Lori Luza presents to Austin Adobe User Group

Back by popular demand: InDesign Styles

In the spring of 2012, I presented InDesign Styles to the Austin Adobe User Group. It was a well-received program where the audience had many questions.

Alas, the recoding from that day mysteriously stopped half way through. Since the group leader, Donna, has had many requests to repeat that program, we’re going to do just that!

For those who were there, don’t despair. I’ve tweaked the program to benefit you, too. We’ll move a little more quickly through some of the more common information (paragraph & character styles), add in a bit on nested styles, and spend more time on creating Tables and Indicies.

Presentation: Friday, July 12th, 1:15pm, New Horizons Learning Center

Austin Adobe User Group meets on the second Friday of each month, 1:15 pm – 3:30 pm, at New Horizons Learning Center, 300 East Highland Mall Blvd, Suite 100, Austin, TX.

InDesign Presentation on April 13th

I have had a couple of questions about the InDesign presentation regarding the creation of about eBooks and accessible .pdf forms.

While I will try to touch on these requests as they relate to Styles, the majority of the presentation will focus on how/why to use Styles and how they work in InDesign.

So, let’s make a wish list! What InDesign topics would you like to see at a future presentation? Share your ideas in the comments below!

ASTD Austin

I was a member of the American Society for Training & Development (ASTD) when I lived in the Brazos Valley and found the group to have some good things to offer.

When we found out we’d be moving to Austin, I was excited by the opportunity to attend programs here. Larger cities—especially those with a full-size airport—almost always have an easier time getting good speakers.

Today, I attended my first meeting of this group and found that they met my hopes and expectations!

The topic for today was training and personality. While the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) was old information for me, it was a great refresher on content I had not considered in a while. It was also nice to see a training-presentation based on a real personality inventory/system rather than some of the “cute” ones that some trainers like to use. The cute ones can be more fun, but in my experience, they don’t offer much to improve the ability to work with others.

Most important of all, our speaker, Jeff Johannigman of People Type Consulting, made sure to apply our learning of the MBTI to the training environment, focusing on how to train people who are different than the instructor.

I attend as many professional development programs as I can. After all, you never know where you are going to meet your next boss or hear something that triggers a fabulous new idea. However, I did not realize how much I had missed hearing real professionals speak/present. While very few of the programs I’ve attended since moving to Austin had weak presenters, it was still quite refreshing to hear someone with such a talent for presentation.

Thank you, Jeff. I hope to hear you again and again.
