Last week we uploaded new installers for all our products.
The big news of the new installers is CS5.5 compatibility. All our commercial products have been updated to be compatible with CS5.5.
Additionally, we further streamlined our activation process. Until now, InDesign had to be restarted after activating for our products to be fully licensed. We also had some issues with the activation failing for certain users due to permissions issues. Starting with our newest versions activations should be an instant one-click process and the permissions issues that some user had should now be history.
We also packed bug fixes into many of our products, so we recommend that all users update.
InDesign can not open files saved by later versions of the application.
This has been a source of a lot of grumbling over the years. I’ve heard all kinds of silly theories as to why this is so — including one that Adobe does this on purpose to “force” you to upgrade. Conspiracy theories are exciting and everything, but there’s really no conspiracies related to InDesign…
Earlier today Bob Levine wrote in a tweet that he needs a script to move all buttons to a “button layer”. I’m not sure exactly what Bob needed this for, but I can see where this could be useful in digital (magazine) publishing.
Yes. We’re going. How ’bout you? We’re very excited about being part of the Print & ePublishing Conference this year! We are looking forward to seeing all our old friends as well as new!
We hope to have some cool stuff to show everyone as well as some nice stuff for you to take home. Please make sure to stop by and say hello when you are there!
If you have any ideas on what you’d like to see from us, please feel free to discuss your ideas on our forum. We love to hear what you think!
We were made aware that there were some problems with a few of the latest Mac installers.
Due to an error during compiling the installers, some of the files installed were not correct. The affected products were: World Tools (not Pro), Power Headers, and Style Utilities. The related suites were also affected namely: the Publisher Suite and the World Publisher Suite Pro.
The installers have been fixed. If you have downloaded one of these products since the new website went live, please re-download it and reinstall.
We’d also like to take this opportunity to suggest subscribing to RSS on our announcements forum. We will be blogging about major updates in the future, but small changes and fixes will be posted on the forum.
Thanks for your support!
