Softproofs and JDF workflow
« on: February 12, 2013, 10:27:02 AM »
Currently I'm using Nexus and Preps - I send a JDF from Preps to Nexus. We're pretty well locked in to Preps and our millions of templates. The PITA is when we do softproofs, I have no way of taking that imposed JDF and splitting all the pages out as singles, while maintaining any positioning offsets applied in the Preps Run List (we frequently have to reposition pages.) Instead, I have to switch out the signatures in Preps for single page signatures, then send a different JDF to Nexus to generate my soft proof.

So, does anyone who uses Rampage know if this is possible in Rampage? We're probably going to start looking at it later in the year and I just want some early info from users.
