Now everyone can create documents with full-featured typography and layout, using nothing more than a Web browser and an Internet connection.
.EDIT is a sophisticated technology that allows a company to provide
an Internet-based page layout tool to its end users without requiring
the use of any plug-ins. A company deploying .EDIT can create
templates that allow it to maintain its brand/corporate identity by
using approved fonts, design elements, and images. Users can count on
the final output matching the screen, since both use the same
underlying composition engine and fonts. .EDIT is also customizable
to allow companies to choose the set of features accessible by the
end user. Applications of this technology might include sales &
marketing literature, flyers, display advertisements, business cards,
and restaurant menus.
Combining the rich features of Pageflex's XML-based composition
engine with a Java(R) applet client, .EDIT exposes a simple yet
powerful application programming interface (API), giving Pageflex
customers maximum flexibility in integrating the technology with
their website. .EDIT can be used in all stages of the life cycle of a
document including template creation and editing, free-form editing
of document elements (including text and object styling), document
previewing, PDF proofing, and final output.
.EDIT will allow companies to:
Offer applications where users directly select, edit, and style text,
images, and shapes.
Offer "forms-based preview" applications, where users enter data into
forms and see a fast preview.
Help employees stay within corporate guidelines for document design.
Integrate .EDIT into an Adobe InDesign(R) workflow through our
DesignOut plug-in and PDF generation.
Use the .EDIT Client application "out-of-the-box", or customize .EDIT
components to best integrate with an entire Web-based application.
.EDIT will allow end users to:
Edit documents without having to install software.
Create professional-looking documents by adding personal text and
images to well-designed templates.
Create documents that use corporate approved fonts, design elements and images.
Create documents leveraging sophisticated layout and typographical features.
Count on the final output matching the screen, since both use the
same underlying composition engine and fonts.
OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
