News and special offers from our sponsors:
>> Mag+ (magplus.com) is an efficient and affordable digital publishing platform to create apps for tablet devices straight from InDesign. In the latest version (4.0), you can now publish to Smartphones as well –including iPhone 5. The Mag+ tools are FREE to download from their website, and work with CS4, CS5 and CS6. You can use the bundled InDesign templates, and take advantage of their innovative Review button to quickly see fully-functional touchscreen previews. For more information go to www.magplus.com.
>> Rorohiko’s StoryTweaker ($99) plug-in lets editors and writers access your InDesign file’s text without needing to own InDesign or InCopy. The plug-in is associated with one InDesign seat, but allows that user to create an unlimited number of AssignmentTweaker sets, which is what the editors open and work on. The workflow is spelled out on the StoryTweaker site, and there’s a 20-day free trial available. Special for InDesignSecrets listeners.
