Lesson Info

Mastering Your Fonts In Adobe InDesign CC

Okay, things you didn't know about your font menu. I'm gonna grab the type tool, drag out of type box, paste some stuff in. I can't see it because I've got my preview on, switch it back to normal. Okay, I'll hit the w key. I'm gonna make this a little bigger so we can all see it using one of the shortcuts, I use all the time. It's select all the text and hold down command shift and then the greater than key or the full stop period key. The comic key next to it goes down and that goes up. If you're on a pc that is control shift and use those same two keys. Great. So I got my text actually going to select it with the whole box. I'm gonna go back to my type tool and at the top here I'm gonna drop this down. There's been some additions to and design that people haven't noticed and one of my favorites is let's say I pick lust for this and I go back in there, see this little wavy line there somehow, magically. If I click on this in design will cut down the fonts on your machine are the ones ...

you have installed and try and find ones that are very similar. You can see pretty amazing. Like it's picked the other last ones, but it's also picked, ones that you can see here, Karena Pro very similar. Okay, um it's just really handy if you're like, oh, I like this farm but I wish I had something similar but different. Okay, you gotta make sure you turn it off again. Otherwise your font list is pretty small. Another thing to help speed up is that let's say you're working at a company and use the same phones over and over again. Okay, instead having to scroll through all your list to find them all, you can have this little star system. So let's say that I use Roboto a lot and Roboto slab. Where are you? Roboto slab? And I've been using lust and let's say I need Helvetica as well. So down here somewhere Helvetica, where are you buddy? And there it is there and turn the star on. What's really nice about once you start them, is that say you're working on your document, let's say now. Okay, I can go back into my front menu and I can just turn on this option here and it just has my stars. So instead of having that ginormous list, I can click on here and just go to my tie to and say actually I just want one of these guys. Okay, you can pick from the dropdown list as well. Okay, to pick my thin option. So super handy. But remember you can turn it off. Otherwise your front list will forever be just these five. Another option. I don't use very much. You can show just the type kit ones, ones that have been downloaded from type kit often this will kind of indicate the ones that are a bit more special because you've spent some time downloading them can be useful, but the super useful one is this filter now for me. I keep meaning every time I get a new Macbook Pro, I'm like, okay, this time I'm going to go through and put all my fonts into some sort of like groups, handwriting display, slab serif, all that sort of stuff never happens. But now end designers added magic in this filter here, you can go through and somehow for the fonts on your machine, it went through and went, let's look at the script fonts and I put them all in one big group. I don't know how it did it, but it's magic. Okay. Same thing at the top here. Got my slab serif salt together. All my handwritten fonts just needs to be one for, I feel like I've got a lot of fonts that are like animals shaped like letters or cactuses or christmas decorations. It's decorative but it has none of my cactus Once. Let's go back to handwritten fonts and I want this one to be, I'm going to use a felt marker actually. I really don't like felt marker. I'm going to use market ot cool. Just like the rest of them. You've got to turn them on. Otherwise you'll be stuck with this list. Sorry, turn it off. Go back to all classes and we're back to our full list. Alright. I hope you found something awesome in that little font dropdown list. I know I use it lots. Especially favorites. Let's get on to the next bit of font greatness.
