For issue 65 of InDesign Magazine (September 2014), I wrote an article on a topic near and dear to my heart: long documents. I’ve been building books for almost 20 years, and I’ve tried to distill a lot of what I’ve learned in that time into “Ten Essential Techniques for Working With Long Documents.” It contains what are (in my opinion) the most important tips, techniques, and third-party add-ons to make for a successful long document workflow with InDesign.
There’s plenty of other great stuff in the issue too—98 pages of it! Russell Viers checks in with his advice on working with super-long documents—and he’s done some over 20,000 pages long! Jamie McKee reviews Em Software’s WordsFlow, which lets you fully round-trip content between InDesign and Word. Plus there’s great stuff on indexing, book covers, and more. Check it out!
