Create transparent links between your Adobe InDesign documents and external data

InCatalog--a plug-in for Adobe InDesign--is a powerful bi-directional linking tool for creating transparent links between your Adobe InDesign documents and external data. With these links in place, you never have to enter or update your data in two places (documents and database), but can simply update one or the other from the most current version.

Version control can be such a headache
Does your document reflect the latest info and prices in your database? Does your data reflect last-minute changes you've made to your document? If you use InCatalog, you know it does.

Fully bi-directional

Once links are established with the the easy-to-use linking tool, changes can be made either in the document or the database, and the changes pushed in the other direction with no extra work. (No intermediate steps such as report creation and extraction are needed.)

Imposes no layout or design constraints

InCatalog's links are invisible to your printed layout (but visible while you're working). Linked elements can be moved between documents freely without loss of linkage.

You can use InCatalog to update prices, graphics, or product information--even change versions or swap languages--automatically. If you have different pricing regions, use InCatalog to swap the prices in for each region--automatically.

InCatalog is also available as Pro-Version. Difference:

Pro Version
InCatalog Pro is the ODBC-capable version of InCatalog and can update documents directly from and to ODBC-accessible databases such as Oracle, SQL Server, Sybase, Access, etc.
