What’s the easiest way to navigate long documents? You can use the Pages panel, but in layouts with more than 20 or so spreads, you’re doing a lot of scrolling. The Go to Page command isn’t much of a shortcut, either. In this week’s free InDesign Secrets video, Anne-Marie Concepción offers not one but three unexpected alternatives.

The first? Use InDesign’s bookmarks. It’s not what the feature was designed for (creating links in a PDF export), but once you create them and open the Bookmarks panel, you have a creative way to zip around your document.

Watch the video below to learn how to create bookmarks and—even better—build them automatically with a “fake” table of contents. Plus learn two more ways to navigate your long documents, with articles and page labels.
