Toronto, ON, Canada – Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of Output Factory Server 2.2.15, a maintenance update to company’s output automation solution for Adobe InDesign. The software automates InDesign production workflow for workgroups by processing files from hot folders. Output Factory Server offloads printing and exporting from InDesign to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the output process.

The new version improves the XMP Variables engine, a powerful feature that allows users to insert specific InDesign file metadata entries into the variable output file names. The update addresses a number of issues that resulted in UI malfunctions on macOS Catalina and fixes a bug that rendered the first XMP preset in the list uneditable. In a future update, Zevrix plans to extend the XMP variable abilities to the app’s email notifications by letting users send alerts to email addresses stored in InDesign metadata.

“Output Factory 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.”

Output Factory Server is designed to run on a dedicated Mac station where it can serve unlimited users on a network via watched hot folders. Users can create hot folders for different output targets such as hi-res PDF, color printing, image conversion 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
• Automatic email notifications
• Output to multiple formats from a single hot folder
Layer versioning
• Variable output file names
• Run custom scripts
• Automatic preflighting
• PDF security presets for different workflows
• Send final files to FTP and other servers
