- Give screen shots what annoys you.
- Did you get a basic training and are you aware that InDesign is very different to Xpress and in my opinion much superior?
as said, it's the interface NOT the program. Indesign is superior to Quark.
I have been on indesign for 11 years and throughly like it and enjoy it.
It works very well for my work.
But in terms of the way it looks, Photoshop much better / smooth
Here's the two PRINT windows side by side.
Photoshop is cleaner, I like the light/white option. indesign does not go lighter, i dont like the light grey.
It's not that light in my mind. There is a preferance slider bar, but why not go from black to white, not grey.
the boxes and information much cleaner in PS.
Photoshop seems to utilize El Capitan better.
And the buttons are softer and bigger in PS.
PS feels much more modern than indesign.
More minimal which i personally like.
I much prefer the light tool bar in PS than ID. Even though the design is similar.
Maybe the tools should be universal in their design?
Even the design of the 'ruler' is cleaner in PS.
Indesign feels more bulky. Granted I am not talking about it's function. I like it's function a lot !
But as a graphic designer I notice these things since i'm Adobe 8 hours a day.
I also attach the preferences boxes, you can see the noticable difference here in the feel.
I don't know about other Adobe products.
I am on a Mac, El Capitan, 10.11.4
Is there something you're asking for help about?
We're only users like you, trying to help others.
If you have suggestions for how you'd like things in InDesign to be changed, I'd suggest you send a feature request to the product managers since we have no control over that. The product managers will not see your postings here.
Photoshop is the only Adobe app to receive the interface overhaul so far. I presume they intend to apply it to whole suite eventually.
I know it backwards dont need help just commenting on the design.
i was asked to.
I hope so !!
Apple's 'San Francisco' font, which seems to be used in Photoshop, was only released in the last year or so, so I'd forgive Adobe for not making a UI overhaul incorporating it their top priority.
I agree Danny.
although it's not the font to me.
more white, more space, more minimalism
im sure they will update
Different strokes for different folks, I guess... one of the reasons I stick to Photoshop CS5 is because I really don't like the UI on newer versions. (I don't need any of the new features; in fact, I could probably do my job just fine with Photoshop 5 -- not CS5, but version 5 from the mid-90s).
I suspect eventually the UI for InDesign and Illustrator will move in that direction... and I'm not going to like it.
