Infomaker Grafix Planner simplifies the management of recurring, pre-produced graphical elements such as comics, crosswords, sudokus, stock market pages, tv-channel pages, etc. Grafix Planner ensures that comics are published once, not twice. Import and deletion of published graphics happen quickly and easily, which saves a lot of time.
Infomaker Grafix Planner can be viewed as a calendar for graphical material. You import the graphics to the calendar, and the calendar keeps track of which days the graphics should be used. By immediately connecting the graphics to a publishing date, the process of finding the right graphics for the right page and of deleting the graphics after publication is greatly simplified. In this way, the risk of publishing the same graphics two days in a row is minimised. The main aim of IGP is to significantly simplify a recurring and circumstantial process. IGP makes your life easier!
Graphics that are to be used in IGP are imported through drag-and-drop. Thus, two months of comics can be imported through one simple process. You do not need to think about how to name the comics or on which days the comics should be published. IGP takes care of this for you.
Page design is even simpler. You choose the command Update Document in the IGP menu that you can access from your layout software. Then IGP makes sure that the right graphics are assembled in the right place on the page. If graphics are missing, you will be informed of this.
IGP allows you to schematically monitor all graphical material one week ahead. This makes it easier for everyone in the organisation to discover if some kind of material is missing.
You can decide what kinds of graphics you want to see in preview mode. You may need to make sure that a certain comic is in chronological order, or you may want to check what graphical material will be found on a certain type of page on a particular day.
DELETION OF GRAPHICS
The Deletion Window in IGP allows you to delete graphics with ease: Simply inform the system which types of graphics are to be deleted and how old they must be. One or several types of graphics can be deleted.
