So I got a job doing production for a meal subscription startup. I'm kow how to use Illustrator and Photoshop, but we do more work in Indesign. It's not too difficult to get the hang of, but was wondering if you or anyone else would be willing to do a tutorial series on the basic things to understand and know about illustrator.

Thanks!

    I'll assume this is directed at me - what specifically do you want to know about indesign? If you're good inside Illustrator you'll find a lot of things are very similar inside InDesign. For example what sort of project do you typically find yourself doing?

    thanks for the reply, for the most part the projects involve making new recipe cards from a template so the photographer will shoot and send my the images, the chef will send me the copy.

    But on the template we have text boxes that sometimes lock up, so you can't change or add text to it. not sure if that makes sense.

    Umm sort of simple reply here, but why not just delete the old text box and draw a new one?

    It might just be that the text boxes are on your master pages, and you can unlock them by holding ctrl+shift and clicking any locked item. That, or go to object > unlock all on spread.
