What is the primary purpose of page layout software?

Page layout software holds importance in allowing a designer/ editor to utilize text boxes and visual graphics together over the course of several pages to create a publication (i.e. brochures, magazines, periodicals). Aside from allowing the designer to freely craft their work by elements derived from Photoshop and Illustrator, InDesign (a prominent software used for its page layout function) provides the functions of typographical/visual control (by manipulating color, size and shape to accommodate balancing a spread) and builds digital files that are great for commercial printing.
