After you have your document set up, you're ready to dig into InDesign in earnest. The program has an almost mind-boggling number of controls that you can use in the document creation process. The next step is learning how to use them.

In the next three chapters, you take a look at creating and working with various types of page elements. This chapter gives an overview of creating and modifying all types of objects. In Chapter 27, "Working with Type in InDesign," you explore text specifically, and then in Chapter 28, "Working with Graphics in InDesign," you look at various types of graphics.
