News and special offers from our sponsors:
>> Em Software is the developer of DocsFlow, a plug-in for Adobe InDesign (CS5 or 5.5, Mac or PC) that dynamically links online Google Docs with InDesign layouts. The two-way 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.
>> Rorohiko has a neat little InDesign utility called LayerLifter, a free add-on that makes it easier to move items from layer to layer. If you own or purchase their APID ToolAssistant ($25), you also get to use LayerShifter, a slick way to shift all items on a particular layer. Use the coupon code INDESIGNSECRETS160 to get 25% off the APID ToolAssistant. You won't regret it!
>> Recosoft makes PDF2ID (converts PDFs to editable InDesign files) and ID2Office (converts InDesign files to editable Word or Powerpoint files). They also just announced PDF2ID Enterprise, which batch converts PDFs to InDesign and/or to the IDML format; just the ticket for automating workflows. Check them out!
