This week in PDF has seen updates to a document distribution tool and a printing automation solution.
First up, United Data Strategies has released an update to its electronic document distribution tool. PDF-eXPLODE allows users to convert a report, Microsoft Office document or a mail merge document into a batch of individual PDF attachments and email them to the designated recipients. Used in combination with a task scheduler, users can automate routine, personalized mailings for hands-free delivery. With the release of version 3, the software is now available in server editions and now boasts support for HTML emails, MAPI email clients and fax servers. For more on the latest version, check out the official product website.
In other news, Zevrix Solutions has announced a feature upgrade to its print automation solution for InDesign. The software allows the output of multiple files as single pages, and the automatic updating of links. The update lets users auto-preflight final PDFs with Acrobat droplets or export InDesign files to TIFF, PNG and other image formats. To learn more, check out the official Zevrix website.
