Turn off your iPad. It is not to be used (in any way) in this classroom, either for academic or recreational use (unless approved by the instructor). Ignoring this will result in detention and further disciplinary action (Gross Misconduct/Refusal to comply). Did you remember to put your assignments in a folder? Did you label the folder after the assignment title? Did you save your file in the appropriate manner? If not: NO GRADE! Check your PowerSchool frequently. It's your RESPONSIBILITY!


Adobe InDesign Continued - Due 3/29 (end of the period)

Part 5: Exporting Your Document

Once your InDesign project is completed, it is time to distribute it to others. Unfortunately, unless your viewers own a license to run Adobe InDesign (usually around $499 – as part of an Adobe CC suite - per year with a subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud), they will not be able to view your wonderful creations. So, in order to get around that, we “export” our documents to a format that they can readily view. In this instance, the most logical and likely application is Adobe Acrobat Reader (or, as most people refer to it as: Acrobat).

  1.        Go to File
  2.        Choose “Export” (Remember, we are not saving. Saving only allows those with InDesign to view and edit our document).
  3.        In the dialogue box, provide an appropriate name.
  4.        In the drop-down menu, select “Adobe PDF (Interactive).
    Now, I know we started this document off as a Print version. But, I’m curious to see whether it will still be visible on the iPad (or other tablets) regardless of the document format we chose.
  5.        Click the “Save Button” (make sure you’re saving this to the appropriate folder.
  6.        Locate the exported PDF in Windows Explorer.
  7.        Send this PDF to your iPad (email it, drop box it, or whatever it takes).
  8.        Open document and view. Does it display properly? Why or Why not?
