News and special offers from our sponsors:
>> Rorohiko makes awesome plug-ins for creative professionals who use InDesign. Check out the latest beta of their innovative FramedWeb plug-in which allows you to import web pages and convert them into editable InDesign layouts. The beta is free, but they want to offer a deal to InDesignSecrets listeners. So if you purchase a completely unrelated — but just as awesome — plug-in of theirs called Frame Reporter (adds useful info to any text or image frame automatically), and use the coupon code INDESIGNSECRETS156, you'll get 25% off the cost.
>> Em Software just released the shipping version of DocsFlow 7.0,a plug-in for Adobe InDesign Mac or PC that dynamically links online Google Docs with InDesign layouts. The active link between the successive drafts of the text in Google Docs (free online text editor from Google) and the story as it appears in the formatted InDesign layout allows writers, editors, and designers to work, individually or collaboratively, all at the same time. For a limited time, you can purchase DocsFlow for $200, and you'll be automatically upgraded at no cost to DocsFlow Pro when it's released, which will be priced at $400.
