Hyphenation and Justification settings for optimum type color, how to use a light touch to fix common problems like short last lines (runts) and widows and orphans., and how to get the most out of OpenType features.
