Ad and account browse: from the account search screen, you may browse lists of accounts or ads. Locating an ad without name or telephone number is a simple as typing the category and first word.
Items can be placed in queues by rate tables or the report generator modules. This means you can build resolicitation or questionable account status queues and work through them without printing a list and repeatedly searching.
Selective account detail views. When account detail lists are displayed, you may choose to view: all items, ads only, invoices only (open-item accounts only). In the invoice view, when you select an invoice and press enter, the invoice's detail list is displayed.
Rate-sensitive messages, queuing. The rate table programming language can do a lot more than compute charges. It can be used to pop up messages to the operator, sound beeps and place ads in queues. The language also supports long variable names and many other useful features.
Override flags. The ad-entry module flags ads that have had their automatically computed charge, text count or inserts-to-date count overridden by an operator. It is easy to print reports on these ads.
Enhanced report generator facilities include: new variables, queue building, the ability to access ad text information from ad-based reports and the ability to access ad information from detail-based reports. These capabilities make it possible to do more complex invoices, among other reports. Several report generator modules may be run from batch files with report definition files and output specified as command line arguments.
Deadline verification on new ad scheduling. The classified system can lock out ad scheduling for editions that have already been typeset.
Advance typesetting format setup. The typesetting format maintenance module offers run-time selection of typesetting drivers. Proofing and typesetting modules allow choices of PostScript, ClassLink for Quark, InDesign, Rich Text Format, HTML or Generic typesetter output drivers at typesetting or proofing time. You can also specify default output drivers for each format table using the typesetting format setup program.
Improved spell checking. A built-in spelling checker eliminates the need for the memory-resident spell checkers employed by previous versions. The new dictionaries include nearly 50% more words than version 4.0�s dictionary.
Dual-Language hyphenation incorporates excellent Spanish-language hyphenation. Language may be chosen by typesetting code or macro, so that English and Spanish ads may share the same database. Spanish spell�checking is also available.
