Hi list,

I've seen a designer friend layout a book in InDesign so quickly and the
output is amazing. I wonder if there's a way to feed text into InDesign
documents through a plugin ? If so, a book could be written in text (org)
and then fed into inDesign? Anyone around use / ever used InDesign for
layout?

Cheers,

- M

No, I don't use it myself, but I expect using the ODT exporter, 
opening in OpenOffice or similar, and saving to .doc or .rtf for 
import into InDesign is your best bet. (As to whether .doc or .rtf, 
experiment. In my limited experience designers prefer RTF, for good 
reason, but OpenOffice RTF export has been quirky for me in the past.)

Cheers,
Christian
