Top reasons to upgrade to Adobe® InDesign® CS5.5

Folio Producer tools—Create, preview, and bundle engaging digital documents for tablet devices such as Apple iPad, RIM BlackBerry PlayBook, and a wide variety of Android tablets, including the Motorola Xoom. Upload these documents to Adobe Digital Publishing Suite1 for further production, distribution, and analysis.

Enhanced eBook authoring2—Create more engaging eBooks with less need for developers. Use a smoother workflow as you include refined typography and images that resize automatically to fit virtually any screen. You can now even add video and audio for eBook reader applications that support HTML5 video and audio tags.

Articles panel—Control the sequence of text, images, and graphics when you export to EPUB or HTML without changing your InDesign layout. Organize your content by dragging it into the new Articles panel to define the export order.

Styles mapped to tags—More easily create standards-compliant digital documents with improved basic typography—no manual code changes required. Map paragraph and character styles directly to HTML, EPUB, and PDF tags to ensure that styles you define in InDesign are correctly exported to the appropriate specifications.

Linked text—Maintain consistency more easily when working with content that’s duplicated throughout a document. Link identical text blocks within a layout so that changes to the parent block are automatically made in all the others.

Dragging and dropping of anchored objects—Add inline graphics and other anchored objects quickly and intuitively by simply dragging them to the desired anchor location in the text.

PDF accessibility enhancements—Reduce the time it takes to create PDF documents that are more accessible to people with disabilities. More easily add, edit, and view Alt text attributes associated with an image or object.

Enhanced PDF export options—Export Adobe PDF documents that meet the PDF/X-4:2010, PDF/X-5:2010, and PDF/VT-1 standards for tight integration with Adobe Acrobat® X and Adobe PDF Print Engine 2.5.
