When it comes to using InDesign efficiently, training is just part of the equation. Planning ahead, and using template files can save you time and resources down the road. Well-developed template files offer one of the best ways to both take advantage of automation in InDesign and at the same time create a digital-ready file.
InDesign offers many features that help automate some of the more tedious tasks of preparing your publications, whether for print or digital. Many of these features can be captured in a template file. Template files can contain elements such as text styles, object styles, master pages, color swatches and even Find/Change queries. Files are developed after analyzation of your workflow and go through a vigorous QA and onsite testing process.
