New MadeToPrint for InDesign Boasts Advanced Features and Options

(August 14, 2006)
XChange International, the source for extended technology
worldwide, are pleased to announce the release of the new version of
MadeToPrint for InDesign. The new version (2.2.165) of MadeToPrint InDesign
CS/CS2 includes improved automated output both on single workstations or
running as a hot folder-based unattended solution (e.g. in connection with
editorial systems).

The MadeToPrint plug-in optimizes print output as well as the creation of
PDF, EPS and PostScript® files offering a large number of options which go
beyond the print settings of Adobe InDesign.

MadeToPrint offers these features:
? Ability to process multiple jobs with a single mouse click
? Ability to process single pages (saving not only per page but also per
spread)
? Dynamic file naming
? Uses separate internal PostScript names
? Creates target directories automatically
? Provides an infobar with dynamically generated information on every page
? PostScript Expert options
? Save EPS output settings as jobs
? Allows user requests during print jobs ( for entry of article and customer
numbers)
? Specify the number of copies and page settings directly

The updated version of MadeToPrint InDesign offers the following new
features:
? Instead of printing or exporting images linked to an InDesign file,
MadeToPrint can grey out image boxes in the document and include image
information, such as name or path. Fonts and font sizes of this information
can be adjusted flexibly resulting in better output performance (images do
not have to be loaded) and advanced control (image info is included and
visualised).
? A MadeToPrint hotfolder can now be monitored by several MadeToPrint Auto
Plug-Ins at the same time. This load balancing feature speeds up auto
processing significantly?incoming InDesign files are output at a much faster
speed.
? MadeToPrint is able to execute scripts before and after processing
documents?this applies also to MadeToPrint Auto version. The Plug-In handles
JavaScripts, Shell scripts, AppleScripts (Mac only) and VB Scripts (Win
only), providing more options to integrate MadeToPrint seamlessly into
publishing workflows.
? When creating InDesign packages with MadeToPrint, the name of the layout
can be specified dynamically with a token providing more advanced options to
label InDesign packages as well as their content.
? A new checkbox (?Use system printer) enables MadeToPrint users to
activate the default standard printer selected by the operating system with
just one click. Set up of MadeToPrint jobs is now faster and easier with
less manual adjusting.
? MadeToPrint Preflight is executed only on those pages and images which are
to be printed or exported, as opposed to the entire document offering users
a more selective output check in less time.
? All Distiller job settings for creating PDF files with Acrobat 7 (like
PDF/X1, Standard; Smallest File Size) are detected and addressed directly by
MadeToPrint for seamless integration with Adobe Acrobat.
Optimizations in the new version include:
? In order to increase performance, the Fonts folder is checked only once
when running MTP in batch mode.
? Batch mode: Files are processed alphabetically enabling users to process
files according to an alphabetical order.
? Paths of files that have been distilled or included in an InDesign package
are added to the MadeToPrint environment file, thus allowing users to take
advantage of this information, e.g. for scripting.
Updates are free of charge to current MadeToPrint for InDesign users.
