I stumble upon thisarticlewhich features 43 compared project management software alternatives and I am still having problem on what to choose that would be perfect for InDesign.
What is it you want to do with project management software aids for InDesign?
I'm wondering if you might need to look at workflow/production based solutions for InDesign instead?
For example these are three that I'm thinking of:
Funny – I was just starting to look around for flat-plan / page management software myself. It's exciting to see what's available (thanks Cari!).
As a starting point, can you recommend any free flat-plan software? At this stage I don't need sophisticated cross-application integration or project management capabilities, just something basic to create and edit page plans.

You could even use your publication template for this and just add the flatplan related layer and styles to it.
It's not automatic... but if you've already got InDesign its definitely not costing you anything extra ;-)

Thanks Cari. I hadn't thought of doing it like this, probably partly because I hadn't used the Thumbnails option for printing and want a way to view many pages at once. The trouble with my previous method of using tables came when I wanted to move pages around, but that won't be an issue here. I'll give it a try.
That Mao Workflow looks pretty good, but I couldn't find any purchase or download info.
Thanks for the suggestions!
