The future of import and export of Adobe InDesign layers, today!

CtrlLayers is a plugin for InDesign users that require a smart and clever solution for expanding usability when working with layers. Art Directors and Graphic Designers can at an early stage of a project, for example, share a layer to a new document and allow translators to start their work. Later they can import the layer without worrying about how it will be applied to the layout.

CtrlLayers is a plugin for InDesign users that require a smart and clever solution for expanding usability when working with layers. Art Directors and Graphic Designers can at an early stage of a project, for example, share a layer to a new document and allow translators to start their work. Later they can import the layer without worrying about how it will be applied to the layout.

Just like InDesign users are used to importing color swatches, CtrlLayers offers the same ability with layers from other InDesign documents. So, if you are looking for a smart and “easy to use” solution, CtrlLayers will give you new exciting possibilities.

 
Key Features:

  1. Create new InDesign documents from visible layers
  2. Import layer(s) from InDesign documents
  3. Export layers from documents
  4. Scripting support for Java, VB and Apple Script
  5. Localized languages supported: Swedish, English, German, French and Italian

 

Q&A

Q: Can the layers being imported contain graphic files or does this only work with text?

A: Yes, absolutely, layers can contain any and all InDesign elements.

Q: What happens if there are more pages in the layer imported?

A: CtrlLayers is not designed to add or delete pages, so this unfortunately will not work.
