ALAP Ships InDesign Plugins
New publishing tools include ItemMarks, InPrint and Nudge
A Lowly Apprentice Production (ALAP) has started shipping three new page
layout and publishing tools, as well as an update to InBooklet. InBooklet
is an Adobe InDesign plugin for page imposition. The new version adds
expanded printing capabilities to allow 2-up printer spreads and 3-up
and 4-up consecutive pages from Adobe InDesign. InBooklet allows users
to impose pages from a single InDesign document with full control over
margins, gaps, bleed, creep and crossover traps. InBooklet 1.01 is a free
update from 1.0.
plugins coming from ALAP include ItemMarks, InPrint and Nudge. ItemMarks,
a plugin for Adobe InDesign, allows users to create a range of crop marks,
color bars, registration marks and text slugs on an individual object.
InPrint is a tool for converting InDesign objects or pages
into formats for Web or print applications. It allows users to marquee
an area or the whole InDesign page and save the selection as a file or
print the selection. InPrint supports saving files as Acrobat 4.0, EPS,
Pre press File, CompuServe GIF, Scitex CT, TIFF and JPEG.
Finally, Nudge is a plugin for Adobe InDesign that provides the user with
a palette to nudge items in eight directions. Rotation of items can also
be accomplished in clockwise and counter-clockwise directions.
InBooklet, ItemMarks and InPrint run $49.99 each. Nudge (also called NudgeIt)
runs $39.99. All plugins are available for Mac and Windows. For more information,
