News and special offers from our sponsors:
>> Rorohiko’s TextExporter 3.1 plug-in makes exporting text out of InDesign CS2-CS6 so simple! You can export all the stories in an ID file into one single RTF, plain text, or ID tagged text file, and you control how it orders the text as it extracts and concatenates it. The RTF Export option now supports nested styles, which InDesign’s own RTF Export does not! Special for InDesignSecrets listeners: Use the coupon code INDESIGNSECRETS186 in the Rorohiko.com store to get 25% off the TextExporter plug-in.
INDESIGN “PRODUCTION NIGHTMARES FROM THE TRENCHES” STORIES: We want to hear your stories! Send us a short (less than 3 minutes) “InDesign doc/client/user/coworker Horror Story” that we can play on the air (you’ll be anonymous) in an upcoming episode: leave us a voice message at +1-801-459-4477 to record it, or send in your own voice recording.
