WoodWing Announces Smart Styles CS4 Beta release

Thursday, September 25, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

Zaandam, The Netherlands (September 24, 2008) – Adobe helped publishers prepare for the future with yesterday's introduction of Creative Suite 4, and WoodWing Software greets the launch today with the news that all of its products will be fully compatible with CS4.
Blended Media Philosophy
"Adobe continues to revolutionize the publishing industry with the launch of CS4, and publishers are going to be blown away when they see some of the improvements," said Erik Schut, President of WoodWing Software. "Specifically, the new InDesign CS4 feature to directly export to Flash, and the channel-specific text in InCopy CS4. All of this meshes perfectly with WoodWing's philosophy of 'blended media,' the convergence between print and online."
More Smartness
"After eight years of developing Smart plug-ins, we're delighted to see that Adobe is helping WoodWing bring maximum smartness to InDesign CS4, with new features such as Smart Guides, Smart Dimensions and Smart Text Reflow," Schut added. "For corporate publishers, the enhanced table editing inside InCopy will be of great value. And the Live Preflight feature will be a tremendous help to improve efficiency with on-the-fly alerts about potential production problems."
WoodWing Labs with Smart Styles CS4
The first WoodWing product available for CS4 is the company's renowned Smart Styles efficiency plug-in for Adobe InDesign. A beta release is already available on the brand new WoodWing Labs Web site, at labs.woodwing.com. Additional beta releases are planned to be released shortly, with the first CS4-compatible products shipping before the end of the year. All of WoodWing's products will be compatible with CS4.
"This is all about helping our customers position themselves for the future," Schut said. "This is the approach that we have with our 'blended media' philosophy, and Adobe's CS4 helps take this to the next level. We share the same philosophy with Adobe: Never stop making your products better. The future isn't tomorrow. The future is now."
