In Part II: InDesign Case Study: Adding interactivity to long complex documents,  graphic designer and InDesign expert Tom Berglie will delve deeper into his explanation of a real-world project that was recently published. Now it’s time to turn the print version into an interactive PDF.

Last July,   Tom introduced us to the project. The publication is an application manual that uses features like multilevel text styling, tables, text variables, footnotes, cross-references, and multiple tables of contents, in order to accommodate a complex structure that is still easy to navigate for the reader.

Please download these two PDFs to follow along with the recorded demonstration of Part I:

InDesign is the world-leading publication layout program for all kinds of colorful and visually rich publications, from a single business card to brochures, posters, magazines, newspapers, textbooks, and on and on. InDesign is also packed with features for text-intensive documents that require little or no graphics, but instead, rely on typography and structure to organize the contents in a reader-friendly manner.
