Help Working with InDesign Templates


We’ve put together a collection of helpful tips to make editing our InDesign Templates super easy. If you’re a newbie to Adobe InDesign it’s worth checking these out before starting work on your design.

How to Open an InDesign Template
Step 1. Download the file.

Step 2. Our InDesign templates are packaged and saved as ZIP files. If you have a Windows computer Right Click > Extract All before opening the InDesign file.

Step 3. If you’re running InDesign CC open the INDD version of the file. If you’re working with InDesign CS4, CS5 or CS6 open the IDML version.

How to Hide the ‘Switch Off Before Printing’ Layer
Our InDesign templates are organized into layers, which group similar elements together. The layers in your document can be controlled from the Layers panel (Window > Layers).

Make sure to hide the SWITCH OFF BEFORE PRINTING layer when you export your design for printing. Click on the eye symbol to the left of the layer’s name to do so.

Pro tip: Try locking the YOUR IMAGES HERE layer to save time when editing text. This will prevent you from accidentally moving the graphics out of position.

How to Change the Colors
The color scheme of this template can be edited from the Swatches panel (Window > Color > Swatches).

Pro tip: Editing a swatch will automatically update all instances of that color across your document.

How to Add Your Own Text
The text across this design can easily replaced with your own copy. Simple use the Type Tool (T) to select the text box you wish to edit. You can then add your own fonts and formatting.

How to Add Your Own Images
You’ll notice when you first open the template that all the image frames have a placeholder image. You can insert your own images by selecting the image frame and using File > Place to select a replacement image. Read our beginner’s guide to working with images in InDesign.

Pro tip: Do your images look blurry? Make sure your display is set to high-quality (View > Display Performance > High-Quality Display). To see more accurately how your design will appear when printed go to View > Overprint Preview.

How to Resize Pages in InDesign
It’s simple to resize a page in your template by using the Page Tool (Shift+P). Select the tool and then click onto the page to select it. You can drag the sides of the page to preview your desired new size. Hold down Alt or Option while you drag to resize the page.

How to Export Your Document for Printing

To create a print-ready file, choose Adobe PDF (Print) from the Format drop-down menu in the Export window. Make sure to include the bleed in your export options by checking Use Document Bleed Settings in the Export Adobe PDF window.

How to Change the Fonts in a Document
You can format individual items of text using the Type Tool (T) and Controls panel, which you’ll find running along the top of the InDesign workspace. The fonts in most templates are not set as InDesign styles. However, it’s easy to create a Character or Paragraph Style using existing text formatting, and then edit this from the Styles panels (Window > Styles).
