    Hi, I have to prepare some corporate proposals for my clients.
    So, I downloaded a nice proposal template from GraphicRiver.net , but those are all compatible with Adobe InDesign.
    I dont have time to learn InDesign now.

    So, Im looking for some straight Mac Application, which can do this job for me.

    Do you know any such app which can do the job ?

    Word or Pages both have proposal templates available for use. Could also consider Keynote and export it in a PDF format. I could mention some other apps, but they are all going to have some kind of learning curve, plus cost money just like Indesign. Swift Publisher 3 for example.

    Hi

    Just to give a developer's perspective, personally I wouldn't spend time developing something so specific because the market would probably be so small. More likely, I'd spend time producing something more generalised which would be applicable to more people's work… and it'd probably end up sounding kind of like a word processor… so then I'd probably kick it into touch because there are plenty of good word processors out there already… So I think you'll be lucky to find an application that meets your very specific needs - although it doesn't hurt to look!

    Why not download the templates in InDesign and have a go (it's not that hard for basic usage) - you can always use the trial version for 30 days for nothing. If you can't get the hang of it then why not use it as a visual reference to create your own templates in a software that you *are* comfortable with - maybe Word or Pages?

    Good luck!
