I've downloaded and used earlier versions of the developer build of InDesign for the Mac and I've completely forgotten how. Hopefully someone here can advise me what I should do and point me in the right direction.
At the header to this forum it says:
"To use the InDesign SDK effectively, you must have the InDesign debug version installed. The InDesign debug can be accessed through the Adobe partner programs. You can sign up to one of the partner programs using the partner portal. Here's a link to the Solution Partner landing page. Here's a link to the Enterprise Developer Program page."
I'm using the account through which we've established a partner program before. So here are my questions.
1) How do I search my details to see if I need to renew the partnership? We've previously had one but it could be expired and I can't tell. What sort of partner program should I get?
2) Once the partnership program is paid up, where do I go to actually download the debug build for InDesign CS6 for Mac?
3) If the above is the wrong approach, does anyone know the SKU for the debug version. We've talked to our contacts at Adobe and they haven't heard of a debug build of InDesign. The SKU might help them find the product for us.
Drop an email to the folk on the Technology Partner Helpdesk firstname.lastname@example.org. They handle the administrative side of this partner program and should be able to help you with queries about your membership and the InDesign debug.
In case anyone is also trying to get their hands on the debug build of InDesign, I'll add some points that are important.
The email address that Roddy Ide gave is a good address that has let me progress nicely. A big thanks to Roddy for the pointer.
However, recent changes at Adobe require that a person join the "Technology Partner Program" in order to get access to the Debug version of InDesign.
This is by invitation only. I'll repeat that because it's important. You can only join the Technology Partner Program if you are invited to join.
Only someone who works at Adobe can invite you.
What this means is that you should talk to your Adobe contact and ask if they would be willing to sponsor you in joining the Technology Partner Program. You can then email email@example.com with the name and contact details of your sponser so that you can join. You'll then be assessed to see if you can join the program or not.
Once you have joined then you be given access to the Debug version of InDesign.
