Synchronization of output sizes and punch calibration

At A Glance:

The PlateMaker Link task processor will now automatically synchronize output sizes and punch calibration from Apogee Prepress to Apogee PlateMaker.

How It Works:

When the PlateMaker Link is started it will send any new or updated output sizes and punch calibrations from Apogee Prepress to Apogee PlateMaker. This functionality is turned on by default.

PlateMaker Link Processing configuration

  1. Add an output size and punch calibration on the Prepress system.
  2. Add output size

  3. Right-click the PlateMaker Link task in System Overview and select Restart.
  4. PlateMaker Link iconRestart PlateMaker Link

    A restart of the entire Apogee Prepress System will produce the same effect.

  5. After the restart completes, you will see the newly added output size on the PlateMaker.
  6. Results before and after PlateMaker Link synchronization


Why is this Important?

Prior to this functional change in Apogee Prepress 7, scripts were required to synchronize resources between PlateMaker and Prepress. Now a simple restart of the PlateMaker Link on the Prepress system will ensure that the two systems are in sync.
