CopyFlow Gold for InDesign CS6 - 1.07

We have added a Clear Overrides menu item to this version of CopyFlow Gold.

It has two uses:

i) Users round-tripping text in the RTF format who export nicely styled text (with no typographic overrides) have found some typographic attributes set as overrides once the Adobe RTF filter has finished importing the text.  Clear Overrides provides  a quick way to clean up these formatting errors.

ii) In some scenarios excessive typographic overrides need to be removed before translation to the improve 'segmentation' for machine assisted translation. Clear Overrides simply clears all the typographic overrides on a designated portion of an InDesign document - leaving only the styled formatting in effect. This is a first step in better segmentation for all the CFG formats.  More details...

AboutMyDoc - reports on InDesign CS6 text.

AboutMyDoc helps an InDesign operator quickly determine a document's complexity and size.  AboutMyDoc produces a quick report in your web browser about an InDesign  document’s text and totals the word count. It should be very useful for evaluating or estimating jobs in pre-press houses, translation houses and for others who re-purpose InDesign documents for eBooks, the web and other purposes. The application is highly configurable and allows or disallows the inclusion of text in various InDesign elements -- notes, tables, footnotes,etc and can optionally include text on hidden layers, in off page frames or in hidden conditions.

AboutMyDoc’s reports can be produced in a compact or detailed format. Text in stories, tables, footnotes, text variables, in conditions, index topics, and notes can all be reported on. Since the report is in an html file it can easily be restyled by replacing the single css style sheet.

$19.95 - available for InDesign CS6 from Adobe Exchange :

GoMakeStyles cleans up InDesign text

We have now have an new extension for Adobe InDesign CS6. On sale for only $49.95

GoMakeStyles cleans up arbitrary typographic overrides by replacing them with paragraph and character styles. It first determines the optimum paragraph styles, then the simplest character styles to apply. New styles are named so their differences are apparent. Any existing styles are left in effect and applied where possible. The creation of new styles is kept to a minimum, so the program will not make more styles than are needed. Once GoMakeStyles has run all typographic formatting is accomplished via styles.
GoMakeStyles is a useful tool for all InDesign users. It is extremely helpful when cleaning up document text before re-purposing for other eBooks or other media, upgrading or translation.
GoMakeStyles is available for trial and purchase from here on Adobe Exchange.
If you like to see this extension available for other version of InDesign - send us an email.

Troubleshoot InDesign Documents

I came across a great page on the Adobe site the other day about troubleshooting problems with InDesign and wanted to share it here. Saving to IDML and then re-importing the IDML into InDesign has always been a favorite of mine, so I was glad to see it listed. But they had many more ideas as well.  Here's the article: Troubleshoot Damaged InDesign Documents. Well worth reading.
