Zevrix Solutions has announced the release of Output Factory 1.3.17, a feature update to its professional solution to automate printing, exporting and post-processing from Adobe InDesign. Output Factory automates and simplifies workflows of printers, prepress bureaus, ad agencies and publishing houses worldwide, and is the major upgrade of the company's widely popular plug-in BatchOutput.
The new version adds a new option to the EPUB output workflow: users now can output batches of InDesign files with a single set of EPUB export settings, in addition to exporting each file in a batch using its current EPUB settings. The new feature is especially helpful for the users who need to select a specific CSS file to be batched with every EPUB document.
With Output Factory, users have the freedom and power to output hundreds of documents or just single files with full control over batch printing, layer versioning, automatic preflighting, file delivery, and more. All they need to do is select the desired InDesign files and adjust workflow settings - and the software will do the rest automatically.
Output Factory supports printing as well as exporting to PDF, PostScript, EPS, Flash, INX, IDML, EPUB, HTML, INDD and several image formats. It offers the following key features:
- Batch processing of InDesign files
- Single page output
- Layer versioning
- Variable output file names
- Update modified links
- Output to several formats at once
Output Factory can be purchased from Zevrix website for US$169.95 (Light version $119.95), as well as from authorized resellers and Adobe Exchange. Trial is also available for download. BatchOutput users can upgrade to Output Factory for 4.97. Output Factory is available for Mac OS X 10.5-10.8 on Intel-based Macs and works with Adobe InDesign CS3-CS6.
