Idea for a new plugin - Infopanels

D-M 4 months ago 0

Hello all. What do you think about the idea for the new Illustrator plugin from Appsforlife? I mean a plugin similar to that from Esko called Esko Dynamic Panels (video showing the plugin ->

). In my previous work, we encountered the problem of repeating monotonous steps of entering data into infotables, such as colors, order name, order number etc. We were looking for some interesting solution but unfortunately the only one was the plug-in from Esko mentioned earlier which is too expensive for its functionality. Unfortunately, no one else on the market offers anything similar. Finally, one of our employees wrote a jsx plugin that had similar (though of course much more limited functionality). I no longer work for the aforementioned company but I would love to automate some of my work, such as inserting infotables in projects. From what I could find out if there is a need for such software, there is a chance that Appsforlife will deal with the topic.

Or is it only me who is trying to maximally automate monotonous activities?

Ps. Of course, there is no chance to make a faithful copy of the plugin from Esko because it works with AutomationEngine but from what I know a large part of the functions shown in the video can be implemented without cooperation (data exchange) with AE.
