“A plug-in is a software component that adds a specific feature to an existing computer program. Adobe has increased the productivity of InDesign by allowing third-party developers to create plug-ins. As an example: One of the latest plug-ins that benefit printing companies comes from Markzware, which has the PDF2DTP (PDF to Desktop Publishing) plug-in for InDesign CC 2017 for Mac. For just a $199/year subscription, users can convert an existing PDF file to an InDesign file where content can be edited. This plug-in goes beyond the normal PDF editor and eliminates the need for the printer to completely rebuild the file.”
