>> Rorohiko’s StoryParker is a tool for InDesign CS1-CS5 that helps you cope with cluttered pages. Park an object somewhere else (like on the pasteboard) to get it out of the way. Later on, you can easily move the page item back to its exact original position, because parked page items -remember- where they came from – you can -unpark- them, which causes them to fly back to the exact location they had before you parked them.
