Design professional-looking layouts for print and digital publishing using the advanced toolset that this Adobe-signed application deploys
What's new in Adobe InDesign CC 2021 Build 17.0:Inclusive terminology: To support core Adobe values of diversity and inclusion, the term Master page has been replaced with Parent page.
Adobe InDesign is one of the leading digital publishing applications on the market, offering users an extended set of tools for creating compelling print layouts and sophisticated online publications.
Designed to meet the requirements of both professional designers and beginners, the application comes with a flexible working environment and time-saving features, designed to help you improve productivity, while still maintaining control over typography and content quality.
From simple flyers, labels, brochures and presentations to certificates and ebooks, you can create it all with Adobe InDesign. Furthermore, it allows you to insert media content (audio, video, interactive HTMLs) into your documents, export them to Flash or build interactive PDFs.
The 'Alternate Layout' feature allows you to easily reconfigure the same InDesign file and repurpose layouts for different page dimensions and devices (for instance, iPads), thus you don't have to port your project manually. The 'Liquid Layout' option does even more: it applies user-defined layout rules in order to automatically adapt (scale, re-center etc.) the content when moving it to an alternate layout.
In order to help you automate your work, Adobe InDesign enables you to link assets, pages and documents together. Linked content allows you to make changes to multiple project sections simultaneously, thus saving you time.
Built-in drawing tools and effects, text composition and editing features (change styles, text wrap, OpenType support and more), grayscale preview option, easy access to recently used fonts, dynamic image resizing are other advantages that this application comes with.
The 'Split window' feature allows you to compare layouts, while the 'Content Collector' acts similar to a clipboard, enabling you to collect assets from any document and reuse them in other layouts. Additionally, it seamlessly integrates with other Adobe software solutions (Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, Flash).
Adobe InDesign is bundled with advanced features that make it the go-to application for professional print and production art. It provides a versatile publishing platform that can be used for publishing consistent content across web and mobile devices.
