Toronto (ON), Canada — Zevrix Solutions announces the release of BatchOutput PDF 2.2.37, a feature update to the company’s PDF printing automation solution for Mac. The only consumer-oriented product for automatic PDF printing on the Mac market, the software allows users to process PDF files from watched hot folders.

The new version restores the ability to auto rotate document pages in accordance with their orientation in PDF file regardless of the page orientation selected in the output preset. This option is currently only applies to PDF files where all pages have the same orientation. The ability to auto rotate pages in documents with a mix of portrait and landscape orientations is in works and planned to be added soon. The issue with page auto rotation was caused by a bug introduced in a recent release of macOS.

“This is one of those apps that you never knew you needed until you spend a day using it,” says Glen Saville of eponymous design firm in Hornchurch, UK. “If you handle a large number of PDFs daily this will save you time, without a doubt.”

BatchOutput PDF helps users eliminate countless repetitive tasks of opening PDF files and adjusting print settings manually by bypassing the print dialog. For example, users can create hot folders for color and black-and-white printers, specific paper sizes, duplex modes, various color profiles and other controls. The app offers the following key features:

Print PDFs automatically from watched hot folders.
-Create hot folders for different print settings.
-Detailed output history.
-Specify password for encrypted PDFs.
Save time and hassle of printing each PDF manually.

The app automates printing and exporting from InDesign by processing files from hot folders. Output Factory Server offers layer versioning, preflighting, email notifications, PDF security presets, variable names and more. The new version allows users to establish daily chain processing by using workflow’s errors folder as the hot folder of another workflow.

Toronto (ON), Canada — Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of Output Factory Server 2.1.21 a maintenance update to company’s output automation solution for Adobe InDesign. The software automates InDesign production workflow by processing files from watched hot folders. The software offloads printing and exporting from InDesign to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the output process.

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
Layer versioning
-Run custom scripts
-Variable output file names
-Automatic preflighting
-PDF security presets for different workflows

Pricing and Availability:
Output Factory Server can be purchased from Zevrix web site for US$699.95, 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 10.7-10.14 and Adobe InDesign CS5-CC 2019.

BatchOutput for PowerPoint Reduces Security Hassles on macOS Mojave

Zevrix Solutions announces BatchOutput PPT 2.2.15 for Microsoft PowerPoint, a maintenance update to its output automation solution for PowerPoint on macOS. In addition to batch printing, the software lets users carry out automated professional feature-rich PDF production directly from PowerPoint. Users can reduce PDF file size, optimize images and encrypt PDF documents. The new version reduces the hassles associated with Apple Event sandboxing, a new security measure introduced in macOS Mojave.

Toronto (ON), Canada — Zevrix Solutions announces BatchOutput PPT 2.2.14, a compatibility update to its output automation solution for Microsoft PowerPoint on macOS. The only batch processing tool for PowerPoint on the Mac market, the software helps users eliminate repetitive tasks through automation of printing and professional PDF output.

The new version eliminates the hassles associated with Apple Event sandboxing, a new security measure introduced in macOS Mojave. Under the new policy, applications can no longer interact with each other without prior user authorization. This change directly affects BatchOutput PPT which requires access to PowerPoint and other system resources to perform complex workflow automation tasks. The new update streamlines the authorization process by clearing all permissions during launch time, which eliminates workflow interruptions during file processing. BatchOutput will also reset Apple Event permissions automatically if the authorization was previously revoked by accident.

In addition to batch printing, the software lets users carry out powerful professional PDF production directly from PowerPoint eliminating the need for time consuming post-processing. BatchOutput PPT brings advanced PDF and printing options right to the user’s fingertips:

Print and export to PDF multiple PowerPoint documents.
-Split PowerPoint files into single page PDFs.
-Reduce PDF file size and optimize documents for web, print and mobile devices.
-Variable output file names.
-Encrypt and password-protect PDF from unauthorized copying, printing, and viewing.
-Change PDF color tone, brightness and other properties.

BatchOutput PPT is a part of the Zevrix BatchOutput family which also includes output automation solutions for Microsoft Word, Excel, Adobe InDesign and PDF workflows.

Pricing and Availability:
BatchOutput PPT can be purchased for US$19.95 from the Zevrix website as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. BatchOutput PPT requires macOS 10.7 – 10.41 and Microsoft PowerPoint 2008, 201, 2016 or 2019.
