if you want to make editable line charts with Indesign, forget plugins!
Dmitriy Lapayev has developed some outer space script with chart generation and above all data backup in a loaded XML file.
if you change the datas or scale the host rectangle, run again the script to update your chart. Impressive!
- Select or create the rectangle you want to place the chart in.
- Run the script. The setup window opens.
- Set points coordinates and click ok.
- The chart appears just like that.
Run again the script to change the values or to update the chart dimensions in case you scaled the rectangle.
