Print to Web in InDesign or Pages using iWeb Apps
There's no need to completely redesign that print project for the web. You can just past the art elements directly from your favorite layout program into iWeb.

Use iWeb as an easy Print to Web solution. Take any layout from Adobe InDesign, or Apple's iWork Pages program, copy the elements from the document and paste them directly into iWeb. It is a quick way to turn that cool poster you made into a website. Some alpha channels may not be supported from Indesign to iWeb, so some transparency effects may not work. Also, the graphics will not be optimized well in this situation, but nonetheless, it is a quick and friendly solution.

[crarko adds: I haven't tested this one. I suppose finding a good use for iWeb is a good thing. InDesign and Pages both support export to HTML but this gives a simple publishing solution. Dreamweaver obviously does this too, although I always thought the interface to set it up was rather cumbersome.]

Print to Web in InDesign or Pages using iWeb

Paragraph and Object styles in InDesign will become classnames in the Exported HTML, which makes styling the output quite easy too.

Print to Web in InDesign or Pages using iWeb
Authored by: robleach on Jan 09, '11 05:57:24PM
So is this just for InDesign & Pages? And you're not using the print dialog? You're copying and pasting what you want to "print"? I've been using a command line utility (pdftohtml) to convert PDF's saved via the print dialog (from any app), mostly playlists from iTunes. It would be really nice if I could skip the command line and print from any app to an html document. Any suggestions on how to do that? Rob
