[Video] Adobe InDesign Book Template Quick Look

by | Nov 25, 2014

Yesterday I introduced our new book templates for Adobe InDesign, and we’ve already had to field a lot of questions.

So today I sat down and made this video to show you what the templates look like and a little bit of how they are used.

I even make formatting errors and have to recover, always a useful lesson.

Keep in mind this is more of a quick tour so you can see how these templates work from the inside, but it’s not really an instructional video. Follow the steps as they’re outlined in our Formatting Guide to get the best results.

Some of the topics covered in this video:

  • The Premise book template from BookDesignTemplates.com
  • View modes in InDesign
  • Eliminating imported formatting in one click
  • Assigning new master pages
  • Inserting pages into your document
  • Placing a word processing file

We designed these templates for people who are not graphic artists. Those people already know InDesign.

We kept the templates simple and straightforward to help you format your books without having to learn a challenging new program from scratch.

When we get to the nonfiction books there will be plenty of powerful features in use. In the meantime, heres’ the 16:37 video, enjoy.

    InDesign is a page layout program. It is intended to be used for multi-page documents, such as books, magazines, and newspapers. It can also be used to create single page documents.

    Hi Joel,
    I presume you have to buy Indesign?, which is expensive in Australia
    Kind Regards,

    Templates are really nice! Does each one come with all the formatting, such as footnotes at the bottom of the page, and so on? Or, is the formatting only what is shown in the PDFs? Also, why not use the fonts you have written about as being so well designed? Thank you; I really enjoy your blog.

    Thank you for everything you do. You are a vital resource! The Alan Rinzler interview was superb.
