The recent InDesign CC 9.2 update adds several new and improved features to the application. Changes have been made in the following areas:

Typekit Desktop Fonts

Creative Cloud subscribers who are using Typekit fonts can easily find missing fonts, filter and browse through existing fonts, and add new fonts by clicking the Add Fonts from Typekit button in the Type menu. Users no longer need to use the Creative Cloud Desktop app to sync them on their computers.



Adding, editing, and managing hyperlinks in InDesign is now much simpler. Select text, and with a right-click gesture, you can create a hyperlink with a hyperlink character style (blue and underlined) or edit an existing hyperlink. The Edit Hyperlink dialog no longer defaults to the Shared Destination link but now automatically indicates the type of link being edited. Managing hyperlinks is much more streamlined in the new Hyperlinks panel, which now includes traffic lights to indicate URL availability, page numbers, and a refresh button.


EPUB Exports

EPUB export enhancements include the ability to create footnotes that can be viewed in  pop-up windows. Text color, tables, and nested styles are exported with a closer representation to their original design. The CSS handling of InDesign objects, images, groups, list types, and text alignment has been improved.  InDesign now supports EPUB  creation for Japanese and Middle East markets as well.

Bug Fixes
  • Cross-reference performance has been improved.
  • Recent Document lists and Color Theme settings will not be deleted or changed when updates are applied.
  • The document status bar displays the active preflight profile.
  • Text selection/highlight behavior has been restored to reflect CS6 behavior.
