News and special offers from our sponsors:
>> In-Tools has a number of great InDesign plug-ins, all of which were recently updated to work with CS5.5. One of the most powerful plug-in is his AutoFlow Pro ($79). It puts you in complete control of automating the flowing and reflowing of your layout’s text and images, using both master frames and non-master frames, across entire documents. It's a great solution for creating horizontal and vertical layouts of the same content, too.
>> Rorohiko is offering 50% off their SodukuGenerator ($149) plug-in until the end of July 2011; after that the discount drops to 20% off. As the name implies, the plug-in uses InDesign to create "easy" to "diabolical" level Soduku puzzles, great for any newsletter, magazine, newspaper, or even a book full of these puzzles. To get the discount, use the promo code INDESIGNSECRETS152 when you purchase it.
