InDesign CS2 4.0.4
Although not yet Universal, Adobe recently posted an update to flagship desktop publishing application. Adobe InDesign CS2 4.0.4 provides key fixes in the areas of indexing, launch issues, transparency, shortcuts, text and fonts, scripting, inline graphics, InDesign Interchange (INX) files, German hyphenation, XML, library files, performance, QuickTime 7.x support, printing, SING glyphlets, EPS export, text import, and others. Adobe also said that the update removes a change that was included as part of the InDesign CS2 4.0.3 public update to address two changes that were made in the previous update, but caused problems for users. The update is available as a 41MB download. The company has noted that Mac users must wait for Adobe InDesign CS3, due out early next year, for Universal support, despite the recent Universal QuarkXpress 7.01 release by its publishing rival.
"After you enlarge the canvas size of an image in Adobe Photoshop, the linked image does not enlarge or scale correctly in Adobe InDesign CS2. This change resulted in two new issues that users reported," according to the support document. "After changing the canvas size of an image in Adobe Photoshop, the image dimensions are then unexpectedly scaled in InDesign CS2 version 4.0.3 on relink or update of the image link, and JPEG images saved from Photoshop always place at 72ppi. These two new issues no longer occur in the InDesign CS2 4.0.4 update."
