InDesign contains a technology preview of our newest feature: Auto Style, powered by Adobe Sensei. This feature enables you to transform unformatted text into beautiful documents by applying multiple paragraph styles with a single click. Auto Style will analyze the text and automatically style headings, body copy, lists and more.

Create your new InDesign document with at least 1000 characters so that the artificial intelligence engine can analyze the text.
