    My favorite line from the generic promo video...

    "There's a shitload of people in the world -- 'specially in India."

    And don't forget the music: a catchy little tune with three notes in the entire song, sounds like it was written by an optimistic hipster.

  • slug area

    hey

    I'm trying to teach my self indesign and I would like to know what the slug area is? And what's its purpose?

    This is probably such a basic question

    The non-printable area of the document -- outside of the page. Where you put additional notes for the printer or file prepper.

        Actually the slug area does get printed. It gets added to your document if specified. It is usually cut off in final trim.

        Very useful for generating proofs with a printed sign off box among other things.

          There's also some neat (but very expensive) slug plugs for ID that do all kinds of wonderful docket chasing things. Mac only as far as I can see.
