How much do you spend on manually repositioning objects, resizing or adjusting all frames when your layout is changing? How many times did you need to move all main blocks by a given offset on every page? Or to reset the scale of every inner image? Think about the time you lost in repeating those daily boring tasks again and again, then take a giant step in loading Equalizer 3 in your InDesign toolbox. Batch positioning and resizing in InDesign is now as easy as clicking the Run button…
Suppose you need to shift a bunch of text frames by 10mm from the central axis of your layout (10mm to the right for right-hand pages, 10mm to the left for left-hand pages). Or suppose you have to reset to 90% the height of every picture owned by your "Thumbnails" layer… over the whole document! Or imagine any other daily boring task that involves changing locations and/or dimensions of objects in a repeated way. Equalizer 3 is just a powerful tool for designers who want to save their phalanges.
Need to have a page border on your job up until it goes to the printer? PageBorder quickly creates a temporary customizable black border around the active page, or every page, of your InDesign document. The script is compatible with ID CS3, CS4, and even CS5 which allows multiple page sizes per document.
“Rotate the spread view” is a nice feature introduced in InDesign CS4. It will prevent you from getting a stiff neck when working on rotated contents such as book spine or landscape tables. Great! Now the bad news: it seems that the DOM does not provide any means to check a rotated spread by scripting. No property, no access method. So what?
