Review answers

1You can select commands from the View menu to zoom in or out of a document, or fit it to your screen; you can also use the Zoom tools in the toolbox, and click or drag over a document to enlarge or reduce the view. In addition, you can use keyboard shortcuts to magnify or reduce the display. You can also use the Navigator palette to scroll through a document or change its magnification without using the document window.
2To select a tool, you can either click the tool in the toolbox or you can press the tool’s keyboard shortcut. For example, you can press V to select the Selection tool from the keyboard. You select hidden tools by clicking the triangle on a tool in the toolbox and dragging to select from the additional tools that appear.
3To make a palette appear, you can click its tab or choose its name on either the Window menu or the Type menu, for example, Window > Object Layout > Align. You can drag a palette’s tab to separate the palette from its group and create a new group, or drag the palette into another group. You can drag a palette group’s title bar to move the entire group. Double-click a palette’s tab to display palette titles only. You can also press Shift+Tab to hide or display all palettes, but keep the toolbox open.
4Adobe InDesign contains interactive Help, which includes keyboard shortcuts and full-color illustrations. You can also find links to training and support resources on the Adobe Systems web site, Adobe.com.
