Output Factory Server for InDesign Now Allows Daisy Chain Processing
Zevrix Solutions announces Output Factory Server 2.1.23, a maintenance update to company's output automation solution for Adobe InDesign. The app automates printing and exporting from InDesign by processing files from hot folders.

The new version allows users to establish daily chain processing by using one workflow's error output folder as the input hot folder of another workflow. This feature was specifically demanded by advanced users to allow for hands-free processing in complex production environments. For example, an InDesign file whose PDF output failed under a hi-res workflow now can be automatically channeled to be exported at a lower resolution. The update also improves handling of modified link updating errors, fixes Apple Events authorization issues on international systems and addresses an bug related to advanced preflighting email notifications.
"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 intended to run on a dedicated Mac station where it can serve unlimited users via watched hot folders on a network. The app offers the following key features:
-Output InDesign files automatically from hot folders
-Supports print, PDF, PostScript, TIFF, EPUB and other formats
-Output to multiple formats from a single hot folder
-Automatic email notifications
-Run custom scripts
-Variable output file names
-PDF security presets for different workflows
