Ok. Does anyone use InDesign's layers to put all black text on one layer, and at the top of the pile, as a 'best practice'? It's something a publisher I freelance for does, but I've never encountered it elsewhere. It's a pain to do and I'm not convinced it has any value (feel free to contradict me here!). Supposedly it helps with various pre-press issues, don't ask me which. My not-very-exhaustive research points to the layers being intended for use in the same way as Illustrator eg to separate elements to make things easier if it's useful, not as a pre-press thing. Any opinions?
