27/12/2010 - NEWS - Digital Arena in New Zealand has deployed 30 licenses of Multi-Find/Change into a large international agency to replace a very slow and cumbersome set of Applescripts which cleaned up retail Adobe InDesign documents. [Read more...]
The Applescripts were migrated from CS1 to CS3 and included several thousand lines of Find/Change code - much of which probably wasn't in use anymore. The scripts included features such as superscript $, superscript .00, remove bullet points, change soft returns to hard returns, apply stylesheets on some find condition etc.
"When we moved the agency to Adobe InDesign CS5, rather than try to migrate the Applescripts, we investigated using Automatication's Multi-Find/Change (MFC). We needed a fast, easy to maintain system which could be deployed on a network with a single point of update. One of the little known features of MFC is the "share" feature which enabled us to provide the client with a single "sets file" shared to all the desktop Macs. When the sets file is updated on the server, MFC displays a "needs update" icon in its interface and one click updates to the new sets.
One last thing which impressed us was the performance. Using the Applescripts, a complex 32 page mailer would take 40-60 minutes to run the cleanup scripts. When we used MFC, the same cleanup operation ran in less than 5 minutes. We recommend MFC to any serious InDesign user - and publishing integrators similar to Digital Arena need to evaluate it for site installations using the share feature!"
