2. The workflow in detail
AdConn is realized as a plug-in for QuarkXPress or Adobe InDesign and controls most details of the workflow. It get's its data from the advertising system and creates or opens a document for editing. Geometry and colors are provided as specified by the system. The plug-in monitors the user and take control on saving and closing the document. It checks geometry and used colors, shows warning or error messages, if necessary and creates an eps or pdf file for postprocessing or production purposes. Finally it switches back to the advertising system, the user don't have to deal with any details of the workflow and can concentrate on designing the ad.
