Updated and New Macintosh-Based Indexing Systems
Announced by Virginia Systems

June 2, 2011 Midlothian, Virginia. Virginia Systems announced today that it is shipping updated versions of its Macintosh indexing systems, Sonar Bookends Professional and Sonar Bookends Regular. Also shipping is a new entry-level Macintosh indexing product: Sonar Bookends Basic.

All of the products are Cocoa compliant. Sonar Bookends Professional and Sonar Bookends Regular both sport improved interfaces and an on-line manual.

Sonar Bookends Basic is an inexpensive entry-level indexing system which can make either a word-frequency index or a proper noun index. Unlike its two siblings, it does not use an editable list of words and phrases to make an index. Instead it generates the index directly from the document. Multiple-level indexes and reversal of first and last names of people are not supported.

Free demo versions of Sonar Bookends Professional, Sonar Bookends Regular, and Sonar Bookends Basic for the Macintosh are available on Virginia Systems' web site at: www.virginiasystems.com under "Downloads." The demos now allow users to try the products on their own PDF files, but the resulting index cannot be saved, copied, or printed.

Sonar Bookends Professional costs $395 for a single-user license, Sonar Bookends Regular costs $195 for a single-user license, and Sonar Bookends Basic costs $95 for a single-user license.

Updates to Sonar Bookends Professional and Sonar Bookends Regular are free to users who had previously purchased a version of the product after April 1, 2011. Otherwise, a one-year support agreement that includes updates is $195 for Sonar Bookends Professional and $125 for Sonar Bookends Regular. Support agreements can be purchased on the Virginia Systems' web site under "Ordering."

Virginia Systems was founded in 1984 and has a software product line which covers text retrieval, web-site searching, automatic index-generation, cross-referencing, figure/table/paragraph numbering, PDF bookmark and hyperlink generation, and footnote software.
