News and special offers from our sponsors:
>> 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. Special offer for InDesignSecrets: get 25% off MathMagic Pro ($199 or more), enter the INDS discount code (details).
>> Rorohiko (“Slash the time it takes!”) keeps improving their so-useful Soxy utility—the latest beta version supports InDesign CS5.5. With Soxy installed, users with multiple versions of InDesign installed can simply double-click INDD files to open them, because Soxy makes sure they open in the correct version of the program. Soxy also supports file/version matching with multiple versions of Illustrator, Photoshop, and QuarkXPress, among others.
>> In-Tools is owned by the famous “Harbs” who helps out so many users here on the blog and in our forum. He and his company develop many scripts and plug-ins that are so useful for InDesign users, especially for those who are doing multi-lingual publishing (such as World Tools Pro) and long documents (such as the Power Headers plug-in we mentioned). And in his spare time, Harbs writes an engaging blog on his company site at In-Tools.com/about/blog, check it out!
