Zevrix Solutions today is proud to announce the release of Output Factory 1.5.26, a feature update to its solution to automate printing, exporting and preflighting from Adobe InDesign. Output Factory automates and simplifies workflows of printers, prepress bureaus, ad agencies and publishing houses worldwide by offering batch processing with powerful and time-saving output options.
The new version expands the variable file name capabilities by letting users automatically insert the current workflow name into the name of exported output files. This powerful feature also includes variable tokens for page number, layer, current date, user name and other variable data. Users can also insert any text from InDesign file into the final output file name by leveraging the script label technology.
“Output Factory has been the single biggest time-saver I’ve encountered in years of print production,” says Mike Agate, Production Manager of Which?, Europe’s largest consumer rights organization. “Easily saves hours a week, producing bullet-proof documents over and over… With the reduction in head count and efficiency savings, it must have paid for itself 500 times over.”
With Output Factory users only need to select InDesign files, adjust workflow settings, and the software will do the rest automatically. Built-in preflighting ensures that no output errors will be left unnoticed. The program supports all popular output formats and offers the following key features:
* Output multiple InDesign files with a single click
* Supports print, PDF, POstScript, EPS, TIFF, HTML and other formats
* Export as single pages
* Layer versioning
* Output to several formats at once
* Variable output file names
* Automatic preflight
* Detailed output history
