Definition: InDesign

A full-featured desktop publishing program for Windows and Macintosh from Adobe. Introduced in 1999, InDesign superseded Adobe's PageMaker, which had been the de facto standard in the graphics arts industry for many years. In 2005, a server version of InDesign debuted with Adobe's Creative Suite 2 (CS2) for automating publishing tasks. Containing no user editing features, the server version supports JavaScript, AppleScript, VBScript and C++ programs. Third-party tools enable InDesign to work with Indian, Asian and other non-letter alphabets. See PageMaker.
