There’s a problem when a computer has multiple versions of applications like Adobe InDesign, QuarkXPress, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop installed. Double-clicking a file’s icon will often cause the wrong application version to launch.
As a result, a designer will unwittingly re-save a document into a more recent file format, which is often a bad thing. For example, it could be a customer’s file, and the customer will not be able to open the updated file when it is e-mailed it back to her.
To work around this problem, Soxy was created. Soxy fixes the problem by working as an invisible ‘go-between’ for these applications, a bit akin to a traffic cop.
Over the course of a day, Soxy saves a lot of time: being able to double-click a file is so much faster than first having to verify the file’s version, then drag/dropping it onto the proper application’s icon, or having to use File/Open from within the correct application.
When any of the supported document types is double-clicked, Soxy will open them. It will quickly analyze the file, determine its version (e.g. InDy CS, InDy CS2, InDy CS3, QXP 7, QXP 8, Photoshop EPS, Illustrator EPS…), and it will then forward the document to the appropriate version of the associated application.
Give Soxy a try to see just how useful it can actually be for you!
