Help Working with InDesign Templates


We’ve put together a collection of helpful tips to make editing our InDesign templates super easy. If you’re a newbie to Adobe InDesign it’s worth checking these out before starting work on your design.

How to Open an InDesign Template
Step 1. Download the file.

Step 2. Our InDesign templates are packaged and saved as ZIP files. If you have a Windows computer Right Click > Extract All before opening the InDesign file.

Step 3. If you’re running InDesign CS6 open the INDD version of the file. If you’re working with InDesign CS4, CS5 or CC open the IDML version.

How to Work With Layers in Your Document
Our InDesign templates are organized into layers, which group similar elements together. The layers in your document can be controlled from the Layers panel (Window > Layers).

How to Add Your Own Text
The text across this design can easily replaced with your own copy. Simple use the Type Tool (T) to select the text box you wish to insert your text into. This template has been set up with filler body text. To replace this with your own text but retain the same formatting, highlight the filler text and delete it. Then you can either Edit > Paste in copied text or File > Place a Word document directly into the text frame. If you prefer, you can then add your own fonts and formatting.

To create a print-ready file, choose Adobe PDF (Print) from the Format drop-down menu in the Export window.

How to Change the Fonts in a Document
You can format individual items of text using the Type Tool (T) and Controls panel, which you’ll find running along the top of the InDesign workspace. The fonts in most templates are not set as InDesign styles. However, it’s easy to create a Character or Paragraph Style using existing text formatting, and then edit this from the Styles panels (Window > Styles).
