Adobe InDesign CS4 software is for both online and offline publishing, allowing the user to create print layouts, content for playback in Adobe Flash Player, and interactive PDF documents.The newly included Live Preflight detects and repairs production errors twice as fast as earlier versions of the software (as verified by independent research). It does so by alerting you to potential production problems in real time so you can quickly locate the problem, fix it and keep working. As part of the InDesign family, Adobe InDesign CS4 provides a foundation for improved publishing workflows, both now and in the future.
Find and fix production errors twice as fastr
Catch production errors as you design with real-time preflighting. Instead of flagging them at the end of the design process, Live Preflight alerts you to errors as they arise so you can quickly find them, fix them, and move on.
Navigate links more quickly with intuitive access and greater control
Find, sort, manage, and organize placed files with a redesigned and more powerful Links panel. Thumbnails, customizable views, and easier access to more attributes make it much easier to stay on top of all your linked assets.
Position, scale, and align objects in half the time
Align, space, rotate, and resize single or multiple objects faster with the help of dynamic new Smart Guides. The guides, object dimensions, rotation angles, and x and y coordinates appear dynamically to help speed up desired object positioning.
Save time by placing images proportionately
Place images more efficiently with automatic fitting. Images are scaled automatically to fit their frames' proportions. Or, override the scaling with a fitting option preset.
Create and manage one file instead of many with conditional text
Build variants of manuals, student/teacher textbook editions, or multilanguage publications within a single Adobe® InDesign® file. Quickly create and apply conditions to specific text, and then hide and show the text as needed without relying on layers. Text and anchored objects reflow automatically.
Add document pages automatically with Smart Text Reflow
Add text without interrupting your creative process, thanks to automatic addition of pages at the end of a story, selection, or document when text is overset.
Streamline production with cross-references that update when you change content or rearrange text within a document.
Edit tables in the Story Editor
Edit tables directly within the Story Editor. Editing your table content directly within the text flow allows you to quickly correct overset text without affecting the table design.
