DTP Tools introduces Annotations for Adobe InDesign

updated 06:50 pm EDT, Mon July 4, 2011

Plug-in imports notes and comments from PDF

InDesign and InCopy developer DTP Tools has debuted its Annotations plug-in, which allows users to return notes and comments from a PDF copy of an InDesign document back to the original source document. Users can import notes from an entire document or just individual pages, chapters or other sections. The plug-in can match changes in pagination between the PDF and InDesign document and process PDFs exported as spreads.

Annotations import any PDF "sticky notes" the proof version had, as well as importing text edits from the PDF, allowing the user to accept or reject them on a case-by-case basis (or in bulk if preferred). It pulls in all manner of corrective note, including arrows, rectangles, text highlights and call-out boxes. It supports strikethrough text notes, text deletions and underlining from the PDF proof, which is often sent out to clients rather than the original InDesign document.

In addtion, the program can allow InDesign users to create their own "sticky notes" directly in the document (which are not exportable).

Annotations is available now as a public beta, and will sell for a price of $79 per license on final release. A 14-day free trial, which works with versions CS3-CS5.5 on both Mac and Windows, is also available.
