Copy and paste between preps documents
« on: November 02, 2021, 11:53:56 AM »
Hi, was wondering if anyone has found a way or knows of a way to paste an object, mark or page or whatever between 2 preps documents.  Opening a document, copying a mark, closing and opening another document, preps does not seem to hold on to what is on the clipboard.  Any way to do this?

Thanks in advance

Add the second template as another sig into the same job. Copy and paste from it then delete the extra sig.

Let me explain by giving you an example:  I have 65 perfect bound covers, all with several different spine sizes. Fortunately there are 5 spines sizes.  What I'd like to do is copy and paste the spine and hinge marks from say, 1 with the correct distance to 7 others.  Then do that again for other sizes to the rest of the books.

Building on Joe's suggestion, rather than have 65 different templates with 1 sig each, you could have 1 template that contains 65 sigs. This will allow you to copy/paste from one sig to another within the same template.

Or make them SmartMarks and then you can drag them in as needed.
