    Rampage to Heidelberg

    Wow ... very surprised to hear that! We're just starting up with Heidelberg system. Haven't yet pulled the plug on Rampage. I'm finding the Heidelberg interface to be awful, to say the least! Just like anything, you need to get used to it but to accomplish something it seems like you're going...

    Taking My Rampage Away

    Sad Day Sad Day Well, it's been awhile and thanks to all who tried to help but ... it's official ... they are taking my Rampage away! They're switching us to Heidelberg Prinect. I haven't received my training yet ... I'll try to keep an open mind. But for now I'm just sad.

    PDFs out of Microsoft Apps

    Re: PDFs out of Microsoft Apps Hi Linda, We have office 2004. The fonts never look or flow exactly the same as client's lasers. We do use Acrobat Professional although I don't have a PDF toolbar in Word. I'd say our biggest issue is colors. Black text rips as 4/color. Although this particular...

    PDFs out of Microsoft Apps

    We recently got a Konica digital printer which Sales is selling fast! We're suddenly receiving Word and Powerpoint files (and I fear Excel files won't be far behind)! We are totally MAC here so of course we're having issues with these files. Does anyone have a simplified set of instructions that...

    Taking My Rampage Away

    Re: Taking My Rampage Away Jeff (and everyone else who responded), All the suggestions and comments were very helpful. It seems it was enough to get the ball rolling on looking into options that might just work keeping Rampage. (yippee!!) Today we are starting some testing using Fuji's CoRes...

    Taking My Rampage Away

    Re: Taking My Rampage Away Jon, I checked out the Rampage website. That does sound like what we'd need. But I'm not clear if that's something that only pertains to JDF workflow. We do not use JDF. (Although I'm wondering if we should.) Rampage is having a webinar tomorrow that I'm hoping to sit...

    Taking My Rampage Away

    Re: Taking My Rampage Away We do use FPOs in our workflow. And our files do rip quickly. But once it gets to the plateroom the shooter seems to crunch on it when sending for plates. Maybe that machine needs updating(?) As for the calibrating, I wish I knew more because I don't have a lot of...

    Taking My Rampage Away

    I'm just a lowly prepress operator ... been using Rampage for over 10 years ... love, love, love it! Owner informed us yesterday that they are looking into something else because Rampage (1) forces you to rerip whole sigs when updating one page only so press is waiting too long for plates, and...

    Fonts appearing as Unix files

    Sometimes clients fonts will unstuff/unzip as Unix Executable Files and will not load for us. They display with an icon that looks like the console window. On, say a quark file, all I need to do is add the extension (qxp) and it opens. A long, long time ago I used to use ResEdit to fix...
