    Default How do I view .ppf files?

    I'm in the unique position of trying to generate PPF files for a press I don't have. Things are going smoothly, but I'm curious as to if there is a way for me to view the preview in the PPF files I'm making. Any help would be appreciated.

    It was over on the PPF boards, can't recall which section though. I wonder if you can install InkPro without a license.

    I'm not sure what you're going to be able to "preview" exactly however.

    Thanks for your help. Really what I was looking for was a way to view the preview my system was generating for the PPF.

    PPF files are generally generated by an MIS, an imposition or a CIP3 solution. This file is used to setup your ink parameters on a CIP3 / CIP4 console.

    We offer a solution that reads PPF files and can also generate a report to setup ink keys and presses.

    If you have questions, contact me via email.

    Have a look at Excourse PressPerCent Information

    We've been using it for a couple of years now. Works as advertised.
