3.0 out of 5 stars In Design 7 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback
This review is not about using In Design, since I have very little knowledge of the application, my copy is a very old version which I have never used,beyond trying to a Pagemaker file. My intention is to endevour to transfer work produced in Pagemeker 6.5, I have attemted that once but witout a guide I found the whole idea pf converting very stressful since some of the graphics, which are in my Pagemker files would not reproduce in In Design.Everything works perfectly in Pagemaker and converting to a pdf file is perfect, that is not so with In design. I am now 80 years old and I see this as a pensioners challenge. Initially, Adobe were of no help at all suggesting that my graphics produced in Freehand were too complex. I love a challenge and armed with this guide somehow I will overcome. If anyone has had the same problem all be it that the change from Pagemaker to In Design happened many years back, I would like know if they have any tips.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended Noob Book 13 Jan 2008
By Chip Porter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
With zero experience with layout programs, this book did a very credible job of walking me through and making me not only knowledgable, but competent. A couple of spots in the book I thought could have been better arranged...different order of teaching, but that is really a minor detail. A number of software books just take you through the keyboard strokes without detailed explanations of the tools, their properties, and especially, how those tools relate to actaul production. This book does a great job of giving the complete picture of not only how, but when and why.

If you've never used InDesign CS3 this book is for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners 3 Feb 2008
By S. Priest - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is very in depth and the author is clearly knowledgeable, so for that I give it high marks. However, as someone who was completely new to InDesign (and all Adobe programs), I was hoping for a guide that was easy to follow and that gave me some sort of path to take to become comfortable with the program. This guide claims to be "the quick, easy way" to learn but there is no step-by-step instruction and the pages are cluttered with information. I was hoping for a "classroom approach," and this guide reads more like a reference manual with no cohesion between instructions. It's got all the answers, but the presentation is clearly geared toward more experienced users. Anyone approaching Adobe products for the first time should look elsewhere. I am going to try CS3 for dummies and hope for better results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best All Around Book on ID CS3 7 Nov 2007
By S. Citron - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Okay, I know I rated Blatner and Kvern's RWIDCS3 book 5 stars, but when you're on deadline and looking for a quick, concise answer on how to do something fast this one's the book to reach for. Frankly, do yourself a huge favor and keep both titles close at hand. They make a powerful duo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource book for students and professionals 12 July 2008
By Alex Perkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Having bought this book as a requirement for my Page Layout class, I was surprised to see that I actually used the book. Like the QuickStart book for Quark, it offers invaluable information clearly, and is laid out in a streamlined and clean fashion. I have used InDesign CS2 in the past, but CS3 had new tools and shortcuts. This book defines InDesign CS3 effortlessly which is wonderful for students. I have come back time and again to this book when I get stuck. Whether you're a beginner to Adobe InDesign, an intermediate user, or professional you will definitely find a use for this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint of heart 24 Mar 2008
By Dion Morse - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've used InDesign from the first iteration six or seven years ago ... I am reasonibly glib in all its nuances, until I got CS3.

This version adds a LOT of new methods and techniques which aren't too intuitive. But ... Sandee Cohen came to the rescue with this new, comprehensive manual, with a lot of test, methods and various explantions of techniques. As usual, you did good Sandee. Thanks for holding my hand while I scratched my head.
