  • 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.

            I think you'd do better to put a smily face in one of the circular letter forms, as that would at least emphasize commitment to 'nice'.

            If the logo is not what you had in mind, why do you show it here?
            If you are working with a crowdsource, let that be a lesson to you.

            I'd say there are three big issues that leap out to me.

            1. Navigating is really difficult - I just have to guess where to click and it takes me to a page, though I'm not often sure where...
