Adobe Indesign

Posted on  by admin

Use InDesign’s suite of Plug-in, Scripting and Server SDKs, to fully extend and automate InDesign, InCopy, and InDesign Server. Distribute your plug-ins to everyone using Adobe Exchange.

With scripts leverage the power of InDesign to streamline editorial and publishing workflows of your users . Manage disparate text, image, and media assets and build and publish documents dynamically for print, web, and ebook distribution.

Build plug-ins, panels, and scripts that add custom features and functions: create effects, dynamic layouts, file import and export, and more. InDesign Server’s multithreaded SOAP engine lets you build complete document management and publishing solutions.

InDesign supports the Adobe Common Extensibility Platform (CEP), which lets you build scripts and panels that connect InDesign to other Adobe apps.

Automate entire multi-app workflows. Use InDesign’s IDML, an XML-based format, to manipulate documents and their contents. Process files for import and export, or read and write content to databases. Create anything from simple automations to complex, cross-platform-compatible feature panels in HTML and JavaScript.

InDesign also supports AppleScript and VBScript. Read about the recent changes to installation and management of InDesign Server licenses. Learn how you can get a Development version.

Convenient work. The developers of Adobe InDesign for Windows know for sure what tools and features the designer may need. With this in mind, they included a vast set of templates for all purposes. For those, who don’t rely on their artistic taste, there are pre-installed sets that allow you to play with colors. Also, for more convenient work, you can use special InDesign scripts.
