Key Features

Design professional layouts for print or digital publication. Adobe InDesign CS5.5 software provides precise control over typography as well as built-in creative tools for designing, preflighting, and delivering documents. Integration with leading industry tools and Adobe CS Live online services make page layout simpler and faster. Enhanced EPUB export and integration with the new Adobe Digital Publishing Suite help you create dynamic, professional publications for mobile devices, including leading tablets and smartphones. Efficiently create and export Adobe PDF documents that help you meet federal requirements for accessibility.

With Adobe InDesign CS5.5, you can:

Create powerful, innovative digital documents. Engage, inform, and attract readers with documents that integrate interactivity, video, and sound for playback on a tablet, smartphone, or computer. Develop stronger, more compelling messages with rich interactive documents.

Do more in less time. Create and edit documents faster. New productivity features--including linked text, the Articles panel, and the ability to drag and drop anchored objects--help make page layout simpler and smoother.

Create eBooks for screens and tablet devices. Retain greater control of content and typography when exporting documents to EPUB format, while reducing your dependence on developers. Design more engaging eBooks, with images that resize automatically to fit virtually any screen.

Top new features of Adobe InDesign CS5.5

Preview how your publication will appear on a tablet--including interactive overlays. View larger.
Folio Producer tools

Invite viewers to engage more deeply with your digital content using interactive overlays that offer readers panorama views, the ability to rotate objects 360 degrees, the chance to scroll and pan across an image, and access to placed websites. Use the new Folio Producer tools to add interactive overlays to your documents and preview them within the context of your publication in InDesign. Interactive overlays are supported in .folio files used in Adobe Digital Publishing Suite, which lets you create and distribute publications for tablet devices such as Apple's iPad, BlackBerry Playbook, and the Motorola Xoom. In addition to the new interactive overlays, you can also include audio, video, slide shows, and hyperlinks in .folio documents.

EPUB export enhancements

Create more compelling eBooks than ever before while reducing your dependence on developers, thanks to a smoother, more efficient EPUB workflow. Design and publish more engaging eBooks that include images that resize automatically to fit virtually any screen, and deliver improved typography in digital books with greater speed and control over type. You can also design eBooks that include video and audio. With these new features, you can offer eBook readers a smooth, predictable reading experience on virtually any device.

Drag content from your InDesign document into the Articles panel, and then organize them to appear in a logical order for the reader when exported. View larger.
Articles panel

Use the Articles panel to provide an improved reading experience in textbooks, highly designed books, or any other books you create that include images, captions, sidebars, or block quotes. Choose and organize your content by dragging images, text frames, and other content into the new Articles panel to define the order in which they'll export. You can control the sequence of text, images, and graphics in the exported document without changing your InDesign layout.

To ensure an image resizes automatically to fit the screen, select it, and then choose Object > Object Export Options. View larger.
Dynamic image resizing

Design and publish an eBook with images that look sharp and can be accessed on virtually any screen size--from a desktop monitor to a smartphone. The images resize automatically to fit the viewer's screen. When you export to the EPUB format, you can set conversion options for the entire document, or control how each image is converted individually. You can now also rasterize any shapes, text frames, placed graphics, and groups you created in InDesign, so that they'll be exported as images and resize dynamically, too. In addition to GIF and JPEG images, you can export PNG images in EPUB documents from InDesign CS5.5.

In the Export Tagging pane of the Character Style Options and Paragraph Style Options dialog boxes, you can map styles to HTML, EPUB, or PDF tags. View larger.
Styles mapped to tags

Managing the design of your type through styles saves you time and hassle--while allowing you to create more sophisticated text. Create digital documents that conform to open standards with improved basic typography without needing to make changes directly to the HTML code. In InDesign CS5.5, you can map paragraph and character styles directly to HTML, EPUB, and PDF tags to ensure that styles you define in InDesign are exported appropriately. For more advanced workflows, you can add CSS class names and type in your own custom tags.

Embedded video and audio in eBooks

Add another dimension to eBooks with embedded audio and video. Whether you're adding soundtrack music to a children's book, including tour videos in a travel guide, or including contemporary news footage in a historical volume, audio and video content take eBook readers beyond the traditional reading experience.

InDesign CS5.5 supports video and audio tags for newer standards such as HTML5 and EPUB 3. Embedded audio and video play in eBook reader applications that support those standards, such as Apple iBooks.

Simply select the text you want to link, choose Edit > Place And Link Story, and then click in the new text frame. The text you copied becomes the parent story; the linked text is added to the text frame; and the link appears in the Links panel. View larger.
Linked text

Save time and reduce errors by linking identical text blocks in a document, so that edits you make to the original story (the parent story) apply to all of them. Take advantage of this feature to ensure text remains consistent across duplicated content, such as when you're updating boilerplate legal text or product descriptions that appear throughout a document. With linked text, you can edit information in the parent story and simply update the link in the Links panel to correct the text everywhere it appears.

Drag the blue box to anchor the object to a specific point in the text. Press Shift as you drag the blue box to position an inline graphic. Press Alt or Option as you drag the blue box to set options for the anchored object. View larger.
Drag-and-drop anchored objects

As text reflows on the page, an anchored object remains in position, moving with the text it's anchored to. Now you can add anchored objects quickly and intuitively. Simply drag the small blue box from the frame of a selected image or text to the position in the text to which you want to anchor it.

PDF accessibility enhancements

Reduce the time it takes to create PDF documents that people with disabilities can use more effectively. Apply accessibility features within your InDesign document, rather than having to make the changes in Acrobat. PDF tags, alt tags, and the content order you assign stay with the document as you revise it.

Now you can more easily add, edit, and view alt text attributes that are associated with an image or object. For example, rather than creating new alt text, you can use description metadata that was added to an image in Adobe Bridge, or include alt text already attached to an object you imported from Microsoft Word. It’s also easier to add alt text directly in InDesign using the new Object Export Options dialog box.

The new Articles panel and the ability to map styles to PDF tags let you ensure content flows in the expected order when viewers use screen readers and other assistive technologies.
