    • To output them to different devices in parallel

    • To guarantee reliable output results


    • Save output to pre-defined target paths

    • Standardize file and directory naming by tokens

    • Tailor-made: execute individual scripts if needed

    • Automated output of layer combinations;
      e.g. for multi language documents


    • Checkup on missing images and not loaded fonts

    • Control of InDesign's Live Preflight

    • Post-check on generated PDF files

    • Report generation in case of error

    • One-time configuration of complex output settings

    • Central output machine with fixed settings
      (fonts, preflight, file naming, etc.)

    • Always same, correct output results


    • Standardized output for consistent results

    • Optimized output features for more efficiency

    • Automated output for time and cost saving

    • Once setup, no manual control needed of

    Application example where axaio MadeToPrint inside
    Adobe InDesign makes a big difference

    Your task and conditions:

    • Create and export a Adobe InDesign project in multiple
      languages and format variants to different recipients.

    • Variants: Posters for print and publication on the web,
      other formats for color/black and white printing
      for other channels, etc.
    • Variants could include:

      • Export to single PDF fil containing all different layer views and
        in a format compliant with the latest ISO PDF/X-4 standard

      • Export the default layer view to any of the file formats supported
        by MadeToPrint (PostScript, EPS, PDF, IDML, image formats,...)

      • Export each layer view to a separate output file in
        any of the file formats supported by MadeToPrint
        (PostScript, EPS, PDF, IDML, image formats,...)

    • You perform this type of job regularly (dayly/weekly/monthly/...)
      and often under time pressure to meet promised
      delivery times and quality requirements.

    You have created multiple variants, languages, and
    layers of a design in Adobe Indesign.

    Now begins the long, time-consuming journey
    in making all the different versions:

    • one PDF with all variants and all languages included

    • one PDF per variant, with all languages

    • one PDF per language version, with all variants

    • one PDF per language per variant

    With Adobe InDesign alone, it is a very time consuming task;
    hardly anything you want to do under time pressure or
    as a repetitive or often recurring task.

    What if you could do it with just one click instead?

    With axaio MadeToPrint you solve that task easily.
    With one click, you print and export, at the same time,
    all versions from your design project to one or more
    output destinations/recipients/customers.

    Each recipient gets their ordered job delivered in exactly
    the design, format and in the variants that the recipient wishes,
    with higher quality, and on time.

    axaio MadeToPrint helps you greatly reduce working hours
    to create different versions of a document,
    and increase efficiency and reduce production time,
    by minimizing repetitive job steps.

    Let axaio MadeToPrint take over your repetitive and recurring work steps.

    Recently added features:

    • New Preflight Options
    • The newly added MadeToPrint Preflight option for
      checking for missing plug-ins in the InDesign document,
      ensures the expected seamless workflow.

      Furthermore, you can now separately specify whether to
      check for missing fonts and/or missing links in the document.

      Previously, only both could be set at the same time,
      which did not always meet the customer's output requirements.

    • Job tickets in JSON format
    • In the MadeToPrint job ticket mode,
      new options have been provided to create
      input job tickets in JSON format to cover
      individual customer workflows.

      Moreover, you have the possibility to create
      the result job tickets in JSON format as well,
      by defining it in the input ticket.

      MadeToPrint UI enhancements among others,
      the "MadeToPrint Parameter Overrides" feature
      has been integrated into the general setup panel,
      making it no longer necessary to enter a separate dialog
      and thus simplifying handling.

      In addition,
      more than eight parameters per job can now be
      adjusted in MadeToPrint's standard mode for even
      more individual control of the print settings.

    • Further improvements
    • Additionally, several other improvements
      have been integrated that lead to more safety
      in the automated print output:

        In case that files in the MadeToPrint hot folder
        cannot be processed due to problems,
        for example because of a crash of
        the Adobe InDesign Server,
        they are automatically moved to an error folder
        if an error folder has been set up.

        This significantly simplifies and speeds up
        the process of identifying and fixing problems.

    • Book processing
    • The book processing options in MadeToPrint have been improved and extended.
      Users of this new release can now create single-page output in MadeToPrint
      based on InDesign books as input.

      In addition, it is possible to search for missing document links in
      additional folders when using book mode.
      The pre-processing of books has been optimized in the way that
      it is possible to run pre-processing scripts on all documents of a book.

      Moreover, you can process books now also from older InDesign versions.

    • Local Packaging before output
    • Possibility to collect and package this layout data locally for output.
      This results in a higher output safety by preventing problems
      caused by unpredictable, unstable network connections.

    • PDF post-processing
    • The callas pdfEngine included in MadeToPrint
      has been updated to the latest version.

      For the MadeToPrint PDF Post Process feature,
      this pdfEngine allows to apply new PDF profiles
      from the latest callas pdfToolbox 13 version.
      These include the PDF/X-6 standard which is based on PDF 2.0,
      the future standard for PDF print templates.

      In addition, it is possible to export hyperlinks from
      placed INDD or PDF documents into the exported PDF.

Fields of Application for axaio MadeToPrint in
Adobe® InDesign®/InCopy®/Illustrator® or QuarkXPress® Environments

    For Publishers:

    Publishing environments that use Adobe® InDesign®/InCopy®/Illustrator® or QuarkXPress®
    as their publishing program simply need top efficiency in terms of production procedures.

    Typically, several teams simultaneously work on a large number of documents.
    Against the deadlines!
    Today they still run into output flaws, misprints, issues with layers, etc…
    even with leading layout and publishing tools.

    • MadeToPrint Auto and MadeToPrint Server solve current issues by automating,
      extending, enhancing, and streamlining printing and output processes.
      Predefined jobsets in MadeToPrint provide identical output from every file
      for increased efficiency, as well as considerable time and cost savings.

      Any publisher looking to standardize output in order to decrease
      cost and errors should have a look at MadeToPrint.

    For Printers:

    For conventional or digital full service printers, the production processes leading
    to the final printed document need to be as efficient and reliable as possible.
    Especially when handling specialized documents in multiple languages and versions.

    • MadeToPrint is the ideal gate keeper and offers streamlined and
      faultless production with standardized file naming, adding info bars,
      handling language layers and finally providing a fully imposed ready to print file.
      Needless to say that this adds a tremendous efficiency increase,
      and considerable time and cost savings.

    For Creative Agencies:

    Inside agencies creative and production teams often struggle with insufficient or
    unfriendly document output procedures inside industry leading publishing tools.

    • MadeToPrint relieves designers for all technicalities of preparing files for print.
      It solves output flaws, misprints, issues with layers, etc. by extending,
      enhancing, checking and streamlining all output processes.

    For Packaging Design and Prepress Teams:

    Today, Adobe Illustrator remains the tool of choice for the creation of packaging designs.
    At the same time, PDF is gaining popularity as the file format of choice
    for file exchange and review.

    • With MadeToPrint for Adobe Illustrator, axaio software provides a solution
      to automate PDF output from Illustrator with all the advantages such as
      cost savings and reduced errors.

      For packaging design and pre-press teams, MadeToPrint is the perfect tool to
      automate the creation of different packaging versions, standardize file naming
      and increase output consistency.
      Once an output specification is set up in a MadeToPrint JobSet all files
      processed with that JobSet will consistently fit the same specification.

      MadeToPrint for Adobe Illustrator also allows you to extract all kinds of versions
      from the same master file, for example different language versions,
      low resolution for customer approval, a technical specification version
      for making the die cuts and more.

      Packaging designers and pre-press professionals are now able to create
      PDF files from Adobe Illustrator, without having to worry whether complex
      layer structures are correctly handled, or whether naming conventions and
      other production specifications are set correctly.

    For Production:

    • Production managers can create output jobsets once,
      making them available to all users,
      to get identical output from every workstation with one mouse click.

How to get standardized and quality-assured output using axaio MadeToPrint

    MadeToPrint integrates with Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InCopy, QuarkXPress
    and provides very precise and flexible standardized output control from these applications.

    Standardized how?

    • create an “Output setting”

    • use that output setting to generate output from InDesign, QuarkXPress,…

    • each output setting generates exactly one type of output

      Output Setting:

        Allows setting up:

        • preflight checks and updates to perform
          before starting the output process

        • requested file format

        • options for that file format

        • where and with which name output should go

        • pre- and post-processing scripts

      Output Set:

      • contains multiple output settings

      • use an output set to generate standardized
        output for all output settings it contains

      • then, one keyboard click generates many different types of output

      • use page ranges from settings in Output Settings

      Output settings and output sets only need to be created once

      • Can be exported and shared with others

Output Settings
axaio software MadeToPrint - Settings - Picture

      New feature: Single Page Output

      • Use Single Page Output
axaio software MadeToPrint - Settings - Use Single Page Output - Picture

      New feature: Use Page Ranges from Settings in Sets

      • Use the preset page ranges of each single job when executing a Set
axaio software MadeToPrint - Settings - Use Page Ranges - Picture

      Possibility to define the page range of a document which needs to be output.
      Previously one could only overwrite the page range of all MadeToPrint jobs,
      which were combined in a MadeToPrint job set,
      e.g. all jobs included in the set were executed with the page range 'all pages'.

axaio software MadeToPrint - Settings - Use Page Ranges from Settings in Set - Picture

      The benefit of this new feature is that one can now output exactly
      the defined page range of each single job in a set instead of
      e.g. 'all pages' of all jobs in a set.
      This new setting option means a boost of efficiency as well as a
      more tailor-made and accurate batch processing in MadeToPrint.

Hot Folders Priorities Settings
(axaio MadeToPrint Auto and Server)

    • Allow defining different hot folders to automatically produce
      output from Adobe InDesign jobs dropped into those hot folders.

    • Hot folders can be assigned different priorities which determine
      the order in which folders are scanned and jobs are processed by MadeToPrint.
axaio software MadeToPrint Auto and Server  - Input Folders Priorities Settings - Picture

      This allows setting up prioritized workflows;
      hot folder setups to generate files to be archived can for example be given
      a lower priority than hot folder setups related to urgent production work.

Image smoothing options when Adobe InDesign jobs
are exported to PNG or TIFF images

    • Image smoothing options when Adobe InDesign jobs are exported
      to PNG or TIFF images; making such images more usable especially
      when produced as thumbnails or preview images.
axaio software MadeToPrint - Image Export Smoothing Settings - Picture

      In workflows where layers and layer views are used,
      export of specific layer views by name is supported to increase flexibility.

Tokens - Support for variables that allow flexible output settings
    • The purpose of MadeToPrint is to reduce errors and lead-times
      and as a result increase rentability of production.

      An important part of this process are tokens.
      Tokens are variables that allow output settings in MadeToPrint
      to be more flexible and to incorporate various pieces of metadata,
      ranging from dates and times, over automatically increasing
      numbers to information from editorial systems.

      Tokens are available for many aspects of output settings.
      They can be used to determine where files will be saved,
      how their name will be created and more.
      MadeToPrint contains built-in help to work with tokens and
      allows predefined token lists for recurring needs.

      Four important new tokens have recently beed added to provide information regarding
      • the number of files generated by an export setting,

      • the sequence in that output, and

      • the first and last spread number of the currently exported file.
axaio software MadeToPrint - Tokens - Picture

      A new token (variable), called ScriptLabel,
      has been added to MadeToPrint’s token engine to e.g. standardize
      the folder and file naming even more dynamically.

      This token captures the content of an Adobe InDesign text frame,
      labeled with a specific ScriptLabel, and imports it into the folder or file name.
      This will give the user more options to adjust his workflow set-up
      in a flexibel and tailor-made way.

axaio software MadeToPrint - Tokens - ScriptLabel - Picture

Managing job configurations

    • News: Managing job configurations

      MadeToPrint now comes with a configuration manager, which optimizes
      the handling of different and complex customer or project configurations.
      Each MadeToPrint configuration can be setup with all jobs
      and job sets for a particular client, magazine, project etc.

      Switching between configurations is easy and quick and configurations
      can be exported and imported so that all settings for a particular project
      are easily transferred from one system to another.

      On top of that, MadeToPrint now also allows searching jobs and job sets.
      Because the search system filters not only on name but on all properties of
      a job or job set, it’s an incredibly powerful way to find specific jobs or
      job sets in a large configuration.

      This gives users two possibilities;
      to either export their Adobe InDesign document:

      • as a print PDF, or

      • as an interactive PDF, which can be integrated into websites, tablets,
        mailings, etc. making the content much more vivid and allowing
        interactivity with the reader/viewer.

        All interactive elements that are created in the Adobe InDesign document,
        like for example 'buttons', 'forms', etc. are preserved in the interactive PDF.

Processing native files

    • News: Processing native files
    • The automated versions of MadeToPrint
      (MadeToPrint Auto for InDesign and MadeToPrint Server for InDesign Server)
      are now capable of automatically picking up images, Photoshop and
      Illustrator files from hot folders.

      These files are placed in a newly created InDesign document and from there
      exported according to the settings of the specific job or job set.

      For such native files MadeToPrint provides a completely automatic conversion to
      PDF, image, PostScript or any other file format supported by MadeToPrint.

New user interface for MadeToPrint Server

axaio software MadeToPrint Server UI - Picture

      The old user interface, which was based on Adobe AIR and Flash Player,
      has been replaced by a native application.

      For an easier set-up of the MadeToPrint Server configuration we do recommend
      all customers who are using MadeToPrint together with Adobe InDesign Server
      to install the current Server UI for MadeToPrint. It offers much more comfort
      when configuring MadeToPrint Server and is above all much faster.

      In addition, it offers more options for further development and
      can therefore be adapted more flexibly to customer requirements.
      It is also planned to further extend the UI in the coming months
      into a kind of 'control center' in order to provide the customer with a
      comprehensive response to the status of the processing in the current workflow.
      MadeToPrint Server UI v1.0.003 can be installed separately,
      regardless of which InDesign version the customer is working with.
