Zen and the art of InDesign workspacesmijlee (501 pencils) | Tue, 2005-08-30 19:00
Hopefully anyone that has been using InDesign for a time will have found this alread but for newbies or those who don't fiddle with apps…
One of the best things about InDesign over Quark for me is the ability to really control your workspace and keep things hidden and within easy reach at all times. I find it's much easier to work when your workspace is uncluttered and only the panels you need are permanently active. The rest I dock to either the left of the right of the screen.
To do this just grab the tap of the panel you want to move, you should get a ghost to drag around if you hold down on the tab for long enough. Once you have the ghost drag it to either the left of the right of the screen until it pops into an upright position, it will then lock into place. You can now click the tab to show and hide it whenever you need to, a bit like Photoshop's dock.
If you want to steal my workspace I have included it here for download just drop into this folder (you'll have to find it yourself if your on a PC);
/Users/user_name/Library/Preferences/Adobe InDesign/Version 3.0/Workspaces/
