Work smarter, not longer

Morgaine Auton
Marketing Assistant, Typefi

Microsoft Japan made news recently when the results of its four-day working week experiment were made public.

Attempting to combat a culture of overworking and burnout, the company implemented a four-day working week, and productivity boomed. Employees were also encouraged to have fewer meetings, set a half-hour time cap, and limit meetings to a maximum of five people.

This Typefi meeting has more than five people. So inefficient!

Not only did employees have more efficient meetings and take less time off, but costs declined, and 92% of workers said they preferred the change. Productivity skyrocketed by a whopping 40%, while the offices used 23% less electricity and 59% fewer print pages.

Unprettify CXML code in Oxygen XML Editor

Peter Kahrel
Scripting Engineer, Typefi

XML and CXML code, when seen as one long string, is pretty unintelligible.

In Oxygen XML Editor you can make that code readable by prettifying it (Oxygen calls it ‘Format and indent’). That’s very useful, but the problem is that because of whitespace issues you can’t edit the code, save it, and use it in a Typefi job.

To use a formatted and edited CXML file in a Typefi job, you’d have to unprettify it to remove all the indents and line breaks. But, strangely, Oxygen doesn’t have such a function. However, you can unprettify prettified code with a simple find-and-replace operation.

DITA + AEM: Lost your design mojo?

Creating visually-compelling print experiences for your customers shouldn’t be a dispiriting experience for you.

However, for many organisations publishing DITA, the sad reality is that producing professionally-designed PDFs is really hard, if not impossible.

It’s time to say goodbye to ugly DITA PDFs and hello to perfectly-crafted print content—automatically!

Typefi, the world’s leading automated publishing platform based on Adobe InDesign Server, now integrates directly with XML Documentation for Adobe Experience Manager.

Need a reason to drop everything and take a break? Typefi has produced a custom set of playing cards to help our customers, friends and trade show visitors PLAY MORE!

Designed by Caleb Clauset, award-winning graphic designer and Typefi VP Product, the card backs come in four colours and feature an interlaced roundel inspired by The Third Knot, a woodcut created by German Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer between 1490 and 1500 (and which, in turn, was inspired by designs created by Dürer’s contemporary, Leonardo da Vinci).

Get your GAAD on!

May 16 2019 is Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). We’re getting our GAAD on by introducing every designer’s favourite font, Comic Sans, into our logo and tagline—just for today!

Why Comic Sans?

According to the British Dyslexia Association, Comic Sans is one readily-available font that may be preferred by people with dyslexia due to its good ascenders and descenders, different forms for capital I, lowercase l and digit 1, rounded g as in handwriting, and letter-spacing.

Restoring native bushland on the Sunshine Coast

Marketing Manager, Typefi

Typefi’s head office is based on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia, an area of extraordinary natural beauty and environmental significance.

Our stunning beaches, rivers, mangroves, mountains, rainforests, and eucalypt woodlands support an estimated 2600 plant species and 850 animal species, making our region one of the most biodiverse areas in south-east Queensland.

Typefi’s Australian team members all feel pretty lucky to live and work where we do, so when we started thinking about ways that we can give back to our community and enjoy a bit of team-building, a bush regeneration project was an obvious choice.

On a rather warm and humid morning in late March, we met Megan Jericho, Community Nature Conservation Officer with the Sunshine Coast Council, at a Council reserve alongside Eudlo Creek in Maroochydore.

Supporting schoolkids in rural Sri Lanka

Chathini Uduwana
Regional Manager Sri Lanka, Typefi

Every year, Typefi’s Colombo team initiates a Corporate Social Responsibility project to enhance local society in some way. Our efforts can range from implementing environmentally friendly policies in the workplace to donating money or essentials to worthy causes.

We like to focus on helping kids in rural schools. Sri Lanka provides free education for everyone, and all the Typefi staff members in Colombo have taken advantage of free education, but often schools in rural and remote areas do not have access to the same resources as those in the city.
