    Need more info  ·  Anonymous responded

    Hi All,

    Can you explain how this would be used, is the end goal to find a some stuff restricting the search to Tables, or is it something else. It would really help if you can share how you plan to use this new GREP code for tables.

    Thanks
    Javed

    I think the problem is more generic… in the @ menu (in Find/Change), there is a Markers submenu with many different things people need to search for in Type, including "anchored objects." You should add "Tables".

    This would be very helpful because if you have many tables in your document, you may want to use Find/Change to find them, one at a time.

    It would be even better if you could use Find/Change to search for all the tables and then apply a table style to them! :-)

    Kris wrote a free plug-in for this years ago… I haven't tested it in newer versions: https://www.rorohiko.com/wordpress/indesign-downloads/likefindslike/

    Sorry @inAdobitably, I clicked accidentally on the page and flagged your post as inappropriate! Oops… Adobe, please remove that flag.

    I like the idea of adding features to the Touch Bar… but what features do you think they should add?

    Note that you can Option/Alt-drag the page and drop it where you want (in the Pages panel).

    I disagree with this. A line is just a path, and a path can have a fill. If I later turn the line into a curve, I may want it to have a fill.

    If you don't want a line to have a fill, then just ensure the Fill is set to None BEFORE you draw it. Deselect all objects on the page and set the fill to none (or press D to set it to the default, which does the same thing), then draw the line.

    This DOES already exist for printing. Select the pages you want in the pages panel, then right-click on one of the pages and choose "Print Spreads" from the context menu. It simply opens the Print dialog box and pre-fills the Range field for you.

    I agree it would be great to add "Export Spreads to PDF" to that context menu.

    Just a reminder that there are commercial products that can convert PDF to INDD files, including PDF2ID from Recosoft and PDF2DTP from Markzware.

    While it seems like Adobe should be able to simply "add" this feature to InDesign, it's far harder than you might at first expect, especially for untagged pdfs. For example, many (most?) PDF files do not have any inherent sense of structure, so they don't say "this is a story, this is a sentence…" In some cases, it's not even clear what is a single word in the PDF vs a bunch of unrelated letters on the page. The software has to "look" at the page or pages and make assumptions. Some of the third-party companies have been doing this for a decade or more, and their experience helps.

    In response to someone who said PS might be better than ID at doing this, I reply:

    InDesign and Photoshop show virtually the same data in virtually the same way. As long as High Quality Display is enabled in InDesign, it looks the same. (There have been times I’ve been zoomed into an image when I’ve lost track of which app I’m in!)

    Remember that Photoshop is ALSO showing you a proxy-image at any zoom level other than 100%/Actual Size. I agree that it may be hard to get 100% size in InDesign (because the image has been scaled), but I believe the image-rendering quality in InDesign is plenty good enough to do sharpening for print (which is always a crapshoot anyway due to the vagaries of half toning) and on-screen output (which is also a crapshoot, due to the myriad of devices the document will be displayed on).

    InDesign can convert all RGB images to CMYK when you export a PDF. That is the best time to do it. For more information, see: https://indesignsecrets.com/import-rgb-images-indesign-convert-cmyk-export.php
