Edited by Freya, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to arrange documents in Adobe InDesign CS6 in Windows 7.
To begin, you should open Adobe InDesign either from your desktop or by clicking the Windows icon in the bottom-left corner.
Clicking the Windows icon will bring up a list of your recently used programs.
Click "Adobe InDesign CS6" if you see it on the list.
InDesign has a pink-and-purple icon with the letters "ID" on it.
Otherwise, click the search bar at the bottom of the screen and manually type "Adobe InDesign".
Click "Adobe InDesign CS6" to open it.
A dialogue box will appear every time you open InDesign.
Click "File" on the bar on the top-left of the window.
Hover the cursor over "New".
Alternatively, click "Open..." to open a document.
You will create a new document. You can also do this with the shortcut "Ctrl" + "N". If you prefer, you can open an existing document from the dialogue box or the "File" menu as well.
There are other VisiHow tutorials on how to create and open documents.
Press "Ctrl" + "N" and click "OK" four times.
This will create four extra documents. First, note that the default setting for your documents will have each document as a separate tab at the top of the documents window.
Next, click the drop-down menu for the "Arrange Documents" icon.
It looks like a newspaper. The icon is at the top in the center of the window. Clicking this icon will open a menu showing different layouts that you can display your documents.
Click an option to see the one that suits you best.
More simplistic styles might be preferred to be able to focus on one document at a time. The layouts are good visualization tools. Each window has its own page number in the bottom-left corner. There are rulers around the edges. The active window has a white ruler.
You can click Windows to focus on them.
