  • Our members have spoken -- and we hear you! Join us for a quick and tailored InDesign course with InDesign + Marketing expert Fawn Radmanich, CPSM. How many times have you signed up and attended a comprehensive Adobe InDesign course, only to leave feeling like it was meant for the general publishing community and not for the A/E/C industry? InDesign is such a powerful tool, and is quickly becoming the standard for our proposals, brochures, and leave-behind layouts.

    Let us know what you would like to see / learn / clarify! Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to engage directly with the instructor. A few of the responses we've received so far include:

    • There's this button here (screenshot image attached)...what does it do?
    • Setting up styles for text seems easy enough, but I'm completely stumped when it comes to tables. Please help?
    • Please explain "styles"...I still don't understand why I need them.
    • What's the best/fastest way to change fonts in a hurry? (BTW my document has no set styles.)
    • What's the difference between "bleed" and "slug", and under what circumstances do I use them?

    Please send all questions and course topics to Cindy Ionita (cindy.ionita@swaarch.com). Please also feel free to bring questions and examples to the class if it's difficult to explain in an email
