I hope you enjoyed your first lesson, where you finished a perky and colorful logo. Don't you think Natalie (of Natalie's Nautical Emporium, of course) would be pleased with the results? Well, get ready for more fun and adventure. In today's lesson, you'll use the logo you finished in Lesson 1 for the letterhead you're designing for Natalie's Nautical Emporium. You're also going to add address text and use another graphic at the bottom of the page. Then,

You'll discover how to choose margins and other settings that make up the document and then how to add the graphic and text features that make up the project.ed2go.ed2go. The arrangement of graphics and text is locked in place on the background (Master) page. When we build the letterhead. and open the folder. when Natalie starts a letter. you'll learn all about starting a new document from scratch. we'll work on a /Master page/. document page moving over background layer Background behind the text You need some files for today's lesson. she'll type on the document page.0/images/resources/prod/id5-0/L02_student which is a separate background layer you regularly use in your InDesign projects. .0/images/resources/prod/id5-0/L02_student s. In the ll use the new /Page/ tool in InDesign CS5 that lets you work with different-sized pages in the same document to make a matching envelope for the letterhead. leaving the letterhead's graphics and text locked in place on the background (Master) page.

or you can add more later that's what we'll do. Likewise. Depending on what you had showing previously. Later. /1/. From the main menu. leave the Intent setting at Print. Chapter 2 *Starting a Fresh Publication* The idea of starting a new project from scratch can be intimidating. like letters. to start the project with a single page. you may or may not see the panels rearrange themselves on the program window.**Click the label**to open the menu and then click *Essentials* (if you were using another workspace) or click *Reset* *Essentials*. posters. you'll start a new document in InDesign to use for your company letterhead. which specify groups of settings that InDesign applies to the document based on the intended use of the file. we set up the program to use the /Essentials/ workspace. Choose *Edit* on Windows. 3. leave it at the default. too. Follow these steps to start a new document: 1. leave the /Document Preset/ box alone (although the name will change to /[Custom]/ as soon as you make a change). Before we get going with the new letterhead. then click *OK* to close the dialog box. . click*Units & Increments* to open the Preferences settings. In Lesson 1. In the *Number of Pages* field. Let s make a change to the program settings. you'll see inches used throughout the program's dialog boxes and rulers. Okay. so to speak. In Chapter 2. look for the Workspace switcher label. or *InDesign* on Mac. You'll see the New Document dialog box open. choose *File* > *New* > *Document*. *Choosing Document Settings* The first thing we have to do is choose settings for the letterhead publication. New Document dialog box New document options 2. On the Application bar at the top of the program window. You can choose either Print or Web /intents/. You can start a new document with any number of pages you wish. let's get started. Now we re all on the same page. A /Document Preset/ is a group of settings like margins stored in InDesign for different page sizes. and can get down to business. legal documents. and so on. 4. but don't worry you can always go back and fine-tune your settings after you've created the document. Preferences panel showing ruler settings Change the ruler settings to show inches In the Ruler Units area. I want you to check your workspace.*Setting up InDesign* Go ahead and open *InDesign*. At the top of the dialog box. When the submenu opens. to open the menu and choose *Preferences*. choose *Inches* for both the Horizontal and Vertical settings.

as well as the default /Gutter/ value. With the margins linked. In the /Page Size/ area. or Master page. The first time to save it is when you've chosen the settings and started the publication which is where we are right now. From the InDesign program menu. too. or add drawings. you'll use /Save/ instead of /Save As/ because you'll be saving it with the same name. /Orientation/ refers to how the height and width of a document are related.25/ in any of the fields. Saving a file is a two-part process choosing the location for storing the file. let's save the file. 8. you won't have to redo a lot of work.5. and then click another field anywhere on the dialog box. It shows /Save As/ rather than just /Save/ because you haven't saved the file before. For the /Orientation/. leave the /Number/ at /1/. and you'll be saving your file every few minutes! * Saving a New Publication * Saving your file from time to time is a very good habit to develop. Uncheck the *Master Text Frame* check box. *Note* Later. click the *Make All Settings the Same* button (it looks like a chain) between the pairs of fields. /Portrait/ means the height is greater than the width. you'll use /Save As/. Click the check box to deselect the *Facing Pages* option. We're deselecting the option because our letterhead doesn't need to use facing page layouts and margins. That way. The default here is a single column on the page. so that doesn't apply here. Take it from me all you have to do is lose your hard work once. This places one text frame on the background. if something happens to your computer. *Tip* It's always a good idea to save a file once you've started it and again whenever you insert content like images and text. making a change to one margin changes all the margins' values. 7. 6. Do you see all the rest of the margins change automatically? 11. If you want to save the letterhead with a different name or in a different location and maintain the original file. The /gutter/ is the space between two or more columns. and that's all we need for a letter. 9. Under /Columns/. You'll see the Save As dialog box open. leave the default /Letter/ setting since we're designing a publication for writing letters. You'd use this to create a document with two-page spreads left and right pages like a book or magazine. The new document opens in the InDesign program window. but we don't need it because we'll add our own custom text frame later. In the /Margins/ area. then choose *Save*. Type /1. leave the left button selected so that it shows the /Portrait/ orientation. 10. and then naming it. choose *File*. Click *OK* to close the New Document dialog box. That's all there is to starting a new project! Before we go any further. .

Do you see the name highlighted with a black background? That means you've selected it. Now you see all the folders and items from your computer's Desktop. Click the /Class Projects/ folder to select it. Let's get back to our new project. Now that the background is ready. Click *Save*. You don't have to worry about typing the file format in the /File name/ field. When the menu closes. all you have to do is click *File* on the InDesign menu. let's get the first item in place that . which shows the file's name as /Untitled-1. you don't have to go through a series of steps to find your file.In the Save As dialog box. the next time you open the program. For our first job. * At the left edge of the status bar below the document window. The dialog box closes. If you look close to the bottom of the Save As dialog box. look for the number 1. If you finish working on a lesson or project and close InDesign. and then click *Open Recent*. *Tip* If you choose A-Master from the dropdown list on the status bar. There are three rectangles on the panel two at the right side and one at the left below a horizontal line. and away you go. Click the text in the field to select it. InDesign automatically inserts the correct file format according to the option shown in the /Save as type/ field. click the *Pages* tab notice the Pages panel undocked from the panel area on the program window. Instead. Save As dialog box showing file name and format Type a name for the file Leave the /Save as type/ choice InDesign CS5 document setting as is. When you save the file. click the *Save in* drop-down arrow at the top to open a list of locations on your hard drive. you'll see the files you've saved in the class so far. We're in the right place! Now for the second part: naming the file. you need to double-click to show the page in the document window.indd/. the master page displays automatically. Watch what happens when you make the selection you'll see the same page selected in the other location as well. you'll see the /A-Master/ label on the status bar. Click the drop-down arrow and click *A-Master*. InDesign saves the file with the new name in the InDesign document format and stores it in your /Class Projects/ folder. let s add the logo and image file you downloaded to the Master page to create a background. Double-click *A-Master*. In the Save As dialog box. and you're back to your new document in the InDesign program. Here are two ways to show the Master page (use whichever one you prefer!): Choose the page from the status bar or the panel Choose the page from the status bar or the panel * In the panels at the right of the program window. and then type /L02-letterhead/ to name the file. and click *Desktop *(or wherever you saved your class folder). If you select the item in the Pages panel. Got it? That's the page number in your document. Click the name of the file you want to open. You'll see a list of the last few publications you worked with. you'll see the /File name/ field.

If you look at the cursor. take a few seconds to save the file. you'd be right. click *File*. The dialog box closes. InDesign shows the white cursor when your object comes within snapping distance of any guide on the page. Look through the files. or snaps. *Placing an InDesign File* I'm sure you'd guess you could use different types of image files in your InDesign publication. The drop-down list closes. you'll see a tiny copy of the logo attached. depending on whether or not you've opened other files during this work session. and then click *Place*. and click *L01-logo-end* to select it. and can go ahead and ignore it for images and other files. the loaded content jumps. notepad and pen *Note* When you're adding the InDesign document. As you see here. and here's how to do it: 1. 3.indd contains missing or modified links. and click *Class Projects*. 2. The logo attached to the cursor is ready to drop on the page as soon as you tell InDesign where you want it to go. The color change means you're close enough so that when you click. Remember that in Lesson 1 you used a loaded cursor. 4. move the loaded cursor to the upper-left edge of your letterhead page. Click the *Look in* drop-down arrow at the top of the dialog box to open a list of areas on your hard drive. Not bad for one chapter! We ll go on to Chapter 3 to add another graphic and text. before we do. and you return to InDesign. You ve started a new file and added the first graphic. and then click *Save*. From the main InDesign menu. too. Drop the logo into position The logo snaps into position Go ahead and click to place the logo now. Look toward the bottom of the list for folders stored on your Desktop (or wherever you placed your class folder). You may see your class folder open automatically. Then. But. you might see this message: The document L01-logo-end. The original document originated on a different computer using a different folder system. and of course. you'll see that message. where the two magenta guides for the margins meet at the corner. Look at the cursor closely Loaded icon indicator do you see the black arrow in the upper-left corner of the cursor? Good. The Place dialog box opens. But did you know you could add one InDesign publication into another publication? You sure can. Now. Throughout the course. onto the cursor. You won't see any dialog boxes open since you've already . the black arrow on the cursor suddenly changes to a white arrow Loaded icon indicator at snapping location. the upper and left sides of the logo are at the same location as the upper and left margin guides. click *Open*. into position right at the margin guides where you want it. showing the files for your lessons on the dialog box. or loaded. When you get close to the corner. which is about halfway down the menu.stylish logo we designed in Lesson 1. choose *File*. From the main InDesign menu. Place it anyway? Click OK to place the file.

Perhaps you clicked the mouse before the illustration snapped to the right and bottom margins. it's easy to move. you won't find your previous selections in the dialog boxes anymore. Click to drop the file when you see the cursor's arrow change to white to snap the drawing to the guides across the bottom of the page. but there s a lot more to do! We need to add a footer graphic. so you don't have to pick a folder location again as long as the program is open. 2. click *File*. *Inserting and Sizing a Graphic File* Adding the graphic for the bottom of the letterhead is similar to how you added the logo at the top of the page: 1. and then click *Place* to open the Place dialog box again. Chapter 3 *Adding Graphics and Text to a New Document* So far we ve placed an InDesign file into our new InDesign publication. Now it s on to Chapter 3 to add more content to the letterhead. let s move to the bottom of the letterhead to add another graphic. If you did.named and saved the file.

Either method closes the dialog box and loads the cursor with the illustration file. you're doing the same thing as clicking to select the file and then clicking *Open*. the location in the Look in field at the top of the dialog box shows your Class Projects folder. Double-click the *letterhead_footer* file the Open dialog box closes. Double-clicking is just quicker! 3. The Selection tool is active once you drop the file on the page. taking you back to InDesign. as well as address and contact information text. click anywhere over the graphic and drag it. You want to line up the left of the illustration with the left margin guide and the top of the illustration with the bottom margin guide. Whew! It's great to have the graphics added to the publication at last. Are you ready to keep going? That s great. It s a good start. First up. This time. and you see the contents of the folder listed on the dialog box. But what if the graphic needs some adjusting or isn't the right size? No problem. *Tip* InDesign remembers the selections you make in different dialog boxes. Move the loaded cursor down the page and over the margin guides. With the Selection tool.

Okay. look closely we've lost the bubbles! 3. 2. and at about the 9-1/2 inch mark on the vertical ruler. The simplest way to add the text is in a single text frame. drag down the bottom margin guide. to the level of the text box is see a dotted left margin . don't you think? The only problem is that the graphic is wider than the margin settings. You'll see the image shrink slightly to fit properly within the resized frame you'll know the content shows properly when you see the little bubbles at the right of the graphic (like the example shown here). and drag to the right until at the right margin guide. I've given you instructions on where to put the text frame. and release the mouse to snap the graphic into alignment with the left and bottom margin guides.
