What's new in Adobe InDesign CC 2019

Version 14.0:
Content-Aware Fit:
  • With Content-Aware Fit, InDesign can now intelligently fit the best part of an image when you place it inside a frame. The best part of the image is determined based on the dimensions and aspect ratio of the frame as well as by evaluating various parts of the image
Layout adjustment:
  • Layout adjustment in InDesign is now quick and easy. If you need to change the page size of a document after text and images have been added, you no longer need to manually adjust the text, images, or other elements
  • The new Adjust Layout feature automatically adjusts all elements in the layout when the page size, page margin, or bleed of a document is changed
Import PDF comments:
  • You can now import any marked up PDF into InDesign and easily track the feedback and comments noted in the PDF. You can accept comments and mark them resolved or unresolved. Selecting a comment also highlights the section in the document where the comment is applicable
Properties panel:
  • The new Properties panel in InDesign lets you view settings and controls in the context of your current task or workflow. This new panel has been designed with ease of use in mind, ensuring that you have access to the right controls when you need them
  • The Properties panel is available by default in the Essentials workspace. You can also enable it from Window > Properties
Visual font browsing:
  • You can now browse thousands of fonts from hundreds of type foundries from within InDesign, activate them instantly, and use them in your documents. The Fonts panel includes various new options to provide you an enriched experience while working with fonts. You can apply a filter to view only the recently added fonts. You can also select a sample text from the list of predefined text for font preview or select your own text as well. You now also have the option to change the font size while previewing the font
OpenType SVG fonts support:
  • With the support for OpenType SVG fonts in InDesign, you can now provide multiple colors and gradients in a single glyph
OpenType SVG fonts: Multiple colors and gradients:
  • Using OpenType SVG emoji fonts, you can include various colorful and graphical characters, such as smileys, flags, street signs, animals, people, food, and landmarks in your documents. You can also create composite glyphs. For example, using the EmojiOne font, you can create the flags of countries or achieve skin tone diversity in your glyphs
  • Combine glyphs to form the flags of countries
  • Combine glyphs to form the flags of countries
  • Combine single-person characters with skin colors
  • Combine single-person characters with diverse skin tones
Add footnotes in tables:
  • You can now insert footnotes in a table in InDesign. The footnote text appears at the bottom of the text frame
  • The reference number of a footnote in a table will be in continuation with the reference number of footnotes in that story
  • Table footnotes are retained while importing Word documents and are exported to formats that support footnotes, such as PDF, EPUB, and HTML
Space between paragraph styles:
  • You now have the ability to choose whether the spacing before or after affects the text of the same style. The Space Between Paragraphs Using Same Style option in the Styles dialog lets you specify a value for space between paragraphs having the same style. This value is used only if two consecutive paragraphs have the same paragraph style. If the paragraph styles of consecutive paragraphs are different, the value for the Space Before and Space After options are used
Other enhancements:
  • You can now retain the filename while exporting a document. When you select the Use InDesign Document Name as the Output Filename option, the exported PDF will have the same name as the name of the document from the next export. Else, it will have the name previously entered by you
  • You can now convert endnotes to footnotes and footnotes to endnotes in InDesign
  • Now, while creating a package, you have an option to choose whether you want to create printing instructions for that package
  • Select Create Printing Instructions from the Summary tab in the Package dialog box.
  • Click Package
  • Now, every document will remember its last export format. If the document is shared with another user or accessed from another machine, it will still retain the format in which that document was last exported
  • The Index panel now has larger area to display index entries, so you can locate them
  • Also, you will find a new search box to search for an index entry. Simply type the text you want to search and use next and previous arrows to search in the index entries
  • Now, with custom fonts you can customize the look of forms in an exported PDF

Once again, Adobe had become a pathetic excuse of a Mac developer living on past credit. As usual, the Adobe Updater program does not recognize these updates on either Intel or PPC machines. You have to use these links to manually download and install the updates (Don't even get me started on how the Updater continues to say I need the Adobe AIR update for Flash but craps outs every time it tries to install!!). Add to this the long running yet still unresolved Adobe bug in InDesign that prevents keystroke Hide (Command + H) to work until you restart the program. It's just pathetic!! I really have no idea what, if any, improvements have been made. Just seems the same...still crashes on half our print jobs the first run. Overall, I like the Adobe products; Photoshop and Illustrator are indispensable. But let's be honest, there has been little truly advance development in these products for about 2 or 3 iterations, unless you want to count OS X & Mac Intel compatibility as advances. Adobe seems content to simply suck on the teet of its cash cows! /

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.

Since I wrote that post I have been using it for several months now and I can say that there are many parts of it I like a lot more then ID. This is the first version of Quark I have used so it is a bit hard for me to make too deep of a comparison between the two products. I have found that many of the ID features Quark can't do can be added by way of extensions.

The war between Indesign and Quark Xpress was over long ago.
Quark Xpress was always much better with extensions, but after having gone through a messy divorce with Quark long ago it is really hard to go back. I always liked the user interface in QXP 4.3 which allowed you to work really fast, but Quark trashed that.
They desperately want users back but I think there are far too many ex-users like myself who'd rather saw my head off.
A excellent alternative is VivaDesigner which is not listed on MacUpdate unfortunately. It has really great features for managing distributed templates and works with Indesign templates.

The new 2018 update looks really good. There is extra flexibility with the interface, for an example you can now put that bar on the bottom on the side if you like.

Here is a quick overview video:

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

It certainly looks interesting enough to try out a Personal licence perhaps upgraded to Commercial later on. And it is not Rentware!

Things that catch my eye are great pdf export for commercial print, it opens and saves .idt and it uniquely has lockable whole or partial layouts in templates.

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 commiserate with you, Glenbo. I gave up on trying to use the InDesign inbuilt functions to make covers and downloaded CoverBuilder. With all its options and flexibility re cover and spine size changes, flaps, slugs, etc, I recommend that you go check it out here:

Cheers Kobalt, I have this but the problem in the UK is that the printers here that Publishers use will not take PDFs from this approach! I use https://www.danrodney.com/scripts/makebookjacket.html instead, but it is a mess isn't it, all these tears later and not one software vendor supports book covers well!?

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.

If InDesign is your last hangup, I strongly recommend trying the free demo of the current version of Quark XPress (2017 launches next quarter). If you've used Quark in the past, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised how much it has evolved over the past few years. They are really trying, actually listening to their users and doing a great job. And if you've never tried Quark, I think you'll find it very responsive and user-friendly, compared to InDesign.

Quark Xpress reminds me of Charlie Brown in Peanuts where Lucy promises she won't whip away the football at the last minute...

So CC 2017. A few miserable tweaks and this is a 'new and improved' version for all us suckers who are paying $100s a year for the pleasure. For now I'm stuck with it due to workflow and industry expectations, but I can't wait for Affinity Publisher to give Adobe a run for their (our!) money next year.
