The banner above this text was made with Adobe InDesign.
Yes, InDesign. The page layout tool.
InDesign Hidden Gems
While InDesign is known for print layout, it also has extensive interactive capabilities, including:
- An Easy-to-use Animation Panel
- A Timing Panel to create sequenced animation
- The ability to create different Object States that change with interaction
- Interactive actions for Buttons and Form Elements
Just because InDesign was originally conceived as a page layout tool, doesn’t mean you have to create things that look like books.
In this article, I’ll show you how use InDesign’s interactive features and the in5 HTML5 export to create a web banner.
in5 (InDesign to HTML5) makes it easy to create HTML from InDesign. You can take the HTML right to the web, or convert it into a mobile app.
The new WordPress plugin makes the publishing part just as easy!
I’ve written a couple of times about how much I like PePcon.
Somehow the team at CPN has managed to assemble a conference for 2017 that I’m even more excite about.
PePcon (the Print and ePublishing Conference) has been conjoined with conferences on key Adobe design products (InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop).
This new super conference will let you deep-dive on your favorite product(s), then get the latest and greatest on digital publishing.
This is not to be missed!
The conferences are partially spread out and partially overlapping, so they should still have that “small conference” feel where you get to interact with everyone, including speakers.
I’m honored to be speaking again this year, and happy to share my speaker’s discount code with you.

Creating hyperlinks from one InDesign page to another or to an outside site is one thing…but what if you’ve exported multiple documents from InDesign and want to connect them together? Is it possible?
Yes! It’s easy to connect multiple documents that you’ve exported to HTML using in5.
The key is using relative URLS, meaning that their paths are related to each other.
This tutorial will show you how to add a simple password to your app or Web App created with InDesign and in5 (InDesign to HTML5).
