Thanks for coming to, the world's #1 resource for all things InDesign!

This Week in InDesign Articles, Number 43

It’s blustery and rainy! A good day to stay inside and work with InDesign. Of course, no matter where or who you are, there is always more to learn about InDesign… fortunately, besides a bunch of blog posts this week, we have lots of other resources available for you.

  • I just saw a post on our forums that a 6.0.6 patch for InDesign CS4 has come out. Nice to know that Adobe is still working on bug-fixing earlier versions.
  • Who doesn’t love fonts? If you want to dig up some of the great modern history of fonts, you need to read the old back issues of U&lc, now available as PDF. Not the best scan quality (parts cut off) but it’s better than nothing! (An uncle of mine, the late New York typographer Mac Baumwell, was, I believe, an editor of U&lc at some point in its history. Looking forward to finding those issues.)
  • Interested in XML? Dorothy Hoskins strikes again with this InDesign XML Publishing: College Catalog Case Study.
  • Look: InDesign is great software, but if history is any judge, it will probably be knocked off its throne within 5 to 10 years by some other software. Fortunately, folks at Adobe are already looking at how to perhaps reinvent the page-layout app themselves, and have released a beta version of an AIR app called ROME. You can check out ROME here. (Mike Rankin has already used the “after all, it wasn’t built in a day” pun with me… oy!)
  • Do you like to keep up with what’s happening in the Creative Suite, but you don’t know where to look? Bookmark the Adobe Creative Suite Updates blog.

EPUB and Interactive

Happy InDesigning!

  1. Just tried to insert a CMYK image in to a ROME file… Says it is unsupported color mode == CMYK. I guess print is dead :(.

  2. I should’ve waited until this week to buy the book for not only the lower price tag; but near parity of $US and $AUD… bugger.
