Lightning Brain LayerLifter
Lightning Brain LayerLifter adds a layer context menu to page items.
Lightning Brain LikeFindsLike
Lightning Brain LikeFindLike helps you quickly select similar items that are scattered over a page or spread. Instead of having to Shift-click-click... to select some scattered frames of the same type, you can now select a single one and use this tool to select all the other similar frames in one go.
Lightning Brain TextStitch
Lightning Brain TextStitch helps the user reduce the number of clicks needed to thread and unthread multiframe text flows. Two threading methods are provided: Quick Stitch for threading frames in a user-defined order with a single mouse click per frame, and Auto-Stitch for fully automated threading of loose frames.
Lightning Brain ClipAThing
The Lightning Brain ClipAThing plug-in can access and apply embedded clipping paths from images placed in an InDesign document. ClipAThing can either scan your InDesign document or the current selection, find embedded clipping paths (such as those created in Adobe Photoshop® software), and apply these clipping paths in InDesign.
Lightning Brain ChatterGoofy
Lightning Brain ChatterGoofy emulates the functionality of the well-known Jabberwocky XTension in QuarkXPress. Compatible with Jabberwocky, it accepts exported Jabberwocky sets.
Lightning Brain ImageLibraryLoader
This plug-in allows users to select a folder and automatically fill a floating palette with any images it contains. Using ImageLibraryLoader for managing the images is much faster than attempting to place the images using conventional means, like placing them or using Adobe Bridge.
Lightning Brain Color2Gray
Lightning Brain Color2Gray allows you to convert placed color bitmap images to grayscale without modifying the original color image. The original image is not changed and remains in color, yet it is output as a grayscale image.
Lightning Brain Text Exporter
The Text Exporter plug-in allows users to export all the stories of an InDesign document into a single file. The features include:
- Export in three different file formats: Rich Text Format, InDesign Tagged Text, and text.
- Export stories belonging to a specified page range.
- Exclude stories on master pages.
- Exclude stories on the pasteboard.
- Exclude stories based on their number of characters.
- Sort stories based on their position on the page.
Active Page Item Developer Toolkit
Lightning Brain StoryParker
Lightning Brain StoryParker helps to manage cluttered pages. Every page item can be temporarily "parked," that is, put aside, somewhere on the pasteboard. Later on, with a single click, it can be moved back to exactly where it came from.
Lightning Brain Sudoku Generator for InDesign
If you're publishing a newspaper, magazine, or newsletter, this plug-in will enable you to generate one or more Sudoku puzzles directly in an InDesign CS or CS2 document — for example, for a puzzle page or to generate whole booklets of Sudoku puzzles. You're in control of the look and feel of the generated puzzles — and the generator takes care of actually building them for you.
Place and Scale
With Place and Scale, automatically scale placed bitmap images (photographs) up or down when placing to exactly match a preset output resolution.
Color2Gray allows you to convert placed color bitmap images to grayscale without modifying the original color image. The original image is not changed and remains in color, yet it is output as a grayscale image. The gray image will only render on the black (K) plate.
Sudoku Generator allows you to generate one or more unique new Sudoku puzzles in an InDesign document and to generate corresponding solution pages as well — ideal for automatically generating Sudoku books.
The TextExporter scripted plug-in saves all stories of an InDesign document into a single output file. Supported output file formats are Rich Text Format (RTF), InDesign Tagged Text, and plain text.
This is a very simple tool that allows you to do two things:
- Maintain a time stamp in a text frame, to be automatically updated on every save of the document in a designated text frame.
- Maintain an automated log of file changes to an InDesign document in a designated text frame.
