InDesign Version Question
on Oct 26, 2011 at 3:39:03 pm

Hello all,

My wife has written a children's book and wants to add illustrations. Seems InDesign is the ticket for multiple pages, graphics etc.

Would and older version of InDesign such as 2.0 (available on ebay) suffice to get our feet wet with this program?

Or is there a free/shareware program that has similar functions?

Thanks in advance, John

G'day

InDesign is a fantastic program. There are others, but for value-for-money, I don't think you could do better. I've not heard of any freeware/shareware that could do what you're looking for.

Version 2.00 is about ten years old, so you could have issues with compatibility with your current operating system and whatnot (??).

Personally I wouldn't go for anything earlier than version CS (the CS range are the latest versions). I'm using CS2 at home and it easily does everything you could need — unless you're looking at making your book interactive.

I expect version 2.00 would meet your requirements too, just so long as you could get it up and running.

Good luck with your exciting project.

m.

Thanks for the reply. You make sense and have helped me decide on what version to acquire.

John
