Get ready to meet Adobe InDesign CS4! On Tuesday, October 28, we're bringing back Noha Edell, a Business Development Manager at Adobe Systems, to demonstrate the new features of this exciting release, including:

* Many interface improvements
* Live Preflight
* Customizable Links panel
* Conditional text
* Cross-references
* Interactive document design with SWF file export
* Page transitions in SWF and PDF files
* Smart Guides and Smart Spacing
* Spread rotation
* Smart text reflow

And much, much more! Please join us for this opportunity to evaluate the InDesign CS4 upgrade in-depth.

Keith Gilbert has chosen the "One Big Feature" from each of the other programs in Creative Suite (Bridge, Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, and Flash) that is most likely to affect InDesign users. He will demonstrate each of these individual features in a quick 20-minute tour at the end of the evening.

Don't worry -- we're not abandoning our roots. In future meetings, we'll be back to the "business as usual" of exploring and learning with our favorite tool and seeing how it best fits in with others to achieve our best results. We realize that people upgrade their software on different schedules, and we will continue to provide information and inspiration for all versions of InDesign -- what we've got as well as what's ahead.
