Here is the entire video of our Webinar, "The Insider's Guide to InDesign Server."
The new Silicon Designer is scheduled for release in January of 2020. We are very happy with the state of the product and its direction. Silicon Publishing people are fresh from the Adobe MAX conference, where David Blatner showed Designer in one of his InDesign presentations, so we had a webinar to show the things we thought were cool at MAX and the state of our product, which has seen steady advances over the past two years.
Following is an overview of the webinar along with links to related information.
How do I keep previous versions of an Adobe CC application as I install the new one?
What is the trick? On install, uncheck "Remove old versions". That's it! And you'll keep your older versions of InDesign (or Photoshop, or whatever).
You can also enable auto-update and tell it to keep your old versions.
How do I get back a previous version of an Adobe CC application that was unintentionally removed?
This option is a little less hidden than it has been in the past. It really is quite simple:
Silicon Publishing and Dropbox partner to improve workflows for graphic designers everywhere.
Nine years ago, Silicon Publishing stumbled into an opportunity to connect Adobe InDesign to remote assets in a very powerful and efficient way. Through the work of our developers, several of whom were part of the original team that built Adobe InDesign, we were able to make a very direct connection from InDesign to remote assets via URLs. Since that time, InDesign DAM Connectivity has become a significant part of our work.
While other approaches rely on technologies such as WebDAV, which is known for latency and headaches, our direct approach has proven itself to be far more efficient, and is now the way that most leading DAMs handle such connectivity. We have over 25 DAM partnerships so far, with more on the way.
This post talks about 10 of the DAMs we've encountered, which happen to represent a great cross-section of the DAMs out there today. First, I will share an overview of what DAM is, heavily borrowing from the wonderful work of DAM guru Theresa Regli, whose book Digital and Marketing Asset Managment: the Real Story about DAM Technology and Practice is an essential guide for anyone in this space.
