Microsoft .NET Framework version 4.6.2 or higher is highly recommended. Having an earlier version might significantly reduce PA’s performance.
Publishing Assistant 6.0 works with Adobe InDesign versions from CS2 to 2020, although features for Custom Layout (e.g. typesetting study Bibles) requires InDesign 5.5 or newer.
