You will also master navigation elements, buttons and video, exporting SWF files with animated features on the spreads, working with Live Captions, GREP, Quick Apply, Story Editor, Text Variables and so much more.

 

WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

This class is for advanced users of InDesign with firm understanding of all the general concepts of using the application. On this course, we learn the most advanced techniques. This course is quite intense, so for those with doubts in their knowledge we recommend the InDesign Yellow Belt and Green Belt courses first or to consult our sales team and the instructors.
