What’s New in Acrobat X

Digital Publishing Suite Enhancements, Already!

At our last meeting, Noha Edell gave us an exciting and informative overview of the new Digital Publishing Suite from Adobe. This allows us to use InDesign to create interactive media that can end up on a variety of digital formats including the iPad and other ePubs. Shortly after her presentation, Adobe announced a whole new set of enhancements which further extends the capabilities we saw demonstrated.

For example, there’s a new Overlay Creator Panel. The Overlay Creator panel (Window > Extensions > Overlay Creator) in InDesign CS5 replaces the AIR-based Interactive Overlay Creator application. This change means that you now create all interactive overlays natively in InDesign. Use the Overlay Creator panel to create overlays and change overlay settings.

And, remember learning all about a new file format called, “.issue”? Well, forget about it. They are now called “.folio” to better represent a series of printed matter bound together.

There’s a whole lot more including subscription services in Viewer. Publishers can now set up their own subscription model that allows customers to subscribe to a magazine and receive regular downloads of .folio files. Customers can specify a range of .folio files that remain downloaded on the iPad—especially useful for news magazines.

We’ll conclude the meeting with our usual raffle for books, software, training certificates and a copy of InDesign CS5.
