Indesign has supported PDF/X-3 for a while and Apago's PDF/X Checkup plugin for Acrobat shipped over 2 years ago. PDF/X-1a is widely used in the United States. PDF/X-3 isn't.

    I thought that only InDesign CS had PDF/X-3 support?
    InDesign CS is a pretty recent addition to their lineup.

    No, it is true

    To clarify:


    Indesign 2.x does not support direct to PDF/X-3. ID CS does.


    Scribus has had this since 0.9.5 - 02 Jan. 2003

    See: http://web2.altmuehlnet.de/fschmid/ChangeLog


    At that time, neither Acrobat 6, nor ID CS were released. So yes, Scribus was the first DTP/layout app to support PDF/X-3
