By itself, APID ToolAssistant does not ‘do’ anything apparent. Instead it assists other plug-ins to do their job.
You have this plug-in installed when you use most of the InDesign tools you can find on this web site.
As a result, this new 1.0.48 upgrade is a recommended download for all users of any of our tools (like TextExporter, TextStitch, MagnetoGuides, FrameReporter, Color2Gray…). Simply replace the older APID ToolAssistant plug-in in your plug-ins folder with the latest one.
This new version has a direct impact on FrameReporter: it fixes an issue with the frame labels shown by FrameReporter when a frame has a drop shadow applied. If you’re using FrameReporter, please upgrade your APID ToolAssistant!
