Define or apply text, object and table styles via drag-and-drop

Interested in saving time on mind-numbing tasks like complex formatting of layout elements? Our Smart Styles plug-in is here to help.

First, define your Smart Style. This is as simple as dragging a formatted page item into a Smart Styles library. Smart Styles will analyze the formatting of the object, determining repeating patterns of style changes, and stores it. To apply the complex formatting to another page item, simply drag-and-drop from the library onto the object(s) and you're done!


Share, update and reuse formatting

Smart Styles’ intelligent programming recognizes complex structures within tables, texts and other objects and does all the hard work for you. And, if you decide to modify a Smart Style that's already been applied, the entire document can be updated in a simple step.

Smart Styles are stored in one or more InDesign libraries which can be shared easily with other users. Text styles and swatches used by Smart Styles are automatically created when they are not available in the document, so sharing and reusing styles has never been easier.


Add spreadsheet functions to InDesign tables

Smart Styles doesn’t stop at formatting. It can also help you by adding formulas to InDesign and InCopy tables and by sorting rows. You can use formulas such as Sum, Round, and Average to calculate totals, and use up to three sort criteria according to your specific language requirements.

Once you get started, you'll soon understand why Smart Styles received the prestigious Creative Mac award, and MacAddict rated Smart Styles “Awesome” and “Editor’s Choice.”
