    very nice technical skills and aesthetic sensibilities,
    I know this is specific to INDESIGN,
    particularly student and competition presentations

    but I would recommend all architects / students consider POWERPOINT as a serious alternative

    it is almost as graphically powerful [ you will be surprised ]
    it is significantly cheaper [essentially free as it is embedded in MS Office suite]
    It is widely available to all the team and project stakeholders (architects, engineers, clients, marketing, finance etc )
    it is the format of 99% of architectural presentation [eg client presentations]
    it is generalist software so nearly everyone has a basic skill set in using it.
    it is collaborative… work in progress can be shared in real time
    it is not dead end effort – PowerPoint files can easily evolve, adapt to other stakeholder needs,, eg marketing, financial proposals etc
    it is file size efficient..

    and yes you can set up grids, large paper formats etc , master template, shadows, linked images, url hotlinks… masking… multiple column text…

    I banned INDESIGN from the architectural offices I managed….. it was an expensive data dead end

    Now, don't get me wrong I am certainly no MS fanboy… quite the opposite…

    but am very much a fan of collaborative work and open data exchange

    Man, I'm very ple ased yo u displayed this video on shad ing the sky. I adopted your trusty old recommendations and as a consequence had the time get rem arkably close to the way in which I wanted. i worked on it for 3 or more hours so it was impressive! However I stumbled onto this wild glitch that I couldn't solve. I a dditionally struggled rei nsta lling the applications and then practically nothing. I ended up seeking ano ther version of the software packages at youtube comwatch?v=ToJB6JOXS5U , and functioned past the glitch! Maybe the install file I received was corrupte d. I do not know how to look at that? Anyway, thanks to your trusty training video, I am just conseque ntly near getting this revising down, that it'll appear like it is pouring once I am just done! Who needs a college class for photoshop, when individuals can get your trusty old videos to demonstrate these individuals, no cost on youtube! Thanks once a gain OP! I will have to submit my results after i suppose I've got the heavy rain e nhancing effect down pat! Wei Dang, logging out.
