KyTek enhances QuarkXPress automated long document layout with Autopage® 5.4
Autopage is the most powerful family of QuarkXTensions for the automated page layout of books, textbooks, encyclopedias, directories and yellow pages.
For Immediate Release: April 5, 2000
Weare, NH: KyTek announces the release of Autopage® 5.4, the XTension to QuarkXPress that automates the layout of trade books, textbooks, journals, encyclopedias, directories and yellow pages. Autopage automatically place art, tables, footnotes, margin notes and margin art, producing visually balanced page spreads while eliminating orphans and widows.
Line Numbering / Footnote Numbering by Line Number
Autopage® 5.4 supports line numbering and footnote numbering by line number. You control how often the numbers are placed, the style applied to the numbers and the location of the numbers beside the text. When numbering footnotes by line number then line numbers are automatically placed on every line containing a footnote reference with independent control of the style.
Hidden tags can be placed on lines to reset the line count to a particular value, to skip a line in the count and to disable and enable line numbering within the document. A user defined style can be applied to paragraphs that should be treated as a single line regardless of how many lines the paragraph actually contains.
Enhanced Run-in Footnote / Global Footnote Capabilities
Autopage® 5.4 adds the ability to force a footnote to begin a new line when footnotes are otherwise run together. Run-in footnotes are also extended to include global footnotes.
Enhanced Floating Art Placement
Autopage® 5.4 has enhanced capability for placing floating art or tables within a particular columnar layout. A sample page can be seen in the associated PDF.
Autopage® 5.4 supports floating folios (page numbers) a fixed distance below the last body text baseline on a page as is often done in tradebooks. You can control how far below the baseline the folio boxes are displaced.
Enhanced User Interface
Enhanced Document Quality Control / Multi-purposing and Structured Document Archival
Autopage closes the loop between the need to maintain documents in a structured text format, like SGML, for archival or multi-purposing while easily converting into and out of QuarkXPress to take advantage of its unparalleled layout ability.
Autopage® 5.4 provides enhanced document statistics to provide an indication of how easy it will be to export an Autopage created QuarkXPress document as a tagged text file including all referenced art, tables, side art, side notes and footnotes. The enhancements include summary information about how well structured a QuarkXPress document is as well as additional details about problems in the structure.
Autopage is One of a Kind
Autopage is the only automated page layout XTension for QuarkXPress for producing books, textbooks, directories and yellow pages. You can view, edit or print Autopage created QuarkXPress documents without the Autopage XTension or any special viewer XTension. It is the only XTension that creates easy to edit documents with text boxes linked naturally and spacing adjustments made in the paragraph formats dialog where they are easily accessed and modified whether or not Autopage is loaded. It is the only XTension that is compatible with all popular XTensions used in book production for importing tagged text and creating tables and math equations.
KyTek is the leading developer of XTensions that automate the layout of book, directory and yellow pages with QuarkXPress.
