Key Features

  • Combining multiple output steps and executing them simultaneously:
    create job sets that contain several output steps and combine different types of printout or export to be launched as one output step
  • Target different output channels:
    
drive different destination printers in in your network or export to several file formats from a single job set
  • Export to different file formats automatically:
    export InDesign files to JPEG, PDF, interactive PDF, EPS, PostScript, INX, SWF, IDML, Flash or InDesign Packages
  • Processing layers individually or in combinations:
    
combine layers flexibly and output them as variants, e.g. for multilingual files or regional versions
