Layout Techniques

Working in InDesign isn't limited to just creating frames and filling them with content. You can also spend time arranging objects within your layout. Let's explore some of the techniques that are used to manipulate page layouts in InDesign.

Snippets

As you're working in InDesign, you can drag objects from your layout into Bridge (see Figure 8.48). Doing so creates an InDesign snippet, which is like a miniature InDesign file. You can then drag snippets back into any InDesign layout as you need them. These snippets are actually saved in an XML-based InDesign format (.inds) and can even be copied to servers or emailed to others as well. Snippets can contain styles and maintain all formatting of objects.
