News and special offers from our sponsors:
>> Rorohiko (“Slash the time it takes!”) has a number of cool plug-ins for InDesign users that slash the amount of time it takes to get something done! We love FrameReporter ($29 US) because it lets you see small informational tags when you click on a frame, such as the image’s effective resolution or how many words are overset. You can even use it to name frames, and then navigate around your layout via the names. Special for InDesignSecrets listeners: Use the coupon code INDESIGNSECRETS127 in the Rorohiko.com store to get 25% off the FrameReporter plug-in.
>>
CtrlPublishing offers a highly useful plugin called CtrlChanges that lets you track text changes in InDesign CS3, CS4, and CS5, just like in Microsoft Word and InCopy. With the CtrlChanges plug-in you can see the tracked changes markup in the layout as well as the Story Editor, and you can print them too! (Two features that not even the new Track Changes feature in CS5 has.) There’s a free trial available, and listeners of the podcast get a 15% discount on CtrlPublishing’s web store if you use the coupon code CTRLOFFER5.
