[prMac.com] London, UK - XChange UK, the source for extended technology worldwide, are pleased to announce the availability of a new bundle that offers users a free MadeToPrint with Imposition with every QuarkXPress 8 full or upgrade purchase from the 1st October 2009. Users can save £317 and obtain an exciting companion product that can automate their workflow, increase their productivity and streamline their day-to-day operations.
MadeToPrint XT optimises and extends output and print options in QuarkXPress and has been designed for professional users who have to create, organise and control significant numbers of print/output jobs. MadeToPrint XT helps to streamline these tasks as well as automate the creation of PDF, EPS and PostScript files. The XTension allows even complex print settings to be saved as repetitive job options, thereby ensuring efficient and safe production.
At its simplest, MadeToPrint XT combines all the aspects of a given print job into a simple selectable item. These can include: the desired printer on the network, any special settings required for that device in the chooser, page setup, and print settings (including custom separation definitions and registration-mark text and placement).
In addition, MadeToPrint XT allows for grouping of multiple print-job definitions into custom sets that can be invoked at any time to output the same document to multiple output devices, using the parameters specified for each device in its own print job. This means that with a single operation, a user can elect to have a document output to a black-and-white laser printer, a colour-proofing device, and a high-resolution image setter, and be assured that all settings in all dialogues are correct. Thus, MadeToPrint XT reduces media waste caused by improper settings of chooser selections, and allows for unattended output of QuarkXPress documents to any variety of formats.
MadeToPrint XT 8 provides powerful features like batch processing, token-based file naming and flexible layer output that extend Quark's output functionality. Additionally, the XTension allows hotfolder based processing of QuarkXPress 8 files, thus enabling users to output QuarkXPress documents completely unattended.
MadeToPrint XT's latest version includes the new Imposition function, so users can print fully imposed PDF files from their QuarkXPress documents. Users can output fully imposed jobs, from booklets to N-up, choose between run list (e.g. 4 pages step & repeat) and imposition sheets (e.g. 2 pages A4 single sided). The preconfigured imposition schemes cover all common imposition configurations. Users simply activate the Imposition function and compile the required imposition scheme with the entries under the Runlist and Sheet configuration categories provided.
The bundle is available now through XChange UK. To order, or for more information, users can visit the website, or call on 44(0)845 259 0255 during UK business hours.
