Package Central for Adobe InDesign Fixes Image Relinking Anomaly

September 15, 2020 in Publishing (E)

[] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today announces Package Central 1.11.18, a maintenance update to company's document packaging automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Originally developed for a major publishing house in the United States, the software automates InDesign workflows by collecting files from hot folders. Package Central offloads InDesign packaging to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the collection process.

The new version abandons the use of intermediate temporary folder names which were initially assigned to the InDesign package folders. Users reported that under some rare conditions it could result to incorrect link paths in the collected InDesign files. With the new update, Package Central assigns the final variable folder names right away, which ensures the correct image relinking in final InDesign files at any time. Package Central lets users compose variable package names based on InDesign file name, date, current user and other tokens.

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.
