Introduction

Welcome to the InDesign CS2 Visual QuickStart Guide, my fourth version of the book. It’s hard to believe how quickly InDesign has become a major force in desktop publishing and page layout. I feel very lucky to have been working with and teaching InDesign since its very first version. In fact, this is the only third-party book that has had editions for all four versions of InDesign.

Rarely has an application caused as much excitement as InDesign. The first version, released in April 2000, was hailed for its innovative typographic features. Version 1.5, which came out in December of 2000, added more tools and text controls. With version 2, InDesign created great excitement by adding transparency effects. With InDesign CS, Adobe added new automation features such as nested styles and PDF interactive features.

Now, with InDesign CS2, Adobe has added the long-requested object styles as well as pathfinder commands, and sophisticated inline and anchored objects. InDesign is now even better integrated with other Creative Suite 2 applications and can change the visibility of Photoshop and Acrobat layers within the InDesign document.
