  1. Hi guys,

    Thanks a lot for the mention of my scripts. I really love you but I think I will be totally fond of the crew when you stop mistyping my surname :D It’s Aigon, not Aignon. ;)

  2. I might be dreaming of this – but didn’t someone come up with a metadata panel or script or something for InDesign – so you could add metadata directly from InDesign?

    The Live Caption would work perfectly if Adobe gave you the option of excluding the file extension.

    Instead, the user is left jumping through hoops.

    Anyway – nice podcast :D shows the power and the vulnerabilities of InDesign.

    I don’t think I can get a voice recording to you guys. But how about an email and one of you can put on an Irish accent and read it out :D

  3. Hi all,

    My site is being updated and most of the links are broken. Here is the “temporary” link and it will change again in a few weeks once the site is updated for good ;)

  4. There is one more thing that I wish: I wish I had a script that let me use data merge and anchored objects at the same time… basically, if I create a data merge “template” and then group it and anchor it in a text frame, I wish I could run a script that would merge the data in so that there was one anchored group per record (duplicating the anchored group each time). Possible?

  5. I guess I’m confused about your description about Adobe’s new free fonts.

    It sounded like you were using them in InDesign; but when I go to the link, I get information about Adobe’s online webfont program. I thought webfonts were a set of javascripts you included in your web pages to add different display fonts. I couldn’t find a link for a downloadable font.
