View Full Version : Preps - feature request

02-26-2008, 07:29 AM
I would like to see a possibility in Preps to edit a one page parameters (such as bleeds, size) without touching backing page. This would be VERY useful specially when creating impositions for covers, inserts etc. E.x if Front Cover file is prepared with spine being included as bleed of this page, then it would be enough to extend bleed for this page to have spine on plate. But now bleed of Inside Front Cover is also being extended. And our bindery complain about it as they DO NOT want to have an image on the back of spine because glue does not stick to the paper and it cause Magazine to fall apart. Now things like this can be "workedarround" either with independent page, but this is not friendly, or redo page files.
As far as I checked - other imposition soft have it.
Same with option in preferences to set bleed for odd and even pages separately.

How about the ability to tell individual pages (double trucks) not to be included when shoving in pages.

Dup the sig, highlight the pages and click on "Additional Settings." Under the Shingling (Creep) header, select "Custom" and enter "0." In your run list, select this sig for the double truck and it will not creep.

This is how we have always done it, I posted this on prepress forums a while back (http://www.prepressforums.com/forum/kodak-creo-systems/8897-preps-creep.html#post72464)
but on some jobs we end up with way to many templates.

It would be just so much easier if there was a way to tell the page nut to be shoved in when imposing.

when we're talking about features, i would like to see one simple thing to code: recent opened files.
