Martinho da Gloria’s excellent LayoutZone plug-in updated for CS5, and still free!

Martinho has updated his extremely useful LayoutZone scripted plug-in is now available for InDesign CS5, and is still free of charge.

Multi-Find/Change Now Available for Purchase

Martinho da Gloria’s Multi-Find/Change plug-in for InDesign CS4 and CS5 is now available for purchase at his website.

Seriously, if you massage and manhandle a lot of text in your daily InDesign life, and if you’re forever popping in and out of InDesign’s Find/Change dialog, this plug-in will save you a whole lot of time, effort, and errors.

If you haven’t seen it, the best way to quickly sum up the plug-in is like an iTunes playlist for your Find/Change queries. You can run lists of Find/Change operations in batches for text clean-up and anything else you like to do with InDesign’s Find/Change feature.

Adobe product expert Cari “InDesign Dundee” Jansen also did nice video demo for Martinho.
