SDL XPP has a strong track record of continuous improvement. Regularly taking input from wishlist sessions at user group conferences and strategic planning meetings with active customers, the XPP team consistently adds new features and abilities that enable customers to stay current with industry best practices and emerging technologies.
The XPP 8.4 release continues that process by adding three key features:
• Enhanced ability to work with tabular data
• A new style development tool to provide more immediate feedback in creating and modifying styles
• An XML Export capability
The XML Export tool enables both the content and the information about how it is formatted to be exported from XPP in XML format. That XML instance can then be converted to an alternative delivery format. All publishers today face a proliferation of target devices and formats. XPP’s XML Export feature opens the way to continue to produce high quality PDF while automatically branching the processing stream to produce parallel output formats to meet the multiplying demands for other platforms in an efficient and affordable way.
