Overall Satisfaction with Adobe InDesign

We use InDesign to create quarterly performance reports for investors of our properties. The other assistant in the office and I are the only ones who use it. I use the program a few weeks each quarter (January, April, July, October). It addresses the problem of creating clean, clear, beautiful reports for our investors to get a snapshot of how their investments are performing.


  • InDesign makes it easy to have one template across a project.
  • InDesign makes it easy for you to create custom projects.


  • InDesign is complex to use and requires training.
  • InDesign makes it a little difficult to format text uniformly.
  • Being able to create an attractive presentation of information helps the appearance of our company.
I've created my own flyers and things with Microsoft Word, Microsoft Powerpoint, and using online platforms like PicMonkey or Canva. InDesign certainly has more flexibility than Microsoft programs that weren't built for design. But the learning curve is higher than for online platforms.
I've never gotten support from InDesign but have been able to find answers to most of my questions online.

Do you think Adobe InDesign delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Adobe InDesign's feature set?


Did Adobe InDesign live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Adobe InDesign again?


Adobe InDesign is well suited for creating custom, attractive, high-quality reports. It's not great for time saving and efficiency, so if you haven't learned the program and are short on time, it wouldn't be ideal.
