Page Control 2.0 ships
DTP Tools has released the second edition of Page Control, its plug-in for InDesign CS, CS2 and CS3. The original software allowed users to fit multiple page sizes into the same document; v2.0 greatly expands on this, by for instance letting users arrange documents into vertical spreads, essential for "flip-up" documents like calendars. Pages can further be individually rotated, allowing for combinations of portrait and landscape layouts.
Content within a page can also be rotated or resized as necessary, with the option of anchoring non-resized objects to the sides, center or corners of a page. Size information is available in the slug area or as a report table; lastly, support for INX files has been added. Page Control 2.0 is $85 for new users, or free as an upgrade.
