Adobe InDesign CC 2014, a powerful design and production application that offers precision, control, and seamless integration with other Adobe professional graphics software. you can produce professional quality, full-color documents on high-volume color printing presses, or print to a range of output devices, such as desktop printers and high-resolution imaging devices, or export to a range of formats, including PDF and EPUB. Writers, artists, designers, and publishers can communicate to a broader audience than ever before and through an unprecedented variety of media. InDesign supports this with its seamless integration with other Creative Cloud components
1. Seamless update:
The InDesign preferences and presets from an earlier version are retained. You can also manually trigger local migration of presets and preferences from Edit > Migrate Previous Local Settings.
2. What’s new Window:
once you install InDesign CC 2014, a What’s new dialog greets you with content that provides information about the new features in this release.
3. EPUB Enhancement
In this release, InDesign provides support for Fixed Layout EPUBs. You also get control over adding epub:type markups. The enhancements made in this release also provide improved CSS support for table and cell styles. You can update metadata in the fixed layout and reflowable layouts, in addition to, configuring the exported outputs in the Viewing Apps tab.
Fixed Layout: InDesign now supports this format that is interesting and interactive. This format is used widely for children’s eBooks and for complex non-fiction like cookbooks and textbooks. Unlike standard eBooks, fixed layout eBooks retain the same page layout and design, as their print book counterparts. You can export your InDesign document to a fixed layout EPUB format. You can control the way the layout would appear on a digital reader using this feature. Select File > Export > EPUB (Fixed Layout) from Save as type, to explore this format.
4. Improvement to Tables:
You now get the ability to simply drag-and-drop table rows and columns from one position to another within the same table. Select the rows you want to copy or duplicate, hover over the selected rows, a unique cursor indicating that the selection can be moved is displayed. The item row can be simply dragged and dropped (or copied with an ‘Alt’ key pressed).
You can also copy the contents from header and footer rows to body rows (by pressing Alt/Opt key). Likewise, body rows can also be duplicated and converted to header and footer rows
5. Color Group:
You can now create and manage color groups in InDesign. Simply create Color Groups from the Swatches panel through the new Color Group icon or from the flyout and context menu. You can also share the color groups with another application using Adobe Swatch Exchange (.ase) files. For example, load color swatches from another project in Illustrator.
6. Enhanced Data Merge for QR Code:
Now, you can place a data source containing a QR code in a merged document. The QR code workflow is integrated with the merged document. The following types of QR code can be linked via data merge in InDesign documents:
Today, if you’re creating business cards for multiple people (in an organization, for example), you can use data merge. If you want to add a QR code, you would have to manually create a QR code for every unique business card. With this new update to data merge, you don’t have to create a QR code manually for each card; the QR code can be automatically created during the data merge.
This is some parts of updates that have added to the Adobe InDesign CC 2014 and soon Adobe will add more for this program.
