Aaxaio Software, developer of automation solutions for PDF creation, printing and content correction workflows for the publishing and printing markets, announces the availability of MadeToPrint update version 2.7.306. Furthermore, it is now possible to consult the new and comprehensive MadeToPrint online documentation.

Aaxaio MadeToPrint facilitates fast output production in environments working with Adobe InDesign/InDesign Server, InCopy, Illustrator and Quark XPress. The plug-in optimizes and extends the output from the preferred layout application to deliver greater productivity and efficiency by reducing human errors through automation and standardization of print workflow processes. Depending on the automation level (Standard, Auto or Server), MadeToPrint allows either manual, hot folder or fully automated server-processed print and export of a design document to one or more output targets.

The new version 2.7.306 of MadeToPrint mainly includes improvements to make the tool more stable and more comfortable to use. Among other improvements the handling of parallel job processing is optimized through enhanced lock files. The use of sections in page labels is extended to have the option to output only pages belonging to a special section. In addition, the handling of the vjoon K4 ticket mode in MadeToPrint was adjusted: now the folder in the IN folder of MadeToPrint is also cleaned up when a document was processed. The token engine of MadeToPrint was extended by a new token (variable), which is called ‘EQUAL.’ Using this token, it is possible to compare if two strings have the same value.

Online documentation for MadeToPrint
Aaxio created an online documentation for MadeToPrint as well, which makes it easy to become familiar with all product functions and offers more comfort when searching for specific requirements or features in the tool. The new documentation can be found on aaxaio website. A free 30 days trial version of MadeToPrint is available on the axaio website and can be used without any restrictions. Practical tutorials are also available.

2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.

The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry. While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.

The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.

Ultimately digital print and other digital channels will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.

Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
