Hi all,

I'm in an "Adobe shop" and we use Creative Suite 2 for all our
documentation (the decision was made prior to my coming on board). I
enjoy the ease with which we can integrate photos, vector graphics, and
page layout in the suite. I have not yet created any single documents
that are over 30 - 35 pages in length, so I haven't experienced any
"long document" problems with InDesign.

At a previous employer we used Adobe Photoshop and received lots of
literature when Creative Suite came out. If I recall correctly, Adobe
said outright (or at least strongly implied) that InDesign was intended
to combine, merge, supplant, and replace the best elements of Frame and
PageMaker. So I believe David is correct in his assessment that
InDesign will eventually be Adobe's single answer for all document
creation from flyers and CD covers to multi-volume hardbound
encyclopedias and everything in between...
