In the age of modern information delivery, there is still a need to deliver paper-based publications and manuals. Easy-to-use, Transition efficiently publishes structured S1000D Data Modules into common types of print output. With Transition, publication managers consolidate the work of producing information in other popular formats, rather than parallel efforts to produce both S1000D information and other printed manual formats. Transition simplifies and expedites the process. The software includes robust LooseLeaf Publishing capabilities, including; Effectivity Processing, Change Page Management, Dual Column Language and Multi-Volume Publishing. Users can format print output to produce S1000D and other commercial or military specification-based documentation.
Transition dynamically creates preliminary matter, including Title Page, Table of Contents, and lists of acronyms from the Publication Module structure.
Transition and the integrated Inmedius S1000D Publishing Suite is a complete, end-to-end solution to successfully manage the technical documentation publication process. In parallel with S1000Dmanager, Transition transfers all the power stored in the S1000D Data Module into their logical equivalents in other formats, including PDF, print, and a variety of commercial and military equipment specifications. Transition also integrates seamlessly with S1000Dinteract and S1000DauthorPro to ensure that users who encounter information in one medium, experience minimum productivity impact when that data must be delivered in another medium.
Information codes are utilized to identify these sections with other list types possible, based on generated content. Final publications may contain additional matter not found in the source S1000D Data Module.
Transition dynamically creates preliminary matter, including title page, table of contents and lists of acronyms from the Data Module content.
Specify titles to appear at the beginning of each chapter section and sub-section in order to have the PDF output mirror a conventional printed copy. Output can be tailored with configurable titles and numbering. The S1000D software uses logic to highlight unresolved references, and replicates any directory structure that might exist between S1000D published documents.
Converts the <refdm> elements to PDF links and automatically names and numbers chapters, sections and sub-sections according to the position of source files in the PM structure — providing an interactive PDF file to the end user.
<reftp> elements within a multi-volume publication are also converted to PDF links, allowing them to be linked to external publications. <xref> elements are retained as internal links.
Allows printing of a composite publication with separate volumes, where each volume is a standalone publication. Publications can be divided by:
Collections of Applicabilities relevant to a particular S1000D publication are defined in S1000Dmanager and selected as part of a Looseleaf printing in Transition.
Supports filtering and processing logic.
Inclusion and exclusion of Data Module content based on a selected Effectivity for print output.
Data Module content, whether filtered to an Effectivity or not, can be labeled according to the descriptive title assigned to the Applicability
Manage updates, additions to a document during its lifecycle; only producing output for pages that have changed. The software generates point pages and paragraph breaks. Using the PM, the system stores a list of Data Modules that reflect this hierarchy as chapters, sections and subsections. Transition allows control of:
Use a common data source document for both military and commercial publishing. Output S1000D documents to other output types and publication specifications, including:
|Click on the document thumbnail for a full-page, PDF view|
Publish documents in two languages, side-by-side on the same page.
Convert either a single PDF file for each Data Module, or merge a series of Data Modules into one linear PDF with Inwork Markings and Time Stamp. There are three publishing options:
Efficiently perform batch tasks on source files, including:
Transition requires several other software applications to be installed on the same machine. The system requirements over and above what these applications require are:
