Welcome to Adobe InDesign CS4. This document contains late-breaking product information, updates, and troubleshooting tips not covered in the Adobe InDesign CS4 documentation.
InDesign CS4 system requirements are located here.
Enter the serial number you received with the software in the serialization screen when launching the application. You can enter a serial number for the application itself or a serial number for any Creative Suite product that contains the application. If you are downloading a Creative Suite product, you can enter the serial number within any of the Creative Suite components. The serial number only needs to be entered once for the Creative Suite products. The other components will recognize the serial number when they are launched.
Only components running as a trial will recognize the new serial number. If any of the components have already been serialized with a different serial number, it will continue to use that serial number until you remove the older serial number using the Help > Deactivate > Erase my serial number. Then on the next launch of the application, it will recognize the new serial number.
The serial number you purchased is for the use of the software in a specific language, and will only be accepted by a product installed in that language.
Volume licensing customers cannot purchase from a trial directly, however a volume licensing serial number can be entered in the trial product. Please contact your reseller or authorized Adobe licensing center to place an order for a volume license. To find a reseller in your area, go to http://partners.adobe.com/resellerfinder/na/reseller.jsp.

All font related documentation is online.

The Creative Suite 4 installer installs fonts into a default system font directory. Many of these fonts are updated versions of fonts installed by Creative Suite 3. If the installer finds older versions of these fonts in the default system font directory, it will uninstall the older versions, and save them to a new directory. The default system font directory is:
The older fonts will be saved in the new directory:
This new directory will also contain a file named "Read Me.html" which lists the saved fonts, and the version numbers of the new and of the old font files.
You can re-install the older fonts by deleting the new font files from the default system font directory , and moving the old files back into that directory.
The following Pr6N fonts are not installed, but are included on the InDesign CS4 product DVD (in the case of retail customers), or in the packaged download file (if you downloaded InDesign CS4 from Adobe Store). For trial customers, this additional content will not be available until after purchase.
For information on installing these fonts, see http://www.adobe.com/go/learn_fontinstall_en.
There are additional fonts on the installation disk. For information on installing these fonts, see http://www.adobe.com/go/learn_fontinstall_en.
In order to support the display of all characters of the Chinese standard GB18030 on Windows XP systems, Adobe recommends the installation of the Microsoft GB18030 Support Package. This support package will update an XP system with, among other things, fonts and input-method-editors (IMEs) to correctly support GB18030. The support package is available as a download from the Microsoft website. (#BG061690)
