In a heated discussion during the podcast, the question was debated: If you alias a spot ink to another spot ink, will it separate out to CMYK correctly? Answer: YES. David's report from his post-podcast testing (see the episode 251 Show Notes on our site for screenshots that illustrate these steps):

STEP ONE: I placed an .AI file (it could also be a PDF) that contains two spot colors (Pantone Blue, and a yellow called Pantone 114). I then applied that Pantone Blue spot color to some text in a text frame. I also created a new color that is a spot color, but defined with a CMYK value, called "MyColor 50/10/85/0".

STEP TWO: I opened Ink Manager (from the Swatches panel menu), selected the Pantone Blue and then chose MyColor from the Ink Alias popup menu. And then I selected MyColor and clicked on the icon in the left column, which means convert this color to process.

STEP THREE: When I open the Separations Preview panel and turn the View popup menu to Separations, the Ink Aliasing kicks in, converting all instances of Pantone Blue to MyColor… and also showing that MyColor is being converted to CMYK (using the CMYK values I set up when I created the color).

QUIZZLER ANSWER and WINNER:
In podcast 235, we asked listeners to email us locations in InDesign where the command "Place" appears, other than File > Place. We were looking for Library panel menu, right-click menu on images in CC Library, and the obscure button lower right on the Media panel, Place Video or Audio file. Only one person submitted an answer, and none of these were included in her email. But she wins an InDesignSecrets Keyboard Shortcut poster anyway!

>> PePcon (the Print + ePublishing Conference) is for anyone who's on the front lines of creating publications and wants to peek over their own cubicle to see how others are tackling the same challenges. In the two-day multitrack event (plus pre- and post-conference workshop days) we dive into the "how-to" and "why" of print and digital publishing in a broad and deep way, covering InDesign, HTML5, PDF, print production, iBooks Author, mobile app development, CMS's, Editorial workflows, EPUBs, Kindle publishing, and more. Each speaker provides a detailed PDF handout, and typically the final compiled Speaker Handout distributed to attendees is over 400 pages long(!). The seventh annual PePcon is in San Diego, June 5–8, 2016. Register and reserve your spot today!

QUIZZLER ANSWERS
In podcast 179, we asked listeners:
"How many ways in InDesign can you figure out the filename of a placed image without using the Links panel or Links panel menu?"
The winning entry was submitted by Jim Leonardson, InDesign freelancer in Chicago! For his prize, he chose an autographed copy of Real World InDesign CS6, which is on its way. Here is Jim's list:
  1. In the Info panel flyout menu; select File Info to see the image name in the Title of the window
  2. Hover the cursor over the link icon in the upper left corner of the image frame. A tool tip appears with the file name.
  3. In the Structure pane of the document window, flip down the Root tag, and other tags until you see the “href” and the full path name (In the contextual menu “Select in Structure”) [ED: after first applying an XML tag to the image with the Tags panel]
  4. Use the Layers panel; flip down the layer name to show the contents. The link name is shown inside angle brackets.
  5. In the Preflight panel, if there is a broken link or document profile violation the link name will be shown.
  6. Use the Object > Captions menu or contextual menu to generate a caption.
  7. Use the contextual menu, in the Graphics flyout menu select Reveal in Finder, Bridge or Mini-Bridge.
  8. If there is a caption that happens to be overflowed, it can be seen in the story editor, tagged as “Text variable live metadata caption name” [We didn't think this should count but it's interesting because it has "Story Editor" in it]
  9. In the Package dialog box, under Links and Images it displays name, type, page, status and ICC profile. [He thought of this one "while doing yard work" after we told him he'd won]
A wonderful effort, but Jim missed a few. Here are additional correct answers, compiled from all the entries we received:
  1. Add image to Library, name appears in Library preview
  2. Select image and open the Animation panel, name populates the Name field
  3. Apply any preset animation to the image to see its filename in the Timing panel
  4. Add image to Articles panel [pulls the filename from the Layers panel, see Jim's #4 above]
  5. In the File > Package dialog box, click the Show Report button, all image filenames are listed there [listen to our argument about this in the podcast — fun times!]
  6. Add an Image Name variable (Type > Text Variables > Insert Variable > Image Name) to a text frame that touches the image
  7. If the image name was included in its XMP metadata [not a default state, and not something you could do in InDesign] you could reveal it by choosing the relevant XMP field in the Object Export Options > Alt Text (or Tagged PDF) area
  8. Option/Alt-double click to Edit Original (or choose the command from contextual menu), name is revealed in native editing program. [Technically not an "in InDesign" solution but it's fairly close]
  9. Export to EPUB or HTML and look in the mark-up code [Ditto]
  10. Use a script that creates a list of filenames [see Links above]
Final note: We love that Bonnie Barrett told us in her entry that she tried to find one in CS6's Content Collector — great idea! — but, alas, no luck.

      >> In-Tools is owned by our friend Harbs, who helps out so many users here on the blog and in our forum. In this episode we talked about his company's awesome Reflective Objects plug-in ($39 US), which lets designers specify "align to/away from spine" for objects as well as paragraphs without having to make them anchored objects. If you've every had the layout of a left-facing page turn into a mess when it became a right-facing page, this plug-in is for you!  
      >> Rorohiko has a number of cool plug-ins for InDesign users that slash the amount of time it takes to get something done. We love their handy (and free!) plug-in called "Like Finds Like." It lets you select an object, then tell InDesign to select all the other objects on that page or spread that share the same fill or stroke or frame type or width or ... you get the idea. Check it out! Meanwhile, you can support Rorohiko by buying one of their commercial plug-ins, such as the wonderful TextExporter ($19 US) that we talked about in the last episode ... it's the ideal add-on for anyone who needs to repurpose text from their layouts. You can still go to this special URL: http://www.rorohiko.com/indesignsecrets139.html in the Rorohiko.com store to get a "10 pack" of TextExporter for only $109 instead of $149.
