Enter the code INDESIGNSECRETS199 at the Rorohiko store and get the Tada QR! plug-in for $12.00 instead of $15.00. Second, they're in early beta for a new plug-in that adds an Actions panel to InDesign, similar to the ones in Photoshop and Illustrator. Record a series of actions and then play them back on another selection or page ... very cool. If you want to beta test ActionRecorder, click the link and read the instructions. (Here's a video on how it works!)
