Mastering the Power of Styles in InDesign
Thursday, March 17, 2011
Santa Monica Library Auditorium, 601 Santa Monica Boulevard, Santa Monica, California 90401
Last month was an all-time high in attendance. Way to grow!
Beverly Houwing was our St. Patrick's Day presenter, speaking on "Mastering the Power of Styles in InDesign." She showed us how to accomplish challenging formatting of text by using nested styles, next style, smart text flow and -- get ready now -- GREP. Before her formal presentation, we were treated to an overture of her exceptional photography.
The big prize of the evening was won by first-time attendee William Baughman, who chose CS5 Flash. Norine Lukaczyk won Makszware's Q2ID plug-in. Robin O'Connell and Deborah Talley each won one-year subscriptions to InDesign Magazine. Estey Theriault won a three-month subscription the Stock Layouts LLC Template Library. Congratulations to all.
Here's a shout out to the meeting's facilitators: Adobe, Recosoft, Andromeda Software, StockLayouts, InDesign Magazine, O’Reilly Press, Peachpit Press, and especially Beverly Houwing.
We are looking for people who want to get involved with the administration of the group. Maybe you have web skills, newsletter skills, an eye for photos, want to conduct the raffles. Whatever. Let's talk.
The next meeting will be held Thursday, May 19, 2011 at 7 p.m. at Ogilvy & Mather in a very strange and wonderful, architecturally significant section of Culver City. This exciting meeting will cover the new release of Adobe Creative Suite 5.5, including what's new in InDesign CS5.5. Our hosts, Ogilvy & Mather, will show us around the agency and explain how they use InDesign during the everyday course of being one of the world's largest advertising agencies.
