  • Integration with other Adobe solutions

  • Preflighting, production, and printing
    Speed up production, increase print reliability, and deliver error-free documents with live preflighting, document-installed fonts, JDF technology, background PDF export, presets, on-screen controls, and enhanced support for PDF/X standards.

    Produce sophisticated page layouts using customer-inspired productivity features such as Smart Guides, rapid table creation, multiple-file placement, on-object controls, and the ability to create pages of different sizes in a single file.
  • Robust text composition

  • Collaboration in editorial workflows

  • Styles mapped to tags in EPUB export
    More easily create standards-compliant digital documents with improved basic typography -- with no manual code changes required. Map paragraph and character styles directly to HTML, EPUB, and PDF tags so they export using appropriate specifications.

  • PDF accessibility enhancements
    Reduce the time it takes to create PDF documents that are more accessible to people with disabilities. More easily add, edit, and view Alt text attributes associated with an image or object.
