    What are the benefits, now, of using either ArtPro+ or PACKZ? I've been working with Esko products for many years, beginning with Artwork-Systems in 2000. At that time we were using their ArtPro software and their RIP. I loved working with ArtPro. In 2011 I began working with another employer...

    Anyone here use ArtPro?

    the placement is dependent on the location of the object being copied (type) in relation to the ruler, on that specific doc. so when you copy into new doc, wherever the ruler is on this new doc, the placement will follow suit. i would suggest before you copy the object, on this doc, align your...

    What do you think of the new "Adobe Cloud?"

    hi, depending on what type of RIP you are using, you could create a workflow and add a "dot gain" curve (10-25% etc) or add a curve to a workflow you already have. to verify, place a grayscale chart on the plate that you can read with a plate densitometer. or create one yourself. boxes of...
