Adobe InDesign 2.0 Now Available

Send Article to a Friend

Adobe InDesign 2.0 Now Available -- Adobe is now shipping Adobe InDesign 2.0, a major update for the company's next-generation page-layout application. InDesign 2.0 features object transparency, enabling you to import Photoshop or Illustrator files and retain transparency in feathered edges and drop shadows, for example. The new version also includes enhanced tools for creating and importing tables, expanded support for OpenType fonts, and greater collaboration with other Adobe programs. Perhaps most significant, InDesign 2.0 offers native support for Mac OS X, a claim that rival QuarkXPress seems unlikely to be able to make for some time. Finally, this release also extricates Adobe from a nasty legal situation it ran into at the close of 2001: a U.S. District Court judge prevented it from selling InDesign 1.5 due to a licensing issue with Trio Systems LLC over an InDesign component called C-Index, which led to a quick settlement for undisclosed terms; InDesign 2.0 doesn't contain the C-Index code. The full retail version of InDesign 2.0 costs $700. Upgrades are available at $100 for owners of previous versions of InDesign, and $300 for owners of PageMaker or PageMaker Plus. [JLC]
