Batch processing
Output multiple InDesign documents in the background while keeping working with other programs. Or let Output Factory work while you're on a lunch break. Or leave it working overnight to output hundreds of files - and the job will be done when you return in the morning. Output Factory: TIFF export from InDesign (screenshot)

Powerful output options

Export InDesign documents as single pages. Update links automatically. Output files invisibly, accelerating the output dramatically. These are only a few of available options to streamline and simplify your everyday production workflow.

All the formats you need
Output Factory supports printing and exporting to PDF, PostScript, EPS, Flash, IDML, HTML, EPUB, INDD and several image formats.
[Output Factory Light supports Print, PDF and PostScript only]
InDesign formats
Save groups of Output Factory settings as workflows. For example, create workflows for hi-res and lo-res PDF output, laser printing, CMYK TIFF with FTP delivery etc. Export and import workflows to share them across workgroups.
Output to several formats at once
Create sequences of workflows to output InDesign files to multiple formats at once. For example, create an action to export files as hi-res PDF, lo-res PDF, PNG, and send them to a laser printer - all with just a click of a button. Output Factory for InDesign: workflow sequences (screenshot)
Variable file names
Output Factory offers unmatched abilities to create variable output file names. Compose file names interactively using powerful tokens with unlimited name parts. You can even insert dynamic content from your documents using the script label variable. Output Factory for InDesign: variable file names (screenshot)
Layer versioning
Output InDesign layers and their combinations as separate files automatically - an indispensable feature for multilingual documents publishing and other projects with layered contents. Output Factory for InDesign: layer versioning (screenshot)
Preflight InDesign files
With Output Factory, output errors are a thing of the past. Thoroughly check files using InDesign's built-in preflight or Output Factory's own options, and define conditions for skipping files. Errors will be stored in the History with their detailed description. Output Factory for InDesign: preflight options (screenshot)
PDF preflight
Output Factory can also automatically check final PDFs using Acrobat Pro's preflight droplets, increasing your confidence in the final output even further.
File delivery
Need to send output files to FTP, Amazon S3, by email or locally? Output Factory can do that, too! Seamless integration with Zevrix products Deliver and Deliver Express lets you send files over the Internet and locally with email notifications, file compression, encryption and much more.

You can rely on Output Factory to track InDesign files you sent to output, any errors and warnings that occurred, as well as the output files created. Output Factory for InDesign: history (screenshot)


With Output Factory Server, you can create a hot folder for each workflow and just drop InDesign jobs there to process files automatically.
Output Factory Server is intended to run on a dedicated station and serve unlimited users on a network.
In addition to all features of Output Factory, the server version offers email notifications, metadata-based variables and other server-specific features.
