    How to use OpenType in InDesign

    Many InDesign users don’t use OpenType to its full potential, even though OpenType features can significantly improve the typographic quality of most designs. This Skillshare class is a complete guide to how to use OpenType in InDesign. I will explain in detail which OpenType features can be used in InDesign, what they do, where to find them and I will tell you in which situations you should use them. 

    This class can be useful to InDesign users of all experience levels.
