SAXoTECH - Products - Product List - Layout Module
The Layout module offers an ideal environment for handling QuarkXPress documents as well as unique possibilities of monitoring the production. The monitoring is done via a full-size preview of the QuarkXPress document or as thumbnail images in a Browser window.
Enables local journalists to have the opportunity of viewing the make up process without having QuarkXPress installed.
Direct connection to QuarkXPress for document opening.
Production monitoring is provided via the status of each individual QuarkXPress document and the possibility of viewing a full-size preview of the document.
The Layout module is the make up editor's primary tool. From here the production of newspaper pages in QuarkXPress is controlled.
The overview is divided into logical areas, making operations with QuarkXPress documents and libraries easy and simple for the user. At the bottom of the window a document list shows information on the present status in the production process of each individual document.
The contents of the list are controlled by the chosen worksets (the contents of which folders in the production systems does the user want to see) and the date. The Layout module thus allows working with staggered publication dates. The contents of the list are continuously updated, allowing the user to keep track of the latest developments.
Moreover, the Layout module offers facilities, allowing the user to transmit the page for technical ad updating and final printing.
The Layout module is available in a special version capable of interacting with the AdBase ad system.
The Layout module overview offers the user clear and simple features, facilitating the daily handling of QuarkXPress documents and libraries. When the list is shown as a text list, the status of each individual QuarkXPress document is shown as an icon on the list.
When the Layout module list is shown as mini previews, the user is provided with an exact overview of the production status of all newspaper pages.
