Adobe released new apps, along with new features in existing apps, on November 4. Although many apps got updated, we are going to primarily focus on Adobe® Photoshop®, Adobe® Illustrator® and Adobe® InDesign®. While there are a lot of new features and enhancements, I recommend waiting to update your apps until there is some time to identify and work out any bugs, if needed.

What’s New in Photoshop (Desktop)

New features include: Cloud Documents, Improved Presets, New Object Selection Tool, Improved Properties Pane, Consistent Transform Behavior,  Smart Objects to Layer and Transform Warp.

What’s New in Illustrator

New features and enhancements include: Path simplification, auto Spell‐check, Background save and export, in‐app troubleshooting support, faster and quicker Effects and onboarding Resources.

What’s New in InDesign

New features and enhancements include: SVG import, Column rules, more Languages, variable Fonts, reverse Spell‐check, Find similar images, Adobe Asset linking, in‐app Onboarding, Data merge, removal of Flash Formats, in‐app troubleshooting support, stability and performance.

We will be taking a much closer look at all the new features during our next Quarterly User Group meeting on December 12. I strongly encourage those who are able to attend.
