    Yes, thank you Scott for a Very Informative presentation that was well organized. All of it is very useful and time saving (once practiced). To know where to find what you need and what it is called makes a difference.

      Thank you for that Adelia.

    Though I am not currently an InDesign user, I learned valuable lessons that I may be able to apply in the future.

    Thanks for the tip on how to span a heading over multiple columns. This will save me a lot of time (when I put my next newsletter together) compared to the way I was doing it before. Also, thank you for the free ebook - I look forward to reading something from Pariah Burke.

    Great meeting last night.... thank you Scott for covering the hidden gems in InDesign that are great time savers for making global changes to documents. It was great to see some of the tools that I've wanted to know how to use being put to work in publications.

    This Meetup about Adobe InDesign was too advanced for me to be able to follow along with the tips and tricks being discussed. But still educational.

    January 27, 2014

    • Michael L.

      I did learn how powerful this app can be as are all of Adobe's products. I will be looking more into learning InDesign. Thank you Celeste for this meet up, the t-shirt, and book bag! ALL will be put to good use! Thanks again

    I'm very sorry I'll be missing tonight's presentation on InDesign. I use InDesign every day, and I'm always interested in learning more about it from another active user. Please include me on the distribution list for tips, tricks, websites, etc.

    My schedule has gone sideways for the day, do I can't mark it after all. Looking forward to next month!

    All, We will be meeting in a different room tonight at the library. Instead of the Theater on the left at the bottom of the stairs - we will meet in the East gallery which is on the right side, opposite the Theater. Yes, still downstairs.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight. Scott has put together a fantastic show and tell. You'll want to take notes!

    Parking is free in the Indian Head Plaza parking lot at the top of Temple Street.

    This sound like not too much of a stretch to use this for a year book.
    with text articles, photos and ads.
