Laurie Ruhlin, Adobe Certified Instructor joined us at our Quarterly User Group Meeting. She spoke earlier this year to a packed room and received rave reviews. This meet­ing was no differ­ent. We had another very full session, and Laurie covered InDesign Tips and Tricks that included:

  • Borders and shad­ing
  • Numbering and bullets
  • Book feature
  • Image tricks

I had the plea­sure of comple­ment­ing Laurie’s presen­ta­tion with what partic­i­pants said was highly infor­ma­tive infor­ma­tion they could use right now. The key topics of my session were:

  • Font tips (includ­ing Adobe Typekit fonts)
  • Font embed­ding
  • Identifying fonts on websites
  • Where fonts are located on your computer
  • SVG color fonts
  • Variable fonts in Adobe Illustrator

For those who couldn’t make the meet­ing as well as those whose notes are a little sketchy, we recorded both sessions. You can access Laurie Ruhlin’s at Ruhlin Presentation and mine, James Wamser’s, at Wamser Presentation. While the record­ings are the next best thing to being there, noth­ing is quite like being there. We hope you’ll join us for our next Quarterly User Group Meeting. Participants will tell you it’s worth your time.
