[prMac.com] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of Output Factory 1.1.5, a maintenance 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.
The new version allows users to export InDesign documents to various Flash formats as single files. It also addresses some reliability issues of IDML and EPUB workflows on program's launch.
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.
"When every second counts Output Factory is a life saver!" says Glen Saville of the design firm glensaville.com in UK, "I had a 20 book job to do the other day and had to get PDFs out very quickly, and it was absolutely indispensable!"
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
* Output to multiple workflows at once using actions
* 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
* History: keep track of jobs, output files and errors
