Classified Pagination

Legendary Productivity

Purposely built for Classified Pagination, this powerful application knows about house ads, straps, multi-column headings and display ad stacks. Its product design has been refined over the years to be able to lay out a typical classified section by itself with practically no operator intervention and can be set to square off pre-determined classifications.

Control of the Page

Display ads and whole classifications can be moved interactively around the page or to any page. Even individual lineage can be moved within a classification, if desired. Manual ad positioning is helped by the quickest WYSIWYG page preview in the industry.

Ads and Straps

Headers, whether simple box text or elaborate graphics, can be automatically inserted at the beginning of classifications, the top of every column or according to the selected styles. Display ad banners are handled automatically with multiple headers for each classification.

Control of Lineage

Individual line ads can even be moved out of strict sorting order in a classification to fine tune the fit of the page. The original sorting order can be restored with the click of the mouse to return the classification to the original sorting.

Automatic Reservations

Space for display and semi display ads can be reserved so that classified line ads flow around them. Reserved display ads can easily be moved into a block of lineage ads, giving maximum flexibility in page fitting.


Classified Pagination works seamlessly with Newzware Classified Advertising and is the only comprehensive classified pagination solution that can work with virtually any classified database by supporting PostScript and ASCII classified sort files. It also integrates with Pongrass Ad Layout for pre-placement of classified display ads.


Classified Pagination, developed by Pongrass Publishing, was the first system of its type designed for full color. Color elements can include banners, headers, display ads, logos and even lineage text.

Publication Size

The program is designed to handle the largest publications, with very high performance flow, reflow, preview and print functions allow sections consisting of 100s of pages to be processed in seconds on standard PC hardware. Features such as multiple automatic headers available for each classification enhance the look of your classified pages.

Long Liners

For legals and public notices, it handles the requirements of long liners and semi-displays. The system can automatically turn over long liner ads such as government tenders to give a better fit, or where such ads exceed the column depth of the publication.

PDF Support

Most Newspaper PDF workflows require the conversion of supplied ads from PDF to EPS. With the release of Version 7, Pongrass Classified Pagination handles PDF files natively. There is no need for external PDF workflow software or legacy OPI solutions.

Double Page Spreads

Version 7 now supports double page spreads with bleed. For database users, placement of bleed ads is verified against the publication template.
