Designing Books with InDesign

by Ron Kurtus (updated 22 January 2022)

Do you want to design professional layouts for print and digital publishing using Adove InDesign software? Then this section if for you.

Adobe® InDesign® is a software application for the design of professional layouts for print and digital publishing. It allows you to create print layouts, immersive content for playback in the Flash Player runtime and interactive PDF documents.

The latest version is InDesign CC (Creative Cloud). Unfortunately it is not backwards compatible to some earlier versions of InDesign.

Since I use InDesign to format my books, that is the emphasis of these lessons.
