Cool Pie Charts Script for InDesign: Claquos 2
Indiscripts fait quelques-unes des écritures du monde cool InDesign! And if my amazing ability to speak French doesn’t wow you (thank you, Google!) then this beta of a new script from M. Autret at Indiscripts will.
Some years ago, Claquos (which, I’m pretty sure translates as, “I bet I can write a script that will make you go ‘ooh!’ “) came out, enabling InDesign users to make very simple pie charts. I thought it was nifty, but today — oooh la la — the public beta of Claquos 2 arrved on the scene. The public beta is currently free, though I would assume that it will require a small fee when the final version comes out.
When you run the script, you get a dialog box offering a number of pie-chart features:
Then, when you click OK, the script builds a chart for you:
Yes, those are all InDesign objects, so you can recolor them, move them, edit them, and so on.
I don’t know about that “ring” look around the edge of the pie chart — is that a European thing? — but of course it is editable to the point of disappearing entirely.
Check out the script and let me know what you think. More importantly, let Marc know! Enjoy.
