To chain selected targets to new jobs


Select the targets whose outputs you want to chain to new jobs.


Do one of the following:

• Choose Jobs > New Job With Target Output.

• Control-click one of the targets and choose New Job With Target Output from the

shortcut menu.

New jobs are added to the batch with the chain thumbnail and the name of the output
file of the targets they are chained to.

The chained job’s source
name is the output
filename of the target it
is chained to.

The chained job’s
thumbnail is this chain
link logo.

You can chain multiple jobs if needed. See

for an example
