Converting Text to Tables in InDesign CS4

When you work with some imported table contents in InDesign, like from MS Word document, HTML page etc., the text are usually in a tab-delimited format, there are is no need to retype this text into a new table, you can easily convert it into a table, and here is how:

Step 1, create a textframe and import the text into it.

Step 2, click “Type > Show Hidden Characters” to determine how the text is currently separated. Usually, you will see tabs between “columns” of information and paragraph returns between “rows” of information. Also, check to see that all the columns have the same amount of tabs between them; it doesn’t matter if the tabs don’t line up and the text looks messy. All that matters is consistency in the characters used.

How to turn a colored PDF into black & white

Very often, after I created an CMYK or RGB advert from InDesign, I need to convert it into a black and white version because of client’s request. unfortunately, Adobe’s InDesign, currently CS4, still does not have any export functionality to save PDF files in grayscale version.

Here is another way to do it, very easy: firstly, open your PDF file which is need to be grayscaled in Adobe Acrobat Pro, then, go to Advanced -> Print Production -> Preflight, on the “Preflight” pop-up window, under “Profiles” tab, click “PDF fixups” menu and chose “Convert to grayscale”, then click “Analyze and fix”, all done, save your black & white version now.
