    Really old software for Fiery Command Workstation

    Hi jwheeler; The devices involved in this fiasco are all set up to run 3.1.0.17. I had already been to the EFI link you provided only to find out that the earliest versions they offer is 5.8. Thanks anyway, _mjnc

    Linking Illustrator Text Boxes in a .pdf

    So I figured out a workaround; I was able to take text fields that Acrobat did see and option-drag-copy new fields. Then had to rename them in the list of fields, then correct the order of the links. Time consuming; there’s got to be a better way! Thanks. Peace to the PrintPlanet! _mjnc

    Linking Illustrator Text Boxes in a .pdf

    Hi PrintPlanet; I have created an Illustrator file that has text fields linked and ready to go. I save the file as a .pdf then when I open it in Acrobat to allow the text fields access, it does not see all of the text boxes. Any ideas how to get them all to show up? Thanks in advance. _mjnc

    Linking Illustrator Text boxes in a .pdf

    Hi; When you open the .pdf in Acrobat, use the “Prepare Form” tool. It will give you the option to edit the job and when you do that, your text fields should show up. This also generates a list of all the text fields that it sees. You can then drag and drop the order in that list and it will...

    Linking Illustrator Text boxes in a .pdf

    Hi Print Planet; I have a form that I created in Illustrator. I placed text boxes and linked them in Illustrator. Then I opened the .pdf in Acrobat and it sees the text boxes, and I can tab from one to the next, but they’re not going in the right order. How can I change the order of the text...

    Color Libraries in creative cloud

    Hi CKirk; I think I may have an answer... We had this issue: We received a .pdf file from a client. I opened it up and they had spec’d cmyk values for colors such as “Green” and “Red”, etc. But they were not spot colors in their file. My boss opened the same file on his computer - and his cmyk...

    Plate Output

    Hey Alibryan; Although there are “lots of printers” in our area, LA would be fine. Is there someone you recommend? Google has been absolutely no help on this, anywhere in the country. Please let me know. Thanks. _mjnc

    Plate Output

    Hey PrintPlanet Folk! We are in the San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California, and the company that used to output plates for us has closed. Does anyone know of a “Service Bureau” type place around here that will output plates from an electronic file? Our largest plate size is about 29" x...

    Adobe, Pantone and their &%(#& LaB values!

    Hey PrintPlanet Folk; I thought that a while ago, someone at Adobe realized that Coated and Uncoated were simply a function of substrate, and NOT ink. Which absolutely makes sense! It seemed that for a while, regardless of what it showed on screen, when you spec’d pms 321 in an Adobe file...

    PC partition on a Mac

    Hi! From what I understand, Parallels & Virtual Box do require a partition of their own on your Mac. With BootCamp, every time you want to switch from one OS to the other, you have to reboot your machine. With Parallels & Virtual Box, you don’t have to reboot. And yes, CrossOver is Wine...

    PC partition on a Mac

    Hi Wonderings; No I have not tried “Coherence Mode”. The thing is... Frankly, Parallels costs money. Virtual Box is free, but I read it’s not as great and it does so much more that what he needs, which could be dangerous. While reading about those I ran across CrossOver, and the thing I like...

    PC partition on a Mac

    Hi again, Folks! Parallels is doing the job just fine, but I have been “encouraged” to continue seeking other options. Anyone out there running CrossOver? What about Virtual Box? If you hate it, what do you hate? If you love it, what do you love? Thanks!! _mjnc :cool:
