[prMac.com] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today is thrilled to announce the release of Output Factory 1.1, an important feature update to its professional solution to automate printing, exporting and post-processing from Adobe InDesign. Output Factory is the major upgrade of the company's widely popular plug-in BatchOutput which automates and simplifies workflows of printers, prepress bureaus, design agencies and publishing houses worldwide.
Output Factory is a powerful solution to automate InDesign's output tasks, whether users need to send hundreds of documents or just a single one. Users only need to select the files to output and adjust the settings, and Output Factory will do the rest automatically. For example, the software can be left exporting hundreds of InDesign files overnight, and the completed job can be picked up next morning.
The new version introduces actions - a new powerful feature that lets users output InDesign files to multiple formats automatically by executing sequences of output workflows. For example, users can create an action to export files as hi-res PDF, lo-res PDF, PNG, and send them to a laser printer - all with just a click of a button.
Output Factory supports printing as well as exporting to PDF, PostScript, EPS, Flash, INX, IDML, EPUB and several image formats. It offers the following key features:
* Batch processing of InDesign files
* Output as single pages
* Save groups of output settings as workflows
* Update modified links automatically
* Assign complex variable output file names
* Layer versioning: output layer combinations as single files
* Preflight documents using InDesign's preflight or built-in options
In addition, Output Factory can skip files with specific errors, preflight final PDF automatically using Acrobat Pro's droplets, and send output files over internet and locally through seamless integration with Zevrix file transfer solution Deliver. The powerful history feature lets users keep track of all processed jobs, output files and preflight errors.

Output Factory can be purchased from Zevrix website for $169.95 (USD), as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. Licensed BatchOutput users can upgrade to Output Factory for $84.97 ($40 for users who purchased BatchOutput after October 1, 2011). Output Factory is available for Mac OS X 10.5-10.7 on Intel-based Macs and works with Adobe InDesign CS3-CS5.5.
