What is Adobe InDesign for Mac

InDesign is available as part of Adobe Creative Cloud for as little as $20.99/month (or $9.99/month if you're a previous InDesign customer).

Adobe InDesign is part of Creative Cloud. That means you have access to all the latest updates and future releases the moment they're available. Sharpen your skills and master new tools with a rich and growing library of training videos. And Creative Cloud is integrated with Behance, so you can share your projects and get immediate feedback from creatives around the world.

What's new in Adobe InDesign

Version 16.2:
Map optical size to font size:
  • The optical size is by default mapped to the font size for the variable fonts in your text
Fixed issues:
  • Stability and performance:
  • The character sequence -xx'-x crashes InDesign/InCopy when German language is applied on it
  • InDesign crashes in PlugPlugOwl
  • Creative Cloud Libraries panel freezes in InDesign 2021
Improvement to new features:
  • In the Share for Review workflow, some review comments do not appear in the InDesign document but appear fine in the browser version and in the Comments panel
  • Share for Review panel is blank on trying to initiate a new Share for Review
  • Strange fill in characters of some Variable Fonts
  • Fonts are activated unintentionally from Adobe Fonts when same fonts are available in the Fonts folder
  • Password-protected public link of Share for Review won't open in browser
Production:
  • Some text is missing or appears displaced when importing PDF created from Canva
Core feature and workflow:
  • The Extendscript support for Navigation Points inside a movie causes some error in InDesign 2021 (16.0)
  • HSB colors in Swatches and Color panels work incorrectly when the Color Settings is set to "Emulate Adobe InDesign 2.0 CMS Off"
  • ALT text for hyperlinks is incorrectly placed in Tagged PDF
  • GREP Find/Change: "Beginning of Paragraph" search does not find all the results
  • [Japanese only] Find Format and Change Format sections missing from the Find/Change dialog
  • Artifact Tag that is set for Paragraph Styles gets ignored in exported PDF on some locales
  • The Length slider on Japanese Variable Fonts is moving incorrectly on vertical typesetting
  • Adding a single swatch to the library is also creating a duplicate
  • Exporting jpgs (while overwriting an existing jpg) results in no file when attempting to save to a network drive
  • InCopy ignores the empty paragraph at the beginning of a story

Adobe InDesign is a clean page layout program. You can combine all your graphics from Illustrator and Photoshop to create multiple page breaks and layouts. Newer versions of Adobe InDesign at crackplease have more interactive output options. You can create e-books for devices like a Kindle. You can also create schemas for viewing on tablets such as the iPad.

I won't need to upgrade from InDesign CS6 until I need a 64bit app, after macOS 10.15 comes out next year. By then Affinity Publisher will be out of beta. If it can handle my InDesign files, I will be switching. Assuming Serif follows the pricing policy they use with Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer, it will cost $50 for a single standalone license—no subscription necessary. I've used InDesign for years but cannot afford the Adobe tax. Though the blurb above says you can get InDesign for $9.99 a month if you're a previous InDesign customer, there is no way on their purchase page to get that discount. Maybe they'll lower the price once Publisher has stolen some of their customers, but I'm not holding my breath.

The new Quark $400 competitive update looks like a pretty good deal to me. It is certainly better then sticking with an old copy of InDesign CS6 I think.

I can't find it here at MU (which is weird), but feel I should post a link to VivaDesigner for all those who are getting fed up with the Adobe subscription model that simply isn't delivering its money worth of updates and improvements. At this stage I have no experience with VivaDesigner, but the info on their website sounds promising. http://www.viva.us/en/products/desktop-publishing/vivadesigner-desktop-version

One star for one bug fix out of dozens! From CS6 Adobe introduced a range of bugs to torment book designers! The bug that is fixed at flaming last is the fatal error InDesign Must shut down if you dare to change the page size with anything locked on the page, but they have introduced an extra level to the main bug, as a book designer a mechanical is made by making the document the page width + page width + spine! the height is the height, to change the spine you add or take away from the default spine width, but whereas anything in the slug used to move randomly, the get around was to group the items, not bless their cotton socks they have made the App randomly move thing regardless of if they are grouped or not! This is a major BUG as far as book cover designers are concerned we have to change spines all the time, so this breaks every workflow out there, to have these bugs present for so long is a disgrace! But at least we do not have the fatal error now, instead if the folds are locked InDesign just moves them anyway - IDIOTS!

I despise Adobe on many levels. Their shitty application frame implementation and subsequent Houdini interface disappearing act is so aggravating over time. Will those corporate monopolistic thieves ever get in line with Apple's windowing system? I've wasted so much time fixing this issue over and over, year after year. I really hope Serif's desktop publishing offering (makers of Affinity Photo and Designer) will allow me to FINALLY FORGET ABOUT ADOBE ALTOGETHER. InDesign is really the only app left I cannot yet replace.
