ClassifiedDesigner, a software for classified advertisement pagination.  ClassifiedDesigner can manage large class hierarchies as well as class headers and filler advertisements. The classified advertisements are sorted by classes, dragged and dropped into the map. There are two Classified Volume views which allow quick and easy page arrangement.

An Assembling Area helps to design the final layout of a classified advertisement page. In addition, there are many useful tools for sorting and arranging advertisements that can be integrated into the Classified Tool Bar.  Predesigned class-headers and filler advertisements are simply dragged out of a palette and
dropped into the page.





The Finished pages can be mirrored vertically or horizontally. Advertisements can be sorted by size or their name. There are various display options that are available in ClassifiedDesigner, Example an option, colour codes the advertisements to show their booking status or their class sections.

The WYSIWYG display during the process makes it easier for the designers to see his changes as they are made. In addition various supplementary information such as contact information or codes, can be attached as notes. Images that are imported can also be checked to see if they conform to the required image-format and resolution.  When an advertisement is saved the DataplanServer automatically creates a print-ready PDF for the advertisement.




The DataplanServer plays a central role in this process. It integrates functions from the Adobe InDesign Server which acts as the primary means of creating a layout for an advertisement.
