Mimotek announces the release of Mimotek Structuriser 2.0

The second generation of Mimotek’s Structuriser software is now shipping.

This upgrade builds on the success of the original version but offers a significant improvement in productivity, both through its feature set and its performance. The key changes are:

  • Mimotek Structuriser Server 2.0 shows a significant increase in throughput compared with version 1.
  • ­Mimotek Structuriser Plugin has been completely replaced by a new tool, Mimotek Structuriser ClipEdit. Unlike its predecessor, ClipEdit is a stand-alone application and does not require Adobe Acrobat to be installed.
  • When editing an edition of a publication in ClipEdit, all the pages can be opened at the same time, and it is a simple matter to move from one page to another.
  • ­Both the article XML and the PDF clipping can be previewed within the application. The XML, and oversized clippings can be corrected manually if necessary.

There is a video describing Structuriser 2.0 here, and you can learn more from the FAQ and Product pages.
