With only EasyCatalog, you can accelerate the production of catalogues, price lists, data sheets and other printed media, dramatically. However, there is no workflow support shipped with EasyCatalog. Several duties remain in real-life scenarios during production, including:
Workflow Automation for EasyCatalog
- Pagination of your products' data
- Updating furniture on pages
- Updating table of contents
- Updating numbers in an InDesign book
- Generating print and screen PDFs side by side
These tasks, amongst others, will have to be performed again and again during production, meaning lots of manual effort.
Additionally, imagine you need to produce your catalogue or price list in many different languages, also the effort multiplicates to a huge total expenditure.
The UST pagination helper for EasyCatalog offers you a convenient way of configuring your production with a graphical user interface. Settings will be remembered from session to session. At the end, you will only need a few clicks for the whole production of your catalogue. The pagination helper will do everything for you, starting with the generation of the product sheets, followed by updating e.g. the TOC, page numbers and ending in final generation of screen and print PDFs.
This workflow automation utility comes as an InDesign script. Aside from the license for the script itself, you will also need licenses for the EasyCatalog basic installation as well as its pagination and scripting modules.
