    Resources for increasing InDesign productivity

    I am wrapping up streetscape design guidelines in InDesign. The software isn't that complicated to use. I rely heavily on keyboard shortcuts when I juggle between Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Word, and CAD. I am always looking for new and different ways to cut down on production costs, so if anyone has any resources for shortcuts/methods to increase productivity on InDesign I greatly appreciate it (especially working with placed files).

    Thanks-

    Perhaps you've already wrapped up your project. If that's the case, use this advice for the next one.

    I learned InDesign from lynda.com.

    It's an awesome site and I recommend it to everyone that will listen.

    You can preview a few videos to get an idea of each course.

    Also, it's quite affordable.

    Cheers.
