FAQ

How does InDesign CC integrate with other Adobe products?

InDesign CC tightly integrates with Adobe Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, Acrobat XI Pro, InCopy CC, and Flash Professional CC. InDesign CC shares a common user interface, commands, panels, and tools with Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash Professional, and InCopy, so it’s easy to apply what you know about one program when you’re learning another, and to move efficiently from program to program. Because you can import native Photoshop and Illustrator files, it’s easier to lay out, enhance, and update graphics.

Native support for PDF files gives you reliable, consistent output whether you publish to print, the web, or devices. Strong integration between InDesign and Flash Professional means you can hand off your page layouts with great fidelity and maintain animation, sound, and video files placed in your documents. In addition, InDesign and InCopy work together to provide robust editorial workflow management for small creative teams

Is InDesign CC extensible?

Yes. Developers can fully extend and automate InDesign CC using standard programming technologies including ActionScript, C++, JavaScript, AppleScript, and VBScript. Developers can also sell and distribute their extensions to the entire Creative Cloud install base using Adobe Exchange, which is integrated with InDesign CC.

The InDesign CC software development kit (SDK) provides documentation, tools, and sample code to help customize and build InDesign plug-ins. For more information, visit the InDesign Developer Center. Learn more about automating publishing tasks in InDesign with scripting resources.
