BatchOutput for PowerPoint Reduces Security Hassles on macOS Mojave

Zevrix Solutions announces BatchOutput PPT 2.2.15 for Microsoft PowerPoint, a maintenance update to its output automation solution for PowerPoint on macOS. In addition to batch printing, the software lets users carry out automated professional feature-rich PDF production directly from PowerPoint. Users can reduce PDF file size, optimize images and encrypt PDF documents. The new version reduces the hassles associated with Apple Event sandboxing, a new security measure introduced in macOS Mojave.

Toronto (ON), Canada — Zevrix Solutions announces BatchOutput PPT 2.2.14, a compatibility update to its output automation solution for Microsoft PowerPoint on macOS. The only batch processing tool for PowerPoint on the Mac market, the software helps users eliminate repetitive tasks through automation of printing and professional PDF output.

The new version eliminates the hassles associated with Apple Event sandboxing, a new security measure introduced in macOS Mojave. Under the new policy, applications can no longer interact with each other without prior user authorization. This change directly affects BatchOutput PPT which requires access to PowerPoint and other system resources to perform complex workflow automation tasks. The new update streamlines the authorization process by clearing all permissions during launch time, which eliminates workflow interruptions during file processing. BatchOutput will also reset Apple Event permissions automatically if the authorization was previously revoked by accident.

In addition to batch printing, the software lets users carry out powerful professional PDF production directly from PowerPoint eliminating the need for time consuming post-processing. BatchOutput PPT brings advanced PDF and printing options right to the user’s fingertips:

Print and export to PDF multiple PowerPoint documents.
-Split PowerPoint files into single page PDFs.
-Reduce PDF file size and optimize documents for web, print and mobile devices.
-Variable output file names.
-Encrypt and password-protect PDF from unauthorized copying, printing, and viewing.
-Change PDF color tone, brightness and other properties.

BatchOutput PPT is a part of the Zevrix BatchOutput family which also includes output automation solutions for Microsoft Word, Excel, Adobe InDesign and PDF workflows.

Pricing and Availability:
BatchOutput PPT can be purchased for US$19.95 from the Zevrix website as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. BatchOutput PPT requires macOS 10.7 – 10.41 and Microsoft PowerPoint 2008, 201, 2016 or 2019.
