[prMac.com] London, UK - XChange International, the source for extended technology worldwide, are pleased to announce the release of Exportools for InDesign CS4 as well as Exportools XT for QuarkXPress 8. Exportools automates the process of exporting individual pages, spreads or selections into separate files.
High-end printers and prepress houses worldwide rely on the power, speed and flexibility of Exportools to generate high resolution output using today's printing standards: EPS, PostScript(R) and PDF. What's more, Exportools can intelligently extract all the document text, and export to other formats such as JPEG, TIFF, PNG, Photoshop, PICT and HTML.
Because Exportools creates dozens or even hundreds of files, it's essential that a proper file naming scheme is available to guarantee that each file has a different name, and that it can easily be recognised. That's why Exportools comes with a smart name composition engine that allows users to specify variable placeholders, such as page or serial numbers, that change automatically to uniquely name each exported file.
Exportools can also be configured to open each of the exported files with a post-processing application the user chooses. For example, they can select Adobe Photoshop to open the saved EPS files; or have Microsoft Word open the pages they just exported as text. Exportools keeps track of up to 50 recent post-processing applications the user has used.
Exportools also provides the ability to export selections of items. The user simply selects the items in their InDesign or QuarkXPress document, and Exportools will save that portion of the document to the desired format. The user can optionally specify a margin bleed, and whether to include or not the area enclosed by the selection.
Exportools also makes it easy to keep track of the exported files with the Export Log window. This window reports in real time which files are being exported, their exact name and location, plus any errors that may occur during the output process.
