I finished up my little thing today in InDesign.  I didn't reopen it in Quark yet.  I think InDesign has a huge advantage with alignment.  It has snap center and edge lines.  You can drag boxes around and they will pause when centered or side aligned with other boxes.  This is mighty nifty.  I assume Quark has that somewhere as well, but since it wasn't turned on lining things up was a nightmare.

You can also fill boxes with whatever you want.  They aren't automatically set to text or image.  You can change it around without having to reset the box.  I didn't fiddle with running text around irregular images or anything but boxes yet.  I haven't found an easy to clean up photo yet.  I really miss shutter stock and being able to just download an already masked and clean image of exactly what I want.

I eventually caved and started making master pages and styles.  I'm not good at that until I have more of a basic outline in place.  Of course by the time I have an outline I have enough content that styling gets messy.  It mostly worked, though I'm having issues staying attached to the master pages for some reason.  I expect there is some box I'm not ticking off.

I was lazy on my blog this week and missed two days.  I've been stuck inside due to the 3 feet or so of crusty snow we have.  I could be hiking, but I don't really want to.  When the snow is this deep you only really see birds, and most of them are on feeders.  That leaves photos of my critters to post, and there are only so many of those I do in a week.
