Name your workspace and check the Panel Locations and Menu Customization checkboxes. ” Custom workspaces can include both panel locations and customized menus. As you become more comfortable with the interface and your own workflow, you will no doubt find certain panels and panel arrangements to be more convenient than others. InDesign retains the changes you make to a workspace until you select Reset (workspace name) from the Workspace dropdown. To redefine the existing workspace with new panel locations, just re-save it with the existing name.

They can be useful as design guides but, unlike print, with interactive design, whatever you put within the boundary of your page will appear reliably in your finished product. If, however, you want to multi-task your document, whatever margins and/or bleeds you establish for the print end will have no negative impact on your interactive piece. Interactive Design Guidelines Certainly, an obvious use of InDesign’s interactive capabilities is to bring life to existing print projects, but you can just as easily create purely interactive projects from scratch.

As computers have become more commonplace and technology has advanced, there has been a marked trend toward higher screen resolution.
