Zevrix Updates Output Factory for InDesign: Improves Variable File Names
October 24, 2012 in Publishing
[prMac.com] Toronto, Canada - Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of Output Factory 1.3.8, a maintenance update to its professional solution to automate printing, exporting and post-processing from Adobe InDesign. Output Factory automates and simplifies workflows of printers, prepress providers, ad agencies and publishing houses worldwide, and is the major upgrade of the company's widely popular plug-in BatchOutput.
The new version improves one of the software's most powerful features - variable output file name composition. Users now can apply the script label variable to text frames on InDesign's master pages instead of labeling frames on individual pages of InDesign document. The script label variable allows users to insert text from specific text frames into final output file name when exporting InDesign documents to PDF, EPS, HTML and other formats.
"Output Factory has been the single biggest time-saver I've encountered in ten years of print production," says Mike Agate, Head of Contents Production of Which?, Europe's largest consumer rights organization. "Easily saves hours a week, producing bullet-proof PDF files, over and over... With the reduction in head count and efficiency savings, it must have paid for itself 500 times over."
Output Factory supports printing as well as exporting to PDF, PostScript, EPS, Flash, INX, IDML, EPUB, HTML and several image formats.
It offers the following key features:
* Batch printing and exporting of InDesign files
* Export as single pages
* Output to several formats at once
* Update modified links automatically
* Variable output file names
* Layer versioning
* Preflight InDesign and final PDF files
* Support for InDesign books and booklet imposition
