Come on in! Let us show you around. We’ll be your tour guides to
the world of InDesign. We’re here to tell you what’s what, what’s
where, and how it fits together. This chapter is all about InDesign’s
user interface—the myriad windows, panels, menus, and other gadgets
InDesign displays on your screen. It tells you what they all are,
and what we call them. This is important, because not everything in
InDesign is clearly labeled—as you read through the techniques in
this book, you need to know that we mean this button over here, and
not that button over there.
This chapter also contains lots of tips and tricks for working with
InDesign’s user interface. These are the “little things” that make
all the difference between enjoying and hating the time you spend
working with InDesign (or any other program, for that matter). The
point is to get you up to speed with all of these new tools so that you
can get on with your work.
If you have used earlier versions of InDesign, you’re no doubt
wondering: does Adobe have to change the user interface with each
new version? We don’t know. Probably.
Ready? Let’s start the tour.
