Release: Xtags 2.13 for InDesign 2020-2022

May 9, 2022 by

This release adds high resolution previews for auto-downloaded pictures.

Changes

  • Adds Create links for auto-downloaded pictures to the Xtags preferences panel that enables high resolution previews by saving the picture as a local file in a Downloads folder within the document’s parent folder, creating the folder if needed, and then creating a link to that file. If the document has no parent folder (if it’s a new document that hasn’t yet been saved, for example), pictures are saved to the user’s actual Downloads folder (~/Downloads) instead.

  • Adds a Prevent naming collisions option to the Xtags preferences panel which, when enabled, attempts to prevent confusion between like-named internet resources by creating a deep folder structure for all downloaded pictures within the Downloads folder that’s based on the source URL’s host name and path components. For example, the URL

    https://images.pexels.com/photos/10717781.jpeg

    would, if it was actually valid, download to the path

    document's-folder/Downloads/images.pexels.com/photos/10717781.jpeg

    For comparison, with the option disabled, the same image would be saved locally as just

    document's-folder/Downloads/10717781.jpeg

  • Shows URL download progress and adds support for cancellation.

  • Fixes a problem that could prevent a progress bar from being shown when importing with a Paste with Xtags.
