Getting Started
Welcome to Adobe® InDesign® CC (2019 release), a powerful page-design and production
application that offers precision, control, and seamless integration with other Adobe professional
graphics software. Using InDesign, you can produce professional-quality, full-color documents
and print them using a variety of output devices, including desktop printers, high-resolution
imaging devices, and high-volume color printing presses. You can also design publications for a
broad range of electronic devices, such as tablets, smartphones, and readers, and export InDesign
documents in several formats, including PDF, HTML, and EPUB.
Writers, artists, designers, and publishers can communicate to a broader audience than ever
before through an unprecedented variety of media. InDesign supports this with its seamless
integration with other Creative Cloud (CC) components.

About Classroom in a Book
Adobe InDesign CC Classroom in a Book® (2019 release) is part of the official training series
for Adobe graphics and publishing software developed with the support of Adobe product
experts. The lessons are designed so that you can learn at your own pace. If you’re new to Adobe
InDesign, you’ll master the fundamentals and learn to put the software to work for you. If you’ve
already been using Adobe InDesign, you’ll find that this book teaches many advanced features
