Toronto (ON) Canada – Zevrix Solutions today is proud to announce the release of Package Central 1.9.18, a maintenance update to the company’s document packaging workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Originally developed for a major publisher in the United States, the software automates the collection of InDesign jobs by processing files from watched hot folders. Package Central solves the problem of centralized packaging and archiving of InDesign projects in a workgroup environment, and can serve unlimited users on a network
The new version addresses several issues related to XMP metadata processing on macOS Sierra. Package Central uses its powerful XMP variables engine to compose the names of target package folders based on InDesign file metadata. The update fixes some XML data entry issues as well as incorrect parsing of XMP element structure reported by users on macOS 10.12.
Under the Package Central workflow, production artists, prepress operators and designers simply submit InDesign files to watched hot folders that reside on a network. The software automatically collects InDesign files along with their fonts and links, freeing user’s time for important tasks such as design and layout. Operator workstations will never again be tied up by the packaging process.
Package Central performs all its tasks automatically on a dedicated Mac station and can run absolutely unattended. The app offers the following key features and benefits:
* Automatically collect InDesign files from hot folders
