In this InDesign CS6 tutorial, we will learn about a powerful new feature set added to InDesign CS6 that will allow us to create layouts that can be easily flexed to fit virtually any shape or size. We'll get started by learning about liquid layout and the rules that govern it in InDesign CS6. Not only will we go over each rule in depth but we'll also learn about instances where one rule may be better than the others. From here we'll learn how we can create alternate versions of the same layout, all within the same InDesign file. To wrap this course up, we will take everything we've learned and apply it to a vertical iPad layout, converting it into two different alternate layouts. After completing this tutorial, not only will you be familiar with this powerful new feature set but you will also learn how it can save you time when working on a layout that is needed in multiple shape and sizes.
