InDesign • How to Quickly Style a WHOLE Book • Interior Print Design Layout Process || PART ONE

This is a video for fellow graphic designers who are looking to speed up their book layout process. In this video duology, I am able to style (not design!) an entire book in about an hour.
I also answer some questions about InDesign features (& errors and how to bypass them.) Why does InDesign use the wrong style when I import and place a Word document? Why is my text always highlighted? How do I keep italic and bold formatting when importing to InDesign? How do I save all my book documents at once rather than saving them one at a time?
