The best source I've found about layout grids is Nigel French's video series, "Designing with Grids in InDesign" on Lynda.com.
I think you'll get a lot of ideas about how to set up a layout grid from the videos.
Even better, if you have or open a LinkedIn account, all Lynda.com videos are free this week!
Thanks for the reply. I tried to login through my linkedin account , it logs in and asks me to enter lynda username and pw , which I do not have and when I try signing up, it again takes me to select those plans and pay for it (the usual way). Where does the free come in ?
I don't know, I'm only passing along what was on the InDesignSecrets.com website. If you think you followed the instructions correctly in that posting, you'll need to contact LinkedIn customer support. I'm afraid I don't know.
