Users now can select the desired InDesign files in the app’s history and add them to the current queue with just a click of a button. The update also introduces the history file counter and fixes some window behavior anomalies on macOS Sierra.

 

“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. “With the reduction in head count and efficiency savings, it must have paid for itself 500 times over.”

 

Under the Output Factory workflow users only need to select InDesign files, adjust output 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:

 

* Batch output of InDesign files
* Supports print, PDF, PostScript, EPS, TIFF, HTML and other formats
* Export as single pages
* Layer versioning: export layer combinations as single files
* Variable output file names
* Output to several formats at once
* Automatic preflight
