  • Nothing is so annoying as ruining your original test files while you're creating a complex fixup or process plan. In pdfToolbox 10 you can resolve this and work much faster thanks to the new 'Test' mode.
  • It's usually not hard to check if objects are where they should be, but what about checking if a certain area has no content? You may want to check whether the area where an address will be printed is empty? This is possible using a Check for Ink Coverage within a custom area.

  • For some imposition layouts, you want to be able to cut and stack the resulting sheet. For numbering schemes this can be important for example. This webinar explains how that can be accomplished.
  • The imposition engine in pdfToolbox can be used to split a layout (such as a table throw) and put the pieces into a different configuration (for example for optimized printing).

  • Rendering images using the Ray Tracer in iC3D requires a strong computer with a good GPU, and even then it may still take longer than you'd like. One way to be more efficient is to use Distributed Rendering. With this feature, you can use leftover processing capability from other computers on your network to help render the images faster.
  • pdfToolbox is capable of doing color conversions using regular ICC profiles, but it can also use DeviceLink profiles. Using specially crafted DeviceLink profiles from ColorLogic is an affordable way to reduce ink in PDF documents to what is needed for a specific printing purpose. This webinar talks about theory and practice!


Product: treeDiM Picador
Date: October 23, 2018

  • Picador has a feature with which you can instantly load Technical Data Sheets from customizable templates which use variables and calculations to fill in data. We will show you how to create a template yourself and how to apply it to your design.

  • Over the years, organisations such as ISO and the Ghent Workgroup have developed different preflight standards. When you hear terms such as PDF/X-1a, PDF/X-4, GWG 1v4, GWG 2015 ... what do they mean and which standards should you use in your organization? This webinar will explain the theoretical differences and show how to use them in practice.

  • While there is no ready-made export and import functionality to migrate your Hot Folder setup to a new pdfToolbox Server installation, there is actually a quick way to move all your queue's at once.
  • There are no new Switch configurators for pdfToolbox 10. Instead, you have to manually update the path to the binary. In this webinar, we will show you how.
