Xinet Releases WebNative Suite Plug-ins to Support Adobe Creative Suite 4

BERKELEY, CA--(Marketwire - April 20, 2009) - Xinet®, Inc., the leader in digital asset management (, today announced the release of WebNative® ID, Annotator ID, and Asset Browser ID for Adobe® Creative Suite® 4. Adobe's Creative Suite (CS) is one of the most popular graphic design, video editing, and web development applications used today. Xinet customers who have migrated to CS4 will now be able to join the powerful capabilities of WebNative Suite's asset management and workflow tools with the new features and functionalities of Adobe's newest Creative Suite.

The Xinet plug-ins for CS4 include:

--  WebNative ID CS4 -- a plug-in for InDesign® that creates previews for
    documents that have been saved after WebNative ID has been installed. These
    previews can be viewed through WebNative, and will contain links to images
    used in the document. Users can also drag and drop images from the web
    preview directly into InDesign documents on the desktop.
--  Annotator ID CS4 -- a plug-in for InDesign that enables customers to
    create PDFs that contain interactive links to images that reside on the
    WebNative server. The plug-in also allows customers to use pre-configured
    FullPress® queues that enable the server to send the print output from an
    InDesign document to a folder relative to the original file location.

    browser within InDesign itself. Designers can drag and drop images from
    that panel directly into layout documents. Additionally, a new layer of
    customization can be added using AppleScript that automates many aspects of
    the design and layout for both images and the metadata associated with
