MEI debuts FiFi XT 8, Fido 6, Split and Folio

FiFi, Fido, Split & Folio

Managing Editor has released FiFi XT 8.0 for QuarkXPress 8 and Fido 6.0 for Adobe InDesign CS4, along with Split & Folio for both publishing programs. Both FiFi and Fido are designed to enhance the functionality of the company's ad-layout and issue-planning software, while increasing the productivity of paginators when dealing with missing ads. The plug-ins can be used to restore file-path information for graphic and ad files, after the ad map has been opened in QuarkXPress or In Design. The process helps avoid manually linking any remaining empty ad boxes to the appropriate digital files.

Split & Folio XT for QuarkXPress and Split & Folio for InDesign CS4 are both designed to divide a QuarkXPress or InDesign dummy into smaller units that can be dealt out to multiple users. Each new file retains the properties of the original, and includes attributes from the ad-layout software such as sections, page numbers, page folio characteristics and file links. Users can distribute pagination assignments without loosing layout information.

FiFi 8.0, Fido 6.0 and Split & Folio for QuarkXPress or InDesign are now available, with pricing information available from MEI sales reps.
