Hold Shift to export PDFs faster from InDesign

Here’s a neat trick I learned about when watching some courses on InDesign from David Blatner on Lynda.com:

If you’ve ever used InDesign to export PDFs to send to a coworker or client, perhaps you’ve used the PDF presents available in the main menu under File > Adobe PDF Presets. Click one of the presets and after selecting a filename, you’ll see a dialog box with a bunch of options. 95% of the time, I never change these options, so seeing them and going through another step to export the file takes a bit of time.

Shift to shave

Just hold the Shift key when you click one of the Adobe PDF presets. You’ll still see a dialog box to choose a file name, but you won’t see the PDF settings dialog which will save you a bit of time. Thanks David!
