InDesign Templates

Until InDesign CS4, Adobe shipped a number of templates with InDesign. However, when CS5 shipped, those templates mysteriously disappeared. After a year of legal wrangling with Adobe, we have obtained permission to distribute those templates here, at InDesignSecrets.com.

Please note:

  • These templates are saved in the CS4 format, so you can open them in InDesign CS4 and later.
  • We’re distributing the templates “as is” and subject to Adobe’s own licensing agreements (see below).
  • These are templates, which means you may create pretty much any InDesign documents you want based on them. But it also means that they’re just starting points. Don’t expect them to be perfect. (Hey, we didn’t build them!)

Enjoy!
