Carson City, Nevada, USA and London, UK – ThePowerXChange and XChange UK, the sources for extended technology worldwide are excited to announce a new bundle which offers users more than GBP700/$1000 savings on database publishing tools from 65bit Software. The EasyCatalog Power Bundle is available only for a limited time and includes a license of EasyCatalog plus 5 powerful modules that provide users with total control over their data throughout the production process. Modules included in this bundle are the Scripting Module, Pagination Module, ODBC Data Provider Module, Relational Module and the XML Module.

Ideal for time-critical publications, EasyCatalog can dramatically speed up page make-up time and ensure documents remain error free. Trusted in more than twenty countries across three continents, EasyCatalog has quickly established itself as one of the most powerful and flexible database publishing solutions for Adobe InDesign.

The source of the data can be something as simple as a file or, via the ODBC Data Provider Module,an ODBC database or XML file. If users have invested time and money developing a database, they can utilize it to the fullest extent by producing their catalogs directly from it. It’s not just catalogs that EasyCatalog can produce – brochures, price lists, or directories can all be effortlessly generated.

EasyCatalog also offers powerful ways to get data onto the document. Templates can be designed that specify how a record should appear when it appears on the page. Users can store these templates in a library and complex pages can be constructed in seconds, containing live data, simply by dragging and dropping.

The power of EasyCatalog can be exploited without using any scripting or programming. Those who need to script are not forgotten, though, as users can customize control of EasyCatalog through the power of cross-platform Javascript, AppleScript on the Macintosh or Visual Basic on Windows. Ideal for power users or system integrators who need to integrate EasyCatalog into an existing or bespoke workflow, the Scripting Module offers a rich dictionary of commands to control EasyCatalog.

Users can link their data to an InDesign document which means both text and pictures can be imported at the click of a button. The link is bi-directional, so any changes made to the data within the InDesign document can be sent back to the data source. By creating a link from their database to their document, users can ensure that their document always contains the latest information from their database, ideal for publications where source data changes frequently. EasyCatalog can also check the integrity of a user’s documents to ensure the document content matches the data source as well.

EasyCatalog makes creating dynamic InDesign tables easy. Users can utilize their EasyCatalog data panel to define the running order of records and fields, and select the insert button. A new InDesign table will be inserted in the current document, containing their live and linked data.

The new EasyCatalog Power Bundle is available now for a limited time through XChange UK and ThePowerXChange worldwide. To order, or for more information, users can visit the websites.
