Output Factory Server for InDesign Streamlines File Naming Workflow

Zevrix Solutions announces Output Factory Server 2.1.16, a feature update to company’s output automation solution for Adobe InDesign. The app automates printing and exporting from InDesign by processing files from hot folders. Output Factory offers layer versioning, preflighting, email notifications and more. With the new version, intermediate temporary names are not assigned to the output files anymore, which helps users streamline multiple workflows integration and eliminate system errors.

Toronto (ON), Canada — Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of Output Factory Server 2.1.16 a feature update to company’s output automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Output Factory Server automates InDesign production workflow by processing files from watched hot folders. The app offloads printing and exporting from InDesign to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the output process.

The new version abandons the approach in which output files were exported from InDesign with intermediate temporary names before being renamed to their final user-defined variable names. The exported files are now being created directly under their final names. This improvement helps users streamline their complex automation workflows where files created by Output Factory Server are being automatically picked up by other workflow components. The change also helps eliminate random system errors that could occur when renaming temporary files.

“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 and can serve unlimited users via watched hot folders on a network. Users can create hot folders for different output targets such as hi-res PDF, color printing, EPUB files and so on. 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.

LinkOptimizer for InDesign Fixes Issues with Umlauts in Image Names

Zevrix Solutions announces LinkOptimizer 5.2.17, a maintenance update to company’s workflow automation tool for Adobe InDesign. LinkOptimizer lets users automatically scale and crop images to their InDesign dimensions at specified target resolution, convert image formats and colors, embed profiles and more. The new version fixes an error caused by processing of images with umlauts and other accented characters in their names, which could affect workflows in German and other European languages.

Toronto (ON), Canada — Zevrix Solutions today announces LinkOptimizer 5.2.17, a maintenance update to its image processing automation solution for Adobe InDesign. LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks and helps users reduce the size of InDesign links, save prepress costs, and easily repurpose InDesign documents for web and mobile devices.

The new version fixes an error that prevented LinkOptimizer from properly processing images with umlauts and other accented characters in their names. This update will help simplify workflows of users who work with German, French and other European languages by eliminating the need to replace special characters in image names in order to optimize their InDesign jobs.

“Today LinkOptimizer batched a huge book project and another magazine project in minutes vs. hours. Now I can take the afternoon off and drink beer,” says Brian Donahue, owner of Bedesign studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota. “Thanks for freeing up my afternoon, rather than doing production work.”

LinkOptimizer works automatically with Photoshop to eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links, convert image formats, and perform essential image adjustments. For example, with just a click of a button users can:

Optimize batches of InDesign files and books
-Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
-Convert RGB images to specific CMYK profile
-Change their resolution to 300 dpi
-Resave JPEGs as TIFF
-Run a Photoshop action on each image.

As a result users can save gigabytes of disk space and countless hours of optimizing images manually, accelerate document output, reduce job turnaround and cut costs through faster processing.

Pricing and Availability:
LinkOptimizer can be purchased from Zevrix website for US$259.95 (Lite version: $179.95) as well as from Adobe Exchange and authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. The update is free for LinkOptimizer 5.x users and $130 to upgrade from previous versions. LinkOptimizer requires macOS 10.7-10.14 and Adobe InDesign / Photoshop CS5-CC 2019.
