Slickplan & Perfect PDFs
Export PDFs…Of ANY Size
One of the suggestions (OK, complaints) we heard time and time again about Slickplan was to improve the PDF export function. It was a valid gripe, as sitemaps that contained a large number of pages and levels often came out cluttered and messy, and because exporting sitemaps as PDFs should make web design life easy – allowing you to store and view an offline copy of your sitemap, to attach or link to sitemaps in emails and to easily print sitemaps. To Slickplan users seeking a solution, the best advice we could give was, “Try to make your sitemap smaller.”
New and Improved Exporting
Fortunately, this was only a temporary solution. The new Slickplan has a vastly improved PDF export function, one that allows for clean exports of sitemaps of any size, layout and color. The size of your sitemaps is no longer a problem because we outfitted the PDF export feature with an auto scale setting that’s compatible with sitemaps of any size, orientation and layout. Any color scheme and business logo can be neatly included in your PDF, which allows you to match each PDF with your client’s branding. While we were at it, we also threw in the ability to export your sitemaps in MS Word, Excel and as an XML file compatible with WordPress.
We’ve taken your suggestions for improvement very seriously and put a lot of thought into implementing what our users consider their most pressing needs for generating sitemaps and planning websites.
Love SlickPlan, but I love the idea of having all the features that are being touted in the Pro even more. When will the features in this posting and previous be available to the regular users? May I say, that we would be willing to pay for the Pro, we just need it!
We’re shooting for January 2012. Make sure to sign up for our newsletter to keep up to date.
Can’t wait to rock the new features for a number of new clients — is there a launch date in sight? Suspense is killing me!
Soon, Sarah! We have to take care of our client’s projects before our own. I can tell you that we’re all very anxious to launch, as well.
