Managing Editor (MEI), an Adobe premier development partner and a
leading provider of software solutions for the publishing industry,
today announced the releases of FiFi XT version 8.0 for QuarkXPress 8
and Fido Plug-in version 6.0 for Adobe InDesign CS4. MEI also
announced the availability of Split & Folio XT for QuarkXPress 8 and
Split & Folio Plug-in for InDesign CS4. These upgrades for the
company’s powerful add-on tools offer compatibility with the latest
page design software from Quark and Adobe.

Available fresh on the heels of the recent releases of MEI’s Page
Director Ad Layout System (ALS) 5.4, ALS for Magazines 5.4, AdForce
5.4, Classified Layout System (CLS) 3.8 and ClassForce 3.8, FiFi and
Fido are designed to enhance the functionality of MEI’s
industry-leading ad layout and issue-planning software and increase
the productivity of paginators when dealing with missing ads. The
add-ons quickly restore file path information for graphic and ad
files after the ad map has been opened in QuarkXPress or InDesign,
eliminating the need to manually link any remaining empty ad boxes to
their appropriate digital files.

Split & Folio takes a QuarkXPress or InDesign dummy and divides it
into smaller units to deal out to multiple users. The new files
retain the properties of the original, including attributes inherited
from the ad layout software such as sections, page numbers, page
folio characteristics and file links. Users can then easily
distribute pagination assignments without losing any vital layout

FiFi 8.0, Fido 6.0 and Split & Folio for QuarkXPress 8 and InDesign
CS4 are available now. Customers should call their MEI salesperson
for upgrade pricing. For more details, contact MEI at 215-886-5662 or
