I've been using this for a good few months and hand on heart, this product has saved me hours!

I had 30 adapts to do, simply revising a size and removing finishes for cheap reprints, being able to output all the PDFs in one go when all 30 were done enabled me to get the job done in one day!

And I use this mostly at it's most basic level, simply running out PDFs, there are so many feature, it's like Adobe have made an InDesign Extended version.

Updates are regular, the developer is one of the most responsive I have ever come across, there isn't anything left to add!

Brilliant in concept and even more brilliant in use!

I use OutputFactory to save all or some pages as PNG image from InDesign Layouts. The main reason: all files have proper names because of the flexible file naming features.

Unbelievable but true: there is no comparable possibility "out-of-the-box"! But even if Adobe might update the build-in possibilities - there is much more to compare with this software.

If you don’t want to spend the money - you might be satisfied with a script solution with simple export. http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/exchange/index.cfm?event=extensionDetail&extid=1254518&PID=4169666#

I'm assuming this is replacing BatchOutput? It's almost the same UI and it's the same icon

That's true, as stated in the product description (albeit in the very end), Output Factory is a new major version of BatchOutput.

Thanks,
