Brand-new MadeToPrint version extends its export & automation capabilities

30 May 2016


Berlin – May 30, 2016 - axaio software, developer of solutions for PDF creation, printing and content correction workflows for the publishing and printing markets, announces the availability of the new MadeToPrint 2.7.300 version.

To make working with MadeToPrint still more comfortable and to serve customers with additional options when working on various native layout applications axaio worked out different practical features, which were integrated into the newest version 2.7.300. The additional features include better management of MadeToPrint jobs and job sets, conversion of Photoshop and Illustrator files and the ability to define InDesign files as output format.

Managing job configurations

MadeToPrint now comes with a configuration manager, which optimizes the handling of different and complex customer or project configurations. Each MadeToPrint configuration can be setup with all jobs and job sets for a particular client, magazine, project etc. Switching between configurations is easy and quick and configurations can be exported and imported so that all settings for a particular project are easily transferred from one system to another. On top of that, MadeToPrint now also allows searching jobs and job sets. Because the search system filters not only on name but on all properties of a job or job set, it’s an incredibly powerful way to find specific jobs or job sets in a large configuration.

Processing native files

The automated versions of MadeToPrint (MadeToPrint Auto for InDesign and MadeToPrint Server for InDesign Server) in this new version are capable of automatically picking up images, Photoshop and Illustrator files from the hot folders. These files are placed in a newly created InDesign document and from there exported according to the settings of the specific job or job set. If you receive such native files, MadeToPrint provides a completely automatic conversion to PDF, image, PostScript or any other file format supported by MadeToPrint.

Exporting InDesign files

MadeToPrint specializes in taking InDesign files and exporting them to various output formats. What is less known is that it is also able to open IDML files and process those. In this new MadeToPrint version, MadeToPrint can now also use native InDesign as output file format. E.g. IDML files that need to be converted to INDD format, can now simply be dropped into a MadeToPrint hot folder and MadeToPrint will save proper InDesign files.
