Re: Come and Go Collation Marks

Thanks for the reply. I get the same result if I change it to B. Still not showing up on the template. Are your come and go jobs using a template or a folding pattern?

Come and Go Collation Marks

Preps v8.0.2 and I have created a new Come and Go template, not using a fold pattern because I can't get a fold pattern to place the pages where they need to be. Then I created a new collation mark...

Re: JDF Templates and False Lap

What do you consider wide web saddle? We have web presses and run a lot of saddle stitch books with a lap. But we use templates. Are you saying you can't add a lap using folding patterns?

I use jstotz method a lot too. That is probably the best way to go.

As far as the error messages go I have never seen that particular message so I can't help much with that. It could have to do...

Re: New to Preps

If it still grayed out...it could be that you don't have a license for the Prinergy Signature Selection Tool.

If I am understanding you correctly and assuming you have the signature selection tool in Prinergy....right click the imposition ===> Edit Imposition. Give the imposition/pageset a new name and send...

Re: Edit template with multiple signatures.

Yes I miss it sometimes too but it doesn't seem like Kodak is ever going to bring the old one back so you have to adapt to what you have now.

Re: Edit template with multiple signatures.

You can edit it by adding all sigs back into the job and edit the one you need to make a change to and then save back over the old name.

I edit templates often but we only keep one signature in a...

Re: Edit template with multiple signatures.

When Preps 6 was released Kodak had a script that could take your templates that contained multiple signatures and save them out so all templates contained only one signature each. I used that...

Re: 64 pg vertical shingling vs. bottling

Hmmmm...why do they think you need vertical shingling? Just curious as I have never used it. I assume there is a good reason to use it?

Re: 2- 8 page signatures

See attached template and screen grab. This template does work the way you want it to.

Re: 2- 8 page signatures

So when you 'create new imposition' from Prinergy it launches Preps and you make your imposition on the fly.

Ahhhhh....I have no experience with using folding patterns with a multi-section...

Re: 2- 8 page signatures

Are you using the signature selection tool in Prinergy to impose or imposing through preps? Also what version of Prinergy are you using?

Re: 2- 8 page signatures

You assign your pages in the pageset as 1-16 and Preps should output them as 1-8 and 9-16. The only thing I question in your template is the left sig has 1-8 at the bottom of the sheet while the...

Re: 2- 8 page signatures

Your template should work OK. In a multi-section template go by the little numbers and not the big ones. The small numbers on each side is 1 - 8 and 4 - 5 which is how they should be.

Re: 2- 8 page signatures

What you are describing is a multi-section template. Did you specify 2 sections when you made the template?

Re: Preps 7, change Page Orientation defaults?

Double click the imposition and then click the option for 'Reference Page:' and change it there.
