The Mother of All Design Wizards

The Page Design Genie: This is what design-challenged people like me have been waiting for.

“Rather than replacing the graphic artist, Xerox’s software is designed to function like a page layout genie that looks over the shoulder of the person creating a document, whether the person is an artist or a graphically-challenged office worker.

The automated document-layout software starts with raw content such as text, graphics, headlines, and diagrams, then arranges them in accordance with sound design principles until the software comes up with pages that look good. If the user adds more elements”

It’s like Firdamatic for print.
