Since you tagged this adobe-indesign, yes, you can do that in Adobe InDesign, also in Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape, etc.

You can achieve this with a "marking subexpression", which are just () parenthesis where each set can be referenced later with $#. So the below GREP finds three groups of characters, then rearranges them: GREP Find: (.+ )(\[.+\])\s?(.*) GREP Replace: $2 $1$3 The 1st group finds anything up to the bracketed text, the 2nd is your bracketed text, and the 3rd ...

Yes. You see the visual basic(VB) application programming interface (API). Is not actually a VB only interface. It would be much better to call it a COM API*. Now every conceivable language that runs on windows has pretty efficient and free COM bridge (except Java). Now since COM is one of those core components of Microsoft its not terribly surprising that ...

Since you asked about third party software, here's an idea that doesn't depend on InDesign at all. The feasibility of this however might depend on your client having some basic computing abilities. If you were to use free open source software instead to create the business card layout, such as Scribus (works on Mac, PC and Linux), then your client could ...

Probably not. Baseline shift works in your current unit of measurement, points, millimeters, etc. It does that because the Baseline grid itself is defined in 'pt' or 'mm', and not in percentages. However, you can do the math with a calculator and find out what percentage you need, also, if you type in '1 pt' in the box, then go back and type in 400%, see ...

photos exported from Adobe Lightroom with an sRGB colour profile. sRGB is not CMYK. Photos should be CMYK to see color more accurately for print production. Chances are if you were to open a photo and merely convert it to CMYK, you'll see the same "dull" blacks. (And you can then adjust the photo for the desired CMYK output.) What is happening with Proof ...

Is it as simple as checking the "Copy Linked Graphics" checkbox during the packaging process? Also keep in mind that images that appear only on the pasteboard will not be included in the package.

There are two full-spread page masters in this template, and the B-Master is the one applied to all the internal pages, containing the page numbering square - once you have that page master onscreen, you can change the colour of the underlying square quite easily. hope that helps.

It's on the masterpage B (In the pages panel. Window -> pages). There you can simply select the square and change the color.

Could be that they are in the Master Pages? On your right hand-side, there is your "Pages" menu. On top you can find the Master Pages. Double click on Master A, and you'll be able to edit the number pages.

Create master pages with the different color backgrounds that you can easily drag into place. And create paragraph or character styles for the different text colors.

If the text should only be white you could use the effects-panel. select the textframe you want to have white, go to effects and change the transparency of the text to negative multiplication. If you want to have the inverted color you could also use difference (but it's not that readable). I'm afraid, I couldn't find a way to give it a specific color but ...

I will weigh on on this one as books, manuals etc have been and are my bread-and-butter in many ways, as I'm (amongst other things) a technical writer. For what you're proposing, I'd look at DTP tools like Affinity Publisher or Adobe InDesign as my first choices. FWIW, I've been an Adobe Suite user for decades, but have actively been transitioning to ...

I differ - I think it's Komika Axis - not close; I think it actually IS Komika Axis, with no alterations or tweaks at all. What Font Is | Komika Axis Hope this helps.

Here's a very close candidate: VTCSuperMarketSaleDisplay. The characteristic lower "B" bow is there very close to your banana-word. In your sample image the designer may have distorted the letters to get a "narrow type". VTCSuperMarketSaleDisplay is a trademark of the VTC Vigilante Typeface Corporation. Copyright (c) VTC Vigilante Typeface Corporation, ...

FrameMaker is specifically designed for things like manuals and text books. It has more robust cross-referencing, indexing, etc. needed for such projects. That's the entire point behind FrameMaker. While I have not directly worked with FrameMaker, I would be inclined to download the trial and try it. FrameMaker would be the next logical step if the InDesign ...

A workaround: I have put a backup program to the PC of one person who sometimes made for ex. this error. A file based backup program can have several backup profiles which are run in the background with different schedules. One profile can search certain file types and make frequent backups with keeping also a couple of old copies. That program was "Second ...

Editing a font is possible in font editor software. There are many of them available commercially and for free. There are a few problems: others do not have the modified font file, so they cannot print nor watch your documents which use that font (except if you have rasterized or outlined the texts or the font file is embedded) The document will be shown ...

It seems to me that you are probably using align to baseline grid with the default increments of 12 points. Thus, your leading will automatically round up to multiples of 12, explaining the various jumps. Select the problematic text frame and look for this icon in the paragraph panel. The left icon disables align to baseline grid, whereas the right icon ...

Did you try Updating All Numbers from the Book panel popup menu? Go to the Indesign Preferences and check if General → Page Numbering is set to Section Numbering instead Absolute Numbering. Then Update All Numbers.

There are two issues with your script. First, as you mentioned, the referencing is not quite correct. The item property of a collection is not an array, so you cannot address it as such. Instead you can use the pages collection itself like an array. So your line var pageRef = docRef.pages.item[currentPageNumber]; should be changed to var pageRef = docRef....
