Chapter 7. Importing and Exporting

Chapter 7. Importing and Exporting

Someday, you’ll need to do something that’s beyond the drawing and typesetting capabilities of InDesign. You’ll need to edit large amounts of text, adjust bitmap images, render 3-D objects, or create Web pages. Other applications do these things better than InDesign does. But you can add the files you create in other applications to your InDesign publication. And you can export InDesign pages for use in other page-layout and drawing programs.

That’s what this chapter is all about: importing files from disk, and exporting your document (or pieces of it) to disk. For the most part, our discussion of importing focuses on graphics because we cover importing text in Chapter 3, “Text.” However, you’ll also find an exploration of InDesign’s XML features at the end of this chapter (both importing and exporting XML).
