Adobe CC 2018: The Latest Example of Why Adobe Software Remains Unexcelled

Just when we thought Adobe’s Creative Cloud couldn’t get any better, it did! Adobe released Creative Cloud 2018 at the Adobe MAX creativity conference on 17 October 2017. With an audience of over 12,000 members, this is arguably their biggest release since its inception 5 years ago.

While there were many product demos to showcase their latest tools and features, most of them in respect of Photoshop and Illustrator, we’ll be taking a look at what’s new in Adobe InDesign CC 2018, since there are a few new features that we’ve been hoping to get for some time. If you’d like to find more products in the Adobe range or contact this company.

Adobe InDesign

The new features in InDesign will definitely impact our workflow, design layout options, as well as the way we work with InDesign text assets and fonts. Let’s have a look at some of them:

There’s no longer a need for 3rd party products of scripts to add endnotes to documents, because InDesign now has an endnotes options dialog, which will assist you in creating stylized endnotes, which will be placed at the end of the document automatically. It will also be easy to navigate from the endnote reference number to the endnote text.

Paragraph Borders
Paragraph borders allows us to highlight text with these borders which flow with your text. Adding a different design element to text just became a lot easier.

Font List Filter
This filter saves so much time, because we no longer need to search through all of the fonts we have available to us. It simply allows us to choose the fonts we want to use.

Object Styles Specifications
This is what all object style users have been waiting for: the ability to add specifications in regard to the size and position of the object. It also allows us to choose the object position’s proxy.

Text Assets
Text assets can be added to our Creative Cloud Libraries and can be used in InDesign as well as Illustrator. Not only can we save formatting and styles with the asset; if we drag and drop it into a document, the text will maintain all of the formatting we’ve applied.

True visionaries in the editing software niche, Adobe continuously pushes the envelope, upgrading and improving their software far beyond expectation, making it possible for creatives to take their creativity to levels never imagined before, regardless of the niche they’re in. Adobe Creative Cloud 2018 is a brilliant example of why Adobe continually transcends other editing software.
