KyTek releases Autopage® 5.5
Autopage is the most powerful family of QuarkXTensions for the automated page layout of books, textbooks, encyclopedias, directories and yellow pages.
For Immediate Release: October 5, 2001
Weare, NH: KyTek announces the release of Autopage® 5.5. Autopage is one of a family of XTensions to QuarkXPress that automate the layout of trade books, textbooks, journals, encyclopedias, directories and yellow pages. Autopage automatically places art, tables, footnotes, margin notes and margin art, producing visually balanced page spreads while eliminating orphans and widows.
Baseline Grid Pagination
Autopage is enhanced to support more complex layouts requiring baseline grid alignment of all body text lines. Combinations of stacked heads and lists requiring less than leading spacing above and below them are now handled.
Enhanced XML Integration
Autopage is enhanced to support better integration with XMLxt, KyTek's XTension for embedding and extracting XML into/from QuarkXPress documents. This includes an option to arrange to export all non-header and footer text boxes in a document as a single chain, an option to delete all Autopage hidden tags and an option to delete footnote numbers.
Enhanced Index Pagination
The Continuation Line option to Autopage is enhanced to permit more intelligent breaking of lines when multiple levels (up to 4) of continuation lines are being handled as occurs in complex indiceds.
Fixed Page Count Trade Book Composition
A new option available in Autopage® 5.5, significantly enhancing trade book production, allows books to be run to a fixed page count or within a fixed page count range. You can allow a combination of page depth, line leading and line measure (width) to vary to achieve the desired page count. The variations in these variables are made through the entire job, not simply within a few pages.
Autopage first pages the book with optimum settings for these variables. Based on the results a new set of values is chosen. If the new values include a change in measure then the book is first reflowed by QuarkXPress (under control of Autopage) to recalculate the new line breaks and then the entire book is paginated again. The process iterates, all automatically, until a set of values is found that allows the book to satisfy the desired page count.
Autopage is One of a Kind
Autopage is the only automated page layout XTension for QuarkXPress for producing books, textbooks, directories and yellow pages. It does not require a special viewer XTension to view, edit or print the QuarkXPress documents it creates. It 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 compatible with all popular XTensions used in book production for importing tagged text, placing running heads 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.
