Operating System: Mac OS X
Xtags gives IT departments, OEMs, and system integrators a way to automate the construction of complex documents without learning InDesign internals or creating custom plugins, and it gives tag-using end users the power they need for complex editorial jobs.
When driving the document building process with a database (picture-based data publishing, books, catalogs, classified ads, etc.), Xtags gives you the ability to build very complex documents using the data-side environment of your choice.
From the end user's standpoint, no technical knowledge is required, and it's easy to use - you produce a tagged text file, and the end user (or your automation script) simply imports the tagged text to generate the final document. Here are just a few things you can produce with Xtags: catalogs, one-to-one marketing, TV guides, directories, real estate guides, trader and swap magazines, phone books, classified advertising, and much more!
Xtags can create text content with full styling, anchored and unanchored boxes and rules, size boxes to their contents, group multiple items together, apply master pages, and control many other aspects of document building.
It integrates with InCatalog as well, allowing you to build a document and then update your data at any time without having to rebuild your document. Xtags is available for both Mac OS and Windows.
What's New in This Release:
· Reverting to the paragraph style's character attributes via no longer applies a random font/size/color if the paragraph style references a character style for its character attributes.
· Fixed a problem where loading a picture using a relative path of the form ":a folder:a picture file with a very long name.tif" or ":a picture file with a very long name.tif"would result in a file not found error even if the picture file actually existed. (Mac OS only)
· Worked around a problem caused by non-conforming XTensions (like PSD Import) where loading a picture was causing Xtags to emit incorrect text in its error messages.
· The print suppression flag is no longer ignored when creating boxes with Xtags 4.2.2 in QuarkXPress 5.0.
· QuarkXPress 4 or 6 .
