News and special offers from our sponsors:
>> myMacMac is the developer of a really neat InDesign plug-in called InDemand (see the Quicktime demo). InDemand adds an automation panel to the Mac (only) versions of InDesign CS2, CS3, or CS4 with all sorts of useful buttons and functions, such as a Repeater Grid and a Clipboard Filter. Great solution for many types of projects that require tedious formatting and arranging like catalogs and electronics ads. Use the coupon code CPN1141670880 for a 10% InDesignSecrets discount, valid until July 20, 2009.
>> In-Tools has a special deal for InDesignSecrets fans: $20 off the price for either one of their InDesign plug-in bundles, InBook or InSefer, if you purchase from this special page on their site. The InBook Plug-in Pack is a suite of plug-ins that turn InDesign into an advanced automated pagination system for laying out books.The InSefer suite of plug-ins does the same for Hebrew publications. We talked about a few of the InBook plug-ins in the podcast, but the full list is here.
>> Adobe Systems continues to show their support for InDesign users via their sponsorship of the InDesignSecrets podcast and videocast, so thanks, Adobe! They're trying to get the word out about how much time you can save if you move to the latest version of the Creative Suite, CS4. To see the Pfeiffer report we talked about in the podcast which documents the time savings ("CS4 Productivity for Design Professionals"), you can download the PDF here: http://tr.im/cs4time. It's interesting reading!
