InDesign HTML Import Script

If you’ve ever needed to import HTML code into an InDesign document, you’ll have discovered it’s not that easy. Luckily Ariel Walden over at IDExtras has come up with a nifty script to do it for you. It’s not meant to import a fully formatted, complex HTML page (use Acrobat if you need that) but will “provide the main text and images on any given web page, and import those into InDesign. The idea is that the text should come in with same paragraph and character styles, in a clean and simple manner, ready for use in a design or publication.”

IDExtras is full of other InDesign and Acrobat scripts to make your life easier. Well worth checking out.
