Chapter 6. Working with Objects and Layers > Using Live Screen Drawing

Using Live Screen Drawing

In previous versions of InDesign, you needed to pause before dragging to see the content as you draw. Now, you can see the content drawn as you drag without the pause using Live Screen Drawing (New!). In the Interface preferences dialog box, you can can select the Live Screen Drawing option you want. If you prefer the old way, then you can select the Delayed option. If you want to see content as you draw, then select the Immediate option. If you don’t want either, then select Never.

Set Live Screen Drawing Options

Click the Edit (Win) or InDesign (Mac) menu, point to Preferences, and then click Interface.

Click the Live Screen Drawing list arrow, and then select any of the following:

  • Never. Select to never show content as you draw.

  • Immediate. Select to show content immediately as you draw.

  • Delayed. Select to pause before you show content as you draw (like the behavior in InDesign CS4).

Click OK.
