5.0 out of 5 stars Focusing on InDesign and long documents March 25 2007
By Michael W. Perry TOP 1000 REVIEWER
As some who writes and edits books in InDesign, many thanks for the long document features. I've got a book in progress that was designed assuming you'd add running headers and footers. Thanks for not disappointing me!

I'm not quite sure what "synchronized master pages" are. A Google search turned up absolutely no hits. But if it's what I think it is, then thanks yet again. It'll mean that I can tell InDesign to automatically apply a chapter master page to every page with a chapter heading style. That'll save a lot of hassle.

Unfortunately, there wasn't any mention of the two other major hassles of doing books in InDesign. First, while magazines and newspapers usually have their length fixed in advance, books have to grow or shrink as they're edited and proofed. I saw nothing about the new InDesign being smart enough make the page count fit the text length (as in FrameMaker). Second, InDesign users need a way to break multi-column text for a single column heading and then return to multi-column text in the same text frame. Currently, we face the misery of ending a multi-column text frame, adding a single-column frame for the heading, and then creating yet another multicolumn frame--all of which have to be adjusted when the text length changes. Number of columns should be an attribute of a paragraph and not of the frame, again like FrameMaker, the preeminent long document application.

Finally, I've seen the new user interface demoed with the Photoshop beta and love it. Thanks for getting rid of palette clutter, my #1 gripe with CS2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adobe is done again Nov. 5 2007
By Ahlam Vieira - Published on Amazon.com
It is a must have software if you are working with graphics and sound. Be prepare to invest extra in RAM for a better peformance. CS3 is a universal base program and my Mac (Intel_Base) was having problems with my CS2. Now all my Adobe native programs and my Macromedia native programs are working fine. Photoshop has some improvements as well as Flash. The Master Collection has all you need. It was a good investment.
5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best set of tools for so many jobs. Oct. 3 2010

Verified Purchase
Never could afford the entire Creative Suite when it was new, but buying a used version like this worked perfectly for me and I am already using its programs professionally. I know Photoshop, Flash, Dreamweaver & Illustrator very well as I already owned them, so I am finding the learning curve on InDesign, After Effects, Premiere & SoundBooth pretty smooth. The video tutorials are excellent. Don't buy this off of one of those web sites that tell you you can download it without a CD and that it is "preregistered". You will get ripped off with a pirate version with serial numbers that don't work like they say they will. When you buy it off Amazon or an established site you are more likely to get a legit version that can be registered and used legally.
