Managing Editor Inc. (MEI) has released Ad Layout System XTension — a plug-in for QuarkXPress 6 and Mac OS X.
MEI’s Page Director Ad Layout System (ALS) and AdForce combine to provide advertising layout and management capabilities for QuarkXPress-based publishing workflows. The software produces paginated ad dummies, and features a variety of automation tools, all aimed at small to mid-sized publications.
The new ALS XTension enables QuarkXPress 6 to open ad dummies from ALS or AdForce; users can open an entire ALS or AdForce issue or just selected page ranges with all display ads in place, according to the developer. Live links to the digital ad files are embedded, and ad info can be imported into info boxes placed into a separate layer on QuarkXPress pages.
MEI’s Ad Layout System XTension for QuarkXPress 6 is
available for download from MEI’s Web site.
