Release: InData 2.14 for InDesign CS6, CC2019-2021

July 12, 2021 by

This release adds URL-based picture imports and supports Apple silicon.


  • Installs a Universal binary for InDesign 2021 on macOS with native support for both Intel and, when used with InDesign 2021 16.3 (or later), Apple silicon (M1/ARM64) processors. InData’s About dialog now shows which slice of the binary was loaded as part of its version (as “(Intel)” or “(Apple)”).

  • Accepts URLs in addition to DOS, Windows, UNC, Apple HFS, and POSIX-style paths to allow the import of internet-based pictures and text.

    Importing an image with a URL is currently similar to copy-and-pasting an image from another application: InDesign will only store a low-resolution preview in the document. Depending on your workflow, this may mean that downloaded pictures will need to be replaced before going print.

    Note that a 3rd party plug-in or connector that supports the URL’s scheme may be required for the import to succeed.

  • Adds automatic downloading and importing of remote content (pictures and/or text) for URLs that InDesign isn’t able to access on its own (meaning, for which there’s no built-in support nor 3rd-party connector plug-in installed). Remote content is generally imported as if it was a local file, except that no link is created.

  • Adds url as a synonym for filename, to be used like set url of picture 1 to "https://...".

  • Fixes <B> in styled puts to work better with font families that have a “Black” and/or “Heavy” face instead of “Bold” (like Avenir or Hoefler Text) or in addition to “Bold” (like Avenir Next).
