DesignMerge Pro plug-in

Meadows Publishing has announced a new plug-in for Adobe InDesign CS4, DesignMerge Pro. The software works within the InDesign application and enables variable data publishing, personalized printing, document automation features, and professional mail-merge. It supports text, picture, article, complete InDesign layouts, and master pages. DesignMerge Pro also includes a printing function designed for digital short-run color printers and copiers that are in need of quick throughput, and supports PostScript, PPML, and Creo VPS data printing formats.

Included in the plug-in are both the DesignMerge Rules Module and CopyFit software module. The Rules Module offers conditional processing that provides the ability to perform specific actions based on the contents of one or more database fields. All rules can be attached to links, boxes or pages, and used to modify aspects of the data and document layout. CopyFit works with DesignMerge to automatically correct problems dealing with data not fitting properly in a field within the layout, to help prevent data from being cut off when the document goes to print.

DesignMerge Pro will be demonstrated at the On Demand Conference and Expo, booth #2234. System requirements and pricing have yet to be released.
