Work Environment of Adobe InDesign

This is the most basic post in this tutorial, in which I will discuss the facilities and tools contained in Adobe InDesign. Oh, yes! Before I go on, I would like to state, in this tutorial, I use Adobe Indesign CS5 as a reference, for you who use other CSs, basically the facilities and tools are the same (please adjust).

In InDesign, there are at least 5 main work environments, they are:

1. Worksheet (black box)
2. Tool Box (blue box)
3. Toolbar (green box)
4. Menu Bar (red box)
5. Panel Bar (yellow box)
