Now, talking of palettes is very important to lay out a workspace inside of InDesign to work for you as well. Now, if you look her under the window menu, you will see there is a list of all of the palettes that InDesign currently has available. Now, some of them are grouped into submenu, so there is an automation option here, come down, we have the interactive options that were introduced in the last version of InDesign, very cool options indeed. Object and layout, slightly new organization for the align navigate to path find the entrance form palettes, the output palettes are still together although trapping has been put in there and then we still have type and tables at the bottom which just gives us access to another few.
Now, most of these palettes are available on screen at any one time but we can customize this using a workspace. Now, workspace is shown up here at the top of the list, and we can see that currently there are no workspaces inside of InDesign but you see that there is a default one. Now, just to make sure we are also starting on the same page, I want you to go ahead and choose default which will reset all of our setting that we currently have back to scratch. So if you have moved any of the palettes around in the window, they will now be back to default. One thing we should just double check, go back to the type tool, go back to paragraph, and you can see the hyphenation is still turned off. This is a local preference that we have just change, the workspace relates to the palettes.
So come back to the selection tool, let us go to the palettes on the upper right hand side of the screen first, we can see that we have here is what is called a palette cluster. It is one area of palettes that can contain many different ones, the same down here with the object styles. If you click on that and it slides out, we have the paragraph styles, character styles, and swatch is only one, and there are others below this on screen as well. But when it comes to organizing the palettes in InDesign, there are many ways we can actually do it. Let us say, we take the layers palette here at the top or just select that. Click on the tab where it says Layers and drag it out of this palette cluster on the right and you will see it becomes its own floating palette here inside of InDesign. First, similar to every other Adobe program that you used.
Now these palettes could be stored on their own, on the screen, they will be positioned anywhere and scaled up or down to suite the size that you need but you can also group other palettes together in a couple of different ways. Let us say, we take the info palette here now from the pages and drag it out just into its own space for a second and now take the info and drag it into the layers palette anywhere inside this area and this creates another palette cluster. This time it is not on the side of the page, it is simply here on its own. So this is a very interesting way to store the palettes as well, however, this only gives you access to one palette or another at any one time. You do have to select between them. You wanted to view both of them at the same time, what you could do instead is type the word info, drag it out again into its own palette, now drag it back, but this time put it right on the bottom of the layers palette and you will see a solid line appear across the bottom. If you go a little too high, you will see it becomes a line, it goes all the way around the inside that will again dock it inside the other palette, that is not what we want to do. Drag it back out, take the word info just place it on the bottom until you see that solid line and now you will see that info becomes attached to the bottom of the layers palette.
Now, this is handy because the collapse icon up here at the top of the layers palette will actually close both of those together and opens them at the same time. Also if you collapse and then double click on one of them, it will open just that down keeping the other one close. This is again another very efficient way of organizing the palettes. Now, I think the best way to organize them is the way they are currently set up at the moment. With this wonderful sliding mechanism that closes of the side of the page and back on again. S what we are going to do is set ourselves up a workspace here that is a bit more efficient for what we want to do throughout the training. So we are going to drag the info palette back out onto its own, and then put it back up here inside the pages palette but then select pages and make sure that is the one that is currently highlighted. The reason we do that is when we make a workspace from this the order in which you have these palettes visible is the order that they will appear when you reset the workspace. So if we had info in the foreground that will always show up in the foreground every time we load that workspace to make sure a page is visible there.
