Package Central for Adobe InDesign Improves IDML Workflows

July 7, 2020 in Publishing (E)

[] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today announces Package Central 1.11.16, a feature update to company's document packaging workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Originally developed for a major publishing house in the United States, the software automates InDesign document collection by processing files from hot folders. Package Central offloads file packaging to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the collection process.

The new version improves the automatic IDML creation feature by shifting the exporting stage from the source InDesign document to the final packaged one. It ensures that the IDML file always has its imported images linked to their correct location in the package folder. In addition, the update fixed an issue in which collected fonts in the "Document fonts" folder were not auto-activated, improves memory management and addresses a rare license activation issue.

Package Central solves the problem of centralized packaging and archiving of InDesign projects in a workgroup environment while serving unlimited users on a network. The software lets prepress operators, production artists, and designers simply submit files to watched hot folders that reside on a network. The app then automatically collects InDesign files along with their fonts and links into the destination folder with dynamically assigned variable name.

Package Central runs on a dedicated Mac station and watches hot folders for incoming InDesign files. The software offers the following key features and benefits:

* Automatically collect InDesign files from hot folders
* Update modified links automatically
* Create IDML and PDF files on the fly
* Automatic email notifications of process stages and errors
* Serves unlimited users on a network
* Variable folder names
* Detailed processing history

Package Central can be purchased for $149.95 (USD) from Zevrix website as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. The update is free for registered users. Package Central requires macOS 10.8-10.15 and Adobe InDesign CS5-2020.
