Pageflex Announces .EDIT

Browser-based design tool includes typographical features By Dave Nagel
Pageflex says it's expanded its line of publishing tools with the release of .EDIT, a browser-based application for design and page layout. Pageflex, a subsidiary of font maker Bitstream, says .EDIT includes full-featured typographical capabilities. It's an addon for the company's Mpower dynamic composition suite.

According to Pageflex, with .EDIT, companies can create Web sites with a library of document templates and allow any authorized Web site visitor to create customized versions of these documents, "containing full-featured typography and graphic design elements," using a Web browser. It allows for document editing without requiring the use of any plugins, and it supports templates that include fonts, images and other design elements.

Pageflex .EDIT combines Pageflex's XML-based NuDoc composition engine with Java applet technologies and supports Internet Explorer and Netscape browsers on the Mac and PC, according to Pageflex. It can be used for template creation and editing, free-form editing of document elements (including text and object styling), variable data input via Web forms, document previewing, PDF proofing and final output. It can display multiple-page documents, various zoom page controls and scroll bars. And its editing features include text input, text and object styling, image placement and resizing, creating or modifying objects and moving objects on or across pages.
