Panel: Adobe XMP panel for InDesign CS5

Almost every media file contains info about it’s contents. Adobe’s XMP (Extensible Metadata Platform) is, as they say, “a labeling technology that allows you to embed data about a file, known as Metadata, into the file itself”.

For me, most annoying thing in InDesign is that you CAN’T see or find how many object I have selected. Even “Info” panel is not showing that info!

It was simple, just with address bar and page window, and I decided to expand it little bit more. I added back/forward, refresh, stop buttons, little menu with some useful links. Hope you will find it useful as much as I do! 😀
