    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
      http://www.amazon.com/InDesign-CS5-M.../dp/0321705203

      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.

          Design schools are too often administered and staffed by academics with insufficient real-world experience in what the school teaches. As for AIGA, it's mostly a social club for people who enjoy socializing...

          It doesn't really matter what a high quality color-munkied monitor displays,
          any more than the descriptions of colors given above.

          A splash page that you have to scroll down is actually even worse than just a splash page you click on.
          But if it's just a personal site and not graphic design portfolio material, have at it. In...

          Hi PrintDriver, you've got a point!
          To be honest I've only been focusing on the computer version, I'm aware there will be a few (haha, actually many) problems with the mobile version, I'll have...
