SoftCare Notes Manager Released for InDesign CSEnables editorial staff to communicate more efficiently using in-line notes (July 12, 2004)
SoftCare today announces the immediate availability of its new plug-in SoftCare Notes Manager 1.0 for Adobe InDesign CS and Adobe InCopy CS. SoftCare Notes Manager enables editorial staff to communicate more efficiently using in-line notes, as displaying and navigating notes is made faster and more convenient.
The standard InDesign and InCopy notes feature enables users to create and edit in-line notes for their own reference or in order to exchange information with other users. SoftCare Notes Manager enhances this functionality by making all notes available in a single list. SoftCare Notes Manager offers filters for displaying notes created by a specific user, or notes edited within a certain timeframe, offering a quick overview of all relevant notes. You can see at a glance, for example, what notes your co-worker added to a file the previous day.
Whats more, SoftCare Notes Manager also makes it easier to navigate within the document. Clicking on an entry in the SoftCare Notes Manager palette selects the corresponding notes anchor on the page and vice versa. Double clicking an entry in the SoftCare Notes Manager palette will open the standard Adobe notes palette where you can edit or delete the note, or convert it to text.
In an editorial environment, where several people collaborate on the same text over time, SoftCare Notes Manager will quickly become an indispensable tool for reliably and efficiently exchanging suggestions and instructions.
SoftCare Notes Manager can be used with InDesign CS and InCopy CS on Mac OS X or Windows. It is designed to fully support workflows based on Adobe's InCopy Bridge plug-ins as well as SoftCare's K4 Publishing System.
SoftCare Overset Manager is available now from selected distributors as well as all K4 System Integrators at 79 Euro (or US$ 99) excluding VAT. A fully functional tryout version as well as a list of distributors is available on SoftCare's Web site at: http://www.softcare.de
