The AsukaBook InDesign Tool (ABId) has been created to offer an alternative AsukaBook design option and a more efficient workflow to design layouts for an AsukaBook in Adobe® InDesign. It integrates seamlessly in InDesign and allows you to simply setup a book layout by creating blank templates for designing, convert templates to different book types, sizes and number of sides, and export a JPEG files for your AsukaBook order.
