One Comment on “InDesignSecrets Podcast 138

  1. So the consensus is: Acrobat X – somewhat useless, Output Condition Name – utterly useless (as far as we know!). I completely agree, although I was curious to see if master sleuth David could find anything useful in that weird bit of dialog — I sure couldn’t!

    The only thing I know about the CS5 dot release is that it is supposed to return Audition to Production Premium and the Master Collection (there was no version of it in CS5), but I don’t know what else might be in there. We could hope for some fixes for those ePub export problems, or a finished product on the Flash-to-iThing platform that was dropped during the earlier, um, unfortunateness.
