New Version of DPS
A new version of DPS is available. It’s called Digital Publishing Solution, or “DPS 2015.” If you have an existing Digital Publishing Suite license, you’ll be able to use either the current version of DPS or the new DPS 2015 to build apps. You can decide on an app by app basis which workflow best suits your needs.
To check out DPS 2015, you can sign up for a trial at www.adobe.com/products/digital-publishing-solution.html and clicking the “Free Trial” option in the upper right corner. There is a Quick Start Guide and sample assets, and an excellent set of how-to videos by Colin Fleming. See Getting started with DPS 2015. If you have questions, go to the DPS 2015 user forum.
Creative Cloud 2015 Update
Now let’s talk about the Creative Cloud 2015 update. InDesign CC 2015 supports only DPS 2015—not DPS, so there’s no Folio Builder panel in InDesign CC 2015. If you want to create DPS folios, you need to use InDesign CS6, InDesign CC, or InDesign CC 2014. You can run multiple versions of InDesign on your computer. InDesign CC 2015 supports only the new version of DPS—DPS 2015.
In addition, the “Folio Overlays” panel is now called the “Overlays” panel in all versions of InDesign.
By default, if you choose to update InDesign, InDesign CC 2015 will replace the previous version of InDesign unless you do something. Specifically, you should go into Advanced Settings and deselect the “Remove old versions” option.
Installing Previous InDesign versions
What do you do if you already installed InDesign CC 2015 and removed the previous versions? You can reinstall them without too much difficulty. Look for “Find Additional Apps,” select “All Apps,” and then click “View Previous Versions.” You can then install your InDesign version of choice to build DPS folios.
