The above are just the tips and tutorials – but in the interest of bringing some process to the mix we’ll add some Alias Marking Menus to download. A few of tend to revise these every so often – especially when new features are added, but the core set of menus tend to stay the same.

There are a lot of subtle customizations in these menus. Of note is the Draft defaulting to a single surface draft when double-sided is toggled, but not having double-sided itself on by default. That was particularly fun to set-up. Enjoy and happy surfacing!
