I am still new to InDesign, and I am revising a software manual to make it look better. It will be viewed on screen as a pdf, and I have a few questions about design.
1. I want to have spiral notebook rings on the left margin of each page. I do not want lined paper, just the rings. How do I do this? I have the entire Creative Suite if I need to use a different program.
2. How do I put a watermark on the page?
3. How do I create a symbol or icon to put at the top of each page? I'm thinking that I want a four-leaf clover or a star on each page, and include the page number in each one. Please tell me how to do this, and if I need to use a different software in the Creative Suite.
Thanks for your help!
I would create the rings effect in Illustrator and place it into your InDesign document. Here's one tutorial I found:
Watermark: Just set your watermark image to a light grey set its trasparancy to Multiply
Page number: Put your image on the master pages, and add the auto page number there. It will show a letter on the master page, but change to the correct page number on yoru document pages.
