|XChange Plug-ins for Adobe InDesign CS3
| XChange International, announce the release of InData, InCatalog and InCatalog Pro for Adobe InDesign CS3. The popular plug-ins are available for users to purchase as full versions or upgrades to earlier versions of the plug-ins for InDesign CS and CS2 .
InData brings the full layout, design, typographic and picture publishing power of Adobe InDesign to bear on all data-driven repetitive publishing tasks. Users can control their design and layout by using InDesign's typographic controls for each variable field and for any intervening text, to get just the right look for their data. Simply put, InData works like a mail merge on steroids. Users write simple text statements to import and format their text and graphics. Then, with a few clicks, InData¹s menu-driven tools build documents at hundreds or even thousands of pages per hour.
InData has a powerful English-like scripting language. Users can put any field from their data source in any order in the text flow, force page breaks, generate headers/footers, apply master pages as needed and more.
InData's scripting language can be used to build simple or complex rules for including or excluding fields, pictures and static text. And there are no limits on data: records and fields can be as many and as long as need be.
InCatalog is a powerful bi-directional linking tool for creating transparent links between Adobe InDesign documents and external data. With these links in place, users never have to enter or update their data in two places (documents and database), but can simply update one or the other from the most current version. Once links are established with the the easy-to-use linking tool, changes can be made either in the document or the database, and the changes pushed in the other direction with no extra work.
InCatalog's links are invisible to a printed layout (but visible while the user is working). Linked elements can be moved between documents freely without loss of linkage.
InData, InCatalog and InCatalog Pro for Adobe InDesign are available now through XChange International. To order, or for more information, users can visit
