    I've never understood the arbitrary "skill scale" of ranking how great you are at using a particular program. What exactly are measuring your proficiency in each program?

    First question in my mind is why the mesh looking gradient on the circle? Kinda distracts my eye from the words. I'd suggest going for a flat approach and just use a shade of purple. What keening matters...

    Yeah I understand what you guys are saying. :3 I know I'm more than just someone who thinks they can call themselves a designer just because they make pretty work. I actually get minor headaches when...

    Thanks for the advice. What if I take the logo on the back, center the words and add white space to both sides? Like add white space on the top right corner since I'm printing them in matte so they...

  • Background tasks - INDESIGN

    Is there anyway to disable the background tasks from running when I pdf from InDesign?

    I am only trying to pdf simple visuals and its taking an eternity to complete the task as its running BACKGROUND TASKS (I cant even save and close the InDesign doc) - I can see where this would be a great tool as you approach print readiness - but its a pain in the backside earlier in the design process.

    Appreciate any help

    Thanks
    Steve

    Background tasks cannot be turned off.

    However, it shouldn't take any more time to make the PDF - it should take the same amount of time. There was an issue with PDFs and background tasks, and I think it was ironed out in an update. Make sure your InDesign is fully updated.

    If it's taking too long to make the pdf then there could be something wrong. A quick way to avoid the background task is to make a new Book (File>New Book) and insert the indesign file in there. When you make a PDF from the Book Panel sub-menu it does not use the Background Task.


    You could also choose File>Export>PDF (interactive) this too avoids Background Tasks - but it always makes spreads of a facing page document (there is no option to not have spreads (double annoying)).


    So in short - if the PDF is taking forever then there is something wrong. Avoid the background task by placing your file in a book file and export from the book panel instead.

        It was taking much longer to make PDFs, but I haven't noticed it recently. It must've been fixed in an update, as Eugene said.
