The best way to make fractions…EVER!
I just got back from the New York InDesign User Group meeting, and I saw the greatest product for ANYONE who needs to format loads of fractions in their documents. This includes all cookbooks, hardware instructions, documentation, and fashion catalogs.
Dan Rodney, a brilliant scripter, has created a series of scripts that does much more than any fraction product out there. Don’t believe me? Go to:
and check out his proper fraction script product.
Dan has two products. The free one works just like Quark’s Make Fractions command. You select the fraction, and then apply the script. That’s fine for someone who has a limited amount of fractions to process.
But the professional product, the one he created for a major publisher, runs through a document, a story, a selection, or selected frames. It has controls that allows you to automatically format single digit fractions, double (or triple)-digit ones, OpenType, fractions with digits before, and more.
Even better, Dan is more than just a scripter, he is a real designer who has the designer’s eye to adjust weight, baseline, kerning, and a host of other attributes to make the fractions look good.
I can’t express how excited I am about this product. Go to Dan’s web site and check out the videos he’s created that show how the product works.
