Xcatalog is an XTensions module for QuarkXPress that provides a powerful bi-directional linking tool for creating transparent links between QuarkXPress documents and external data. With these links in place, never enter or update data in two places again (documents and database), rather simply update one or the other from the most current version.This means that one the links are established with the easy-to-use linking tool, changes can be made either in the document or the database, and the changes pushed in the other direction with no extra work. (No intermediate steps such as report creation and extraction are needed.)Xcatalog's links are invisible in the printed layout (but visible while working). Linked elements can be moved between documents freely without loss of linkage.Use Xcatalog to update prices, graphics, or product information - even change versions or swap languages automatically. Accommodating different pricing regions is easy as well. Use Xcatalog to swap the prices in for each region also automatically.Xcatalog has been in production use at hundreds of sites, worldwide, since 1995. It has been steadily improving all these years, based on user feedback.Xcatalog Pro features bi-directional interactive and batch updating. Xcatalog Pro, runs from inside QuarkXPress, under its own menu and is database-neutral when working with snapshot files from any type of database. Xcatalog Pro also links directly with FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Pro run-time applications.Xcatalog Pro's new
get link from contents feature virtually eliminates entering key values. Power linking is quick and easy when coupled with the newly expanded related field linking options. These new features speed up and simplify table linking, too. Use Xcatalog Pro shortcuts and dynamically linked groups to automate page building. Place pre-tagged product blocks on master pages or in a library. Select a group, use the linking palette to enter the product code, and the correct text and graphics instantly flow into the blocks.Combine the power of Xcatalog Pro with Xdata and Xtags (both sold separately) and never make another link by hand. Just embed Xcatalog Pro links in the Xdata prototype statements, and build and link the document at once. Use Xtags to automate the document construction, and pre-tag the links, too. The result a beautiful, automatically constructed QuarkXPress document with links already in place.Find images without full paths or file names. Xcatalog Pro has two new picture-searching features which find pictures and their folders from relative names (i.e., without full path names). Xcatalog Pro also supports fuzzy-picture look up which can find picture files based on partial file names and can employ both alpha and numeric characters.Manufacturer: Em Software Inc.
