OSX version
Is there a recommended Mac OS for use with Prinergy? We're not using that many apps outside of Adobe stuff and Suitcase for fonts. Right now we're running 10.10.5 Yosemite.

Thanks!

What version of Prinergy are you running? For the latest release, 8.0.2, the release notes show: Mac OS X 10.8, 10.9, 10.10, 10.11, and macOS Sierra (10.12). I can tell you from personal experience that there are issues with Sierra though. For 7.5.1 it shows: Mac OS X 10.8, 10.9, 10.10 and 10.11.

Thanks Joe.
We're running Prinergy 8.02. I saw those release notes, but also know they tend to test in their own little bubble world. 
I need to do a few clean installs and was wondering if it was time to update all the macs to something over 10.10.5.

What problems come up with 10.12?

Nothing Earth shattering but sometimes there is a delay when you click on something. Like renaming a job, copying a job, or opening a VPS. The opening a VPS was the most aggravating as you would open it and it would take about 5 seconds before anything would happen. It was still that way last Friday and now today it no longer has the delay when opening the VPS. I think Apple must have had a silent update over the weekend.

I did all clean installs of all Macs to Sierra, old and new, at the end of last year when we got new batch of iMacs. I wanted everyone running the same version of OS X.

Funny, I see VPS thing here at times and my version is ancient. I also see it take forever somedays to refresh, like normalize a job, go do something else and still minutes after the file finishes, it doesn't show the refined file. It's weird that it comes and goes with seemingly no reason.

So those issues are features and not bugs?

It does use an Adobe engine. Maybe it's contagious.

We are looking to upgrade to Prinergy 8.1 from Prinergy 6. Kodak supported Mac OS10.8 and OS10.9 for Prinergy 8.0 clients (Workshop) but only list OS10.10 and up for Prinergy 8.1.  I know a lot of times they don't list the earlier MacOS's because they didn't feel like testing it or the installer doesn't work and you have to manually install.

Is anyone using Prinergy 8.1 with Mac OS10.9.5?

The Prinergy installer does check the OS version and won't run on a version that Kodak hasn't given its blessing for. In my experience it will work by copying from a machine that it is already installed on but I've only done it for an OS X version that is newer. Never tried when the OS is older than what Kodak specifies. Only one way to find out I suppose.
