News and special offers from our sponsors:
>> In-Tools has a very cool plug-in called Running Headers which does variable headers, multi-line headers, chapter headers, and more. Special deal: If you can come up with a Running Heads situation that this plug-in can't handle, they will give you a free copy or apply the cost ($59 US) to any other plug-in they sell! That's confidence. As always, InDesignSecrets fans can get $20 off the price for either one of In-Tool's InDesign plug-in bundles, InBook or InSefer, (both of which include Running Headers) if you purchase from this special page on their site. The full list of plug-ins bundled in the packages is here.
>> Rorohiko (aka Lightning Brain) has a number of cool plug-ins for InDesign users that slash the amount of time it takes to get something done! For example, FrameReporter ($29 US) 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 INDESIGNSECRETS111 (that's "one one one" at the end) in the Rorohiko.com store to get 25% off the FrameReporter plug-in.
