InDesign CS4 is more than just a page layout tool; as part of
Adobe's new Creative Suite 4, it's a key component of an overall
design workflow that lets users work seamlessly among all of their
graphics applications to create spectacular layouts. Work faster,
create more is what Adobe wants users to do with InDesign, and this
info-packed guide lets users get right down to doing just that by
focusing on the InDesign CS4 features they're most likely to use
and showcasing each in a stand-alone tip--complete with a relevant
hint or two and a graphic example. In this fashion, readers learn
as they go, exploring the program in a way that makes sense to
them. Before they know it, users will be using the Bridge to manage
their files, object styles to format their images, and snippets to
save layout parts for reuse.
Features new to InDesign CS4 that are covered include: live preflight, customizable Links panel, conditional text, cross references, interactive document capability with the new SWF file, animated page transitions, export to Flash CS4 functionality, Smart Guides and Smart Spacing, spread rotation, and smart text reflow.
