Whenever a new InDesign release comes out, the first thing I check is whether it has new features that are interesting for print designers. Much to my annoyance that is often disappointing as Adobe only seem to care about customers that work in new media.
Another thing that bugs me is PowerPoint, more specifically its unprecise and limited design controls. For sophisticated stuff I usually switch to InDesign.
As you see I am easily annoyed, but that is what the web thrives on! The above points made me wonder how many people actually use InDesign exclusively for print, so I set up a poll that asked visitors how they use Adobe InDesign. This poll ran in August and September of 2010.
