    Print to Nexus from Snow Leopard?

    that is quite a work around. I am in a similar situation where I have no idea how to talk to my EFI RIP server with out appletalk. Everyone else in my office has the latest macOS, while I'm still hanging on to to my 10.5.8 specifically so I can continue to print to our epson proofer.

    Re: Good scanner? Finding appropriate flatbed scanners is a challenge. We had settled on purchasing an Epson 1000XL, though we have not followed through with that purchase. Seems we don't really need a scanner as much as we thought.. Our number one criteria in choosing a flatbed scanner was...

    Chemical Watermark - Any experience?

    I need to create an official transcript paper for the company. I want to include a watermark but do not have the need for the quantity of stock it would take for a true watermark. I have heard of chemical watermarks. Can anyone provide insight on the process and the results?

    I am going to show that I was self taught.....

    Re: I am going to show that I was self taught..... +Woha+! That would be awesome if you could assign an entire layer to overprint in ID.

    Permissions on Mac Serv 10.4 /Leop

    Re: Permissions on Mac Serv 10.4 /Leop not so sure it is a Leopard only issue. We are running an apple server with X-san and having a few permissions problems right now.
