Coming Soon to a screen near you! InDesign/InCopy CS4: Rise of the App Frame. News of CS4 is all over the place, but you can’t buy the programs yet. However, you can read and download the entire Help files for InDesign and InCopy CS4. They are free and open to the public. Yeah, it’s a little like reading the script to a movie that hasn’t been released yet. But if you’re an InDesign/InCopy fanboy/grrrl, you probably can’t wait to see how conditional text works, or whether Smart Guides are really smart (actually, they’re freaking brilliant–you’ll never use a guide again).

So download the help files, print out all 995 pages, wallpaper your dwelling with them, and when CS4 actually arrives at your workplace, you can be that annoying person ruining all the surprises for the people around you.

“Oh! Oh! Dude! Check this out! This is the part where the Button tool gets killed! And then Preflight disappears from the File menu, and like, no one knows where it went, and then it shows up in Window > Output! Dude!”

Make sure you say all this with a mouthful of popcorn. Adds to the effect. Dude.

  1. Hey Mike,

    Do you know when Adobe typically sets up the test to become a certified expert for their next version? I’m thinking of taking the test.

    Great website by the way….

  2. Thanks Michael. I don’t know specifically when the new exam will be published. It’s usually a few months after the ship date of the application. But I know this time there will be none of the problems that plagued the CS3 test with its goofy or unanswerable questions.
