When I started scripting, about a year ago, I was really frustrated that app.selection didn’t returned correct selection order I used while selecting objects, instead, it returned sorted selection by object ID’s. To make things even worse, just few versions back, app.selection DID returned correct selection order! So, somebody messed things really bad! 😦
This is wonderful news especially for InDesign users! So, what’s new in this mid-cycle release?!
Let’s list most important ones:
- EPUB Export Improvements
- Style Mapping
- Articles Panel
- Linked Stories
- Object Export Options
- DPS Tablet Features
- Easier Anchored Objects
Also, bunch of old bugs from previous releases are corrected! But, that’s not all! Some CS5 users were frustrated with frame edge highlighting! Now in CS5.5 you are CAN turn it OFF! Woohoo! I will not go into details about features and stuff, because there is so many places where you can find info and I’ll list some of them:
- Introducing Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Product Family by Adobe
- What’s new in CS5.5 by Adobe TV
- Adobe CS5 Evolves: Digital Publishing from InDesign to Tablets Gets Better by Terry White, Worldwide Creative Suite Design Evangelist for Adobe

Thank you Adobe for making our creative work easier
with such a awesome and creative tools!
Keyboard shortcuts are a big time saver! And when I say big, I mean BIG! 😀 I love shortcuts, and by time, they become part of you, and your everyday workflow! But! It’s becoming difficult to remember all shortcuts when you use more than one program, and I know you do! So, I decided to create nice little interactive shortcuts guide and to be even better, I wanted to use just InDesign‘s interactive features!
So, what’s so special about this “new version”?
Like I said, it’s new year, new beginning, I’m full with new ideas, and I hope that this year will be awesome like last was, so, here is another really cool script that will help you overcome BUG which was mentioned here: Auto Apply Object Style to Placed Image. 😀
Also, you will not need special “Place Fun Frame” Object Style to apply desired object style while placing objects, and you will be able to even select different while placing multiple objects. Really?! Well, yes, I hope so! 😀
Do you need information about fonts used in your document(s)? Do you want to check is some fonts missing in a more than one file? You can do that with FontReporter®!
