New InDesign Automation book
At the InDesignSecretsLive Print and ePublishing Conference this week I did two presentations: “XML and InDesign Demystified” and “Data Publishing with InDesign”. I was amazed by the interest in these topics from many in the sold-out conference crowd.
The book is equal part lessons, reference, examples, and “try it for yourself” tutorials. While the size and scope may intimidate some, if you want to learn about automation or XML and InDesign you’ll benefit by reading at least parts of this book.
I prefer to purchase this type of book as an eBook, so I can easily search for terms and concepts. One shortcoming of the eBook version of this title is that some of the screen shots and illustrations are so low-res as to make them unusable. Aside from that, the eBook version works well with the Kindle app on my iPad.
