Meet Octopus. A truly fascinating creature.

An octopus living in the sea has nine brains, three hearts and eight arms. It has a special character, both short and long term memory and finds its way around mazes. Its lack of a skeleton makes it extremely agile and it has a light-sensitive skin – which ensures that it can adapt to its surroundings at lightning speed.

Exactly these characteristics apply to our InDesign scripts from Octopus. Scripts that make your InDesign better and allow you to work faster and more flexible. At the same time, the scripts are easy to use. The intuitive user interface makes them easy to use, even for those who don’t like scripts.

Your little helping arms for InDesign:

A few scripts to try out

Script: Display

Configure in a window how you want the InDesign documents to be displayed. With one click, you can see the pages the way you want to see them.

Script: Font Management

Organize your and your clients' fonts into client or project folders and activate them with one click.

Script: Watermark

With this you are able to insert watermarks directly into your layouts. The text elements are protected so that, for example, they cannot be deleted in a PDF file.

You can get these and other scripts from Octopus.

What the inventors say

Christoph Steffens .

Scripts help to perform recurring tasks automatically. Automation can minimize human error by reducing weak points in the process. Our thoughtfully programmed scripts make complex tasks less error-prone overall.

Katharina Frerichs .

The automation of tasks ensures in both general workflows and specifically in the InDesign environment that certain elements are alyways used consistently. Using scripts can encourage InDesign users to learn more about their program.

Gerald Singelmann .

Programming a script can be adapted to specific project needs. This allows you to get your work done faster and more effectively. Automation allows more time to be spend on creative design and production. More security, more consistency, more stability.
