The SAXoPRESS Publishing System is based on the concept of working with a "product" defined in the database.
Most publishers produce several publications (for example, the daily newspaper, a weekend tabloid section, and occasional monthly special sections). Each of these publications will be defined as a Product in SAXoPRESS.
Products have many settings that are predefined in the SAXoPRESS system to allow all users to work efficiently together.
The structure of users/groups and their access
to different module
The categories, priorities, and status levelswhich make
up the work-flow of that specific publication
The editorial typographical and geometrical
definitions (the Products stylebook)
SAXoAdmin is the graphical tool that lets system administrators define and change those settings. Changes are reflected at all levels of the SAXoPRESS system.
The most important of these settings are the stylebook definitions.
The implementation of the individual Products stylebook in SAXoAdmin defines the legal story formats and the overall functionality of the SAXoTEXT module.
During size calculations and pagination, the necessary definitions of the story format are fetched from the SAXoPRESS Product.
In addition, SAXoAdmin manages the way the system processes incoming wire agency feeds and the system import utility (Multiconverter).
In the SAXoPRESS Publishing System, each of the publications you print has a collection of information which describes the production environment for that product. This collection of information is the SAXoPRESS Product of that specific publication.
SAXoAdmin is the system administrators tool for editing the setup for the specific Product.
Enter or modify users, fonts, storage vo-lumes, and keyboard macros. The preferences for the individual user are the same for all Products defined in the SAXo-PRESS database.
For each Product, using SAXoAdmin, admi-nistrators may define or modify:
Categories - Picture and story categories
for routing elements through the system
Groups - Groups of users
Quark Stylesheets -Text formatting information
Article Formats - Collections of Quark Stylesheets
that make up how text is presented in your publication
