Output Factory Server for InDesign Update Adds Layer-Related File Name Tokens
Zevrix Solutions announces Output Factory Server 2.2.10, an update to output automation solution for Adobe InDesign. The software automates InDesign production workflow by processing files from hot folders. Output Factory Server offloads printing and exporting from InDesign to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the output process.
Version 2.2.10 improves the functionality of app’s advanced variable name engine in combination with layer versioning, a feature that allows users to export combinations of InDesign layers as single files. It now allows users to insert contents of specific text frame on the current version layer into the file name of the resulting output document. This option is especially helpful for users who need to assign distinctive unique names to their layer-specific output files in PDF, TIFF. EPUB, PNG and other formats.
“Output Factory Server is an extremely useful utility for a busy production facility or advertising agency”, writes David Creamer in Layers magazine. “The setup process is simple and users experience is very straightforward. It can save lots of time – which equates to money.”
Output Factory Server is designed to run on a dedicated Mac station where it can serve unlimited InDesign users on a network via hot folders. Users can create hot folders for different output targets such as hi-res PDF, image conversion, color printing, and so on.
