SoftCare Releases Text-O-Meter 2.0 for Adobe InDesign

Text overset utility also supports InCopy 2.0 By Dave Nagel
SoftCare has released a new version of Text-O-Meter, a plugin for Adobe InDesign and InCopy. Text-O-Meter provides tools to control the length of text and text overset. It's available now for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X.

Text-O-Meter calculates the length of text in any floating palette and can automatically show or hide overset frames for the selected text flow or all text flows on the page, allowing the user to see and edit overset text. The overset text frames are also printable, so that overset text can be proof-read on paper. With InCopy, it also brings these capabilities to the Layout view. And it's designed to integrate with SoftCare's K4 Publishing System.


Text-O-Meter 2.0 is available for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X and costs abouyt $60 for the full version, $25 for the update from Text-O-Meter 1.2.9. For more information, visit http://www.softcare.de.
