InDesign CC (2014) support coming soon

If you installed the new InDesign CC (2014) edition that was released last week, you may have noticed that the Twixl Publisher plug-in does not appear in the Extensions menu.

Later this week we’ll be releasing an update to Twixl Publisher that provides support for the new release. In the meantime, you can continue to use either InDesign CS6 or the previous InDesign CC release.

  • One view if the user is online and entitled

Article-based workflow
