Been looking for that quick and easy bridge to take you from a PDF to an InDesign document? Lucky for you, Recosoft Corporation -- the folks who brought you the PDF2Office family of products -- is shipping PDF2ID v1.0 for Adobe InDesign CS2/CS3.PDF2ID operates as a plug-in for Adobe InDesign using computing modeling technologies to recreate the intended construction of a PDF document and thus creating an editable InDesign document.
PDF2ID forms paragraphs, applies styles, extracts images, regroups graphic elements, creates tables, and recovers annotations automatically. The ultimate result being the conversion of every PDF page of a document to an equivalent page in the final InDesign document.
PDF2ID bills itself as the only PDF converter available for InDesign CS2/CS3 offering a direct, transparent, and effortless process for PDF document data retrieval and reuse in an InDesign document.
Key features include:
* Ability to convert PDF documents directly in Adobe InDesign CS2/CS3
* Complex PDF file reconstruction supporting complex abstractions such as: text on a path, gradients, transparencies, clipping paths, and mathematical transformations
* Advanced Conversion Controls including options for font substitutions, text frame reduction, annotation management, and image resolutions
PDF2ID also includes options for font substitution, text frame reduction, annotation management and image resolutions designed for fine-tuning the conversion result.
PDF2ID supports InDesign CS2 and CS3 for both the Mac and Windows platforms. Furthermore, the application is certified to run under the 32-bit and 64-bit variants of both operating systems.
Multi-linguists and non English speakers can also benefit from using PDF2ID. Aside from English, PFD2ID supports the following languages: Japanese, Chinese, Korean, and Western European-language data contained in PDF documents.
PDF2ID is available for download now at Recosoft’s online store for US $249.
While some would argue that using the Portable Data Format at all is a bad idea, the increasing ubiquity of PDF has shown no signs of slowing down. For more information about this release, visit the Recosoft website.
