Version 2.0 of .EDIT, a browser-based application for the design and editing of desktop publishing documents, is now available from
Version 2.0 adds features to support high-resolution PDF and PostScript output, Mac OS X browsers, proxy servers, and development servers. And with the new capacity for high-resolution output, .EDIT is now a standalone product; previously, it depended on users having Pageflex’s Mpower database solution. Performance is also better than in version 1.0, according to Pageflex.
Designers can now create templates that maintain corporate identity by using approved fonts and images. They choose the specific editing capabilities to give to users and can lock portions of the template from any change at all. Authorized visitors to the .EDIT Web site can then interactively modify the text and images within the assigned permissions, customizing the documents in real-time to meet specific needs. .EDIT also offers soft-copy proofing and correction.
A demo of .EDIT 2.0 is available at the Pageflex Web site. The company requests you contact them for pricing structure information.
