This course introduces students to a variety of ways to format text in Adobe InDesign CC. Students will learn how to access all of the essential, as well as more advanced, formatting options to make sure that their documents are professional, readable, and accurate.

Course Objectives

The goal of this course is to teach students how to apply any type of text formatting they might need. By the end of this course, you will be able to make your text look however you need it to suit the needs of your document, and you will be ready to continue learning other advanced features as well.

Who Should Attend?

This class is intended for students who are somewhat familiar with the basics of InDesign, but, though the course does not offer a general overview of the application or lessons on navigating the interface, learning how to work with text is a great place for beginners to start.
