Overall Satisfaction with Adobe InDesign
Adobe InDesign is used by several different departments across our company. It is a platform we utilize for website design elements, proposal documents, and various graphics to promote our services. InDesign is easy to navigate and allows our employees to easily create the graphic pieces we need for different projects across the organization and for our clients. It allows us to maintain control of creative aspects, rather than outsourcing to a 3rd party vendor and merely hoping for a viable piece of content.
- InDesign is perfect for piecing together different graphic elements with content. It allows you to create multi-page projects all at once, rather than having to construct one page at a time.
- InDesign is the perfect platform to use when creating projects that have text-heavy content. It gives users the ability to control and format large portions of texts and apply different features in a few simple clicks.
- InDesign has helpful grids and guides that help users to position different page elements.
- We have come across some issues with not being able to open PDFs to edit in InDesign.
- With so many tool features, it can be hard to find the specific tool you're looking for. A guide explaining each tool may be helpful for newer users.
- InDesign doesn't have the best features for editing creative elements like photos and graphics.
- InDesign has allowed our company to create templates for different projects and content pieces. By doing this, our printed material and client-facing documents look professional and consistent.
- It's hard to put an exact number on an ROI that we have seen using InDesign, but any employee who currently uses the product would say our bottom line has improved by having aesthetically appealing content.
Adobe InDesign is the go-to platform for creating documents, as opposed to Photoshop, which we utilize to create purely graphic elements. In my opinion, InDesign is easier to use and navigate than Photoshop with the snap-to guides. It allows users to easily line up content and apply filter settings to multiple content blocks at once. It is ideal for anyone looking to create multi-page documents and/or design printed materials.
Luckily, our company hasn't experienced much trouble with InDesign, if any at all. Adobe is always super responsive in the event we need support, which is why our company continues to trust and invest in their products. I would rate the overall support a 10/10 and recommend to any company.

InDesign is our company's platform of choice for creating text rich documents. It is best suited for creating multi-page documents since it allows for text to be easily aligned and formatted. We use it to create documents such as proposals, whitepapers, client renewals, and more. It is less effective for creating purely graphic content pieces.
