Viewing the lesson document
Before you start working on the magazine layout, you’ll look at the document you’re about to format.
- Adobe Bridge remains open until you exit it. Return to Adobe Bridge and double-click the 02_Start.indd file.
- Choose File > Save As. Type the new name, 02_Tour.indd, in the Save As dialog box. Leave the file type as an InDesign CS4 document, and click Save.
- Click the Pages icon () in the dock at right to view the Pages panel.
- Drag the Pages panel tab to the left, out of the panel group. You can now reposition the Pages panel as necessary.
- In the Pages panel, double-click the numbers 6-7 below the page icons to view the last spread in the document. You may need to scroll to see these.
- View each page in the document, by trying the following methods:
- Double-click the numbers below the page icons to display the full spread in the document window.
- Double-click an individual page icon to display only that page in the document window.
- To center the spread in the window, double-click the Hand tool () in the Tools panel.
- In the Pages panel, double-click the page 3 icon to view page 3.
As you can see, the lesson document starts on a left-facing page—page 2. This is a common setup for a magazine article or other type of document. By default facing-page documents always start on a right-facing page.
Now that you’ve seen all three spreads, let’s go back to page 3 and start working.
