Zevrix Solutions (http://www.zevrix.com) has announced BatchOutput
3.5.4, a maintenance update to its professional solution to automate
printing and exporting to various formats from Adobe InDesign. The
new update introduces compatibility with Mac OS X 10.6 (“Snow
Leopard”) and addresses some Flash export related issues.
BatchOutput automates InDesign output workflow of printers, ad
agencies, service providers and publishing houses. With the software,
users can select the files to output and adjust the settings, instead
of opening and printing each document manually. For example,
BatchOutput can be left to output hundreds of InDesign files
overnight, and the completed job can be picked up next morning.
BatchOutput also allows users to output InDesign documents as single
pages, update links automatically, and output files invisibly for the
user. The software automatically composes complex variable file
names. Because BatchOutput can run in the background, it allows users
to keep working with other programs during processing.
BatchOutput is also available in a server version which offloads
printing and exporting to PDF and PostScript to a central system
leaving operator workstations free from the InDesign output process.
BatchOutput 3.5.4 can be purchased from the Zevrix Solutions web site
for US$119.95. A demo is available for download. An upgrade to
BatchOutput 3.5.4 is free for licensed users of version 3.x, and
$47.98 for the users of earlier versions. BatchOutput 3.5.4 is
available for Mac OS X 10.4.2 and higher, is Universal Binary, and
works with Adobe InDesign CS-CS4.
