    Color Libraries in creative cloud

    Hi CKirk; I think I may have an answer... We had this issue: We received a .pdf file from a client. I opened it up and they had spec’d cmyk values for colors such as “Green” and “Red”, etc. But they were not spot colors in their file. My boss opened the same file on his computer - and his cmyk...

    Plate Output

    Hey Alibryan; Although there are “lots of printers” in our area, LA would be fine. Is there someone you recommend? Google has been absolutely no help on this, anywhere in the country. Please let me know. Thanks. _mjnc

    Plate Output

    Hey PrintPlanet Folk! We are in the San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California, and the company that used to output plates for us has closed. Does anyone know of a “Service Bureau” type place around here that will output plates from an electronic file? Our largest plate size is about 29" x...

    Adobe, Pantone and their &%(#& LaB values!

    Hey PrintPlanet Folk; I thought that a while ago, someone at Adobe realized that Coated and Uncoated were simply a function of substrate, and NOT ink. Which absolutely makes sense! It seemed that for a while, regardless of what it showed on screen, when you spec’d pms 321 in an Adobe file...

    PC partition on a Mac

    Hi! From what I understand, Parallels & Virtual Box do require a partition of their own on your Mac. With BootCamp, every time you want to switch from one OS to the other, you have to reboot your machine. With Parallels & Virtual Box, you don’t have to reboot. And yes, CrossOver is Wine...

    PC partition on a Mac

    Hi Wonderings; No I have not tried “Coherence Mode”. The thing is... Frankly, Parallels costs money. Virtual Box is free, but I read it’s not as great and it does so much more that what he needs, which could be dangerous. While reading about those I ran across CrossOver, and the thing I like...

    PC partition on a Mac

    Hi again, Folks! Parallels is doing the job just fine, but I have been “encouraged” to continue seeking other options. Anyone out there running CrossOver? What about Virtual Box? If you hate it, what do you hate? If you love it, what do you love? Thanks!! _mjnc :cool:

    PC partition on a Mac

    Hi PrintPlanet folk; I work on a late 2015 iMac. My boss wants to load a PC networking application on it. He knows about Mac Terminal but wants ViaDuct too. I understand you can use BootCamp to create a PC partition and load Windows. You can also use other software and run the partition...

    Office Suite Version Numbers

    You know, since I’m here; If anyone wants to review their experiences (positive or negative) about either of the Office suites, I would love to hear it. We’re actually trying to discern which version works best with El Capitan. There’s a ton of negative review out there, except of course when...

    Office Suite Version Numbers

    Hey PrintPlanet folk; We’re doing some research about MicroSoft Office for Mac. There are 2 suites we have questions about; v2011 and 2016. What I need are each application’s own version number, (Outlook, Word, and Excel) hopefully up to the latest update. For example, I have Adobe Suite CS5...

    Dual Boot on El Capitan imac?

    Can I share the screen on the new (solid state) imac with another drive? That’s pretty much what I’m after. We’d still need to keep the MacPro tower, but that’s ok if I can get at it from the imac. In fact, I use an extra monitor and we were talking about just switching it off to the MacPro when...

    Dual Boot on El Capitan imac?

    I am currently running an Intel Xeon–based MacPro1,1. Do you have any idea what the earliest OS you can do that dual boot/target disk with is?

    Dual Boot on El Capitan imac?

    Hey! Is it just that 10.6.8 is too old and perhaps you could do it with say 10.7 or 10.8? I will read up on Parallels - thanks for the tip. We really just want to be able to use our 10.6.8 applications without having to upgrade them as they are being phased out of the workflow. Thanks guys. _mjnc

    Dual Boot on El Capitan imac?

    Hey PrintPlanet Folk; I am getting a new imac which runs El Capitan (OS 10.11). My current MacPro runs Snow Leopard (OS 10.6.8). I need to be able to “dual boot” on the new imac, so I can access the 10.6.8. There is a TON of info out there about adding El Capitan on a separate drive or...
