Show Notes & Links



  • Use the Text Frame in InDesign rather than an image frame
  • Utilize GREP styling and Text Styles more generally
  • Use Quick Apply
  • Remove Character Styles and replace with Paragraph Styles for longer passages of text
  • Use InDesign for page layout … NOT ILLUSTRATOR (Japan) and definitely NOT PHOTOSHOP (psychopaths)
  • Learn ePUB from Anne-Marie, she’s the best (fixed-layout or flowable)


  • Repeatedly use features so they become a habit
  • Continue to learn by watching videos, experimenting, reading articles
