Free Plug-in for InDesign: Autofit Type

February 4, 2008

I did come across an interesting, free plug-in cross-platform (Mac & Windows) called Autofit Type from a firm called Typéfi which might be very useful. Here’s the jist of it:

AutoFit Text Frame options control how a Text Frame is resized when text is inserted during page composition. AutoFit options are always active, this means that frames resize dynamically as content is added or removed from Text Frames. This dynamic resizing prevents text overset. Where AutoFit options are applied on a multiple column Text Frame, text will be balanced across all columns.

This tip is from Design Tools Monthly which is an incredible monthly newsletter that covers the world of design tech in easy-to-read digest format. And they’ve been doing it for 15 years now. They’ve also got a free weekly podcast that’s made up (mostly) of the material you pay a couple of hundred dollars a year to get in print form.
