Маркус Гард, типограф: Сеточная система вёрстки



Маркус Гард, типограф. Сеточная система вёрстки

Ходил на сайт (www.bachgarde.com) известного сеточника — Маркуса Гарда, а там нашёл интереснейшую статью по основам гармоничной вёрстки. Статья заточена под Индизайн. Очень порадовал экскурс в историю, куча примеров расчётов сеток. Есть ссылка на полезное приложение для полуавтоматического моделирования сеток в любой программе вёрстки, хотя конечно упор в ней опять же — на Индизайн. В общем, один юзер решил перевести её, оцените: http://totsamiyshigaev.livejournal.com/13606.html

Running header and TOC help?

Hi everyone! I'm a former Quark user who, despite officially being a copy writer now, has somehow become my department's InDesign guru. I'm entirely self-taught on InDesign and don't know diddly about script writing. But I've been tasked with spiffing up our [giant hot mess of a] standard template, and I've hit a few snags. I'm hoping someone here can help.

Endnote FRUSTRATION

 I'm working on a U.S. Historical manuscript for an author who inserted reference numbers into the text that connected to endnotes. The numbering process was in Roman numerals. I worked through the editing process in MS WORD, but when I pulled the the manuscript into InDesign, it changed the numbering to Arabic. What can I do to fix this?

I'm still working on version InDesign CS, and probably should upgrade, but everything--hardware, software--is stable, and I cringe to mess with something that isn't broke, if you know what I mean.

InBooklet SE replacement?

Hi everyone, hoping you can help me? I've just moved from CS2 to CS3 and just realised that I don't have the InBooklet SE plug-in anymore as ALAP were bought out by Quark and now only have the "print booklet" option in the File menu.

Question is does anyone know of any software that gives the same functionality (i.e. create new document) as Inbooklet SE bar having to save as an INX file, open in CS2, check for errors, and then create booklet as that seems rather unneccessary and long winded for something that could be very quick. (I'm not fussed at the cost).

Thanks

Chris.

test?

We're hiring a new production artist, and I've been tasked with creating a skills assessment test. We're document heavy, so we need heavy INDD, but they'll need to be able to know their way around AI and PSD, too. Something that should take them about half an hour, and include importing images, edits to images, and building some quick style sheets. I'm considering building a document and having them recreate it from PDF, giving them type specs, but before I do: Anything like this available online anywhere? I'd really like to avoid rebuilding the wheel if possible...Thanks!

color logos (eps) for BW print - is it ok?

InDesign cs2 - I have some great color logos in eps format that are going into pages that are bw. I went to edit the original file through Illustrator to perhaps convert it to grey scale but the font is not available.

Is it ok to simply leave the eps logo color? Or is there another setting I should be looking at...

Sorry I'm new to this. Srsly learning on the fly.

master pages in a book -

 I'm new to InDesign (and this community - hola!) but have already had to produce things on the fly!

The idea of a book/booklet is new to me. I created one that was only 40 pages earlier, but I think I ended up creating a lot of work for myself.

I'm looking for recommendations for starting a book that will have the same layout on most pages, however I need the reverse for opposite pages - for example, the page on the right will have a graphic on the right, the page on the left will mirror that page - so the graphic will be on left of that page. Make sense?

Previously, I had copied and pasted a completed page (including text!) and edited the text on each page.

Seriously, this cannot be the correct way! I'm thinking some sort of a master page - do I need two? It would be great to be able to just input the layout once/twice for the bulk of the pages.

Of course the other sections of the book will be seperate documents, but I can just add those later.

This book will actually be for printing (my former InDesign task was just to create an electronic document, much less stressful!)

Any hints/tips would be awesome!

glyphs pallete?!

I'm really frustrated here, but I feel like this is a simple problem with a simple solution that I'm just not seeing.

Does anyone have any idea why the glyphs pallete would be coming up with no info whatsoever no matter what font I choose (even those that I know have glyphs)? I'm running CS2 InDesign on an iBook.

I thought about updating, so I've been working on downloading the trial of CS3 but that seems like a ridiculous solution. There's got to be some reason for all this.

Thanks for any advice!
