InDesign CS3 sneak peek
Adobe has released some early information about InDesign CS3, which is scheduled to ship in the second quarter of 2007. The media company unveiled only a small sampling of the software's feature set, but that was enough to convince InDesignSecrets.com that Adobe is committed to helping design professionals to impress their audiences. The demo was run on a MacBook Pro, proving that Adobe is working to release its applications for Apple's latest hardware. InDesign CS3 will feature object events, with object effects allowing users to apply Photoshop-like effects such as emboss and bevel to any InDesign object, including text. Transparency effects can be applied to an object's fill, stroke, or contents individually, and users can select multiple files in the "Place" dialog box. With a year before the company ships InDesign CS3, the features already presented bode well for designers.
