This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

InDesign Designer/Layout needed!
« on: July 13, 2019, 05:30:15 AM »
Hello there!

I finished an RPG supplement kickstarter a few months ago (see here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/omswaoperations/beings-from-beyond-demons-devils-and-angels-for-5t?ref=nav_search&result=project&term=beings from beyond#). I thought I'd completed editing/formatting the document, but unfortunately I've recently found out that I may need to reformat/re-edit it in InDesign. However I'm having trouble learning how to use it. I don't want to keep my backers waiting, so I'm looking to hire someone to translate the formatting/layout that I've set up in word (circa 190 pages, A4) into InDesign.

If you're available soon and can give me a hand, please drop me a message.

If you are going through Drivethru, not sure it necessarily needs to be In-Design. What program did you use?

If you know what you are looking for in terms of art, design, etc. I can do it. Though I changed careers about 4 years ago, I spent 25+ years as a graphics designer and prepress tech.

Thanks for your responses. I've got someone else working on the project now, so I don't need other help.

Wrt the programme needed for DTRPG, you don't have to use InDesign. However I initially designed the document in word, and apparently that tends to result in a bunch of "artefacts" in the PDF generated that create problems in DTRPGs printing process. Basically they've advised me to re-edit it in Indesign
