Good design is built on this internal tension and the balance of opposites. Each of these “text breaker” features would usually act as entry points, enticing the reader to start reading. Often no thought at all is given to this, which is why many beginners find that they have actually designed their masterpiece to the software’s default of US Turorial

The reader probably wouldn’t consciously notice if they didn’t – so long as the bottom of the columns lined up – but subliminally the design is tighter and has greater internal logic if they do. This means ensuring that the combination of each heading’s leading and its above and below spacing adds up to a multiple of the point body leading.

The formatting of our body copy is almost complete with only the indents tugorial alignment to be decided. The amount of space an image will take up depends largely on its orientation, for example, so if we have a choice of portrait and landscape this gives huge flexibility.

This has to be done while still ensuring that the following paragraphs fall back onto the interline grid. Fourth the graphics are introduced, sized and positioned. The same cover image is used again on the main spread’s centre panel, but simply repeating the photo would be a wasted opportunity.

Eventually, using all the tricks available – and compromises where necessary – a working layout is achieved.

Equally, if there were any last minute changes there’s absolutely no scope for correction, we’d have to recreate the file from scratch. Full-colour is also out of the question, and in any case many of the supplied photos hutorial black and white, so we’ll have to try and maximize the impact of two colours.

If we have the odd line or two too much, we still have a number of options. OK, we know what we’re supposed to do, so how pagemqker we go about it?


The typewriter approach would not only be far cheaper to produce, but also far quicker. Even better, by straightening the building and rotating the surrounding image, the photo is given a new internal tension and intriguing logic of its own. This is also now developed by Adobe and, with features like conditional printing and in-built drawing tools, it is particularly well suited to the production of technical work. Of course full colour opens up the full armoury, but there’s still a lot we can do within our two-colour budget.

Tom Arah July This can be broken down into three stages: It has support for plugins and runs on both Mac and Windows. However it was generally felt that the first PC implementation – version 3.

Finally it produces attractive and practical tints. For more major problems, more extreme measures must be taken. Looking at the text to see if we can add impact is less fruitful. For single word category headings, however, this shouldn’t be too much of a problem. The layout is now complete, so the next stage is to prepare it for commercial print. PageMaker was first originally developed by Aldus and was later acquired by Adobe in the 90s.

Its other main strength is that, as the original and current market leader, it is well supported by outputting bureaux and commercial printers. One of the most obvious ways to do this is by using upper case, but this is generally frowned upon because it interferes with the recognition of word shape that is the basis of easy reading. The process demands more intervention, but allows more control. To set up the grid we have to set up the margins and columns.

It will also allow us to add variety and to highlight information by using left-aligned bullet points and dates. With PageMaker, colour pwgemaker are created by selecting the Print dialog’s Colour command, selecting Separation and choosing from tutprial colours found in the publication – in our case Black and Pantone It also offers enough contrast to enable white dropped out from it – as in the bars on the top of each spread – to effectively act as another colour.

The result has been a lack of direction, a lot of uncertainty and a haemorrhaging of its previously loyal supporters. In fact it’s often worth shrinking your body copy’s point-size to gain space to add to margins, but that’s a luxury we’re not able to afford. PageMaker is one of the most popular DTP software even today but its development has been stopped after version 7 although it is still being marketed to a select pagemakdr of users.


A0 is exactly twice the size of A1, which is twice the size of A2 and so on. Instead new life can be breathed into the image by, for example, cropping in hard to the image’s centre of interest, the building. Their tutodial difference and significance has to be identified which is most easily done by increasing their point-size, emboldening, and centring.

In the meantime we will be happy if we can get them all to fit on the page! The amount of pagemaer to get over in the programme is far higher and so we must turn to the dedicated text-handling skills of a DTP program.

Graphics Handling With the grid set up and text formatting established, we’re now ready to complete the layout by bringing in the graphics.

Get the right software. Finally, when the design is complete, the separated output is proofed prior to sending out to commercial print. Good design accommodates this apparent paradox by playing off one element against another: DTP software comes in all shapes and sizes.

If the image adds nothing, drop it. This has huge advantages in terms of conserving paper and so in keeping costs down. To get the text to then flow around the figure, new points can be added and repositioned on the text-wrap boundary by clicking and then dragging with the select tool. A pull-out quote, for example, can draw the eye to an article, but equally it can distract and disrupt the reading flow and so potentially lose readers.

In both cases though you should bear in mind that black and white offers the most contrast and so the easiest read – in other words avoid lime green on fluorescent yellow. Other users, looking for a combination of design-intensive features with strong frame-based control have turned to Quark XPress.

The publication is a programme of upcoming, mainly arts-based events organised by the French Institute in Edinburgh.
