Adobe InDesign CS6 software introduces powerful features for print and digital workflows. More tools help you adapt layouts to multiple page sizes, orientations, and devices - without sacrificing pixel-perfect control over design and typography. Use the content collector tools to easily repurpose text and images in other files; link content across documents to help ensure consistency.
Apply liquid page rules to automatically adapt content when you create an alternate layout with a different size or orientation in InDesign.
Efficiently create and design multiple versions of a layout for different devices and print needs, all within a single InDesign file.
Link content within or across InDesign documents, so that changes (including interactivity) made to the parent text or object are applied to all linked children objects.
