Question about Adobe InDesign CS2 for PC

Drag & drop function does not appear to work on inDesign CS2

I work with indesign cs2 to create galleries & the drag & drop feature does not appear to work - I get the prohibited icon come up. I use jpegs and can insert them into the template using the place function but can't drop them in. I use exactly the same version in the office and it works fine. Could it be because my laptop runs on Vista? Is there anyway I can fix this problem?

    The step by step instructions you provided did not help as I couldn't get to the check box you described - I got to customize, but there was no advanced tab - please also note - I can drag and drop images into photoshop but not InDesign CS2 does that still mean that my drag & drop function is disabled?

  • amyhoulston1 May 02, 2010

    Thanks - I have tried that, again not working. Please note it's image dragging & dropping that's not working - any other suggestions? The enable dragging & dropping function in start menu is on. If I disable UAC will that help?

    Thanks again

    Thanks - by doing some research I actually found that disabling the UAC actually worked! Thanks anyway, suggestions have been helpful.

Hello,

The problem could be that the drag and drop on your laptop as been disable and you will need to enable it before it can work.

All you will need to do is to enable your drag and drop by following the below procedure.


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Right click on Start button,
then click on Properties,
then click on Customize... button,
then Advanced tab,
in the Start Menu items list, check mark
"Enable Dragging and Dropping"


Doing this will enable your drag and drop and can now function.

Take care.

Have you tried doing the current Updates from the Adobe Support Website? Also try and see if there are any Updates through the Windows Update Website as well..

    ok, I have one more suggestion. Choose any of the image files. Right click and choose "OPEN WITH", and then click on Indesign cs2, then apply, then ok.

    If that does'nt work, you may also try and rt. click on the Pictures Folder and then Properties, Sharing, set the folder as SHARED, Apply to all folders and sub-folders, then APPLY & OK to close.

    Hope it works for you..

Hi,

In the Type Preferences, the default Drag and Drop Text Editing is set to off (unchecked) for layout view and Story editor. You should turn this on by clicking on the Enable in checkbox.

Please see the picture below.

Hope this helps.

How to use anuscript manager for photoshop cs2


Adobe InDesign CS2 is a desktop publishing program created by Adobe.
As a predecessor to Adobe and Aldus' PageMaker, InDesign is a leading solution for creating high quality print media like that seen in brochures, magazines and professionally created documents.

While not the most current version, InDesign CS2 managed to get above average reviews that still make it a viable choice for those interested in desktop publishing.
History


In the mid 1980's a company known as Aldus literally revolutionized the way printed media was created.
Before Aldus PageMaker, big machines and printing presses were used.

This new software made the process much easier and gave developers much more creative freedom.

In 1995 Adobe purchased Aldus and changed the software's name to Adobe PageMaker.
In 2001 Adobe stopped the creation and support of PageMaker and replaced it with a totally original desktop publishing program, InDesign.

Pros

Despite a few minor issues, Adobe InDesign CS2 integrates well with their other programs.
This means that you'll be able to use other popular Adobe products such as Photoshop to help create your desktop media.

According to a MacWorld.com review, many new features and menus have been copied from competitor QuarkXPress, making InDesign much more accessible to users of its largest rival.

Another new, well-received feature is Snippets.
Snippets allow you to copy specific parts of a document or image and save it as its own file.

This makes reusing the image, effect or text much easier than before.

Cons

While InDesign CS2 offers new text capabilities, they're features that have been included in Microsoft Word for years such as anchored frames, auto correction and bullet point lists.

Some features of Photoshop, such as blending modes, are incompatible with InDesign, though compatibility is touted as a key feature in InDesign CS2.

Another compatibility disadvantage is that you can only export content to the Web using Adobe GoLive CS2 so those who use other programs such as Macromedia Dreamweaver must either purchase GoLive or go without this feature
.
Tutorials

Learning new software can be difficult.
Especially such advanced software that has as many features as Adobe InDesign CS2.

On their official website, Adobe offers many tutorials and "how to" guides for their products.
To make locating CS2 specific information even easier, enter "CS2" into the search bar at Adobe's tutorial page.

http://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/topics.html

The information provided, along with the in-program tutorials in InDesign CS2 will be enough to get you familiar with and using InDesign CS2 quickly.

Purchasing

Since InDesign CS2 is an older program no longer supported by Adobe, you cannot purchase it directly from their website.

Finding the software may be a bit tricky, which is why you may want to consider a more recent version of InDesign.

If you don't want to pay the hefty price tag associated with the most current version you'll be much more likely to find the last version.

Many websites offer the next to current version, though prices vary from $99 to over $600.

Adobe indesign cs2 stopped working


Try first Uninstalling the program from control panel and reinstalling the Adobe suite after restarting the computer.

If it did not work, try doing a system restore to some times ago, before you had the problem , then reinstall CS2

If you still have problems, it may be an operative system problem.
