3.0 out of 5 stars Not intuitive 5 Jan 2013
By Cabinart -. Jana Botkin - Published on Amazon.com

After struggling with a decision between Adobe InDesign and Quark for about a year, I chose Adobe because it seems most widely accepted by print shops. (I'm working on an Illustrated book and being my own designer.)

Wow. After years of using nothing but Mac, I guess I am spoiled by intuitive programs. Drag this here, click this little thingie, move that dealie over. . .

Adobe InDesign is NOTHING like that. I have watched multiple videos on how to do things, tried to follow what they show on their happy little clicky videos, and then I end up with yet another question on my very long list of "How Do I. . ." Some things are in the upper menu bar and rarely where one would expect. Others are in a lower menu bar under tiny, mysterious icons. Yet others are in windows that need to be opened, if you can remember which menu, word or icon to click.

Finally got together with a friend who answered all my questions, and the answers were NEVER logical to my Apple-trained mind. I wrote all the solutions to my questions to keep with my Mac, and still have to refer to them if I don't use the program for a month or two.

It seems to be doing a fine job, but that learning curve is long, slow business.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adobe InDesign (and creative suite) 19 Jun 2013
By d'Isigny - Published on Amazon.com
InDesign is an exceedingly powerful, flexible layout, design, and publishing tool. InDesign is the print industry standard world wide. It is not for the casual user; one is not likely to "pick up and run with it" without a good head for software and computers, but should be able to use its basic functions.
With a couple of good training books, videos, or courses (and the time to go through the exercises), one could learn to use this software well and create almost anything -- print wise, from a tiny ad to a magazine layout, to large banners, to trade show booth art.*
With use, ID can become quite speedy to use too, and works smoothly with the rest of the Creative Suite, including dragging and dropping images files, pulling out Snippets to reuse, etc. One could import a Word document and map the styles so that it pulls in largely pre-formatted and flows into the layout nearly ready to go, but these are among more advanced features. Though not its primary function, some web files can be exported as well, to create web banners and ads. (Be sure your system is adequate.)
Is InDesign perfect? Probably not. But after using it for many years, I have to say that I feel it is darn good; there are few others in its league or as widely accepted in the industry today.

(*What are my qualifications to comment like this? I'm a professional graphic designer who worked in the printing industry for 15 years prior to my current 15 year stent as an in-house graphic designer; I work for corporate marketing and communication for an international company with over 250,000 employees. I've used this product since, well, before it was this product -- beginning with Aldus Pagemaker that later evolved into InDesign. It is a good product.)

Very happy with my purchase, I was concerned because it was "used" but it downloaded easily and I have already been designing a book with it. Nice to purchase this at this price! Company was prompt and it was packaged good.

I needed this older version for one of my employees who was working from home on maternity leave. It works great with the version I have in the office.
