[prMac.com] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today is pleased to announce the release of BatchOutput 3.10, a feature update to its popular professional solution to automate printing, exporting and post-processing from Adobe InDesign. Developed originally for one of the largest ad agencies in Canada to boost productivity of its prepress department, BatchOutput automates and simplifies workflow of printers, service providers and publishing houses.
The new update adds an option to log the missing links and fonts in InDesign documents to a text file during processing which can be toggled in the preferences. Some stability and performance issues are also addressed.
BatchOutput is more than just a plug-in - it's a workflow solution that automates, streamlines and simplifies output tasks, whether it's hundreds of files or a single document. Users only need to select the files and adjust the settings, and the rest will be done automatically. For example, users can let BatchOutput work while they're on a lunch break, or leave it working overnight to output hundreds of documents - and the job will be done when they return in the morning. And the new error reporting feature lets users quickly identify files that need to be fixed, if there are any.
As Tami Stodghill wrote in X-Ray magazine, "The complete automation hooked me - BatchOutput lets you work after hours without lifting a finger."
BatchOutput supports printing as well as exporting to PDF, PostScript, EPS, Flash, INX, IDML and various image formats. It offers the following powerful key capabilities:
* Print and export hundreds of InDesign files with a single click
* Output files as single pages
* Update links automatically
* Assign complex variable file names
* Preflight final PDF automatically with Acrobat Pro droplets
* Send output files to FTP, MobileMe, WebDAV and other remote and local destinations
BatchOutput is also available in a server version which processes InDesign files automatically from hot folders.
