Chapter 7. Defaults & Preferences > Default Preferences

Default Preferences

Like QuarkXPress, InDesign lets you set preferences that control your working environment. Just like in XPress, if you set preferences with no documents open, they apply to all new documents, or you can set them while a document is open for them to apply to only that document. You can access preferences from the Edit menu in or the Application menu (depending on your operating system). You can jump directly to one of the nine preference sections by selecting it from the Preferences submenu, or by choosing General Preferences and then clicking the preference type along the left side of the Preferences dialog box.

General Preferences

The general preferences provide a host of options that are not found in QuarkXPress (see Figure 7-3). For example, because InDesign uses an automatic crash recovery, which is not optional like that found in XPress, you can use this dialog to set the location of the temporary file.
