InDesign is the best layout program for print without question

// Graphic Designer at Anthony Garcia

What do you like about InDesign CC?

Quark Xpress was the standard when I started in design, and I hated it. It was clunky and unintuitive, and really restrictive. Whenever I could I would just do all my design in Illustrator. Then came InDesign and changed everything. It was like Illustrator, but for multiple pages, and it was even better. It worked incredibly well with Photoshop, and even if the printers wouldn't switch we could export to PDF and just send them that. Over the course of a few years, everyone got on board and made the switch. All I could say was "I told you so!"

What do you dislike about InDesign CC?

There are just a couple of keyboard commands that are fairly often used in my workflow that are different from the other apps I am using at the same time, like Photoshop and Illustrator, so occasionally I hit the wrong one and have to undo something. I wish there was a way for the keyboard shortcuts to match perfectly, but the ones that are different actually make sense if you think it through though, so there isn't much to be done about it. Other than that it is pretty much perfect.

What have you been using it for and what problems did InDesign CC solve?

Any design work that I do that is going to print is designed in InDesign. It is the best program for layouts that integrate vector and raster graphics from other apps, and it goes to print easily and perfectly. The package for print feature makes it as simple as it can be to prepare files to share with the printer.
