The new update improves exporting InDesign documents as single spreads and addresses an issue which could occur under certain configurations. It also improves the appearance of log entries in file history.
"BatchOutput Server is an extremely useful utility for a busy production facility or advertising agency", writes David Creamer in Layers magazine, "It can save lots of time - which equates to money."
BatchOutput Server runs on a standalone Macintosh system that has InDesign installed. Under BatchOutput Server workflow, production artists and prepress operators simply submit InDesign files to hotfolders that reside on the network. BatchOutput Server automatically outputs the files from its dedicated station using hot folder settings, and will auto-activate document fonts as well. Operator workstations will never again be tied up by the output process. The workflow also ensures that correct output settings will be always used.
BatchOutput Server offers the following major features and benefits:
-Process InDesign files and books from hotfolders
-Export files as single pages
-Update modified links automatically
-Variable output file names
-Auto-activate document fonts
-Automatic e-mail notifications of process stages and errors
-Automatic error handling
-Detailed processing logs and visual file tracking
-Easy to install and set up
BatchOutput is also available in a single user version to automate printing and exporting from InDesign on individual stations.
