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.
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.
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.

Reusable templates are created, allowing content to be repeated for each product or range:
Once the solution has been created, a typical 300 page catalogue version can be created in around 30 minutes, including contents pages and indexes.
