The Twixl Importer is a free plugin for Adobe InDesign that allows you to convert Adobe DPS Folio Overlay properties in a document to their Twixl Publisher counterparts.11


The Twixl Importer plug-in is installed automatically as part of the Twixl Publisher plug-in installation.

  • Open the InDesign document containing the Adobe DPS Folio Overlays, then open the Twixl Importer plugin from the Extensions menu under Window.
  • Click on the “Import DPS Overlays” button.


The plugin will now go through all items in the document and convert all Folio overlays to their Twixl Publisher equivalents. That’s all there is to it…


The Twixl Importer plugin works with Adobe InDesign CS6 and newer. It runs both on OS X and Windows.
