SAXoAdmin Pro contains modules for defining and managing all parts of the SAXoPRESS system, i.e. defining and managing users & groups, setup of the editorial workflow, the stylebook and rulebook of the newspaper, etc.
The work in the SAXoPRESS system is built up around working with a "product", for example the daily newspaper or an insert. This philosophy is reflected in the fact that SAXoPRESS is based on a "SAXoPRESS Product" containing the relevant descriptions of the different products produced. The definition work for the individual product is performed in SAXo-Engine and SAXoFacility.
SAXoAdmin Pro Basics
This application is the systems administrators tool for adjusting the SAXoEngine. With this tool the systems administrator can create and edit the structure of users and groups, change the standard colors of the SAXo-PRESS software, change priori-ties, implement the editorial, typographical and geometrical definitions, etc. All changes will be active the next time the user logs on to the system.
Changes in the product's settings are reflected at all levels of the SAXoPRESS system. The implementation of the indivi-dual product's stylebook in SAXoAdmin Pro defines the legal story formats and the overall functionality of SAXoTEXT.
The typography definitions are collected from QuarkXPress documents, which ensure con-sistency between the para-meters in QuarkXPress and the definitions in the SAXoPRESS product.
During size calculations and pagination the necessary definitions of the story format are fetched from the SAXoPRESS product. SAXoAdmin Pro enables the systems administrator to change and adjust this basic data.
In the Forms dialogue box the keyboard shortcuts for the typographies are edited.
In the Formats dialogue box all definitions of article formats appear, i.e. definition of typographical sequence and the article geometry during make up.
