Making Kindle books just got easier. Today Amazon announced the Beta Version of Kindle plugin for Adobe’s InDesign, a common software for designing books.

The new plugin tool will let publishers convert Adobe InDesign files directly into Kindle books. Designers and publishers can take existing print-ready files and create Kindle books using the tool.

The eBook version will maintain the font styling, text alignment and paragraph alignment of a print book’s design. In addition, designers can use the tool to add links within the book.

The plugin is a free download for InDesign and works with Adobe InDesign version CS4, CS5 in Windows (XP, Vista, 7) and Mac (OS 10.5 and 10.6).
