In podcast 235, we asked listeners to email us locations in InDesign where the command "Place" appears, other than File > Place. We were looking for Library panel menu, right-click menu on images in CC Library, and the obscure button lower right on the Media panel, Place Video or Audio file. Only one person submitted an answer, and none of these were included in her email. But she wins an InDesignSecrets Keyboard Shortcut poster anyway!
