News and special offers from our sponsors:
>> In-Tools is the developer of World Tools Pro, InDesign plug-ins that represent “the most complete solution available for composing multilingual documents including Hebrew, Arabic, Indic languages, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and more.” Company founder Harbs is also the "Guru" of PrintUI.com, which provides a number of custom InDesign Server-based solutions, like the StoreSigns.com solution we talked about in the podcast.
>> Rorohiko has a number of cool plug-ins for InDesign users that slash the amount of time it takes to get something done! In this episode we take a close look at their Mac/Windows utility called Soxy ($19US) that helps you open files (InDesign, EPS,PDF, and others) in the correct version of the program when you have more than one version installed. Special for InDesignSecrets listeners: Use the coupon code INDESIGNSECRETS162 in the Rorohiko.com store to get 25% off the Soxy utility.
