"It is only meant for what it does well"

Publish to PDF
Great controls on typography
Good for arrangement of layout for different paper sizes and format


Its not meant for interactivity
- Don't have Hue/Saturation/Lightness control
- Cannot key in WEB color hex codes
- Buttons and other forms of interactivity are best leave for other programs. They did it much better.
- Slow in performance


It is definitely not a replacement for any interactive tools.
If Adobe wants inDesign to be more capable, make it more user-friendly, instead of adding features which other programs are better in doing.
