EasyCatalog includes additional functionality to support the management of larger catalogs using book files within InDesign.

Using a book file gives your significant advantages, including:

  • Better application performance
  • Ability for different team members to work on different parts of the catalog simultaneously
  • Consistency of styles across the document
  • Maintain continuous page numbering
  • Refresh all data in a single update
  • Export final print-ready PDF as a single document

Product data

Product data used to create book files is held within a single EasyCatalog panel. Loading separate data files for each chapter is not recommended.

Paginated catalog pages

Each chapter or section of the catalog is typically saved as a separate InDesign file.
