Review: Blatner Tools 1.0.1 for InDesign CS3 and CS4


This article is excerpted from the February/March 2010 issue of InDesign Magazine, #34. Buy this issue or subscribe to InDesign Magazine.

Every InDesign user has a mental list of "I wish InDesign could…" features rattling around in their heads. We wait and hope the next version will answer these wishes, but that doesn’t always happen.

David Blatner decided not to wait. He spent most of InDesign’s first decade teaching people how to get better with what InDesign has built in, but with the release of Blatner Tools -- a $149 suite of 12 plug-ins designed by Blatner and developed by DTP Tools -- David expands InDesign’s feature set and adds many productivity boosters to existing features in InDesign CS3, CS4, and even CS5, which came out after the plug-in's intitial release. [Editor's note: The plug-in suite is on sale for $99 until November 30, 2010.]
