    Forum Categories Read/unRead

    I like how when you are in a Category like "The Lounge". You can see which threads you read, if they are Bold they are unread. It used to be this way in the Category listing as well but a recent update I think broke this. Am I the only one seeing this?

    Fusion Pro text frame shifting

    We have tested out Fusion Pro several times and no matter which version. We still run into the same problems. When we mark a text frame within InDesign as variable. When the PDF is exported to Fusion Pro, the text frame isn't in the same spot it was within InDesign. Does anyone have a solution...

    Forum Changes

    <begin rant <rant --Begin Rant I noticed how some of the Forum Headings are merging with others. One forum "Technology Help Desk" is sorted Oldest to Newest, while all the others are just the opposite. I still can't use the Forum Tools within a Forum, and it has been this way for months. A...

    Forum Tools not working

    Is anyone else having problems with the Forum Tools not working here? When I am in a Forum, say Lounge, and have read the topics I am interested in and not others. I would normally select the Forum Tools at the top right of the Threads and select Mark all as read, or something along those lines.

    We have 1 PolaProof 2230 Imager and 2 PolaProof Finishers for sale. The finishers work fine. The PolaProof had one of the Power Supply boards go out but everything else worked fine. This would be a good machine for spare parts.

    Control Separations when making a PDF

    This originally started out in the following thread: http://printplanet.com/forums/adobe/23608-why-i-go-ps-instead-exporting-pdf#post148548 Rather than hijack the thread, I thought I would create a new one. The Prepress Technician checks to make sure the file is built with the correct colors...

    Image printing in Black ink. Grayscale or RGB colorspace?

    I have a client who sent in an RGB image which has the color removed; ie one spot on the photograph has the same amount of RGB. The client wants this to print just using Black ink. Is this how you would provide the file? Or would you convert it to grayscale before sending to the printer?

    Screen Angles: Why are they 15, 45, 75 and 90?

    Since there can be a moire between angles 75 and 90. Would it make more sense to have the 4 colors evenly divided among the 90 degrees. ie 22.5, 45, 67.5, 90?

    Name of Web to Print

    The fundamental name of Web to Print means the only thing it does is print. This is far from reality. Web to Print encompasses email, PURL's, SMS messages, even possibly audio and Video. My thought is to call it something different. At first I was calling it Web to Whatever, which includes just...
