[prMac.com] London, UK - XChange UK, the source for extended technology worldwide are pleased to announce that the popular Printools plug-in and XTensions software are now available for both Adobe(R) InDesign CS4 and QuarkXPress 8. Printools provides prepress and printing professionals with a powerful collection of printing tools for automated and error-free output. In one comprehensive package, users get batch printing of multiple documents, rename at print functionality, print to file in different formats and preflighting. Users can even combine several of these tools during the same print session to streamline complex printing tasks.
The batch printing tool allows users to print multiple files (up to 5,000 documents) with the same print settings. Users simply select the files they wish to print, arrange them in any order, and hit the Print button. Users can even combine batch printing with Save to File to generate multiple PostScript(R) files at once.
Users can automatically rename the document during the output stage, without altering the original document or file name. Print renaming is useful for identifying the document during the output stage, regardless of the layout file name. It is also helpful in keeping track of revisions or when printing individual pages for imposition. Printools lets users specify up to 3 variable components in the new name. The Save to File as PostScript, PDF or INX tool allows users to save the printout to a designated folder as a PostScript, PDF, or INX file. When combined with batch printing, users can generate hundreds of these files in one single step.
The preflighting engine in Printools quickly and thoroughly checks for potential problems that could lead to time and material waste. Users can customise the preflight checks by activating any of the following diagnostics: missing fonts, text overflows, non-printing graphics, broken picture links, RGB images, modified links, and poor image resolution.
Printools makes it easy to keep track of the printed files with the powerful Print Log window. This window reports in real time which files are being printed (or saved), plus any errors or warnings that may occur during the output process. It also included the Preflight Results list with all the preflighting details, and the Skipped Documents list, including documents that have been skipped for not meeting the preflight requirements.
Printools for InDesign CS4 or QuarkXPress 8, as well as for earlier versions of both InDesign and QuarkXPress are available now through XChange UK via electronic delivery worldwide. To order, or for more information, users can visit the website, or call on 44(0)20 7490 4455 during UK business hours.
