MadeToPrint for InDesign was developed to streamline and enhance one of the most neglected, but vital aspects of InDesign: printing.
At its simplest, MadeToPrint for InDesign combines all the aspects of a given print job into a simple selectable item. These can include: the desired printer on the network, any special settings required for that device in the [chooser], [page setup], and [print] settings (including custom separation definitions and registration-mark text and placement). In addition, MadeToPrint for InDesign allows for grouping of multiple print-job definitions into custom sets that can be invoked at any time to output the same document to multiple output devices, using the parameters specified for each device in its own print job. This means that with a single operation, a user can elect to have a document output to a black-and-white laser printer, a color-proofing device, and a high-resolution imagesetter -- and be assured that all settings in all dialogs are correct. Thus, MadeToPrint for InDesign reduces media waste caused by improper settings of [chooser] selections, and allows for unattended output of InDesign documents to any variety of formats. Features: · [infobar], a user-definable, automatically generated job slug printed at the top of every output page that can contain comprehensive information about the document, the workstation, and the user creating the output; · optionally replaces specific graphics automatically during output with a uniformly colored area, based on the graphic type or characteristics in the file name, to assist in manual film-stripping workflows; · provides powerful tools for working with print-to-a-PostScript-file functions; · optionally auto-generates a print-file name depending on and composed of several variables including current date and time, user ID, document name, page number, last modification date and time, name of workstation or startup volume, and so on; · automatically creates one PostScript file per document, spread, or page; · printing of a gallery (a crossbreed of printing thumbnails and the LaserWriter n-up feature) with added flexibility (very useful for printing overviews of multipage documents or customized presentations of documents); · print picture info (print the name of a picture inside every picture box for documenting and tracking picture usage for picture-laden publications such as catalogs); and · create one EPS for the content of every page rather than printing the page (the bounding box will be the enclosing rectangle of the elements on that page on a page-by-page basis). In addition to InDesign printing options, MadeToPrint for InDesign CS now allows the saving of different EPS output settings as jobs, as well as the specification of copies and page areas while executing print jobs. Besides the automatic generation of information such as, for example, date and time, an ask-token mechanism enables users to edit file and job names during job processes. As a result, MadeToPrint for Adobe InDesign CS 1.1 is able to adapt data in order to comply with the naming conventions of different workflow environments. The single-page output contains additional options to generate PostScript, EPS, and PDF, not only per page, but also per spread. | Manufacturer: callas software gmbh
