We’ve written a few times here about Marc Autret’s cool Wordalizer script that allows you to build word clouds right in InDesign. And now Wordalizer has been updated for 2015 with several handy new features.
Wordalizer now includes options for four new cloud shapes (bringing the total number of shapes to 12):
38 new color themes:
the ability to detect a word list (including weights that determine word sizing) from text in an InDesign document:
and a new control that allows you to make word clouds that fit a specific space in your layouts by choosing a width-to-height ratio
Wordalizer Pro (Mac and Win, CS4-CC 2014) sells for €29.00, and you can of course download a try out version to get the hang of it and decide if it’s worth the investment.
