2 Usable “Easter Eggs” in InDesign
In computer parlance, an “Easter Egg” is a goodie hidden away in software. Usually, Easter Eggs aren't very practical, but the designers of Adobe InDesign have two useful ones in InDesign CS and InDesign CS2.
Open the “Stroke” window (or activate the “Stroke” palette). Click the little arrow in the upper left corner and choose “Stroke Styles.” Choose “New” in the window that opens. Type “Feet” (without the quotation marks) in the “Name” window. Click “Add” then “Done.”
Go through the same procedure and name the new stroke style “Lights.”
We won't tell you exactly what you'll get … but we will tell you that you'll have fun additions to your InDesign strokes. You'll see them in the Stroke palette's “Type” drop-down menu.
