Zengobi Updates Curio With File Exporting

Zengobi, Inc. has released an update for Curio, bringing it to version 1.2. Curio is a utility designed as a brainstorming organizer. The update features exporting via various file types including PDF and HTML, and jump markers for inner-project linking. According to Zengobi, Inc:

Zengobi, Inc. announced today a new 1.2 release of Curio with dozens of new features and fixes.

Curiois freeform sketchbook environment allows you to collect images, bookmarks, documents, movies, and text clippings; take notes; and sketch with pressure-sensitive pens. It includes an integrated dossier feature with creative brief support that will help you communicate more effectively with your clients, and a feature called Sleuth to make scouring the web for inspiration easier.

One of the most requested features is the ability to export Curio projects in various formats. You can now export all or selected idea spaces either as a PDF document, a series of TIFF, PNG, or JPG images, or an HTML project. The exported HTML project is compatible with Safari on the Mac and IE on Windows, and looks just like the real Curio with the Organizer pane and idea space thumbnails on the left, and the currently selected idea space displayed on the right. In addition, in the HTML export the displayed assets are also exported and the idea space is "live" meaning the user can click on documents, movies, songs and the associated document is displayed or downloaded.

This version also introduces another frequently requested feature: inner-project hyperlinking called jump markers. When double-clicked these jump markers will transport the user to a specified figure even if on another idea space. These target figures can be moved anywhere in the project and the jump marker will track them down.

You can find more information about the Curio update at the Zengobi, Inc Web site. Curio 1.2 is free for registered users, while the full version is available for US$99.00.
