Chapter 7. Importing and Exporting > Inside the Structure View

Inside the Structure View

It’s all about structure. No matter how crazy and free-form your layout, your brain—and the brains of your audience—impose a structure on the content of your document. This is true, whether you’re conscious of it or not. So don’t be afraid of the word “structure” or try to deny that your documents have it. It’s there. You can choose to work with it or not. Once you’re out of your “denial” phase, you’ll find InDesign’s Structure view a powerful ally.

Using the options in the Structure view, you can create XML elements and attributes, associate elements with InDesign page items or text, rearrange XML elements, and delete XML elements (see Figure 7-29). Even if you don’t work with XML you’ve probably already found the Structure view—it’s all too easy to expand it by accident when you’re trying to add a ruler guide or reposition the zero point.
