Toronto (ON), Canada — Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of Output Factory 2.2.3, a maintenance update to company’s output automation plug-in for Adobe InDesign (http://www.zevrix.com/OutputFactory.php). Awarded 5 of 5 stars by InDesign Magazine, Output Factory automates and simplifies workflows of printers, ad agencies, and publishing houses worldwide by helping eliminate repetitive tasks through batch processing with time-saving output options.

The new version fixes a bug in an advanced feature that allows users to insert text from specific InDesign frames into the names of output subfolders. Output Factory can automatically create subfolder structure for exported files making it easier for the users to locate and manage their output assets. Among other options, the app can create a separate subfolder for output files of each InDesign document. With the new update, customers can leverage the InDesign script label feature to name the subfolders with text snippets from the source InDesign document.

“Using Output Factory is straightforward. You determine your settings and sit back while Output Factory does all the heavy lifting,” writes Jamie McKee in a 5-star review in InDesign Magazine. “The time savings are huge.”
