Enfocus / Re: PitStop 2018 just announced. Ships in April

Hi Frailer
Download the DMG then you can use it on all machines etc.
As you correctly said, when you activate PitStop is tied to a machine finger print.

This is how I would do it.
Leave the macs that are being decommissioned alone at the moment.
Install PitStop 2018 (released today 24th April) and Acrobat on the new macs.
Activate them as a free 30-day trial. So you have the both the old and the new with PitStop available.
run the new machines for a few weeks to make sure everything is ok and you have copied all your old Action Lists and settings etc from the old machines.
Then when you are happy all is ok, deactivate PitStop on the two old macs, when you do this there is an option to save the license files. So save them.
Then use those license files you've saved to activate the PitStop's on the two new macs.
Job done.

Sheesh. Finally, we have 2 upgraded CC seats. Have 2 printed out upgraded Maintenance license sheets with Key and Serial Nos.

Rusty on this... procedure, Readers' Digest, if you can...something like...

-get on to Enfocus website.
-seek download(s). (can we use the 1 download DMG?).
-the 2 maintenance units will replace current ones on to-be-decommissioned iMacs, so new install, new Acrobat Pro CC, on new iMacs.

Now I believe PitStop is machine tethered. My query is whether the new licenses are in themselves tethered to one or other of the current PSPs.
Or, can we randomly plug in either one to Acrobat on each iMac?

So many questions. My head hurts. It's ANZAC Day tomorrow; my compadre will be in Thursday, we'll nut it out, but some intel would be great; been a while.

Fujifilm XMF / Re: Automated PDF generation with company logo / job info

Tracy, you will find it in –  Administrator / Templates / Workflow Items Templates.

Drew, another way of doing it would be to (make a PDF of you company logo and import as a Mark) create as Intelligent Mark and lock it to the bleed of the job. If the template is set to Auto page size it will adjust automatically with the job size. You can run all the other bits of info you need as a slug line.

I have a template that Has a really big sheet size and then it is set to clip to clipping margins so It doesn't matter
what the sheet size is, this was created for me by Fuji and I can't find it in the templates, It's prolly somewhere
in the administrator, I will look where it is at. So if you set to clip at margins you can create a template with
Job slug etc.. I got it to work but I had to modify my template because my template isn't set for a job slug.

Try creating a template with a very large sheet size (40x28)?
and put all the job slug and parameters that you want, clip to clipping margins and see if it works.

Here is a screen shot

I just happen to get a pdf today that will not go through my rip, that I think could be fixed with this new version. Specificly the Crop Line Art function. Any chance this will be released, or maybe ABC would be willing to give it a go?

I'm not sure how automated it might be but I know you can save marks and slug line settings as presets and apply them with a dropdown menu. Creating the "sheet size" and such of the PDF might be a bit more of a headache though. I have to make PDF proofs for one customer that requests files at just the trim size (no marks bleed or anything) and it takes quite a bit of finagling to get there. I'm looking for better ways to do everything in XMF all the time though so hopefully someone will know better than I.

Off topic but you could create an action from Pitstop to change the media, crop, and bleed box to the trim box size though you wouldn't want to apply that to your production pages. We do something similar in Prinergy for soft proofs where Prinergy will let you export the normalized PDF as a PDF without traps at trim size in one shot.
