contact usEnquire about this course


The Adobe InDesign Advanced course is aimed at those who are comfortable with the basics of using InDesign, and want to look at some of the more advanced functionality available in InDesign. The course is ideally suited to those who have attended the InDesign Getting Started course, or are already comfortable with most of the topics covered within it.


During this course you will learn how to work with more advanced styling such as nested styles, next style and object styles, you will learn to apply automated page numbering, use the liquify and alternate layout functions and lots more. You will work with interactive features and learn how to create pdf forms from within InDesign all ready for output, not to mention add hyperlinks, page transitions and other interactive features. We will teach you how to make use of snippets and libraries to reuse content saving a lot of time, and if you are working with external data from excel or other database sources, we will teach you how to generate a fully formatted indesign document directly from the data file.

Suitable For

If you have no idea how to place text or images on an InDesign page, or have never heard of character and paragraph styles, you should take a look at the InDesign Getting Started course. If however you are comfortable with this kind of thing and are looking to move on to the next level, this is the right course. We don't expect you to be an InDesign expert, and this course is ideal for those who are at an intermediate level and want to move beyond the basics of InDesign.


You will have already either attended the InDesign Getting Started course or have equivalent experience, and will be reasonably comfortable creating a new document, placing frames and content on the page, applying basic formatting, and moving and positioning content.
