Your Cheatin’ Ways

The fine people at Wells & Drew have generously published these awesome, free “shortcut cheat sheets” for the users of Adobe Illustrator and Indesign:

Click on them to go to their website and get versions in various resolutions or in PDF form. Nice that they have both Windows and Mac versions listed. No real instruction here, just a very handy list of shortcuts.

I wish I’d had that Indesign one when I was designing the book. I basically went from 0 to 100 mph in knowledge of Indesign, thanks to some initial tutoring by my pal, illustrator James Hungaski and another friend of a friend, plus copious amounts of Googling “how do I…?” when I got stuck.

Not sure if they plan a PhotoShop version (probably not as they are mainly designers), but that would be awesome.

  2. Thanks for sharing this! Yes, there will be a Photoshop version made from Wells and Drew (it’s in the works) and you will be the first to know about it!
