News and special offers from our sponsors:
>> In-Tools is owned by our friend Harbs, who helps out so many users here on the blog and in our forum. In this episode we talked about his company’s awesome Reflective Objects plug-in ($39 US), which lets designers specify “align to/away from spine” for objects as well as paragraphs without having to make them anchored objects. If you’ve every had the layout of a left-facing page turn into a mess when it became a right-facing page, this plug-in is for you!
>> Rorohiko has a number of cool plug-ins for InDesign users that slash the amount of time it takes to get something done. We love their handy (and free!) plug-in called “Like Finds Like.” It lets you select an object, then tell InDesign to select all the other objects on that page or spread that share the same fill or stroke or frame type or width or … you get the idea. Check it out! Meanwhile, you can support Rorohiko by buying one of their commercial plug-ins, such as the wonderful TextExporter ($19 US) that we talked about in the last episode … it’s the ideal add-on for anyone who needs to repurpose text from their layouts. You can still go to this special URL: http://www.rorohiko.com/indesignsecrets139.html in the Rorohiko.com store to get a “10 pack” of TextExporter for only $109 instead of $149.
