New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I just started a new job for a company that publishes technical and scientific journals and I'm training on Xyvision - a Batch Pagination software program. As a career InDesign user, I'm pretty much out of my element. I'm learning more macros than I know what to do with and getting more and more frustrated every day.
I'm just wondering if anyone can explain to me why this software is used, versus the much more user-friendly InDesign? Or even the more basic Quark? It seems like companies would save boatloads of money on manpower and training if they went to this. Perhaps there is some industry rule that I am missing out on, but I would love to know.
