View Full Version : Loss of Functionality on Smart Text Marks

07-25-2006, 02:12 PM
At some point during the past year, we've lost some functionality of our smart text marks.
The smart text mark fields we use on our plates are: job name, signature, color, date, and time. All work but one: job name.
We've traditionally entered it as $[JOBNAME]. Now all we get in its place on the plate are a couple hyphens (--).
Even older jobs that I knew to work out correctly now output without the job name info.
The only change between the time it worked & didn't work may have been a Prinergy Evo upgrade.
Does anyone have any input on this situation?
Mac OS X 10.3.9
Preps 5.0
Prinergy Evo

Try using the string $[JobID] instead of job name. That happened with the EVo 3 upgrade. For some reason the Jobname stopped working.

Unfortunately $[JobID] didn't work for us. I'm trying variations of it. I also received an alert that yet another Evo update is available. I may load it & see if it doesn't fix the glitch.
