anybody knows of plug in for adobe indesign that allow you to make charts from indesign the way you can in illustrator. any recommendation?
I would still recommend using AI for charts.
For pie charts:
A paid font (not a plugin strangely) that I once tried with CC 2015 works great https://www.scribbletone.com/typefaces/ff-chartwell
Otherwise, you can try a script Indiscripts :: Claquos , I dint try but it is free!
