Export from TLW file
« on: January 26, 2010, 08:09:52 AM »
I have a customer that has submitted a PSTI file for us to run (5/c). Unfortunately we have to outsource the printing. The printer cannot use PSTI files. I have exported out a DCS2 - the printer does not like that either. The file is all linework - I tried to convert to a PDF - but it did not separate out correctly.

Any ideas of how to help this printer out?

Thanks in advance

haushold,

Send me a PM.  We got a Workflow from a customer (that I haven't used in a few years) that converts PSTI file to a LNK file.  Maybe you can use it or modify it to get some kind of usable file.

Isn't a LNK file just a link to the PSTI file in which they would still need Nexus to process?

I tried to convert to a PDF - but it did not separate out correctly.


How did you create the PDF? Using the PSTI to PDF module in Nexus should give you a usable PDF. Or you could also just output a 1200 or 2400 dpi tiff file.
