A. Settings and Preferences

InDesign’s many options are worth exploring. After you get to know them all, you’ll discover that some are helpful time-savers and others are simply a matter of preference.

The Preferences dialog box contains some of the most powerful options in InDesign. You can access the dialog box under the InDesign menu (Mac) or the Edit menu (Win). The Preferences panel listing on the left of the dialog box gives you one-click access to options for screen display, measurement units, text handling, spell-check options, display performance, and much more. This chapter examines all the controls in each Preference panel so that you can start applying them to your InDesign workflow.
