Instructions

Make sure your InDesign document is named LastName-FirstName-Group-Nº-Assignment-Name. So,

Appleseed-Johnny-#-Structured Text.indd

Check your font usage to only include Adobe Fonts. To do so, go Type > Find Fonts. There should only be Adobe Fonts in the list.

Check your image usage in the Links panel. Make sure there are no warning icons in the panel.

Once this is done, save your document, then package it using File > Package. The resulting folder will already be named properly. Zip-compress the folder by right-clicking on it, then choosing Compress....

Appleseed-Johnny-#-Structured Text.zip

Failure to submit your files as directed will incur a proportional loss of points. If your file/folder is not named with your name, you will earn a zero. Why?
