Monday, 4:45 – 5:30 pm

This session focuses on how to get the most out of InDesign’s typographic toolset—and how to avoid common typesetting pitfalls that will undermine the credibility of your work. From the micro (the optimum amount of space between the dots of an ellipsis) to the macro (how to establish hierarchy and effectively use white space) this session will be full of tips and tricks for type novices and veterans alike:

  • Minding your H&Js
  • Managing Widows, Orphans, and Runts
  • Control freakery with grids
  • White Space: active, not empty!
  • The proverbial devil in the details: special characters and formatting
