New import from InDesign: convert your file and add interactivity with PubCoder.

import InDesign

Users who have already tried it know that layouts imported from Adobe InDesign to PubCoder did not match exactly the original ones. This was very frustrating, so we decided to completely reset the import feature from Indesign. We are very proud and satisfied of the excellent results.

The new import exploits the new functionality of the fixed-layout exportation, which is available in the latest version of InDesign Creative Cloud. This functionality is specifically designed for a conversion rather than a creation work.

Please consider that software created for digital and for traditional print (which many files from InDesign were created for) follow different rules. In particular, digital devices have severe limitations in redirecting some features which are taken for granted in print: spacing between letters, fonts and texts placed on a curve are in many cases not reproduced correctly in a digital form. Nonetheless, we wanted to meet your expectations and give you a layout that matches your InDesign file.

For these reasons this feature will only be available for the Enterprise license users. If you are a Base or Pro user you will have to create a layout from the beginning, importing every single asset.

If you are interested in this functionality please do not hesitate to contact us, we will be pleased to give you a quote to activate an Enterprise license.
