CLS, ClassForce update
Managing Editor Inc. has launched two new application updates, Page Director Classified Layout System (CLS) 3.8 and ClassForce 3.8 for Mac OS X. Both programs are designed for automated and semi-automated classified layouts, and contain the same new features. In the latest version CLS and ClassForce are now Intel-native applications, have added contextual menus that help users make changes to individual pages, runsheet items, or the entire issue, and a new measurement dialog which allows users to edit the points-per-unit value and accepted abbreviations of the measurement systems within the software.
In addition, support has also been added for multiple columns inside a single document.
CLS and ClassForce 3.8 now come packaged with CLS XT for QuarkXPress 7.10, and the latest version of the company’s Ad Import plug-in, compatible with InDesign CS2, CS3, and CS4. Support for QuarkXPress 8 is expected to be available soon.
CLS and ClassForce are compatible with Mac OS X 10.3 or later and are free upgrades for current owners with support contracts.
