The next section moves on to outline the quickest ways to navigate software, desktops, and scripts and plugins, all of which will save about a minute each.

The final section of this book provides a range of best-practice advice such as setting up style-sheets, files, and print presets, all of which can save designers hours, if not days otherwise spent cleaning up files before they go to print.
