New PDF-to-InDesign Plug-In Announced

I’m getting caught up from the flood of Macworld, and I wanted to highlight a few gems I found at the show. My first discovery of the week was a new PDF to InDesign conversion plug-in from Recosoft. They were demoing the plug-in live on the show floor and I was impressed with the results. The plug-in runs inside InDesign and converts a PDF into an editable InDesign layout. The conversion results will of course be constrained by how the original document was designed and how the PDf was created, but even their beta build showed off quite well.

In a perfect world, you would always have access to all original source files. In lieu of perfection, this new plug-in might save your butt. Recosoft says they’ll ship this plug-in in Q2 2007 for Mac and Windows users.

So I’m curious, have any of you needed a solution like this? Anxious to get your hands on this plug-in?
