I’m taking on InDesign, mostly so I can work more effectively with designers and the rest of the production team (i.e., be less annoying for them). Part of that plan is learning to use InCopy, which I hope publishers will see as a real benefit to their workflow.
Today, in my How To column at Copyediting.com, I guide you through some steps in dreaming up what you should learn this year.
Mentioned in this post:
- Copyediting’s survey in the summer of 2015 (Dec/Jan 2016 issue)
- upgrading is also an effective way to increase your pay
- What is “the next big thing” in publishing?
