you can speed up the download by making a cup of tea and watching the kettle ;)

Indesign CS3: table styles. And from a quick view: nice interface on the palettes.

Been playing with aiCS3 today. I've put through 3 old files from the packaging side.
Placed DCS get split into little bits (takes ages) when going to PDF but no sign of white lines, yippee.
Placed montone EPS (and cmyk EPS) no longer get split when going to pdf.
You can add colour to a greyscale .psd along with assigning transparency.
I'm sure I'll find it has broken some things later but at the moment I'm  ;D

Didn't know that was a known issue in CS2 before i've read your post, Glenn. Coincidence or not: just the other day we encounterd the exact same problem, now I know what to do :-)

Not much time to play with ID CS3 up to yet (have to now: 24 days left on my personal Prod. registration).
As mentioned below by me, simple things first: I really like the popup-palettes, saves also on a widescreen. Improved selections, dragging frames/placing speed etc. (on a Powermac G5). Tablestyles can save huge amounts of time.

Something I noticed: high quality display performance in CS2 documents (as set in application prefs) are not retained in CS3 ?
