Here at Showcase, we find Adobe InDesign to be one of the most useful pieces of software to design Showcase slides with. InDesign has a good balance of typesetting and image-based capabilities, including robust vector support.

If you're thinking of using InDesign to create your Showcase slides, we've made it one step easier for you with some IDML templates in two different sizes.

  • The first template is 2048 x 1536 pixels, the default Showcase size. This size suits all manner of device, particularly Retina iPads.
  • Our second template is 2048 x 1152 px which is ideal for 16 x 9 HD screens.

We've added the Showcase controls (the circular buttons in the corners) on their own transparent, non-printing layer. That way you can design around them and then export a clean image when you're done!
