Callas Software Introduces New Version of FontIncluder2/XT
Embeds fonts in EPS files directly within QuarkXPress
Callas Software has introduced the new version of its XTension FontIncluder2/XT for Mac OS X and QuarkXPress 6.x. The tool embeds fonts in EPS files directly from within QuarkXPress as part of the "Save Page as EPS" function. In addition, it works as a standalone application where users can drag their PostScript, EPS, or DCS files and all fonts are embedded immediately. Price: approximately $180; $301 for a single-user version ("??149; "??249 for a single-user version).
The company also has launched Command Line Interface (CLI) versions of its pdfCorrect (fixes errors in PDFs) and pdf- ColorConvert (converts RGB/spot colors to CMYK) Adobe Acrobat plug-ins for versions 6 and 7. The CLI modules, which allow users to type in commands instead of selecting from a menu, are compatible with both Windows and Mac OS X platforms; Linux and Sun Solaris editions are scheduled for release in fall 2005. Both are available as standalone applications, as is pdfInspektor3 (analyzes and preflights PDFs), which has recently been licensed by Adobe as a preflight module for Acrobat 7.
