On your own

1.
Try out more drag-and-drop techniques for XML. Open InDesign and choose File > New > Document. Set up any options you want for the document, and then choose File > Import XML and select the XML document you created earlier in this lesson. Although you'll see no difference in the document window, choose View > Show Structure and you'll see the entire content list.

At this point, you can try out two different techniques:

  • Use the rectangle tool and rectangle frame tool to create some placeholder frames on the blank page. Then drag the tagged content from the Structure pane and drop it into the placeholder frames.

  • Simply drag the tagged content from the Structure pane and drop it onto the blank page. Using the selection tool, resize the frames and move them into position, as needed.

2.
If you have Adobe GoLive installed on your computer, create a Web page layout for the recipes and assign tags. Then import the 11_Desserts.xml file into that layout.

3.
Experiment with exporting one of your documents, pages, or images in SVG format. Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is ideal for on-screen viewing, such as Web pages, because it ensures that your vector graphics will always appear in the highest-quality resolution. With SVG, your readers can zoom in to any magnification and still see crisp, sharp edges on SVG objects.

To export specific pages to SVG, choose File > Export. Then select SVG or SVG Compressed in Save As Type (Windows) or Format (Mac OS). In the SVG Options dialog box, select Range and type the page numbers that you want to export.
