InDesign CS/CS2 fans, ever wanted a way to transpose a table in InDesign? To swap X and Y axes of a table, but maintain most of the formatting? Well wish no longer! You need my handy Table Transpose Script. To use, unzip the archive, then move the .js file into the Presets/Scripts folder next to InDesign itself. That folder is in Applications on the Mac, or in Program Files on the PC.

Once it’s in there, select a text frame that contains a table, then choose Window > Automation > Scripts (or just Window > Scripts on CS) and double-click to run. Various warnings will appear if you didn’t follow the last sentence correctly. Of course, this may destroy your computer. Who knows? By downloading this file… blah blah blah… you agree that it’s not my fault and you won’t sue me.

There are many, many more scripts available on the Goodies folder on the original install discs, so track them down or have a little discussion with your friendly IT people. Corner Effects is special. Crop Marks are handy. Etc. Anyway, my script is free to use/modify/whatever; if you want to include it in some package/tip/goodie box, please let me know.
