A division of Bitstream Inc., Pageflex releases a $695 plug-in, called Studio ID, for Adobe InDesign CS4 working in both Macintosh and Windows platforms. With drivers for PostScript, PDF, and PPML output, Studio ID enables users to design, setup, and run variable-data projects directly in InDesign CS4 – meaning there is no need to convert files into a Pageflex format.

Studio ID includes a point-and-click business rule editor for creating if-then-else rules, and support for Adobe ExtendScript when a project requires more complex rules. “Along with basic variable data features for changing text and images, we’ve incorporated some of the more advanced functionality… [including] our extensive scripting API called Pageflex Actions, which can be used to dynamically manipulate every aspect of an InDesign document on-the-fly,” explained Jeff Perk, Director of Product Management at Bitstream.

With Studio ID, users can prepare variable-data templates and projects for use in Pageflex Storefront, a Web-to-print application. These templates then can be packaged and uploaded to Pageflex Storefront, while files remain in the native InDesign format throughout the Pageflex Storefront workflow. Pageflex Storefront 7.0 now includes integration with Adobe InDesign CS4 Server so that native InDesign documents can be selected, customized, and ordered through a Web browser.
