Configurator Reloaded PlugIn ID CC

Hallo Thomas In InDesign wie auch in Photoshop eine ausgezeichnete Hilfe. Vereinfacht die Arbeitsabläufe um vieles. Möchte ich ganz sicher nicht mehr missen.Vielen Dank für deine tolle Arbeit. Liebe Grüsse aus der Schweiz.

Fills a gap in the InDesign panels

The InDesign tools panel works well, but apart from orientation and number of columns, it can't be customized. Even QuarkXPress allows you to show and hide tools. Configurator Reloaded is much better. You can create your own tools panel with the tools, menu commands, and scripts you want in a single place.

Tolles Plug-in!

As a user of the Photoshop version of this panel, I've been waiting (and hoping) for an InDesign version for a while now. I purchased it without hesitation on release, and already it's a significant part of my workflow. It works exactly as advertised and even though I know my keyboard shortcuts inside-out, I still find this an invaluable tool. It's simple to use and I would recommend it for all levels of InDesign User. It will save you time and make life easier. This is a panel worth every single cent (and more) of its asking price.
