Toronto, Ont., Canada – Zevrix Solutions today announces Package Central 1.11, a maintenance update to its document packaging automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Originally developed for a major publisher in the United States, the software automates InDesign packaging by processing files from watched hot folders. Package Central offloads file packaging to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the document collection process.
The new version lets users process InDesign Markup Language (IDML) files which enable backwards compatibility with older InDesign versions. IDML files provide an interchangeable format for InDesign documents, as well as a way for third-party tools to modify and assemble InDesign files. Users now can submit IDML files to Package Central hot folders just like the regular InDesign documents.
Under Package Central workflow, production artists, prepress operators and designers simply submit files to watched hot folders that reside on a network. The software automatically collects InDesign files along with their fonts and links freeing user's time for important tasks such as design and layout. Operator workstations will never again be tied up by the packaging process.
Package Central runs on a dedicated Mac station and watches hot folders for incoming InDesign files. The software performs all its tasks automatically and can run absolutely unattended. It offers the following key features and benefits:
* Automatically collect InDesign files from hot folders
* Update modified links automatically
* Create PDF and IDML files on the fly
* Automatic email notifications of process stages and errors
* Compose variable folder names
* Serves unlimited users on a network
* Detailed processing history
