in5 v1.2 now supports Liquid Layout and Baker Framework

Justin | extensions,HTML5,InDesign,software | Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

We’ve got some big new additions to in5 (InDesign to HTML5). These updates, like all version 1.x updates, are available at no charge to existing in5 users.

Take a gander.

Liquid Layout

InDesign CS6 added the Liquid Layout functionality that allows you to controls how and when your page items scale and re-position themselves. Now you can export that capability to HTML with in5!

in5 even allows older versions of InDesign to use Liquid Layout (it simply defaults to scale mode).

For more on using Liquid Layout in InDesign, check out:

The Baker Framework

The Baker Framework is a really fantastic open-source ebook framework to publish interactive books and magazines. Baker-built ebooks allow you to maintain complex and precise layouts—unlike EPUB, where the focus is on reflow—which fits in quite nicely with our mission of layout preservation with in5. A Baker Framework export has been a popular feature request since our initial Kickstarter project, so we’re thrilled to announce that it’s now available! The Baker-ready output from in5 can then be easily converted to a standalone app or published to Apple Newsstand using the tutorials available on the Baker Framework website.

Apple Newsstand is a built-in application the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. It is dedicated to downloading and displaying digital versions of newspapers and magazines. The Newsstand option is great, because it’s much easier to publish (and monetize) your content than would be with an app (no code-signing required, as far as I can tell).

Combine the Baker export with the Liquid Page Format and your ebook will automatically re-orient and scale itself in both portrait and landscape modes.
