News and special offers from our sponsors:
>> Certitec, an Adobe Authorized Training Partner in the UK, offers Adobe DPS (Digital Publishing Suite) 2-day Pro and Enterprise courses in London and Cardiff. NEW for students who are funding their training themselves (not from a company): a 25% discount on any course when you quote "InDesign Secrets." (If you forget to say "InDesignSecrets" then you only get 20% off.) That's a great deal!
>> Rorohiko: They just keep making ePubCrawler better, and it's still donation-ware! ePubCrawler is a Fixed Layout ePub Assistant for InDesign. The highly-customizable script takes an InDesign document and converts it to a fixed-layout ePub (think kid's books, cookbooks, photography books, etc.) ready to upload to your favorite reseller. This turns a job that normally takes dozens of hours into minutes! Watch any of their six tutorial videos to see how it works. For InDesignSecrets fans: anybody who donates US$50 or more now will get a free license if and when they release it commercially, like a home-grown Kickstarter!
