Planned for release in the third quarter, Montreal-based Dynagram introduces a new feature called Layout Re-flow to version 6.0 of its flagship DynaStrip 6.0 software. In addition, the company states its work-styles functionality has been completely reworked to the advantage of work-and-turn jobs.
On the light table, when adding a sheet with a work-and-turn – or work-and-tumble – attribute, a symmetry axis line will be drawn in the middle of the surface to split it in two halves, simulating the front and the back. When placing objects, such as pages or marks, on the front half of a sheet, the back-half is automatically mirrored for alignment and visual confirmations. This feature, according to the company, eases the creation of multi-sheet jobs when using work-and-turn work-styles and in gang-run production.
The all-new Layout Re-flow feature allows users to modify layout attributes, page and sheet marks on the first signature or modify the document list and then, by clicking the Re-Flow button, the entire job is re-flowed based on all the new changes.
