Here is a great review on PageZephyr by Erik Vlietinck of IT-Enquirer.com. The review is well worth the read, for it goes beyond the standard “what is” to useful “how to” information on cross-media publishing:
Finding content in layout documents with PageZephyr
“…I found there’s actually a lot more to PageZephyr than meets the eye, and some of this could change cross-channel publishing in more than one way.
PageZephyr’s Preferences have an option to show document styles, which actually works quite well.
The first thing that I noticed is that you can edit the stories that make up the layout documents…
The second thing is that PageZephyr behaves like a good Mac OS X citizen, i.e. you can drag text snippets from PageZephyr and drop them anywhere you like, including a form in Safari. This allows you to use PageZephyr as a semi-automatic online publishing utility…”
Erik has a lot of fair, honest insights and some great tips and tricks on how PageZephyr can indeed index proprietary file formats for searching and allow you to use these desktop publishing formats. Create stories, as well as mix-and-match the stories into new content. You can search INDD files with this advanced search application to make your cross-media publishing easier.
