How to Install and Use SharedContent Plugin for InDesign CS5


InDesign CS5 is a powerful and versatile software for creating professional layouts for print and digital publications. However, sometimes you may need to use additional features or tools that are not included in the default installation of InDesign. For example, you may want to use the SharedContent plugin, which allows you to link content across multiple documents and update them automatically.


The SharedContent plugin was introduced in InDesign CS5.5 and is compatible with later versions of InDesign. However, if you have an older version of InDesign, such as CS5, you may encounter some issues when trying to open a document that was created with the plugin. In this article, we will show you how to install and use the SharedContent plugin for InDesign CS5.


How to Install the SharedContent Plugin for InDesign CS5


To install the SharedContent plugin for InDesign CS5, you will need to follow these steps:


Download the plugin from the Adobe Exchange website. You can search for "SharedContent" or use this link: https://exchange.adobe.com/creativecloud.details.100001.sharedcontent.html


Extract the ZIP file and locate the folder that matches your operating system (Windows or Mac OS).


Copy the folder named "SharedContent" and paste it into the Plug-Ins folder inside the InDesign application folder. The default location of the Plug-Ins folder is:


Windows: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe InDesign CS5\Plug-Ins


Mac OS: Applications/Adobe InDesign CS5/Plug-Ins


Restart InDesign CS5 and check if the plugin is installed correctly. You can do this by going to Window > Browse Add-ons and looking for "SharedContent" in the list of installed add-ons.


How to Use the SharedContent Plugin for InDesign CS5


To use the SharedContent plugin for InDesign CS5, you will need to follow these steps:


Create a new document or open an existing one in InDesign CS5.


Select the content that you want to share across multiple documents, such as text frames, images, tables, etc.


Go to Window > Extensions > SharedContent and click on the "Create Content Link" button. This will create a link between the selected content and a source file that will be stored in a folder named "SharedContent" in your Documents folder.


Save your document and close it.


Open another document in InDesign CS5 where you want to use the same content.


Go to Window > Extensions > SharedContent and click on the "Place Content Link" button. This will open a dialog box where you can browse and select the source file that contains the linked content.


Click on "Open" and place the linked content in your document as you would normally do with any other object.


Save your document and close it.


If you want to update the linked content in any of the documents that use it, simply open the source file in InDesign CS5, make your changes, and save it. The changes will be reflected automatically in all the documents that have a content link to that source file.


Note: You can also edit or delete content links by using the buttons in the SharedContent panel. You can also access more options by right-clicking on a content link in your document.


Conclusion


The SharedContent plugin for InDesign CS5 is a useful tool that can help you save time and ensure consistency when working with multiple documents that share some common content. By installing and using this plugin, you can create content links that allow you to update your content across different documents with ease. a474f39169
