Two Different RIPs to Trendsetter - Tue, 04/15/2014 - 2:59pm
Hi All,
Hopefully I'm using the correct forum for this question. We are currently driving a Creo Trendsetter 800 II Quantum directly with Kodak Prinergy v4. We are looking at possibly upgrading to a different RIP system that would write 1-Bit tiffs and requires a Tiff catcher to feed the Trendsetter. Our Prinergy system is a 1-box solution, with Print Console residing on the Prinergy server. Ideally, we would like to have both RIPs running simultaneously, at least during the transitional period, so we would have the option of plating legacy jobs in Prinergy while processing and plating new jobs with the new RIP. Can this be done? Can we still print directly from Prinergy AND have the Trendsetter set up to accept TIFF downloads? Or, will we have to write 1-Bit tiffs from both systems? Thanks.

How do you handle a job that will perfect bind but your customer provided a file in readers spreads?

If and when breaking the file into single pages, do you shift page content away from the binding side trim to improve the appearance of crossover content? What about crossover text?

Can a certified PDF be generated from a layout that has Tiffs using LZW compression? - Tue, 04/15/2014 - 1:33pm
I have seen PDF pages go to press a thousand times from that were created in Indesign. The images in the layouts were tiffs that used LZW compression. Why am i suddenly being told by a new co-worker that PDF/x does not allow for LZW compression in the tiff files. What am I missing here, Im confused.

caveat, If the PDF being generated from Indesign is set to be PDF/x ## compliant, is the LZW compression in the placed tiffs removed, or does it stay intact until the pdf hits the RIP?

All and any answers are appreciated. Thanks

Another Command Workstation Question - Tue, 04/15/2014 - 9:23am
I want to setup a hot folder in Command Workstation that will impose 21-up (1-up each of 21) business cards. Can the hot folder be configured to wait until it receives 21 pages before it continues processing? A bonus would be if it could continue processing after so much time has passed even if it hasn't received 21 pages.

Command Workstation Glitch - Tue, 04/15/2014 - 8:24am
since I'm not getting any help from EFI...I'll try here...

we have the new CWS 5.5 installed on all 3 of our macs to drive or Xerox 700i, but on one of them we have a weird issue.

When we open a job that it is in the Print Que to edit, and go into the color manager (basic or expert doesn't matter) we are unable to change any of the settings. We can click on the drop downs, and "select" one of the items, but when we do, it doesn't change anything. Outside of the color manager, we can change any of the settings without a problem. And if we go to the main color settings, we can change the master default settings no problem.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Both manually and using the Uninstaller app. I have also tried going through the entire system removing everything EFI/Fiery/Xerox, downloaded all new installs, and installed fresh, nothing helps. I have gone through all the settings I can find, thinking maybe something was checked/unchecked, but nothing.

There are no errors, nothing is grayed out, nothing freezes. it just does nothing.
Any help would be much appreciated, my poor tech on that computer is soo frustrated!

Thank you!
