Output Factory Server Adds Hot Folder Watching Interval

Zevrix Solutions releases Output Factory Server 2.2.13, an update to output automation solution for Adobe InDesign. The software automates InDesign production workflow by processing files from hot folders. It offloads printing and exporting from InDesign to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the output process.

 

 

Version 2.2.13 introduces an option to change the hot folder watching interval in app’s preferences. The watching interval specifies the regularity Output Factory Server scans hot folders for updates and changes. Increasing the interval can help users eliminate premature processing of large files on slow networks.

 

“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.”

 

Under the Output Factory Server workflow, production artists, prepress operators and designers copy InDesign jobs to hot folders that reside on a network. It then will process the files automatically on its dedication Mac station. Users can create hot folders for different output targets such as hi-res PDF, large format printing, JPEG files and so on.

 

Key features:

  • Output InDesign files automatically from watched hot folders
  • Output to multiple formats from a single hot folder
  • Supports PDF, PostScript, print, TIFF, EPUB and other formats
  • Variable output file names
  • Automatic email notifications
  • Run custom scripts
  • Automatic preflighting
  • PDF security presets for different workflows

 

Output Factory Server can be purchased from Zevrix web site for $699.95 (USD), as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. The upgrade to version 2 is $350 for the licensed users of Output Factory Server 1.x and BatchOutput Server. Output Factory Server requires macOS 10.8-10.15 and Adobe InDesign CS5-CC 2020.

“Like many others I find the Finder rather tiring to work with, especially when remembering that even on very old DOS computers where tools that could be used more intuitively. We decided to bring this feeling back and with a dual panel file manager, where you see both source and target directory for better control. Easier to use, we included a bunch of options that are either missing or complicated in the original Finder. Adding all the special functions that our developers are missing, we ended up with a very powerful tool that is easy to use and comes with everything for office workers like me as well as for dedicated developers. When I gave it to my daughter to check it out I was sure we had the right tool for everybody.” as Christian Schaffner, GM of B-Eng, told about File Manager Pro.

 

File Manager Pro 1.0.1 is 18.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the Mac App Store in the Productivity category.

Together 3.7 Adds Touch Bar and Improves Evernote Import

Reinvented Software announces the release of Together 3.7 for Mac, which adds comprehensive support for the MacBook Pro Touch Bar and improves Evernote import. Together is for collecting, organizing and searching all kinds of files. Just about anything can be added to Together for safe keeping, tagged, previewed, collected together in different ways and found again instantly. With iCloud, Together libraries can be seamlessly shared with other Macs and iOS devices.

 

The Touch Bar in the new MacBook Pro works contextually, and Together takes full advantage of that. Across the app you can use the Touch Bar to create new items, import files and search the library. In the sidebar you can switch between Groups and Tags, add groups and folders, quickly view groups such as the Inbox and untagged items. In the item list you can switch between the list and thumbnails views, change how the list is sorted and resize the thumbnails. When editing notes and text documents, you can format the text, and when viewing any item you can tag, label, rate, share, favorite, encrypt and decrypt items with Touch ID.

 

Together’s Evernote Importer is a separate download that automates the process of moving from Evernote to Together. Evernote notes are converted to Together notes, except notes that only contain a single attachment and no text, which are saved as standalone files (e.g. an image or a PDF document), including tags, comments and dates. The new version of the Evernote Importer improves note conversion to handle things like checklists, converts web clippings to web archive files to preserve their layout, imports each notebook into a separate folder, and considerably speeds up import of large notebooks.

 

Together 3.7 for Mac costs $49.99 (USD) from Reinvented Software, is a free upgrade for all Together 3 users and requires macOS Sierra. A 15-day trial is available for download from the Reinvented Software web site. Together’s Evernote Importer is a free download that works with both the version of Together for Mac from the Reinvented Software site and the Mac App Store version. Together for iPad and iPhone is also available for $9.99 (USD) from the App Store, and requires iOS 10.

Stream, Transfer and Share Files Across Devices with StoAmigo

Compatible with multiple operating systems (iOS, Android, MacOS and Windows), StoAmigo enables users to quickly, easily and simply share, transfer and stream any file or folder between their computers and devices – but without tediously connecting cables, uploading to the insecure public cloud, or incurring storage limits and fees. Here’s a rundown of the key functions:

 

* Share: users can set individual download permissions and expiration dates – or go a step further and apply patented 2-Factor Authentication – to securely share any files or folder by sending a web link via email or social media post. What’s more, StoAmigo features a file mirror that allows authorized individuals (whether they’re using the app or not) to retrieve shared files and folders even if the source device is offline.

 

* Stream: users simply select the file they wish to stream via the app or web portal – such as music, photos, videos, movies and so on – and enjoy it on-demand. No uploading to a remote server is required, and users can also stream music directly to any Bluetooth-enabled device, or stream programming to their TV (currently StoAmigo supports Apple AirPlay and DLNA).

 

* Transfer: instead of waiting – and waiting – for files to upload to the cloud, users can rapidly transfer files and folders directly between their devices via drag-and-drop, or by including a link in an email or social media post (essentially the same approach that is used to share content as described earlier). There are no size restrictions, which is very welcome news for users who are frustrated with their email server’s limited capacity, or who don’t want to pay for a cloud storage subscription.

 

“Billions of people around the world rely on their devices and computers to stay productive and up-to-date, or just to access their favorite music, videos and so on. But accessing content from within this the multi-device ecosystem is often an exercise in frustration – and in futility as well,” commented Ben Ow, StoAmigo’s President and Chief Technology Officer. “That’s where StoAmigo is a total game-changer. It safely, securely and simply puts all files and folders at each user’s fingertips – no matter where they are, or what device they happen to have with them at the time. We’ve also designed the StoAmigo user experience to be consistent and seamless across all screens and platforms. Users can quickly stream, transfer, and share files with anyone – even if they aren’t a StoAmigo user.”

 

StoAmigo 2.1.0 is Free and available worldwide through the App Store in the Productivity category, and for Android devices from Google Play. Clients for MacOS and Windows, along with additional app information and screenshots, are available from the StoAmigo website.
