    I know apps has specific role like, Illustrator for Logo…. InDesign for Magazine, Brochure….. Photoshop for Photo Edit…. but my 5 years experience as graphic designer the only apps I only use is Photoshop. I feel like photoshop can do anything what Illustrator and Indesign can do….. this is just me. but what are your opinion guys?

    Great starter list Dansky. I use InDesign every day and you may want to add these important hot keys to help you become more efficient at InDesign.

    – Quick select placed assets in a container : SHIFT + ESC keys and reverse to return to the container..I dont like the asset target finder.

    – Build multiple master pages and apply the liquid feature and your designs will become responsive saves hours of work.

    – This hotkey is almost never used but everyone should use it. I noticed you kept moving your cursor to the inspector. Save your energy and use OPT+CMD+ #6 key combo. You will need to use this key combo twice because it hides it and you make it reappear again but the beauty of this combo. The first field is highlighted to move forward use SPACEBAR or TAB+SHIFT to go back to previous previous field. You can even select the anchor-point box and change the focus with the number-key pad…1 : TL, 2 : TM, 3 : TR….you fet the point.

    – You can use two measurements with the ruler. I like to set TOP Ruler to inches and LEFT Ruler to points. Now all my vertical text flow can be set to an 8-point system.

    – This is a must for all users. In the inspector panel go to the dropdown option and deselect size to stroke. If you ever create a mechanical it will always be the wrong size. I learned this the hard way

    – InDesign most powerful feature the pages are actually independent art boards.

    – You can copy and paste-in-place into a row of containers that equal same size. Now, you can sections perfectly aligned.

    – Preflight is InDesign personal assistant. OPT+COMD+F. This little tool will tell you if you have missing images, color conflict, if a body of text is cut-off and much more. If you are working on a 300page doc this little guy is a life-saver.

    I know InDesign can be scary but once you peel away the layers you will never work on a project without it. I can create Javascript api to control the snap-distance of a layout without going into a preference setting.

    I love your videos keep them coming. If possible can you create a full web-build using SketchApp. Learning now and I just love the power of nested objects.
