comment How do you scale a vector image to equal a measurement in inches, in illustrator CS3?
@Julie Select all the stroked paths and use Object > Expand Appearance to turn the strokes into shapes. Then increase the size. I suspect you would need to do this anyway. As joojaa says, NC equipment will follow the path and ignore the width of the stroke unless strokes are converted to shapes.

comment “Inverted” corners in Rectangle
Great question! This is one of those things that's so nicely hidden, and so awesomely geeky, it can completely baffle anyone.

The Smart Object approach works well on your test file. Just remember to create the Smart Object, duplicate it, then apply the masks.

comment Is it possible to reference two anchor texts hyperlinks for the same paragraph in Indesign
I've expanded the answer. I suspect you're choosing "Paragraph" instead of "Text Anchor" in your workflow.

comment Photoshop CC Generate Ignores “Layer Mask Hide Effects” option
I've updated the answer. Still not entirely clear to me why you have the issue, because I can't reproduce it, but I've suggested other ways to approach this workflow that bypass the problem anyway.

comment Numbers and Sections Options altering layout upon changing page number
Not unless you specifically export spreads (a handy way to do foldouts, which is what you're thinking of, but not the only case). I've not come across confusion with it, once it's understood. On the other hand, I'd also never put an even numbered folio on a recto, even in a pamphlet. :/

An alternative is to turn off "Allow Document Pages to Shuffle" after doing your Step Zero. This creates the same result.

comment Is there a color scale for perceived color on different surfaces?
The Pantone formula is an ink recipe that produces a specific color on a standard substrate. The swatch color is the Lab definition of what is produced by that recipe on that substrate in standard viewing conditions. The Lab numbers show in the Info panel in InDesign when the swatch is selected. The Pantone website has more information. See also the Natural Color System (NCS) website for more understanding of how color works.
