Does InDesign 2022 support UXP?

I want to develop a plugin based on InDesign 2022, but I noticed that Adobe's developer documentation is for UXP and InDesign 2023. I would like to ask how to develop plugins for InDesign 2022, what are the official documents, debugging methods, and if it's possible to use 'Adobe UXP Developer Tools'?

Hi @RDI33054067w5ck ,

if you want to develop something with UXP I'd always see into the latest version of InDesign. Currently version 9.

UXP for InDesign is still in development. Therefore I'd even hesitate to use InDesign 2023. Use InDesign 2024 for this task.

Another thing I would say is choose your development stack based on the problem's needs. UXP is still under development and is being worked upon so it may or may not suit your use case. We have the following ways to create automations, enhancements for InDesign

  • Extendscript, you can create UI as well using it.
  • CEP extensions. You can use HTML/JS to create the interface and JSX(Extendscript) to interface with InDesign
  • Plugins using the C++ SDK. Most powerful tool, it can do almost anything that Adobe allows the 3rd party developers to do

As far as I know,  UXP plugins were introduced in InDesign version 18.5. So, I'm afraid, 2022 (version 17) is not an option.
