  • Nexus 8.6 rev2 is out!

    Anyone jump in yet?
    Looking for feedback from you Nexus Power users.
    Any advice before we update? We are newbie Nexus users.

    Thanks!

    I will be installing it Thursday evening U.S. Central time. One of my bugs has been fixed supposedly. We'll see. (Composite fonts shifting left when rastered).

    I'm guessing this won't be a separate install and it will probably replace 8.6 rev 1. I hate when they do that. I'd like to keep 8.6 rev 1 around in case I find a problem with rev 2. I'll make a copy first to be safe.

      We are up and running with it. Installed yesterday and all seems fine.

      They've finally fixed the stitcher and memory errors with nexus processor. We had been on 8.4 until this as 8.5 never got fixed for us.

        Had problems with the "Rasterise Tiffs for RTL" It seems to put "Cyan" after all the sep names and it won't preview from the manager. (Volume not Mounted) Or copy from the manager (can't find the seps)

            We had a trainer in last week who did a build for us to install.
            All our legends contain MS comic sans and it caused a error in Nexus.
            He eventually had it pulled from the download center. Hopefully it won't take long to fix.
            Just be aware if you get font probs

              We found a bug with the 'modify separations' activity. Esko found that the same error happens in ArtPro as well (remap colour option) so the error has been passed onto 'Global Support'.

                I think the bigger problem here is using MS Comic Sans. :-/

                  Unfortunately the legend was here long before me.

                      The RTL thingy is a known issue, hope it's fixed soon.
                      Not aware of any specific font issues but I would recommend to get rid of MS Comic Sans, I mean, common ;-)

                          we've been using it for about a month now. Only issue we have is a problem with export PDF / Print to file activity failing for no reason on files. After a restart of the NexusProcessor you have a fair chance the file will be processed...

                            By the way: does anyone know where the main database is stored. When we installed Nexus 8.6 (coming from 8.4), I noticed the time it took to start was kinda long. Turns out the scan of the database takes about 2 minutes. For a clean install that seemed long to me? Is this correct or just my thinking???

                              Here's one AWS denies exist. Create a table in IDCS3 with cell stroke defined as black, but the cell fill with 100% black and 20% cyan. Set some type in the cell an set it to white. Run it through a raster/trap workflow and the keep-away (cutback) trap is funky, all pure vertical edges don't get the keep-way trap. Now change the cell stroke to match the fill and now it traps correctly. WTF!!!

                              I'm using 8.6r1 and will upgrade in a heart beat if it resolves this issue which I face almost daily. You can't just go tell the third largest wireless telecom company that they need to have their agencies do things better, so I (and various printers) suffer through.

                              Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated!
