EasyCatalog is a complete data-driven publishing solution, allowing users to create content automatically within InDesign from product information contained within a database or spreadsheet. It provides a link between the product database and the content, alerting users to any changes as the source data is updated.
EasyCatalog includes powerful tools to assist in the management of your catalogue workflow e.g. highlighting missing images; alerts for updated content etc.
EasyCatalog is installed as an InDesign plugin using a separate installer. An EasyCatalog workflow typically consists of the base module and pagination module which is used to automatically add pages for product content as required.
How EasyCatalog works
EasyCatalog creates content by combining your product data source with a standard product layout – similar to mail merging a letter.
EasyCatalog includes powerful tools to assist you in creating well-designed layouts that can easily be repeated to create hundreds of catalogue pages within a matter of minutes.
Once the solution has been created, a typical 300 page catalogue version can be created in around 30 minutes, including contents pages and indexes.
