    Awesome videos Euge... er, Hank. Thanks!

    Q: I'm looking at the sample file that was included with the 'Rules Rule' video. The last example:



    That little glyph there... had me going. I see it's in the glyph set panel--another ID area I've had little to do with. In the Story Editor it appears as a lowercase j. But... it's obviously not. No Styles applied. So, does the Story Editor map the display of Glyphs differently for its display, or how does that work?

      Paragraph Styles and Character Styles, et al Styles are your friend.

      For beginners you can't go wrong with Sandee Cohen Quick Start Guide

      These are also available for several versions of InDesign - so get the one closest to the version you have.

        Bob - that appears to be Adobe Caslon Pro - in the Glyph Panel there's an arrow beside the lower case "j" click and hold for "Alternate" glyphs.

        The story editor displays just the text - and it is using the letter "j" - so that's what it shows. It's a great way to find out what Letter was used to produce a certain Glyph.

        A lot of fonts have Alternate Glyphs - check some out in Adobe Garamond Pro - for example. There's ornaments, scientific figures - loads of things.


        A lot of well made fonts will have built in alternate glyphs, mostly for ligatures.

          I see here a good begin. I think you need to kill your darling and make an new logo that doesn't look like this ones. When you begin with making a new logo you got inspired by a lot of things.

          Hi Connarr, I like your website and it looks very impressive. The only suggestion I would like to give is the responsive part of your website. The buttons are to near together. This makes clicking difficult....
