Top New Features in Adobe InDesign CS6
Liquid Layout—Apply liquid page rules to automatically adapt content when you create an alternate layout with a different size or orientation in InDesign.

Alternate Layout—Efficiently create and design multiple versions of a layout for different devices and print needs, all within a single InDesign file.

Linked content—Link content within or across InDesign documents, so that changes (including interactivity) made to the parent text or object are applied to all linked children objects.

Content Collector tools—Grab text and objects from an existing layout using the Content Collector. In a new layout, use the Content Placer to add items in the order you want them to appear.

PDF forms within InDesign—Create form fields directly within InDesign before you export to PDF. You can also assign the tab order in InDesign using the Articles panel.

Middle Eastern language support—Buy and update the Middle Eastern version of InDesign directly from Adobe for easier localization of global documents and enhanced functionality.
