What are the top 10 new features in Adobe InDesign CS2?
The top 10 new features in Adobe InDesign CS2 are:
Adobe Bridge Browse, organize, label, and preview graphics, as well as InDesign documents, templates, and snippets. Drag and drop assets from Adobe Bridge into layouts more easily and efficiently. Search for files using metadata, such as keywords, colors, and fonts used.
Object styles Apply and globally update object-level formatting more efficiently using object styles. Save a wide range of graphic, text, and frame-level attributes as object styles to create more consistent designs and speed up production tasks.
Control visibility of layers in Adobe Photoshop and PDF files Selectively display layers and layer comps in Photoshop files, and layers in Adobe PDF files, to experiment with different design options or use multiple variations of a file in your layout-all while linking to a single file.
InDesign snippets Easily export InDesign objects as snippets, which can be shared with colleagues or reused in other documents. When you place or drag a snippet into a layout, InDesign recreates the original objects, their formatting, and their relative positioning on the page.
Tighter integration with Adobe InCopy CS2 Collaborate more closely with editors through the new Adobe InCopy CS2 LiveEdit workflow, which enables designers and editors to work in parallel on an InDesign layout without overwriting each other's changes. With the new assignments workflow, you can break up access to documents among multiple editors by assigning only those elements that different editors need to work on-whether that's specific frames on a page, on one or more spreads, or across a document.
Ability to open InDesign CS2 files in InDesign CS Export your InDesign CS2 document to the InDesign Interchange format (INX) to share with people still working in InDesign CS.
Anchored objects Easily anchor callouts, pull quotes, margin notes, and graphics to text. Precisely control the positioning of anchored objects, apply text wrap settings, and more.
Significantly enhanced Microsoft Word/RTF import filter Automatically style Microsoft Word files on import by mapping Word styles to InDesign styles. Also resolve style name conflicts at import, preserve local overrides while removing other formatting, and save Word import settings as presets for future use.
Smart text handling Drag and drop text within and between text frames, tables, views, and documents. Automatically strip the original formatting from copy as you paste it, so that the pasted text will inherit the formatting applied at its new location. Preview fonts in WYSIWYG font menus.
Enhanced XML support Import XML files using enhanced import options, which give you flexible control and make it easier to achieve the results you want. Create a link to an XML file on import for easier updating. Apply XML tags to InDesign tables, and then import XML content into or export it from those tables.
