[prMac.com] Toronto (ON) Canada - Zevrix Solutions today is proud to announce the release of Package Central 1.9.7, a maintenance update to its file 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 document collection to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the packaging process.
The new version addresses an issue that could prevent some email and XML metadata settings from being saved in workflow presets after quitting the app. Package Central lets users create multiple email templates to issue customized mail alerts in case of processing errors and preflight warnings, while XML variables allow to take advantage of InDesign file metadata in variable package folder names.
Under Package Central workflow, production artists, prepress operators and designers simply submit InDesign files to watched hot folders that reside on a network. The software automatically collects the documents 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 performs all its tasks automatically on a dedicated workstation and can run absolutely unattended. The app offers the following key features and benefits:
* Collect InDesign files from watched hot folders
* Create hot folders for various packaging settings
* Create PDF and IDML files on the fly
* Automatic email notifications on process stages and errors
* Variable package folder names
* Update modified links automatically
* Detailed processing logs
* Maintain a single set of settings for entire workgroup
