Free Selection to PDF Script from Auckland
I’m at The InDesign Conference in Auckland, New Zealand, and trying hard to ignore the overwhelming sense of jetlag and exhaustion after canceled flights and other horrors made my trip here a little less pleasant than it might have been. But Martinho da Gloria picked me (and Sandee Cohen and Barry Anderson) up at the airport and took us to some Really Good Coffee. So things are looking up!
You’ll remember Martinho from his astonishing LayoutZone script, which lets you create “composition zones” in InDesign. Well, while we were driving, one thing led to another, and it turns out he used his prowess in exporting page objects for a new script, called Selection to PDF, which you can find on his Web site, automatication.com. I bet you can’t guess what the script does: Right, it takes any selection on your page and makes it into a PDF file. Very handy!
This conference should be great fun, as Tim Cole, Mike McHugh, Michael Stoddart, Cari Jansen, Sandee, and myself will be doing all sort of tips, tricks, and techniques. I always learn something new at these things!
