Release: Xtags 2.0.1 for InDesign CS5/CS5.5/CS6/CC
January 13, 2014 by car
This quick-patch release fixes a frame width problem introduced in the 2.0 release.
Fixes a problem where box tags specifying a
0ptwidth would import as frames with
1ptwidths. This restores the previous (1.6.1 and older) behavior where a zero-width frame would cause Xtags to ignore any remaining frame-specific settings in that tag (like color and style). Doing this avoids a long-standing InDesign-ism where the frame’s width is forced to be at least 1 pt if any remaining frame settings (like color or style) are applied by the tag.
Note that starting with Xtags 2.0, the width setting may be left blank in order to adopt the applied object style’s setting. In this case, where no width is specified, Xtags will consider all remaining frame settings and apply any that are specified (non-empty). It’s up to the user to make sure that settings applied by a tag are compatible with those contained in the object style.
