Exportools Professional allows you to output multi-page InDesign or QuarkXPress
documents as single-page or multi-page files.
With more than a dozen of formats to choose from, Exportools Professional is the
only tool you need to export
pages, spreads, text and images for print, web or portable devices.
Exportools Professional 4 incorporates PDF-to-image conversion, text and picture extraction,
the ability to export open documents, layer management, a brand-new interface,
and much more.
Exportools Professional gives you these 3 possibilities to add files:
Custom File List: Drag-and-drop InDesign or QuarkXPress documents from the Finder into the
interactive file list.
Watched Folder: Have Exportools Professional periodically scan a watched folder. Newly dropped
files will be automatically added to the queue.
Open Documents: Export or print those documents currently open in InDesign or QuarkXPress.
The Output Log of Exportools Professional keeps track of all the files being
exported or printed. You can monitor in real-time which files have been
successfully or unsuccessfully processed, and get detailed info of any errors
Once the output is completed, you’ll have the option to open all or some of the exported files with any
application that you choose, or with the default application.
Use custom presets to save settings currently chosen in Exportools Professional.
For example, you can have profiles for PDF workflows, text extraction, watched
folders, etc. You can easily redefine, revert, add, rename, and remove presets.
Presets can also be saved and loaded when needed, which makes it easy to share
them within the workplace.
With Exportools Professional you can batch export InDesign or QuarkXPress
documents to any of these formats: PDF, PostScript, JPEG, TIFF, PNG, RTF,
Microsoft Word documents, HTML, Web Archive, Apple Pages* documents, or Plain
Text. Or you can also batch print documents and send them directly to a printer
The same application handles both InDesign and QuarkXPress documents, and
supports InDesign CS3-CS6, as well as QuarkXPress 8-9.
Exportools Professional allows you to define file naming templates – a sequence of up to 15 variable placeholders, such as a serial number or time
stamp, that change automatically to name each exported file. Using file naming
templates allows for easy identification of the exported files, and prevents
unwanted duplicate file names.
You can also organize the exported files that belong to each original document
by creating subfolders inside the destination folder.
For each processed document, Exportools Professional can then flag it as
Done/Failed, remove it from the list, or move it to a different folder.
You can flag processed documents as “Done/Failed and Ready for Next Output”, meaning that those files can then be exported again to a different format, for
Exportools Professional also logs in detail the documents that failed, so you
can easily locate them, open, and fix any problem or issue that caused the
output to fail.
You can extract all document text and pictures, retaining most of the formatting
and page layout order. Extracted pictures can be reduced in file size and
arranged in different ways within the text flow, in order to optimize their
appearance when viewed on web pages, word processing documents, or tablets.
As an added bonus, exporting text and pictures as Apple Pages* documents will in
turn allow you to save those documents as ePubs that can be read in iBooks.
The preflighting engine quickly and thoroughly analyzes each document for
potential problems that could lead to time and material waste. Check for:
missing fonts, text overflows, non-printing graphics, broken picture links, RGB
images, and poor image resolution.
Once a problem is found, you can select to skip the document in question, stop
outputting, or ask the user to decide. Exportools Professional automatically
logs all preflight reports for easy tracking, plus you also have the option of
saving the log to disk.
*Requires Apple Pages version 4.1 or later.
