Beta release: DocsFlow 2.0 beta 4 for InDesign CS5/CS5.5/CS6

August 14, 2013 by

This beta adds support for OpenOffice (ODF) files, enables multi-document import, and addresses minor issues found during testing.

You can download the beta (a pre-release version) from the “DocsFlow 2.0 beta” right sidebar on this page, or from the same sidebar on the main product page. Double-click on the downloaded .zxp file to install DocsFlow 2.0 beta 4 using the appropriate Adobe Extension Manager for your version of Adobe InDesign. (Be sure to follow the sidebar warning if you’re an existing DocsFlow user, running under Mac OS.)

If you already own a license for DocsFlow (beginning “EK-P”), then this same license will also activate DocsFlow 2.0 during its beta phase. If you are in need of a new license, you can buy one, which will work for DocsFlow 1.x as well as the forthcoming DocsFlow 2.0. As always, you’re welcome to try DocsFlow 2.0 for free as a Demo, which limits linked Google Docs documents to one link per InDesign document.

Remember, all DocsFlow licenses purchased prior to 2.0’s release will be Pro licenses. So purchase a license now to get a Pro-level license, which enables spreadsheet support and story export, for the soon-to-be non-Pro price of $200, a $200 savings from the soon-to-be $400 Pro license.

Please note that this beta plug-in will expire on September 8, 2013.

Thanks for giving this beta a try!  We value your feedback, so please contact us with any questions or concerns while you use this, or any other, Em product.


  • Adds support for the placement of OpenOffice/LibreOffice ODF documents and spreadsheets that are stored in Google Drive.
  • Allows the placement of multiple documents from the Place with DocsFlow dialog and via drag-and-drop. Each selected or dropped document is loaded into InDesign’s place gun, which can then be used to place each linked document individually.
  • Fixes a problem with the Place with DocsFlow dialog where it could sometimes show deleted documents.
  • Fixes a problem where the Login dialog would default to a direct-style connection even if the previous connection was via browser.
