Next session is January 7th at 4pm Central European time.
We'll also record the session and send it to all those who registered.

We'll also add the URL to the PitStop user group on Linkedin.

Here's the link for registration in case anyone is interested. http://bit.ly/pitstopjanuaryworkshop

Today's webinar was pretty good!
The pitstop edit form tool was interesting.
It's the one that looks like dashed box with an arrow.
He had a spot transparency that didn't show transparency in the inspector
but when he click on it with that tool it did.


Cleared up the AND and OR for me too.

Yup! Much thanks to ABC  :cool:

and remember, you can watch recordings if you can't make the 7am webex
Title: Re: Free Enfocus training webinars
Post by: abc on October 09, 2015, 06:49:50 AM
Emails just went out with the link to the recording. Also included an invite to a 'sneak peak ' of the next PitStop version.

If you want to get involved you can register for all upcoming sessions on this link. http://bit.ly/12monthsofPitStopWorkshops

One other point. We are always looking for content for these sessions, so if there is anything you want covered just let me know. If you have sample files that we can use to illustrate issues that's even better. The whole concept is about helping you get more out of your investment in PitStop.

This last session is the 12th in the series so we have 12 hours of workshops on the Official PitStop user group on Linkedin available for download. What I also do is add timelined agendas so you can jump straight to the part that's interesting for you.

Today's webinar was about spot colors and color spaces
LAB spot is still perplexing to me, but I'll keep learning!

do you guys preflight for LAB Spot when you have to convert to cmyk?
I just convert, haven't had any issues yet.

actually I just convert and don't even look for the alternate color space
is this bad?

Oh and I heard pitstop will have the current pantone library in the near future
Title: Re: Free Enfocus training webinars
Post by: Joe on January 06, 2016, 04:56:56 PM
Hey I was there and I didn't see you!

We do not check spots for LAB values as Prinergy is not yet using them so it still converts them to the old values. I'm sure we'll get bitten sooner or later though.

I got bit by this. It was a spot color job that used a new color so prinergy will still have the separation with the right number when you plate it but in the proofs it just shows up as white. I forget how I sorted it but it's possible.

Hi all, Happy New Year.

Probably not worthy of a full webinar but I'd sure like someone to explain to me how these boxes work. They are illogical to the CPU in my brain and have yet to figure out how they work.

If you ever have a chance to go over changing a range of color, like different 4 color blacks
You covered it before tho, so no big.
and selecting and changing something by position in the doc.
You covered it before tho, so no big. :laugh:

Title: Re: Free Enfocus training webinars
Post by: abc on January 12, 2016, 05:13:19 PM
No problem, we had people from 43 countries attend the last one. Not everyone can attend the live sessions, so the recordings are well received and often re-distributed.
If you have questions or topics for the next one, just let me know.
I'm happy to go over anything you may have.
Title: Re: Free Enfocus training webinars
Post by: born2print on January 14, 2016, 05:06:36 PM
just fyi, the January recording glitched (actually webex did while live) at around 15 min. mark, just keep going - it recovered in about 1 min.

It's definitely not one for the faint hearted, but they do add a lot of power, especially with regards to working with Spot Colors etc.
I knew it would be a little techie, but I think it's really good to have the content available as a reference.

At the end we add some nice use cases, I really liked the example from one of the attendees about picking up customer colors when they have typos!
Even if people just start by using wildcards, it will have added value.

I attended. Started off showing how to search a PDF for text and then went on to show how you can also search for basically anything in a PDF including color values. Then scaling pages - page boxes and content proportionately or not. Pretty interesting.

Plugging them again. You only need to sign up once now, it's saved for any future sessions.

Learning anything takes time and practice. But it's so much easier when you have someone who's got your back. Someone who you can ask questions, and someone who understands your needs and what you are trying to achieve.

That's why since October 2014, Enfocus have been holding free monthly online training workshops for users of PitStop Pro and PitStop Server.

The great thing about these sessions is that our users set the agenda. In the past we have tackled topics like Preflight, Color Management, PDF Standards, Action Lists, Automation, and Smart Preflight. But we also don't ignore those little things that enable our users to get more out of our software, and help fix those annoying little PDF problem jobs that drive you crazy.

The sessions are held every first Wednesday of the month at 4pm Central European time and are timeboxed to 1 hour.

Registration is required and the sessions are recorded and distributed afterwards to everyone who has taken the time to register, even if they can't make the live session.

The next session is on Wednesday 4th December, and you can register for it, and all subsequent sessions on the following link. https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/7150388400116513036

If you can't wait that long and want to jump straight in now. You can immediately start our online training courses on the Enfocus eLearning platform, there you can learn about other Enfocus products like Enfocus Switch. https://www.enfocus.com/en/learn
