This Week in InDesign Articles, Number 41

Yet again, it’s time for another installment of This Week in InDesign! I’m pleasantly surprised that no one has given us grief for this really not coming out weekly, but rather whenever-it-works-out. Of course, virtually no one has ever mentioned that the Obscure InDesign Feature of the Week-eek-eek (in our podcast) is more bi-weekly. So there you go… we’re time challenged.

Whatever the case, here are some great links you should know about!


Great Articles


  • I was really pleased to see that the iPad app GoodReader has been updated in an important way: Now buttons in PDF files that you create in InDesign appear to work properly when you view them in GoodReader. Yay! (I don’t think I’ve seen it work in any other iPad apps yet, so this may be a first.)
  • Cari Jansen continues her articles on making epubs and such with this one on controlling breaks in content.

  1. David, thanks so much for the link. I don’t mention InDesign in the blog post on negative space in book design, but I think you can tell from the screen shots that that’s where these books are all created.

  2. Ah yet again well done David, the Page Border script is a great addition to my script collection, although I have requested a possible addition to this script by having it first run itself then to continue on and add the Cropmarks.applescipt.
    Every job I do has to have a page border and crop marks added to it, page border so customers and see clearly the size of there job and crop marks for the printers.

    Whenever it works out is fine with me, love reading these little articles of yours.

  3. YES! Finally a new PageBorder script. I have used one in previous versions of InDesign, but was left stuck without after upgrading to CS5. Mind you, it looks like this script has a few more controls. Thanks Marc!

  4. I note that Badia has just released an update to their free PageFrame plugin which now works with Indy CS5. It allows you to set where you want the frame (page or spread), the width and the style.

    Nice alternative to PageBorder, although it doesn’t allow you to pick outside, centre or inside.

    On the other hand, with this one you can set the colour from within the plug.
