The new capture extention provides an option to detect the Color themes, Shapes, Type (Example: - Font type) present in a file and import similar color themes, shapes, and text into InDesign.

This feature helps you to change the size of User Interface, thus making it easier to navigate within the application. It helps you scale the UI like the size of tools, text size, cursor and other UI elements. The display size of Anchor points, Handles, and Bounding boxes can also be changed to suit your needs.

              Inclusive terminology

 Keyboard Shortcuts Enhancement






InDesign (17.0) replaces references to "Master Page” and any associated reference with “Parent Page”.   

  • Adobe Illustrator Shortcuts and Adobe Photoshop Shortcuts are now easily discoverable in the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog box.
  • While placing an Illustrator or Photoshop file, a message will appear at the bottom, letting you know how to enable Illustrator/Photoshop keyboard shortcuts.


Please check out this link for a detailed description of these features.
