I am writing to you as a long-time user and enthusiast of your software, specifically Adobe InDesign. I have a request and I believe it may echo the sentiments of many other designers in my field.
A common issue I've noticed is the difficulty in viewing InDesign page layouts in other software, such as Adobe Bridge. The necessity to simultaneously view multiple documents outside of InDesign is a frequent occurrence in my work as a designer, especially when creating composite pieces such as magazines or books.
The process often involves stitching together multiple documents worked on by different teams, assembling them into a final magazine or book. It would greatly enhance our efficiency if these modular documents could be sequentially arranged directly in a tool like Bridge, while visually interacting with the actual pages.
An additional beneficial feature would be the ability to compose a book using various pages from different documents across the entire book, without the need to open InDesign. I believe such an enhancement would not present a significant technical challenge given Adobe's expertise.
I find it surprising that there is not yet a tool from Adobe to display page layouts outside of InDesign. Is it possible that this issue is being considered for future developments within Adobe? Your response would be greatly appreciated.
