XChange International Announce PictureXTracker XTension

April 8, 2007 in Software (F)


XChange International, the source for extended technology worldwide, are pleased to announce the release of the PictureXTracker XTension for QuarkXPress® 7.1. PictureXTracker allows users to search and reassign linked image directories or volumes. The preferences allow for suffixes, the date, case-sensitive searches and picture paths can simply be replaced.

PictureXTracker searches a selected directory or volume for all picture files related to one or multiple QuarkXPress documents. This allows even complex file structures to be efficiently searched for picture data so that if a required picture exists anywhere in the selected directory hierarchy, PictureXTracker will find it and present it to the user.

PictureXTracker provides various optional settings, such as for whether specific file suffixes are to be taken into account or not, whether the search is to be case sensitive, or whether the file used for assignment should always be the one with the latest date. Reassignment can even be carried out for all open documents with one operation.

After PictureXTracker has searched the directory or volume, the status dialogue shows how many pictures have been found in the directory system searched. If required, a list of missing pictures is generated. If PictureXTracker finds several pictures with the same name in the searched directories during the search process, the user can individually decide which picture file is to be considered the valid image. PictureXTracker then loads the selected pictures into the document , and the document's image path information is up-to-date again.

PictureXTracker allows users to replace complete or partial picture paths with others. By using Macintosh or Windows path separators, even the platform can be changed if required. Advantages of PictureXTracker at a glance:
- The tedious reassignment of pictures whose location has changed is now a thing of the past
- PictureXTracker updates the assignment between the document and pictures with only a few mouse clicks, even for complex directory structures
- PictureXTracker allows the simultaneous reassignment of picture paths for multiple documents
- Master pages can be included in or excluded from the assignment process

PictureXTracker is also available as an Adobe® InDesign® plug-in. In InDesign documents, embedded pictures can be included or excluded from the assignment process.

System Requirements:
QuarkXPress v6.x - 7.x on?Macintosh or Windows
InDesign CS/CS2 on Macintosh or Windows
