June 19 at 9am EST
(previously scheduled for June 12).

We'll create a sample document in Adobe® InDesign® CS5 in about 45 minutes, offering tips on all aspects of document creation along the way. Check out the list of some of the things you'll learn at the left.

We're confident that the free webinar will be useful to you. We recognize that you are spending valuable time with us. You will get a benefit from the class.

Why Version CS5?
We wanted to teach a version that will provide the widest range of our customers' common experience. While it's true that CS6 was recently released, few people have taken the step of upgrading yet. Some of you upgraded to CS5.5 when it came out, but it's similar enough to CS5 at the level we're teaching that we won't be skipping any exciting new features. Some of you are still on CS4 or even CS3. What we teach will be transferable to these lower versions, as well. The screen and menu options may look a bit different, but the command structure is very similar.

Your Questions Answered
We'll be taking questions from participants throughout the webinar, so if you have questions about how to set up a document in InDesign, this could be your lucky day. We'll be shooting to end our instruction at 10:15am, so detailed questions may be deferred, but we'll answer as many as we can as we go along.

End Time is Flexible - For You and for Us!
Of course you can leave the webinar at any time, but we promise to wrap up the formal webinar about 10:15am. We will, however, remain available to answer questions, give advice, etc., for about another half hour.

Registration closes Thursday, June 14.
