What is the Flat-Plan software used for?

It is the most effective, online flatplan tool available. It is designed for publications, especially magazines, but is also useful for smaller books and papers under 1000 pages. Using it you can create a sheet which immediately displays your plan (articles, adverts, etc). If you want to instantly renumber pages or are fed up with clumsy file formats, forget about it! Flat-Plan will create your flatplan instead of you!

 

 

 

This is the only downloadable flatplanning software available in six languages (English, Spanish, German, French, Russian, Italian)*. Don't miss out!

Real People, Real Thoughts

Flat-Plan helps with the organization and production of each of our issues. It's a great tool that provides a clear understanding of the editorial and ad divisions of each issue. One thing I would like to see improved is the size at which you view it on screen and the size at which you print it out. Other than that we enjoy using the product each month.

I have used many publishing layout programs but find Flat-Plan the most simple to use and effective. There are nominated areas on each page to specify the editorial section, subsection and advertisements. Pages are easily moved, swapped, inserted and deleted. Colour coding sections is also beneficial, as is the automated percentage content calculator and number of advertisements featured. Best of all, it is affordable. Well done. I am a fan.

Real People, Real Thoughts

Before finding out about Flat-Plan I had never used this type of program before and I was a bit nervous about figuring it out. Flat-plan is so easy to use, and the support staff are efficient and helpful. I now use the program year after year. Flat-Plan has been a huge asset to the Production arm of our magazine business and I highly recommend it.

Flatplan and Flatplanning

A flatplan is a working map of a publication as it is being produced. It shows where the articles and adverts are laid out, and in what order. Without a flatplan, the Production and Advertising Directors struggle to control which pages go where, making signing off on a publication incredibly difficult and time-consuming.
Initially, flatplans were drawn out on pieces of paper the production team stuck to their wall. As pages moved around and advertisements were booked (and cancelled) the pages were annotated and amended.
