Episode 40: Object Layer Options (VIDEO)

It’s time to get back to the original mission of the videocast — real-world examples of InDesign in action to help you work better, smarter and faster. In this episode, I take a look at a feature that debuted in CS2: Object Layer Options. Not only does InDesign understand the native Photoshop format, it also understands Photoshop’s layers and Layer Comps. Using one layered image from the opening spread of a magazine feature, I turn its layers into separate backgrounds, headers and pieces of spot art throughout the rest of the layout.

  1. There is a way to turn off the visibility of all layers without having to click on every eye icon. simply CTRL + Click on the eye icon on the layer you want the visibility off.

  2. sorry, ctrl+alt click.
