InDesign CS3 5.01 Update Released
Today Adobe released the long-anticipated InDesign CS3 5.01 update. The free update fixes over 50 known bugs in InDesign CS3, including some so egregious–in particular, bugs involving building indexes from multiple documents in a book palette–that users had been forced to retreat to CS2. (See Podcast 60 for more on these bugs.)
Other bugs or ‘feature anomalies’ changed in the 5.01 update include:
- The removal of white ‘stitch’ lines in imported INDD files when printed or exported to PDF.
- A number of instances where documents could be corrupted or InDesign could unexpectedly quit.
- Fonts activated by third-party font management utilities should appear properly now.
- Alphabetized table of contents across multiple documents a book appears in the correct order now.
- Printing multiple copies of uncollated documents should now print as quickly as it did in CS2.
While 5.01 hasn’t been out long enough to fully test it, I’ve heard good things about it and I’m currently recommending that all users update.
You can download the update from Adobe’s download site, or by choosing Help > Updates from within InDesign.
