  1. Using Adobe InDesign to Build a Flyer and Booklet Prof. Elio L. Arteaga

  2. About Adobe InDesign • InDesign is Adobe’s software application for creating page layouts. One does not actually create the images or write the text in InDesign (although it’s quite possible). Instead a graphic designer combines text from a word processing application, such as Microsoft Word, and images from a graphics application, such as Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator.

  23. Booklet

  24. New Document • The document will be an 8-page booklet, printed on letter-size paper, then folded in half. • In the Welcome window, click New Document. Set the new document window as shown here:

  25. Adding Color Swatches • Using the same techniques you learned in the previous section, add Pantone colors to the Swatches panel. Pull down the pop-up menu on the right side, and choose New Swatch... Change Color Type to Spot, and pick the Pantone Solid Coated library. Add the following numbers: 1525, 484, 690, 315, 5757, and 5487. • Pantone colors are colors of ink that are run on the press on its own plate. • CMYK colors can print a large number of colors using only four press runs—one each for cyan, magenta, yellow and black ink colors.

  26. Build the Master Pages • Master pages contain items that repeat on all the printable document pages. In this case, we’ll add page numbers. Pull down a guideline and drop it on 8 inches on the vertical ruler. Draw a text box from the guideline down and from the left margin to the right margin.

  27. Choose Type: Insert Special Characters: Markers: Current Page Number. The letter A will appear on the master page, but the correct page number will appear on each page. Type “Using Adobe InDesign,” and set fonts and colors. Page numbers are usually very small and inconspicuous, so set the point size to 9 points.

  28. Add the Text from a File • Choose File (menu): Place... Navigate to your downloaded folder and choose InDesignText.txt. When the loaded text cursor is visible, flow the text on the two inside columns of pages 2 through 8. • After dragging a text box across the width of the two inside columns and the height of the columns, click on the overflow box at the bottom of each textbox and continue flowing text onto the next page.

  29. Add Images • Place images by placing the blinking keyboard cursor at the location where you want to insert the appropriate image, then choosing Object (menu): Anchored Object: Insert... Change Content to Graphic, and Position to Inline or Above Line. Check “Above Line.” • Next, choose File (menu) Place... Navigate into the downloaded folder, and choose the appropriate image as indicated for each location. Be sure Replace Selected Item is checked. • Finally, scale the box to the width of the column, and choose Object (menu): Fit Content Proportionally.

  30. Add the Main Heading and Cover Image • Draw a text box and type “Using Adobe InDesign to Build a Booklet.” Set the font, size and color. Use a Line Break [Shift-Enter] to separate the lines between “InDesign” and “to.” Place the cover image by choosing File (menu): Place..., choosing the cover image in the downloaded folder, then using the loaded graphic icon to place the image in the intended size and position.

  31. Add a Table of Contents • Draw a text box on the lower half of the front cover, then type the following:Opening a New Document[Tab]2[Enter]Adding Color Swatches[Tab]2[Enter]Building Master Pages[Tab]3[Enter]Adding Text[Tab]3[Enter]Adding Images[Tab]3[Enter]Adding a Table of Contents[Tab]4[Enter]Creating a Wraparound[Tab]5[Enter]Defining and Applying Style Sheets[Tab]5[Enter]Saving a Booklet[Tab]8[Enter]Printing a Booklet[Tab]8[Enter]

  33. Create a Wraparound • Draw a text box on page 5 the width of the third column and a few inches tall. Select the text box with the Black Arrow Tool. Change the background color to a 20% tint of Pantone 315. • To change the inset, choose Option (menu): Text Frame Options. Change the Inset to 0.125 inches on all four sides. • To change the outset, choose Window (menu): Text Wrap. Choose Wrap Around Bounding Box. Change the outset amount to 0.125 inches on all four sides. Copy and paste a small section of text into the blue box. Use Smart Guides to position the box centered in the first gutter.

  34. Style Sheets • Style sheets are a way to speed up your productivity by defining repeating attributes under a name and keyboard shortcut, then applying said attributes with a single click or keystroke.

  35. Define Style Sheets • Choose Type (menu): Paragraph Styles. At the bottom of the Paragraph Styles Panel, click the notepad to create a new style, then double-click “Paragraph Style 1” to open it. • In the General category, change the style name to “Body Text.” • Under the Basic Character Formats category, choose Font Family: Gill Sans, and Font Style: Regular.

  42. Applying Style Sheets • Using the Text Tool, select all (Command/CTRL+A) the text and click Body Text in the Paragraph Styles panel. • Select each heading one at a time, then click Headings in the Paragraph Styles.

  43. Updating Style Sheets • Assuming your client wants to change all the headings to Pantone green, double-click the Headings style sheet, then go into the Character Color category, and choose Pantone 5757. The headings throughout the entire booklet change instantly. It’s possible to change style sheet attributes instantly throughout the entire document in this manner.

  44. Save Booklet • Choose File (menu): Save... Save the InDesign Document (.INDD) in the downloaded folder.

Click OK. • Back in the Print Booklet window, leave Booklet Type on 2-Up Saddle Stitch. • Click Preview, and you’ll see printer’s spreads—pages sequenced so that when they are printed, then assembled, are viewed in order by the reader. Page 8 is next to page 1, page 2 is next to page 7, page 3 is next to page 6, and page 4 is next to page 5. The odd pages will be on the right of each spread and the even pages will be to the left.

  46. Printing a Booklet • If printed on a duplexing printer, the only task left for the designer will be to fold, insert the 3/6, 4/5 spread into the 1/8, 2/7 spread, and staple them along the spine with a special long-handled stapler or saddle-stitching machine.
