InDesign Shortcuts

May 16, 2012 by E. David Ferriman

The following are shortcuts to commonly asked questions about InDesign I have run into. It is in no way all encompassing, but rather a tool for those new to InDesign looking for a quick fix. If you would like to see anything added, send me an email.

Pica to Inches by Default:

Close all open documents.
InDesign Preferences >Units & Increments > Horizontal/Vertical Ruler Units (two drop down boxes) > Change from Picas to Inches or any other option on the list > Click OK

Drop Shadow:

Select Object > Effects > Drop Shadow (Win:Ctrl+Alt+M, Mac:Comand+Option+M)
