Free Plug-in 'Lightning Brain StoryParker for InDesign' ReleasedHelps manage cluttered pages in InDesign (May 25, 2006)
Rorohiko Ltd, a software development and consultancy company targeting the prepress and publishing area announces the release of its 'Lightning Brain StoryParker for InDesign' Plug-In. This is the next installment in Rorohiko's growing range of free plug-ins. It is available to InDesign CS and CS2 users on Mac OS X or Windows 2000/NT platforms.
This plug-in helps a designer manage cluttered pages.
It adds a number of context menus (right-click or control-click) to various page items.
Every page item can be temporarily 'parked' - it is put aside, somewhere on the pasteboard. Later on, with a single click, it can be moved back to exactly where it came from.
Linked text boxes that contain a long story can be parked all together.
The idea is to get one or more page items out of the way quickly, for example to reach something that's underneath, without risk of accidentally moving page items and destroying a carefully crafted layout.
Parked items are initially put on the pasteboard, and can be moved around freely from there - any movement while they are parked is irrelevant and forgotten the instant they are unparked.
