Creating a library

Now you’ll create your own library.

1.
Choose File > New > Library. Type CD Projects as the library filename, navigate to the Lesson_08 folder, and click Save. The library appears in its own floating palette, labeled with the filename you specified.

2.
Go to page 3 and, using the Selection tool (), drag the “ricky records” logo to the library you just created. The logo is now saved in the library for use in other InDesign documents.

3.
In the CD Projects library, double-click the “ricky records” logo. For Item Name, type Logo, and then click OK.

4.
Using the Selection tool, drag the address text block to the library you created. It appears in the CD Projects library palette.

5.
In the CD Projects library, double-click the address text block. For Item Name, type Address, and then click OK. Now your library contains both text and graphics. As soon as you make changes to the library, InDesign saves the changes.

Note

Graphics stored using an InDesign library still require the original, high-resolution file for printing. The entire graphic file is not copied into the library, and it maintains a link to the original source file.

6.
Close the Library.
