Acrobat's Best Friend—Adobe InDesign

Although Acrobat had finally become an alternative to Director for multimedia authoring, it was difficult to create pages that could be easily modified in Acrobat. The rich-media PDF workflow at that time consisted of creating pages in QuarkXPress, creating a PDF document in Acrobat Distiller, and then adding interactivity via Acrobat. The drawback to this workflow was that if you needed to make changes to text or graphics, you would have to return to QuarkXPress and start the process all over again!

Adobe saw the frustrations that the multimedia community was having with QuarkXPress and upgraded InDesign, its newly introduced page layout application, so that it could create print publications and author rich-media PDF—something QuarkXPress could not accomplish.
