What-you-see-is-what-you-get online editing (WYSIWYG) of Adobe InDesign® documents for use in network-based publishing systems.

In recent years, requirements in the publishing market have increased dramatically. Networked applications are becoming more and more important and they are also necessary because of the high cost pressure. Communication times need to be shortened, communication channels need to be condensed. One of the key points is integrating the employees – often “layout, typo and repro workers” – into the production processes. Appropriate technologies are needed for this because document formats are set by de facto standards such as Adobe InDesign.

With iXedit, we provide an innovative and high-performance editor that enables you to edit Adobe InDesign files directly – without formatting issues, following rules defined in the layout. The technology can be integrated into various browser-based or native publishing and web-to-print systems.

iXentric® – The InDesign Server-Manager

With iXentric, we provide a unique server manager that takes over the central control of Adobe InDesign Server instances. The dynamic load distribution and outage control are always ready, as is a detailed log of the system activities. iXentric also forms the basis for our iXedit and iXcopy editors.


iXedit is available as an option for our marketing management solution publiXone, or as a technology for “self-installation” in separate applications. iXedit uses iXentric for server-side control of Adobe InDesign servers.

Licensing is combined with iXentric for instances or in SaaS for sessions.


Konzept-iX received the coveted and unique award for the innovative and platform-independent integration and control of Adobe InDesign servers.
