AutoPrice & PDF Exporter Customer Testimonial

August 15, 2013 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: AutoPrice, General, Testimonial 

“I have been using AutoPrice for Adobe InDesign for a number of years. AutoPrice helps us update the pricing on each page of our 3,000+ page catalog much faster than trying to update each price individually, and the reporting features help to catch any errors. We also use the AutoPrice reporting features to let us know what part number is on a particular page. In addition, we recently started to use the new PDF Exporter feature which is a very helpful tool that works with AutoPrice. Using this feature, we are able to link the part numbers in AutoPrice, and then use PDF Exporter to automatically export individual PDF files with hyperlinks in place for every single part number. This is a much faster process than using the linking feature in InDesign, and the fact that it is integrated with AutoPrice makes document setup very easy to manage. I have been working with Meadows for several years, and they are very easy to work with and have excellent technical support.”

The AutoPrice Data Exporter module allows you to organize and extract
content (text, picture, and styling information) from any set of Adobe InDesign documents. The extracted content can then be used to populate Web, e-Commerce, or Digital Content databases.

Meadows Publishing Solutions has released software updates for AutoPrice for QuarkXPress 8 and 9. These releases include the following changes:

  • Fixes a problem with assigning Aux keys to a placeholder. Previously the keys did not hold with the placeholder, or QuarkXPress crashed.

If you are currently running AutoPrice for QuarkXPress 8 or 9, we recommend that you update to the latest release at your earliest convenience. The software may be downloaded from our website at:

AutoPrice Technical Support FAQ

Can AutoPrice Update Multiple Documents At Once?

AutoPrice can automatically run updates and reports on multiple documents at once, saving those updates to either the original files or to new copies. To use this functionality, quit all open documents in QuarkXPress or Adobe InDesign.  With no documents open, the menu command AutoPrice>Batch Processing will be available. This functionality is included in all versions of AutoPrice and is not restricted.
