65bit : EasyCatalog

easycatIdeal for time-critical publications, EasyCatalog can significantly accelerate page make-up time and ensure your documents remain error free.

Trusted by thousands of users in over thirty countries across six continents, EasyCatalog has quickly established itself as one of the most powerful and flexible database publishing solutions for Adobe InDesign.

When data changes at the last minute, EasyCatalog can automatically update your document – or all of the documents contained within an InDesign book.

It’s not just catalogs EasyCatalog can produce – brochures, price lists, or directories can all be effortlessly generated.

Don’t fancy learning a programming language? EasyCatalog Box

You don’t have to – the power of EasyCatalog can be exploited without using any scripting or programming. Those who need to script are not forgotten, though, as EasyCatalog can now be controlled from JavaScript, AppleScript or Visual Basic via the optional scripting module.

Need More?

Five optional add-in modules are now available for EasyCatalog, which extend its capabilities further.

ODBC Data Provider

This link is bi-directional, allowing any changes made to the document to be sent back to the database.

This module is ideal for users whose database is constantly changing, as it removes the need to export your database to a file before importing it into EasyCatalog.

Pagination Module

Paginate your records into an InDesign text flow as anchored boxes (or as plain text if you prefer); at positions specified by your data source, such as page number, X and Y position; or create a layout grid using page guides and watch EasyCatalog position your records at the intersections.

Relational Module

Combine data from multiple data sources which can then be linked hierarchically in a panel within InDesign. When used in conjunction with the pagination module data of virtually any complexity can be paginated, such as products with multiple sets of attributes.

XML Data Provider

Using the XML Data Provider module, EasyCatalog is able to import your data directly from an XML file. This link is also bi-directional, so any change made to the data within InDesign can be updated back to the XML.

Scripting Module

Control EasyCatalog through the power of cross-platform Javascript, AppleScript on the Macintosh or Visual Basic on Windows.

Ideal for power users or System Integrators who need to integrate EasyCatalog into a workflow, the Scripting Module offers a rich dictionary of commands to control and interrogate EasyCatalog.
