    PC or Mac - which one?

    We bought a new 2019 21.5" iMac recently to use as a server for FileMaker Pro. We needed to upgrade the RAM to 32 GB. To install RAM in a the 2019 21.5" iMac you have to remove the front glass, pull the display, remove the speaker, power supply, hard drive, video card module, and the logic...

    how to quickly re-scale PDF's in bulk

    You can create a droplet for the preflight profile and place it somewhere and then just drop the PDF's on the droplet. Not completely automated but works well.

    Remote Prepress

    We did some prepress from home back in the spring. Those if us with Macs at home and work just used the built in Mac Screen Sharing application over a VPN connection from our Firewall and it worked great. Those without Macs at home used Google Remote Desktop where you use the Google Chrome web...

    Cannot get marks placed

    If you use 'Add Marks to Trim Box' and your media box is the same size as the bleed box you will only see small tick marks in the bleed area. To see all of the marks the media box would need to be enlarged. Same thing with the other marks eal's. It creates the marks but if the media and crop box...

    Cannot get marks placed

    I think the standard EAL's supplied with Pitstop put the marks outside the media box so you need to enlarge the media and crop box to show the marks.

    Study shows face masks don’t stop infections

    Well I'll give this example and then I will exit this thread. You are crossing a street I am approaching. Now I could be worried about your safety so I slow down and let you cross. Or I could not give a damn about your safety and run you over. Why should I lose my freedom to drive however I...

    Seatbelts are required by law in most if not all states in the USA. For safety. Hard hats are required in construction and many work zones. For safety.

    Study shows face masks don’t stop infections

    Wearing a mask during a pandemic has nothing to do with freedom. It has to do with compassion for yourself and others.

    Study shows face masks don’t stop infections

    I really don't understand the crusade of people trying to get other people to not wear masks. If it prevents one droplet of spittle from an infected person getting into my lungs it is worth it. One thing is for certain, if you aren't wearing a mask and the person you happen to be talking to...

    PDF Choking APPE - Best Practice?

    Flattening or saving as PDF/x-1a or PDF 1.4 ( Acrobat 5 ) are all horrible solutions and only a very last resort. Let abc have a look at it and I'm sure he can show you ways Pitstop can help. Right tool for the right job thing.

    The Celebration

    You mean the stores scanner? We used to have those here but they have removed them all and encourage you to download their app. Open the app. Go to the scanner portion of the app and scan the code on their product. Every store has their own app. From supermarkets to department stores to home...

    The Celebration

    I was assembling a PC and the printed instructions for one part included a QR code for a YouTube instructional video and a typed URL for the same video. The typed URL went to a 404 error page. Scanning the QR code took me straight to the correct YouTube video so they do have a place. Especially...

    Yeah! What was I thinking? :)

    The Celebration

    Which is exactly what you have to do to scan a code in the supermarket for a ups code. Your exact statement was "i believe that QR codes will never catch up until it's at least as easy as scanning a code in the supermarket". One is no more of 'a labor-intensive cumbersome process' than the other.
