Adobe InDesign CS4 is the page layout application of choice for many users. It contains a host of advanced text, colour, print and layout features not found in any other application that can be applied to text and objects. It also boasts an interface similar to Adobe’s other leading design applications and so is intuitive for users of these applications. Further, Adobe InDesign integrates seamlessly with the other Adobe applications and can include native Photoshop and Illustrator files, and in CS4 you can now centralise your whole workflow through Adobe Bridge. PDF output, XML , and export to GoLive output are also supported, making InDesign the perfect tool for repurposing content.
