Web Growth Compensation in a PDF to PDF job. Possible? It's grayed out and unavailable to select when I go to print. Problem or by design? I really need my web growth compensation.

By design, Web Growth Compensation has not been implemented for PDF to PDF jobs in Preps, yet. What workflow (software) do you use with Preps that can not apply web growth? With this workflow, what is your output from Preps (PJTF, PS, PDF or JDF)?

Right now we use Nexus. Web growth works somewhat with it but Nexus won't make a composite proof with the files from Preps that have web growth applied. Soon we will be switching to Odystar which includes a Preps module in the workflow that is supposed to give us automated imposition. Don't quote me on it but I believe it will be using JDF output. Until we get the Preps module installed though we were trying to implement a PDF to PDF workflow becuse the output from Odystar is PDFs. The problem being WGC is disabled when you setup a PDF to PDF job.
