Utilities provided for doc analysis, color finding
DTP has released Blatner Tools, a suite of 12 plug-ins for Adobe InDesign. An included utility allow users to analyze documents for application of character and paragraph styles, while another tool finds colors such as spot colors inside placed graphics. An Extras menu provides access to scripts, or users can compare styles and remove unwanted text formatting from entire documents.
The History Lite plug-in features a simplified Undo/Redo panel, while AutoPage allows text frames to extend and thread to new pages. Other utilities are available for text formatting, keyboard shortcuts, and error detection.
Blatner Tools requires InDesign CS3 or CS4 and can be downloaded directly from the company for € 109 (~$160 USD).
