The EasyCatalog Scripting Module allows you to produce solutions that meet the needs of your organization. Combined with the advanced scriptability of InDesign, using the Scripting Module you can create an elegant solution completely tailored to your exact requirements.
Other add-on modules are available for more advanced features including:
- ODBC Data Provider for creating two-way links to a database including FileMaker and Access (this requires setup with the OS)
- Relational for working with multiple data sources
- XML Data Provider for importing data directly from an XML file
- Pagination, which is required for doing advanced paginated layouts
EasyCatalog for InDesign is a Plug-in (for both Mac and Windows) that offers a truly simple, intuitive drag-and-drop interface. As the name implies, EasyCatalog is easy to set up and use. Simply connect to a datasource, insert placeholders into your document from the EasyCatalog Panel, apply formatting as you usually would to design elements, group related elements together into a “Product Style,” store your Product Styles in an EasyCatalog Library, and then populate copies of your product styles with records from your database.
