Dynagram of Montreal launched what it calls a major version upgrade for its PDF-based inpO2 imposition software. Version 5.0 of inpO2, compatible with Acrobat XI and OS 10.8, includes several Document Manager improvements for easier management of the run list.
Document Manager within inpO2 v5 now allows users to insert or replace document pages, and move documents or pages inside the run list, with drag-and-drop of single tree nodes. The upgrades allow for quicker access to the run list from the contextual menu of the selected page, allowing users to visually set or adjust documents from the light table.
With inpO2 v5, prepress workflows for single-page PDF files can now handle multiple page adjustments at once, using a range of pages as well as render an unlimited amount of PDF documents in the same job.
PDF page thumbnails can now be displayed with inpO2 – instead of high-resolution PDFs. These rendering thumbnails are part of a new built-in inpO2 Working Profile and can be selected when creating custom profiles.
The Wizard of inpO2 v5 has been enhanced with an option for single- or double-sided Text Marks. It is also possible to override the spine gutter value (zero by default) for saddle-stitch bindings.
As well, customers who need to manually modify jobs generated with the Layout Manager (.mlay) or the Assembly Manager (.ably) of inpO2 can now do so with the “Export to Layout” function. Text marks and side guides can be placed on one or both sheet sides, and may follow the work style (turning axis of the sheet) for double-side positioning.
Dynagram also added functionality into version 5.0 of inpO2 for the exchange of presets between workstations. The Import or Export can be done for one type of Presets (Sheet, Imported mark) or globally for all user Presets. Imported Presets can either replace existing ones or can be merged. Should a different Preset with the same name exist, the conflict will be detected and a suffix will be appended to the file name.
