News and special offers from our sponsors:
>> Rorohiko’s TextExporter 3.1 plug-in makes exporting text out of InDesign CS2-CS5.5 so simple! You can export all the stories in an ID file into one single RTF, plain text, or ID tagged text file, and you control how it orders the text as it extracts and concatenates it. Special for InDesignSecrets listeners: Use the coupon code INDESIGNSECRETS167 in the Rorohiko.com store to get 25% off the TextExporter plug-in.
>> In-Tools is the developer of AutoFlow Pro, an InDesign plug-in that lets you fully control the layout of both text and images by dynamically shrinking and expanding individual text frames and threaded stories using your settings. (And it’s a great solution for easy alternate layouts for DPS.) Check out their AutoFlow page for details, screenshots, documentation, and to download a free trial!
