Hybrid Software releases new version of Packz PDF editor for labels and packaging

January 14, 2022  By PrintAction Staff

Version 7.5 of Packz, Hybrid Software’s native PDF editor, delivers the next generation of prepress software for labels and packaging. Stepz 7.5 is being released concurrently for digital printing applications. Both tools provide bespoke solutions for preparing packaging files for conventional or digital printing.

Production jobs in the packaging industry have been increasing and, as a result, many package printers and converters are converting to data-driven production. Pactions 7.5, the automated toolset in Packz and Stepz with parameterized action lists, responds to the needs of these customers for advanced automation. This tool decreases the amount of operator time needed to get a new package design edited, approved, and printed and connects to packaging RIPs, workflows, and digital front ends. Pactions can also be used for barcode generation, including the GS1 Digital Link Datamatrix code.

Both Packz and Stepz 7.5 support the newest M1 processors from Apple for real-time editing.
