InDesign CC (2014.2)

Creative Cloud Libraries

Browse and access your creative assets — colors, type styles, shapes, and more — in new libraries that are available in InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop. Easily access assets created from the Shape CC and Color CC mobile apps. Libraries sync to Creative Cloud and can be shared so you and your creative team always have the files you need, right when you need them. See how it works ›

InDesign libraries migration

Easily move graphic elements you've created and stored in InDesign libraries — such as text frames or groups of objects — into new Creative Cloud Libraries for quick access to all your assets from one place.

Ungroup remembers layers

Group objects from different layers to move and scale them together. And now when you ungroup your elements, InDesign keeps your original layers intact instead of combining them into a single layer.

Footnotes will support text wrap from the containing text frame and external page items.

EPUB interactivity

Enhance your digital books with elegantly formatted footnotes that pop up in context on the page being read with a simple tap. Give readers the additional information they need without interrupting their focus or reading flow.

Improved handling of native ID objects on EPUB export

Font search and filter

Find the perfect font, fast. Type any portion of a font name, such as “bold,” “semicondensed,” or “italic,” or any part of a font family name, and see only the fonts that match your criteria. You can now also filter for Typekit fonts.

Font favorites

Find the fonts you use most often without wading through your entire collection. Mark your favorites, and then decide whether to display only those or the full set.
