When you launch InDesign, the first screen that you see is the Home screen, which provides access to various in-app learning resources. These learning resources help you learn the fundamentals of InDesign and enable you to get started with your project. A project may include posters, flyers, brochures, magazines, newspapers, books, e-books, and more.
The contents of the Home screen are tailored based on your familiarity with InDesign and your Creative Cloud membership plan.
To refer to a wide range of step-by-step tutorials (with or without sample files), click the Learn tab. These tutorials will help you learn and understand the concepts, workflows, tips, and tricks.
You can refer to a tutorial even after you start working on a document. Click the following icons to navigate between the document and the Home screen.
Search for the topic across different Adobe support platforms and check the following tabs to view the results:
- Help: Shows the matching content for tutorials, Help articles, and community threads. You can click View in Help Center to open them in a web page.
- Stock: Shows the matching images, assets, and templates (.ps, .ai files) from Adobe Stock.
- Your Work: Lists your recent InDesign files (.indd, .idml, .indt) and the files available in the Creative Cloud files folder if their filename matches with the searched string.
Note: All these searches are performed on the name or the title of the collateral and not on the contents.
To help you create new documents quickly, a handy set of document presets is available in Home screen for popular workflows, such as business cards, brochures.
