Adobe InDesign is a versatile program that allows you to create professional standard magazines, books, and brochures, flyers and similar materials. It is used in many industries and there are some highly effective and interesting features of Adobe InDesign that serve the purpose for almost everyone using InDesign. 

Today, I bring some set of tools and features together to compile a list of quick tips for users, which you can also learn in quality and hands-on Adobe InDesign training courses in Abu Dhabi. Following guide will also help you to find most common and useful implementations that will help you to quickly fix your design using this application:

1. Precision Resizing With Mathematical Calculation
To resize the object and save your day, math is the best way and it saves your day and Adobe InDesign applies math calculation to simplify the size of resizing and define the dimensions of layout and the object exactly in the size that you want to make it. With the Transform Palette and Control Palette, you can simply calculate and resize the design.

2. Blend Your Text With Story Editor
Story editor is one of the best features of Adobe InDesign software and it helps to take control over the overflowing text frames. This tool shows you hidden text content so you can change in the text frame of your layout. It also helps you to handle complex text easily. 

3. Use Swap Swatch Panel to Switch Between Text and Frame
If you want to select and edit the text frame and apply a stroke affect then this method is good for it. With the help of swap swatch tool, toggling between text and frame is simple to make the text so simple in just a one-click. This tool also helps you to change the color of the entire text.

4. Find Changes
Adobe InDesign document has a lot of texts and it's an uninteresting job to check for the errors, mistakes in each document. But with the Find Changes feature it becomes easy to check and you can also replace a symbol or word into your intended text or symbols.

With Adobe InDesign, anything is done manually on codes and the best thing is that you needn’t be a hardcore coder to use InDesign codes; you can simply copy and paste the script into the respective folder in Indesign folder and quickly achieve the intended results.

6. Quick Apply
With the Quick Apply feature, InDesign attempts to minimize the time investing in designing. This feature accesses the menu commands and applies styles quickly.
