INDD is an acronym for In Design Document. Files that contain the .indd file extension are most commonly used by the Adobe InDesign desktop publishing software application.
The InDesign software is used for the professional layout of newspapers, magazines, books, brochures and other printed materials. Adobe created the INDD file format for its InDesign CS2 software application and was intended to be a competitor to Quark Express.
Adobe InDesign files contain advanced typography, graphics, page content, formatting information and other layout-related options that are required for desktop publishing projects.
Files that are created in the INDD file format can also be exported into the PDF file format.
