New Data Architecture for S1000Dmanager
Inmedius Support Team Ready to Assist on Upgrades

If you are ready to upgrade to S1000Dmanager v5.0, there are several important factors to consider:
  • Manager v5.0 only supports upgrades directly from v4.6. 
  • After the software is upgraded to v5.0, you will need to run the database conversion tool. Detailed instructions are provided on page 85 of the S1000Dmanager User Guide
  • All existing customers should upgrade to the single server installation option. If installing a system with a front and back end installation, contact Customer Support for assistance after completing the upgrade and customer user acceptance testing. Single server installation instructions start on page 10.
To schedule an upgrade, please complete the pre-installation survey found in the Customer Portal and return it to Customer Support; our team will then work with you to schedule a convenient time for the upgrade.

Stylesheets Training Sessions in Germany

In March, CDG hosted a complimentary three day stylesheet training workshop in Germany for customers moving from Inmedius® S1000Dtransition™ to S1000Dpublisher, or upgrading to Publisher v2.0 which features PDF publishing integrated with Inmedius® S1000Dmanager™ v5.0.

Publisher has an extensive configuration model that allows stylesheet designers to customize PDF output to meet formatting specifications. This configuration model was the focus of the training workshop which allowed Inmedius product management representatives to work closely with customers.

Led by David Lowe, CDG Product Manager, the workshop provided users with the foundation skills to configure and customize PDF output for Publisher. Designed for stylesheet designers, eight different hands-on training sessions included an overview of Publisher, essential preparation, customization and basic skills, typography/text, page layout, auto-generated preliminary pages, section numbering, implementing a page layout specification, and a final practice session where clients could pose “how do I?” questions.

"Providing customers with deeper product knowledge facilitates more in-depth system use, flexibility and independence,” explained Lowe. “The ability to customize extends the functionality of Publisher to meet customers’ unique needs and the requirements of their clients."
