Recosoft’s PDF to InDesign Converter Gets Considerable Upgrade
PDF2ID, a tool that enables Adobe InDesign users to convert PDF files into InDesign files so that they can be accessed and edited with the Adobe product, has had both its Standard and Professional editions upgraded to version 2.0.
With the new version comes over 200 additions, plus support for Adobe InDesign 4. This makes PDF2ID the only PDF converter available for InDesign. PDF2ID integrates fully into InDesign, using the standard Adobe InDesign interface. This makes conversion from PDF to InDesign simple and straightforward and, according to Recosoft’s site, produces high quality reproductions of PDFs, complete with automatic formatting of text into paragraphs and character styles. PDF2ID also converts non-text PDF features completely. As Recosoft’s site explains:
As part of the conversion process, PDF2ID also transforms gradients in a PDF file to an equivalent gradient in InDesign, applies clipping paths to images and sets the appropriate InDesign property. Furthermore, it converts text that is on a path to an equivalent InDesign representation. Finally, transparencies and graphics transformations such as rotations, shearing and scaling are also converted to an equivalent InDesign data type.
If you’re a frequent user of InDesign, PDF2ID may well be an essential tool for you, streamlining the process of adding PDF files to your InDesign project. PDF2ID Standard edition starts at $299.99, while the Professional edition will cost $399.99, and is available for both Windows and Mac platforms.
