With eXtyles, we saw a quick and substantial return on our investment. We’ve not only saved time and improved the quality of our publications; we’ve also significantly cut our production costs.

Anne Vinnicombe

Vice President of Production and Electronic Publishing at Thieme Publishers New York

Setting aside the fact that eXtyles admirably performs as advertised, what I appreciate about the Inera team is that they come through on their promises: deliverables arrive when expected and run as expected. This sets them aside from many other software vendors.

Barry Bergin

Production Manager at American Concrete Institute

We find eXtyles to be an excellent partner because of their dedication to serving their customers.

Chris Hausler

Now that production sees how well the eXtyles conversion works, they wish they had done this years ago!

Jim Bender

We're definitely loving the advantage we're getting just straightening out references.

Larry Klein

Production Manager at the American Society for Microbiology

We don’t like to think back to the days when we didn’t have eXtyles for Optics Express production. We’re having great success with the software.

M. Scott Dineen

Director of Editorial Services at the Optical Society of America

Our return on investment in eXtyles is Inera’s commitment to the quality and adaptability of its product, the expertise of its staff, and the sincerity with which that staff interacts with its customers.

Peter Olson

eXtyles is the only tool we never consider changing or removing from our workflow.

It's a pleasure to promote eXtyles, as it really does magic in our documents.

eXtyles User Group Meeting 2016 Training Courses

The primary eXtyles User Group Meeting (XUG) was held on Thursday, November 10. On Friday, November 11, Inera offered two in-depth eXtyles training courses. Course descriptions are provided below.

Morning Course

eXtyles Best Practices Workshop

Presented by the Inera Staff

eXtyles continues to improve and expand, and even the most seasoned eXtyles user may be unaware of some of the newer features and enhancements. This half-day course is devoted to best practices and tips and tricks for getting the most out of eXtyles. Topics covered will include improvements to handling of ever-more-complex publishing requirements and documents, managing pesky errors from Word or XML parsers, and much more.

The eXtyles Best Practices Workshop is a lecture-style course. Attendees are free to bring laptops, but laptops are not required.

Afternoon Course

eXtyles Advanced Auto-Redact Workshop

Presented by the Inera Staff

Auto-Redact is one of the most powerful editorial tools in the eXtyles feature set, and over the years it has been expanded to include functionality such as the insertion of Word comments to annotate found text. This course will teach attendees to write some simple and complex Auto-Redact rules and to learn more about advanced Auto-Redact options. The session will include material covered in the eXtyles Administrator Training course, but both customers who have received Admin Training and those who have not are encouraged to attend. By the end of the course, attendees will be able to create and test new Auto-Redact rules, and we look forward to lively discussions of ideas for new rules and new applications of Auto-Redact (there may be prizes involved!).

The eXtyles Advanced Auto-Redact Workshop is a hands-on course. Attendees should plan to bring laptops with the following programs installed:

  • eXtyles
  • An XML text editor

We recommend the free program Notepad++ (available at Other text editors that are used by eXtyles administrators include:

  • Oxygen (
  • XMLSpy (
  • TextPad (

In addition, Windows Administrator privileges with full read/write permissions over the eXtyles directory in Program Files or Program Files (x86) are required for the Advanced Auto-Redact Workshop, because we will be editing files in the directory Program Files\eXtyles or Program Files (x86)\eXtyles and its subdirectories. Please arrange these privileges ahead of time with your IT department to avoid file permission problems on the day of the course.
