Version 5.7 of publishing solution SoftCare K4 is now available from SoftCare GmbH. The new release of the high-performance editorial system includes several comprehensive enhancements that can help publishers boost productivity using Adobe InDesign and InCopy. Among these features are a new scripting interface for automating customer-specific processes, and the optional K4 Web Editor 2.0, which allows users to write and edit articles to fit in a Web browser and offers more flexibility in including the staff in the work processes.
A major improvement in version 5.7 enables functions specific to the K4 system to be accessed automatically through scripts (JavaScript, AppleScript or Visual Basic), improving speed and productivity by allowing users to automate certain tasks within the editorial workflow.
