Adobe today rolled out new updates for Illustrator CC and InDesign CC, introducing new features and improvements.

For Illustrator CC, Adobe is introducing a new image crop tool for manipulating embedded images, which means Illustrator users no longer need to create clipping masks to hide image content or switch over to Photoshop to crop images.

Adobe says the new feature will reduce the size of Illustrator CC files, bringing increased tool performance.

As for InDesign CC, Adobe is debuting a new user interface that's meant to be easier to navigate. Tools and panels (selection, text, pen, and eyedropper) are gaining new icon designs with the aim of creating a distraction-free workspace, and users can expect a more modern, flat look. There are also four UI themes: dark, medium-dark, medium-light and light.

InDesign CC is also gaining design-ready quick-start templates that can be obtained from Adobe Stock when creating a new document.

Man I hate it when Adobe changes the UI. It seems that by the time you get so familiar with it (inDesign, Photoshop, illustrator) that you no longer even have to think about where tools are, they "upgrade" the programs & shuffle things around making us hunt & peck to find things again like a newb. Uggg

Highly interested in testing this new crop functionality in Illustrator. I use clipping paths in all of my professional work and rely on the ability to "unmask" extranneous design elements while designing. If the new crop tool is destructive to vector paths (like the vector eraser tool), I doubt I'd be using it much. I can live with larger files.
