    What would you offer?

    Re: What would you offer? It sounds like this is a person who has been taken advantage of by his employer. Why does a good employee have to ask for a raise? Good companies recognize and reward good employees. I would give him enough of a raise to make up for the 5 years of neglect.

    Who/what prints iPhoto books?

    Re: Who/what prints iPhoto books? One of their suppliers uses both iGen3 and Indigo presses. More I probably cannot say due to NDA.

    Thick L's and i's in pdfs.

    Re: Thick L's and i's in pdfs. It's the basic physics of output vs. screen resolution. A screen simply cannot display all the "dots" in the file, so elements will appear thinner or thicker at various screen resolutions. Looking at a high-resolution file on screen is simply not an accurate...

    Online PDF preflight solutions

    Re: Online PDF preflight solutions The original thread asked for "online" preflight tools. Acrobat has never been licensed for Server use, and their server tools are confusing, expensive, and seem to frequently change names and pricing models.

    Numbering software

    Re: Numbering software I mean, if the jobs you are sending to the printer are PostScript language files, then you can add a small bit of PostScript code to each file. That PostScript code would modify the rest of the file slightly, so that each page would be numbered.

    Numbering software

    Re: Numbering software Any VDP software could do this... PrintShop Mail (I work for them) is often used for numbering and personalization, though it can do a lot more. If you have a PostScript workflow for these documents, a simple little PostScript header on the top of each job could do...

    Online PDF preflight solutions

    Re: Online PDF preflight solutions I thought the FlightCheck "online" link was spot on. Maybe I misread what the tool really does, but it sure seemed at first glance to be a "skinnable" web-based preflight tool. I've used [PDF Tools AG|http://www.pdf-tools.com/] in the past to build my own...

    PostScript verses PDF

    Re: PostScript verses PDF MARS is PDF... it's an XML storage system for PDF. It doesn't add or subtract any functionality to the PDF per se, it's merely another way of storing a PDF on disk. What it WILL do is greatly expand, I believe, the software tools available for creating and editing PDF...

    PostScript verses PDF

    Re: PostScript verses PDF Alan, You're right. Driver-produced PostScript is generally bloated and full of unused procsets. VDP applications though all do generic or vendor-specific forms caching. Generally, when I talk PostScript I mean custom-written PostScript. It's so convenient just to...

    Direct Smile

    Re: Direct Smile I've seen and worked with it a bit, since Printshop Mail now has a DirectSmile plugin. I would agree: powerful, a bit complex.

    PostScript verses PDF

    Re: PostScript verses PDF Alan, PostScript doesn't need to repeat any data at all. It's all in the way it's written. What I mean by "share in the computational workload"... consider a web-to-print application that generates business cards. There is a lot of work to do in DHTML, AJAX, SQL...

    PostScript verses PDF

    Re: PostScript verses PDF Dov, It's true. PostScript is dynamic, and can alter it's behavior on the fly, which makes it perfect for VDP. Your criticism is that it's hard to troubleshoot. Granted. But PDF has JavaScripts, which alter content on the fly. External Streams. All very useful. But...

    standards and technologies in variable data publishing

    Re: standards and technologies in variable data publishing I've always wanted to visit Brazil. What area? Here's our scheme then: become a customer and request me to come train you! I don't think there is any policy against me mentioning who I work for and what software we write. I just wanted...

    Apple screwed you: So now what?

    Re: Apple screwed you: So now what? I had a "bag phone". A big portable phone like that, with cables and gear to use it as a modem. All so I could sysop CompuServe's LitForum and play trivia games on their "CB" chatroom from the road.

    standards and technologies in variable data publishing

    Re: standards and technologies in variable data publishing That was perfectly clear, no problem! With VI Toolbox, then, each of your database print files will be added as "Variable PostScript". Then, you can have a master page for static elements, such as logos, page headers and footers. You...
