Chartbot for InDesign

Chartbot for InDesign


It's easy to create a few charts, but mass-producing them slows down any professional-publishing workflow. With Chartbot, quickly turn out mass quantities of publication-quality charts right from QuarkXPress or InDesign. The results are slick, print very fast, and don't need checking or reworking. Chartbot never makes messy mistakes like overlapping on-chart text.

Most organizations choose between Excel and Illustrator to produce charts for QuarkXPress or InDesign. Simplicity vs. designer looks. Chartbot has both, including automatic on-chart data legends and values.

In traditional methods, multistep, multi-application processes must be repeated for each chart, and for each revision of the source data. They are difficult or impossible to automate reliably. Chartbot cuts the process to one step.

No reworking, no checking. Chartbot eliminates the costly proofing and reworking cycle for charts: it is designed for truly unattended operation on variable data. Set options to automatically do the right thing over wide ranges of data, quantities of data, or missing data. Once set up, a Chartbot chart, in effect, needs no checking over multiple data revisions or versions.

Chartbot's charts usually print at or near the printer's full-rated speed, so even productions printers usually don't slowdown for charts.

Chartbot mass produces charts for professional publishers and mailers. Its hardworking features are focused on creating mainstream chart layouts that intelligently handle varying data without rework.
