Recosoft PDF2ID 1.0
Recosoft has announced the first version of its PDF2ID, a document conversion plug-in. The software takes PDF files and formats them for Adobe InDesign, reconstructing the original layouts by arranging styles, paragraphs, graphics and more. Users can further customize how PDF2ID does the conversion, selecting which elements to include, and whether they should use their old positioning or be imported raw. The plug-in relies on a client-server architecture, and is said to be optimized for multi-core processors. Mac OS X 10.3 and Adobe InDesign CS2/CS3 are required; the program will launch in September, but buyers who pre-order will receive a copy of the beta in advance.
