Proof Form in XMF?
« on: March 01, 2019, 03:30:50 PM »
Is there a way to generate a Proof form in XMF? What I mean is something that takes the PDF size, generates extra media/crop box around it and populates an area with the colors used in the file the name of the file and what not? We toured a packaging plant here in town and they have something that does that but they're using Esko Automation Engine.

We had a blunder here where we proof dielines and artwork separate (on two pages of the same PDF). This caused a problem when the art of a job extended into another panel on a folder and us in prepress are trying to find a way to "fix" this and I figured some kind of cool form would be nifty.

Thanks!

can you create a template for you pdfs with a job slug including file name and color seps?
you can tell it what sheet size to use and clip to sheet instead of clip to margins.
