PDF Bee receives major update in v4

July 19, 2011 in Publishing (E)

[prMac.com] Manheim, Pennsylvania - Chris Paveglio today is pleased to announce the release of PDF Bee 4.0. PDF Bee allows users to automatically drop InDesign files and packaged folders into a watched folder for automated output. PDF Bee outputs each page of the InDesign document as a separate PDF (either via PDF Export or Postscript and Distill), and now JPG/EPS.

Version 4 includes the ability to handle packaged files, to output a 2nd version of the PDFs using a different setting, to output the document as 1 PDF (instead of each page as a PDF), the option to output a JPG and/or EPS file of each page, to update image links, to separate the files into folders based on file types.

Feature highlights:
* Watches a hot folder for files dropped locally or over a network
* Option to process 1 file locally at a time
* Watches for InDesign documents and package folders
* Outputs 1 PDF per page of the document
* Output PDF via InDesign Export, Postscript and Distill, or only Postscript files
* Option to output a JPG and/or EPS of each page
* Automatically load fonts for each document
* Option to move files to a user specified location, such as another hot folder for other processes like Pitstop server or other Automator actions or scripts
* Option to sort files into sub folders based on the file types
* Option for reversing the file page naming (ie page number first then document name)
* Creates a log file on network volumes to monitor multiple PDF Bees
* Can use multiple PDF Bees to watch 1 folder for processing a huge number of files in parallel
* Designed by a Prepress professional
