Summary

This article details Agile Documents Adobe InDesign functionality. It builds on what we learned in Word Basics - Start Here, Word Basics - Templates and Word Basics - Find and Insert. Unlike the examples detailed in Word, all the InDesign examples are in the same article. Further, this InDesign article isn't as detailed as the Word articles. Please note that, where appropriate, concepts discussed in the Word example series apply here even if they aren't explicityly discussed.

Please note that the examples described here are easily installed onto your SharePoint site. That installation procedure is described in Installing Examples.


Adobe InDesign Template Required

In order to build InDesign files, you must specify a InDesign template. The template is any InDesign document that you wish to use. It defines the style and structure of our Agile Document InDesign document.

An InDesign template tells Agile Documents to use the Acrobat document engine to build documents. If no template is specified, Agile Documents defaults to using the Word document enginge. Building an InDesign document only is supported with the InDesign engine.


Example 1: Concatenating InDesign Pages


Example 2: Injecting data into a template


Example 3: Find and Insert


Example 4: Conditional Content
