    Thanks Jeff.

    Very handy tip, especially with the bullets.

  • Great information! Can’t believe I’ve been working with InDesign for many years, and never took the time to explore these shortcuts.

    Thank you, Jeff, for suddenly making my life easier!

  • Thanks Kisan. Glad you liked it.

    Some of these tips are superb! Now here’s a question. I discovered a great tip whereby if I drag a graphic frame and press the up arrow it divides the frame into columns and the left arrow will divide into rows. Problem = If I have created a 2 page spread and set a page gutter value of for example of 20mm and I use this method InDesign assumes that I want the same gutter value between the rows and columns. How can I adjust this so that I can have a set gutter value dividing the page and a different gutter value dividing rows and columns?
