« on: November 02, 2020, 02:50:52 AM »
Hello!

Can everyone told me how i can put automatically in text mark the work style (in the text mark i want to see PERFECTOR, SHEETSWISE etc...)... text required by printing colleagues.

$JOBNAME COALA $sig  FATA $Side  $SheetHeight $SheetWidth $date  $time

Thanks you!

There isn't a text variable for 'work style' as far as I can see. I think you could manually put it in the Preps job comments and add the comments to the mark.

$[Workstyle] does the trick for me. You may or may not need the brackets - I use Prinergy so it needs them.

I didn't see that in the Preps manual. Could it just be a Prinergy mark?

I was not using it either, probably because it was not in the manual, but I just tested $[Workstyle], and MAN that's sweet. I will be using that in our shop.

For me it works in Prinergy but not in stand alone Preps.

I've only tried it with Preps and Prinergy. But it stands to reason, if it's not in the manual for Preps it wouldn't work on it's own. And since [Workstyle] is a column in Prinergy, it does seem to make sense that it works there.

Even in Preps exist one column named  [Workstyle]. From there you choose the way to choose to print jobs.. sheetwise, perfector, single sided...
