If you’re like me, when you see the new Welcome screen in InDesign CS3, you’ll immediately head for the “Don’t show again”checkbox. Not so fast! When I took a better look at what is included in this screen, I decided to keep it available for a while. No matter how you’re using InDesign, this screen offers access to a lot of valuable information and shortcuts. My favorite part is the “Open a Recent Item”section, which is the fastest way to find and open documents that you recently worked on (even if it was in CS2). You can also create new Documents, Books, and Libraries, and have access to a vast collection of Templates in Bridge. It’s also a great portal into the InDesign community with one-click access to InDesign Exchange, InDesign User Groups, as well as InDesign Partners for training, printing, plugins, and solutions. Plus there’s more, but this is only supposed to be a short tip.
