Adobe InDesign Server software offers new functionality for developers and system integrators, helping them to create more powerful automated publishing solutions for a wide variety of markets and customers.

Overview and Features

Adobe InDesign Server is a robust and scalable engine that offers the ability to automate the design, layout, and typographical capabilities of Adobe InDesign. Also, Adobe InDesign can form part of an automated Adobe Digital Publishing Suite workflow.

Flexible development environment
Rigorously tested to provide a high degree of stability, it offers a flexible development environment, including support for SOAP, Java™, AppleScript, JavaScript, Microsoft Visual Basic, C#, and C++ plug-ins.

InDesign Markup Language (IDML)
Supports IDML, a new open file format that enables developers to programmatically assemble and disassemble InDesign pages using standard XML tools.

Export to EPUB
Automated export to EPUB format for automated eBook production.

Additional Features

The InDesign Server engine currently drives a wide range of advertising, catalog, editorial, and brochure publishing solutions. Most customers work with Adobe’s deep and experienced pool of development partners to deploy an existing solution or have one custom-built to meet their exact needs.

InDesign Server also offers support for Windows® 64-bit systems and the most recent versions of PDF. Developers can even integrate other new Adobe technologies, including Adobe Flex® 3 and Adobe AIR™, which enable them to create compelling online and offline rich Internet applications (RIAs).Reader source code as they become available.


Our toolkits can be licensed to software developers who embed the technology into their applications (OEM), as well as for enterprise customers looking to build applications for internal use. Technical Support and regular updates are provided via our Support and Maintenance program – this enables you to keep your application current and compatible with the latest versions of Acrobat/Reader and the PDF Specification as they are released.
