Adobe InDesign CS2

Adobe InDesign CS2 would have been InDesign version 4 if Adobe had not renamed it for the Creative Suite.

Where InDesign Came From

A lot of history is behind InDesign. It started way back in 1986, when a company called Aldus introduced PageMaker, a ground-breaking program (most likely responsible for the era that would define the term desktop publishing) that enabled users to lay out pages on a computer screen and set type. As PageMaker evolved, it lost ground in the professional design community to competitor QuarkXPress. Adobe took ownership of PageMaker in 1994, but the technology that it was based on was limited in what it could do. Adobe began work on what it dubbed “the Quark Killer,” which was code-named K2. When K2 was finally named InDesign 1.0 and launched in 1999, it was greeted with little fanfare. Sure, there was hype, but being a version 1.0 product, it simply had too many issues that prevented people from using it. When Adobe released InDesign 2.0 in January 2001, it was a whole new ballgame.
