A Quick Tour of Adobe InDesign > Getting started

Getting started

You'll start the tour by opening a partially completed document. You'll add the finishing touches to this 6-page article on Mexican folk art written for an imaginary travel magazine. Before you start Adobe InDesign, you should restore the default preferences for InDesign if you have not already done so in this session. Restoring default preferences ensures that the tools and palettes function exactly as described in this lesson. After you learn how to use InDesign, this step is no longer necessary.

1.
Delete or deactivate the InDesign Defaults file and the InDesign SavedData file, following the procedure in “Restoring default preferences” on page 3.

2.
Start Adobe InDesign.

3.
Choose File > Open, and locate the ID_00 folder in the Lessons folder you copied from the InDesign Classroom in a Book CD to your hard disk:

4.
In the ID_00 folder, double-click ID_01.indd.

If an alert message appears that asks which dictionary file you want to use, click No (Windows) or Document (Mac OS).

5.
Choose File > Save As, and rename the file Tour in the ID_00 folder. If someone else has created this file, choose Yes to replace it.
