Package Central software for Adobe InDesign released

Toronto-based Zevrix Solutions has announced that Package Central for Adobe InDesign is now available on the new and improved Adobe Exchange. Originally developed for a major publisher in the U.S., the software automates InDesign packaging by processing files from watched hot folders. Package Central software automatically collects InDesign files from hot folders on a central system, leaving operator workstations free from the document packaging process. Adobe Exchange provides a new way to search, discover, and install plug-ins, extensions and other content for Creative Cloud products. As a unified destination that brings third-party integrations with Creative Cloud, Document Cloud and Experience Cloud under a single umbrella, Adobe Exchange makes it easier for customers to discover and install integrations that expand and enhance what they can achieve on Adobe’s Clouds. Using Package Central workflow, production artists, prepress operators and designers simply submit files to hot folders that reside on a network. The software then automatically collects InDesign files, along with their fonts and links, using workflow settings assigned to each hot folder. Package Central performs all its tasks automatically on a dedicated Mac workstation and can run unattended. It offers can:

  • Automatically collect InDesign files from watched hot folders
