Part 2: Building Pages > Making Objects Non-printing

Chapter 23. Making Objects Non-printing

You can make objects non-printing (that is, they appear on screen but don’t print out) in XPress by turning on the Suppress Printout checkbox in the Modify dialog box. InDesign lets you do this, too, but because the feature is somewhat hidden, many people don’t even know the feature exists. There are many reasons you might want non-printing objects in your document. For instance, you might want to add a note you want someone else handling the document to see, but which you don’t want to appear when you print out the page that it’s on.

To make an object non-printing in InDesign, open the Attributes palette (from the Window menu), select the object, and turn on the Nonprinting checkbox (see Figure 23-1).
