K4 Publishing System 5.5
SoftCare today announced , an update to its InCopy/InDesign soluiton that brings compatibility with Adobe Creative Suite 2. K4 is a standard editorial system for magazines and creative agencies that combines layout and design software InDesign CS2 with InCopy CS2, a professional writing and editing program that tightly integrates with InDesign. The software leverages new InCopy CS2 features such as the ability to place and scale images, dynamic footnote support with preferred numbering and layout options, links to multiple user dictionaries, and more. In addition, K4 XML-Exporter is a new optional add-on production tool that exports all K4 objects to a standardized output format.
"InDesign CS2 and InCopy CS2 increase the efficiency of collaborative publishing processes without sacrificing the quality of individuals," said Chad Siegel, Product manager, Professional Publishing Solutions at Adobe. "Medium-to-large sized publishers can significantly benefit from the advanced collaboration features found in SoftCare's editorial solutions."
Customers using K4 version 5.0 or higher are eligible to receive a free update under the maintenance agreement and can purchase K4 XML-Exporter as an option. K4 supports Mac OS X, including Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger", and Windows clients in mixed platform environments. The server software is available for Mac OS X Server, Windows, SUN Solaris and Linux.
