System Requirements

Twixl Support Team Updated: - Created :

    For the InDesign plug-in

    Adobe InDesign CC2019, CC2018, CC2017, CC2015 on macOS or on Windows.


    Adobe InDesign CC2015 or newer is now required for our plugins. Older versions are no longer supported.

    For the app builder application

    The Twixl Publisher application requires the latest version of either macOS Catalina 10.15.x or Mojave 10.14.x.

    For creating iOS apps

    Xcode will allow you to get a preview of your application in the iOS simulator on macOS. The System Check at startup will automatically check for the presence and offer a link to install it if Xcode is not installed.

    • Xcode for macOS Catalina and Mojave is a free download from the Mac App Store
    • In order to create app builds that can be installed on a device, or to submit apps in the App Store, you need at least Xcode 10 and need to be registered as a developer in the "iOS Developer Program" (99$/yr): Start here to enroll now.

    For creating Android apps

    • Android SDK: the Android SDK needs to be available to create Android builds. The System Check at startup will automatically check for the presence of the Android SDK and offer to install it if it's unavailable. 
    • In order to submit Android apps in the Google Play store, you need a Google Play account.

    Minimum version requirements

    Below is an overview of the different OS and app versions that are supported by Twixl Publisher version.
