Advice and suggestiongs on two sided impo proofing

I'm on 8. No problems. Nice improvement to the Find command in the Job Finder is about the only thing I notice being different.
Henceforth we shall just call it 'Cheap InDesign'.
They really need to change the name. I already shudder when someone says they have their file all setup and did it in Publisher.
Since this is vid of an Alpha build, and it's not even slated (so far) or a release until 2018 I'd imagine it will be a lot more polished. Not sure why they'd even release a clip this far away from a V1 product, maybe just proof of concept? I've been watching them for at least a year now since they said they had a page layout app coming, so I'll definitely be a Day 1 buyer too.
I watch my web guys fight with the bustle too... a couple of them have it down to a fine art and I believe it is. If the lead is gone and they run multi-web, I guarantee most of the extra spoils will be because of bustle problems... either with fit or with wrinkles and gussets on the inner webs. It's tricky controlling a string of thin wood with air and rollers.
Yeah, same here. I use the current settings in the middle with higher and lower flanking them. What I'm wondering about is if the test image matters if it's positive or negative. It shouldn't matter is what I'm thinking but when I ran the tests yesterday I did not see a difference between any of them.
I did put a micrometer on the plate and what should be .012 actually was slightly under .011. I'm going to run both focus and fluence tests with 2 different sets of values. One based on the .012 that's listed and one based on the .011 that I'm actually seeing.
Same situation here as with Joe,
Sheetfed is fine, however webs need web growth compensation.
At the moment they use only bustle wheels but on really think and crappy stocks bustle breaks the web so I am looking into web growth software right now. I demoed Agfa software for about 3 months, it was really good, now I am looking at Heidelberg tool, it seems more capable but we'll see.
I'm trying to fix our plating issues. All the targets I have are for positive plates. The Azura TS is a negative plate. Does the target matter or do I need to invert the image? I only ask because the first test I ran didn't produce the results that were expected. I don't want to waste more plates going down the wrong path.
Just use the same target. Shadow end becomes highlight end and vice versa.
