Em Software Releases Xtags For InDesign Plugin

Bringing code-based automated document building to InDesign (March 11, 2005)

Em Software is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Xtags for InDesign. With the excellent feedback received from production sites during the alpha and beta development stages, the first release of Xtags for InDesign is rock-solid.

"Many of our existing Xtags for QuarkXPress customers have wanted to switch to InDesign, but have been unable to do so because Xtags is a vital part of their publishing process and has not been available for InDesign," said Andrew MacBride, VP of marketing at Em Software. "That issue is resolved today, and we look forward to working with many of our OEM partners as they prepare workflows using Xtags for InDesign."

Xtags is a powerful text filter that turns tagged text into finished documents, allowing automated document building. It's used in a wide variety of settings by OEMs, System Integrators, IT departments, and end users who need a robust text tagging language. In database-driven publishing, Xtags enables the building of very complex documents, and any data-side environment can be used to produce a tagged text file. The tagged text file is simply imported into InDesign where the tags are interpreted, generating the final InDesign document ? a document with fully styled text content, anchored and unanchored frames sized to their contents, grouped items, applied master pages, updated headers and footers, and much more. Here are just a few things you can produce with Xtags:

* catalogs
* classified advertising
* TV guides
* directories
* real estate guides
* trader and swap magazines
* phone books
* one-to-one marketing
* and much more!

Xtags for InDesign is available for both Mac and Windows, and is priced at $400; multi-pack discounts are available. Owners of Xtags for QuarkXPress can purchase a crossgrade lisense for $200.
