I enjoy playing the banjo and hunting caribou in my back yard. Every year I take a trip to the moon where I collect moon rocks to make into jewelry. When I am not doing this, sometimes I program.

comment Inkscape: how to manage sets of layers
Wray, thanks for the insights. Having done a bit more research after posting my question, you're right that it's not something Inkscape supports out of the box. It is definitely possible given Inkscape's SVG file format though. I've managed put together a crude Python extension that does what I need. I plan on cleaning it up a bit, and then I will post some links to it here. Hopefully it will save other some pain!

comment How can I automate the process of cutting intricate shapes out of paper?
I have a MH-871 from US Cutter. It's a low-end machine, to be sure, but it will cut through thicker paper. I've used on folders to cut larger-sized shapes with acceptable results. You're not going to get fantastic quality on a cheap machine like this.

comment Is there an easy way to handle minor content changes in InDesign?
Could be, there may not be a good way to do it in InDeisgn. There is a feature in Fireworks that makes what I requested really easy, and for me, it would be better than managing multiple documents with only 1-2 words changed.

Yeah, for what it's worth - layers could work for some spots, but there is copy inside the paragraphs where 1 word needs to be changed so layers wouldn't work in those cases..I don't think.

Scott, I have not. I've just got the document set up as two separate pages right now. The feature Text Variables looks close to what I need. I basically just want to define a variable called "Title1","Title2", etc and then manually change the value from within Indesign
