>> Recosoft is the developer of PDF2ID, the miraculous solution for converting PDF file to editable InDesign files. Install the software and you’ll be able to open (not just Place) PDFs in InDesign. Styles, tables, layers, threaded text, it all gets reconstituted. It’s amazing! The latest version, PDF2ID 3.0, is compatible with InDesign CS3, CS4, and CS5 on Macintosh and Windows platforms.
>> MathMagic, the ultimate equation editor from Info Logic, Inc., is a WYSIWYG equation editor/plug-in that lets you create inline, editable EPS equations from within InDesign (if you use the MathMagic Pro edition). It even converts equations set by Word’s Equation Editor, LaTex, MathML and MathType, to MathMagic-style equations. For InDesignSecrets listeners, they’re offering a time-limited discount of 25% off any MathMagic Pro product that’s $199US or more, until Dec. 30, 2010 (extended deadline!).
