Hybrid Software releases version 9 of its Packz PDF editor with enhancements in design automation, colour management, 3D visualization, advanced trapping, and ganging of multiple jobs in a single print layout. These new features make Packz the only all-in-one editor for labels and packaging graphics that runs on both Mac and PC platforms.
“Nearly 10 years ago we released the first version of Packz with the goal of providing a ‘Swiss Army knife’ of prepress tools in a single application, supporting both Windows and Mac, with no need for plug-ins. We’ve been very successful in this approach and have sold more than 5,000 copies of Packz, but many users still relied on other software for package design, 3D rendering, colour management, ganging, etc. But with recent acquisitions by Hybrid Software Group, as well as continuous innovation by our crack team of software developers, we’ve closed that gap with Packz Version 9, and we will increase our customers’ efficiencies even further in future versions,” said Patrick Coussement, co-president of Hybrid Software.
Packz 9 adds support for Content XML, an automated tool for managing nutrition facts and ingredients panels, anti-counterfeit labels, language translations, and variable data for digital output of labels and packaging.
