InDesign is a sophisticated page-layout program. You can use it to create professional-looking documents, including newsletters, books, and magazines. You can also use it to create documents for distribution on a tablet such as an iPad, and even documents that include interactivity or videos. InDesign has evolved into a tool that lets you publish content to just about any device or in print. For example, using InDesign you can create a document and distribute content in print and then add hyperlinks and video and export it to PDF or HTML.
