    Two bits of feedback from the team. BTW not the hardest question by a very long way. :) You can create a variable set in Switch with a dynamic variable. This variable's value would need to be of type 'Text with variables' and value (for example, but depending on your filename)...

    CSR and Prepress roles merging (a little)?

The goal being to speed up the process of getting jobs into the company, and not having to wait for prepress to give feedback. If you’re doing this, or even thinking of doing this I...

    Pantone Color Percentages...

    Oh and the way to edit this is to use remap color, that changes the alernate color space which is what you need. The other way just changes the name, and as the names are the same, nothing happens. That's why your workaround of changing to another color first works.

    Pantone Color Percentages...

    To come back to the original question. The Pantone Libraries that ship with Pantone are correct, they are official Pantone numbers. In addition with PitStop we ship with both the CMYK and Lab alternate colors that Pantone provide us, so you can choose to standardize on one. The issue you have...

    The best 'do-it-all' imposing software for Switch?

    I don't think there's an official Switch integration for Imp. It's not that it couldn't happen, just that it hasn't happened yet. Tilia and Ultimate have official Switch apps or configurators.

    The best 'do-it-all' imposing software for Switch?

    From my knowledge you have two main options Magnus. Tilia and Ultimate. They are the only two who do conventional imposition and nesting of irregular shapes. I don't have enough product knowledge to comment on your other requirements.

    PNG file displays artifacts on printer's website

    Personally I would look for another Printer who accepts PDF (like every other Printer). If they can't print a PDF/X-1a (which is an 18 year old format). Something is wrong. Edit: beaten by Dov again!
