News and special offers from our sponsors:
>> Rorohiko: They just keep making ePubCrawler better, and it’s still donation-ware! ePubCrawler is a Fixed Layout ePub Assistant for InDesign. The highly-customizable script takes an InDesign document and converts it to a fixed-layout ePub (think kid’s books, cookbooks, photography books, etc.) ready to upload to your favorite reseller. This turns a job that normally takes dozens of hours into minutes! Watch any of their six tutorial videos to see how it works. For InDesignSecrets fans: anybody who donates US$50 or more now will get a free license if and when they release it commercially, like a home-grown Kickstarter!
Quizzler Instructions: If you know the answer to this episode’s Quizzler, e-mail it (don’t post it here!) to firstname.lastname@example.org before midnight on Sunday, Sept. 9, 2012. Please put the word “Quizzler” in your Subject line. The winner will be chosen randomly from all correct responses received, and announced in the next podcast, along with the answer.

ERRATA: After the show, Anne-Marie realized her Creative Cloud rant was partially wrong, you can log on to your CC from the Creative Cloud product page (problem was her browser). But she still feels it should be much better integrated into the Adobe site.
