One of the first things you want to learn about InDesign is type/text. Do that by selecting the text tool & create a text frame.
To add type, click on the text frame and them just type.
For Styles go to Windows, go down to Styles, then click on Paragraph Styles.
(insert notes here)
That will format your text in add heading style.
Select whatever file you want to use.
You can add pictures by creating a red box & going to File > Place.
Review: Things to Remember
- A red plus sign in the lower-right corner of a text frame indicates that there’s more text in the frame than can be displayed within the current frame called overset text.
- To reposition an image inside of a frame, click the semi-transparent circle known as the Content Indicator located in the center of an image. You can also use the Direct Selection tool to manipulate an image inside a frame.
- To insure ensure that if you reposition the panels in InDesign to your liking, you can always bring them back to that state by saving a custom workspace by choosing Window > Workspace > New Workspace.
If you cannot see panels that you need to use, you must remember that when the workspace is changed, the list of available panels also changes. Use the Advanced workspace to view all the panels. All panels can also be found under the Window menu. Simply choose the panel you want to use from the list, and it displays.
