Release Notes 1.11.0 - Durst Workflow

With version 1.11.0, users can take advantage of several innovations in the environment of the Montage Editor, the release reports and the management of print data. In addition, improvements have been made in the area of editing and outputting print data as well as translations.

Innovations in version 1.11.0

Bright Theme
The user interface of the Montage Editor has been adapted to the workflow and therefore the editor opens again in the workflow and in the light design from now on.
Add edge strengthening

In the assembly mode Tiling, it is possible to add an edge reinforcement. This is displayed to the user in colour and can thus be distinguished from the overlap.

Schneidelinien hinzufügen
Plate templates in the editor

For the first time, it is possible to store layouts for printing plates, which are required for conventional printing, as templates. These can then be used for mounting.

Assembly sheet template in the editor

From this version onwards, the user can save all assembly sheet configurations in a template and reuse them.

Erweiterte Motiv-Einstellungen
Markierungen für beidseitiges Nesting
Colour bars in the editor

It is possible to create colour bars in the Montage Editor, which are used to activate the nozzles in the production run.

Motive templates

Motif templates are now available which can be created, edited, saved and applied to all motifs in a montage - for example, a set scaling factor.

Neue Marken
Placeholder for labels

Additional placeholders for the cutting file name, as well as which ink saving profile (low, medium, extreme) is used, are available for selection.

Area units of measurement in Workflow

In the system settings, a preferred unit of measurement for the area - square metre or square foot - can be stored. This unit of measurement is used in all areas of the workflow.

Limit processes

The number of processes to be processed in parallel in the workflow can be limited, so the utilisation of the hardware can be better controlled.

180º Rotation

In the Transmit to Printer dialogue you now have the option to rotate each even or odd page by 180º.

Vanguard Printer

From this version onwards, direct control of a Vanguard printer is possible in the workflow. The printer can be created, managed, profiled and subsequently used for production jobs.

Optimierung für Nesting
 Approval report

From now on, release and ink cost reports are created in separate areas.  In the course of this, the range of functions for creating and managing release reports, including versioning, has been expanded.

 Ink cost reports

The creation of ink cost reports has been fundamentally revised, so the report is now created in the Statistics tab. This means that a report can be created directly for each ink cost calculation.

 Ink cost calculation

The calculation and also the display of ink costs have been newly implemented in this version and the range of functions has been extended. In order to better compare ink costs, a new, improved view has been added.

 ZIP hotfolder for multiple print series

With the possibility of controlling several print rows/lanes on a P5 350 and P5 210, this function is now also available in the workflow. The print series and the print sequence can be stored when creating a hotfolder.

Hotfolder Deletion

Deleting paused hotfolders as well as already processed hotfolder elements (motifs/orders) is now possible.

Processing PDF/VT

In order to be able to process PDF/VT files in the workflow, another render option "EHVD" was implemented for production jobs.

Extension in the check-in process

A preflight warning is issued for very complex print data if the "content stream" of a file exceeds three megabytes.

Convert spot colours to DeviceN

The licence information tab of the system status dialogue now shows for which workflow version the licence is issued.

Licence authorisation

As of this version, the function "Use version" can be executed in the article or motif detail view via the action menu in the action bar.

Pre- and after-run for Tau/VariJet

For the Tau and VariJet printing systems, it is possible to transfer pre- and/or post-print separately to the printer without having to render the entire job.
