As time goes on, I tend to burn out and lose focus. How can I help this?
The Promodo study method prevents burn-outs. The Promodo study method involves setting a timer for a longer period of time (ie 25 minutes) for studying and a timer for a shorter period of time (ie 5 minutes). This short break will allow your brain to relax briefly and improve focus when you are studying for long periods of time.

Can you explain what makes a textile high-performance?
A textile is typically categorized as high-performance based on durability. The most common test for durability is known as the Wyzenbeek method. During this test a machine rubs an abrasive texture on the fabric twice, counting as one double rub (DR). Typically, a vendor qualifies a high-performance textile at 30,000 DR. However, in a commercial setting, high-traffic areas must have a durability of 75,000 - 100,000+ DR.
Why are my pictures not displaying?
An image may not display for multiple reasons. A common reason is a missing link. In the Essential Classics Tool kit, you are able to relink the images on the right-hand side where the properties toolbar is located. There is a link image; you can select that tab and "Links: to view your links. You can then right-click the missing image and select "Re-link," allowing InDesign to take the image from the file you link. To avoid this issue again you can right-click on the image again and select "Embed Link."
