New magazine publishing software

HL was used as a happy Guinea pig in the development of this software. Outraged with massive, unmovable, dated and expensive magazine publishing software programs that were unable to perform simple tasks, our editors were so delighted to work with something as smart and easy as Pagesorter (which they kept calling “Paginator”) that they never considered switching back and soon demanded that we unsubscribe from the Magazine Manager software entirely.

We were given for 10 months the alpha-version of Pagesorter, which at first had no homepage or a lot of options, but the essence and the fact of moving around pages by just drugging and dropping them, using anything- a mouse, a finger or a nose as our office dog does it- was a relief not only to a pain of organizing pages and printing them out and the fear if the printer and ink cartridges will survive the next issue’s overload. Most importantly, it was a relief of editor’s and designer’s creative flow as they could direct their imaginative powers where they belonged- to art and design, instead of going through the hurdle and pain of sorting pages with dated software and, as a result, printing thousands of pages for each issue.

We’ve never printed magazine pages again in the magazine offices from the moment we were granted an access to Pagesorter. You can just upload pages online and sort them as single pages or spreads. You don’t need any training or software download. A child can do it. After page order is done by an editor, it’s being sent to designers to put pages in order in their InDesign book file and to other editors to write content pages of the next issue.

Pagesorter software is as everything should be in your life- so smart, easy and intuitive that it’s inspiring.

Beta version was just released to the general public and is targeted not only to magazine and books' publishers, but to anyone who needs to organize pages- artists, presenters, lawyers, teachers, students, adults and kids. It is free for use for up to 200 pages.
