If you are watching this video, you most likely fall into one of three categories, A) you are a Quark express user who has just purchased InDesign and you want to get up to speed quickly using the skills you already have, B) you are a Quark Express user who is considering to move to InDesign and you want to kick the tires before you buy, or C) you have inserted the wrong disk in your computer and you are wondering why you are not hearing Bobby Goldsboro's greatest hits right now.
If you are A or B, you have come to the right place. We will be showing you where all the goodies you are used to using in Quark are in InDesign and how they behave differently. If you are category C, I have also got good news for you, the first part of this video is heavily scripted talk, but the second half is all set to music and I sing all the lines. I am no Bobby Goldsboro but I can sing a description of stuff and repeat as well as anyone. My name is Russell Viers and welcome to Total Training for Quark to InDesign CS3.
I started using InDesign when it was still code named K2 in its Beta form back in 1999. I did my first workshop on it just days after its release and I have been teaching it ever since. In fact, I am an Adobe Certified Instructor in InDesign as well as Photoshop and Illustrator. Before converting to InDesign for my personal work, I was a QuarkXPress fan and before that PageMaker and before that I set type on Compugraphic MDT 350s and EditWriter 7500s, those were the days.
To kick things off, it makes sense to me that we take a tour of the interface or the environment in which we are going to work. It will help us lay a good foundation for finding what we need once we are ready to start building documents.
