Description

Has anyone an idea to get the content easily from the CK Editor into Indesign and after changes backwards into CK Editor? Which format is supported or which converter makes it easy to transform the content into Indesign 5 on a Mac and back?

While googling I have found some old links like: http://indesignsecrets.com/pasting-formatted-text-into-indesign.php
https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/adobe.indesign.windows/9j2vu7dLdJY
http://zomobo.net/paste-HTML-code-into-indesign

If this is still so hard as users claim then all you can do is Create some external converter that will change HTML into Indesign accepted HTML and back.
Typical workflow would be:

  1. getHTML from CKEditor with getData() method, use converter (it could use Regex rules for converting), paste converted contents into Indesign.
  2. get formatted data from Indesign, convert it into HTML, paste into editor using setData()

NOTE: I assume that conversion from Indesign format into HTML will not be easy task because of lots of styles that you would have to apply. I think that CKEditor should work in fullPage mode and while converting from Indesign to HTML you would have to create HTML and CSS which after pasting HTML would have to be pasted into head section of editor document.
