BatchOutput 2.5 released
Zevrix Solutions today released BatchOutput 2.5 (different product shown), an Adobe In-Design plug-in that automatically prints and exports single or multiple InDesign documents to PDF and PostScript formats. BatchOutput allows users to produce multiple InDesign documents as single pages with variable names, and the update adds tighter integration with InDesign CS3 for easier control when adding files directly from the Finder. Users can change jobs names in the printer queue, suppress font and link warnings, and hide document windows during processing. The variable name feature allows users to assign various attributes, such as page number and the date to compose output file names automatically. BatchOutput 2.5 is controllable as a separate application but remains an InDesign plug-in, and users can launch the plug-in directly from the InDesign CS3 menus. BatchOutput 2.5 is priced at $80, and requires Mac OS X 10.4.2 or later with Adobe InDesign CS or newer.
