Layout design and publishing program

Adobe InDesign CC is an editing and publishing software. Indesign is used to design layouts that contain texts, images, and drawings. It is used by graphic designers, artists, publishers, and marketers to create print and digital media. You can use it to create both offline and online communication tools such as flyers, posters, newsletters, infographics, etc.


InDesign has six elements: Application frame, Application bar, Panels, Tools panel, Control panel, and Document window. These allow you to create and edit documents and files on InDesign. Only the application bar will vary per operating system. Windows users will immediately see the application bar when they launch InDesign. Mac users will have to turn off the application frame to see the application bar. 

When you launch InDesign, it will ask you to ‘start’ or open a workspace. It will give you an option to create a new document or open an existing file. If you choose to create a new document, you can choose from the built-in templates and presets. Included in these layouts are Adobe’s native assets as well. 


File configuration 

Adobe Asset Link allows you to directly link assets from Adobe Experience Manager on to your InDesign document. The assets will be presented to you in a gallery view with large preview thumbnails. You can organize the assets by relevance. This function also allows you to import low-resolution images. These will be replaced by its original, high-resolution version once you are ready to render the file. 

You can also import Scalable Vector Graphics in InDesign documents. These include both SVG and SVGZ format files. The resulting file will be compact. But, it will provide high-quality graphics for digital and print designs. This function is essential if your source material is stored in readable text files

Industry-standard design tool 

Adobe InDesign CC is typically used by professional designers and advanced users as it offers a lot of tools. It has allowed them to create different outputs for digital and online media. Its workspace has bundled its tools to only six elements. So, beginners can jump into InDesign without prior experience. Just take note of the changes in the controls and layout when switching between connected applications. 

Its built-in templates can be used to familiarise yourself with the different elements and tools. This feature will also shorten your production time as the layout only needs to be edited. You can enhance your work by importing vectors and images. If you opt to import files from the Adobe Experience Manager, your files will be imported faster than you would with raw files.
